Weekly Wednesday Workout: Side V-Ups

Today we are getting back to the obliques!

httpv://youtu.be/gxBOxA2OMgU

I feel like I might have done something like this before so forgive me if I am getting repetitive! 🙂 I like this move, it is perfect for targeting that muffin top! If you notice, in the video the woman has a little towel under her hip so that would be good for hard floors. I have carpet in my living room so no towel worries here. Everytime I do this workout I feel super sore the next day so based on that its a good one for the obliques. Side V-Ups are also perfect for TV time! 🙂

Have you ever tried Side V-Ups?

It’s funny how such a small move can make you so sore! I’ve had the same experience with this one. It sneaks up on you!!

Okay, I DEFINITELY welcome an anti-muffin top maneuver! I am honestly not sure I am coordinated to do this. It looks easy enough, but I wonder if I can actually squench (totally a word) myself together while on my side without falling over. I am excited to try!! –Lisa

I need that little towel trick! Even on a cushy mat these always hurt my hips. They are super tough though!

Definitely a good choice for a workout! No doubt it gets not only the obliques but the whole core including the lower abs.

No worries if you have! It was do for a refresher even if we’ve seen it before. I know Kim will be appreciative. IDK know how yall come up with all this stuff! It must take time for you to plan out these posts.

Yes, lots of research! Kim is better than me however because she actually DOES all her exercises haha

I am a reformed gym rat, who had a c-section 6 months ago. Finding workouts that target the obliques and abdominal area are crucial to me right now. I will be doing this tomorrow evening!

Being sore is the only indication for me that I did something right! 🙂
