Weekly Wednesday Workout: Side Sit Ups

This week we are working on our obliques!

First, I love how chill she is about this exercise–who needs workout clothes to exercise anyway? Throw on a pair of your favorite jeans and you are good to go! I love all three versions of this exercise, the great thing about working the obliques is that you almost always feel it the next day! I would recommend the first version as that is the easiest and the one I do the most. The second and third version is definitely for the pros.

Have you ever tried side sit ups?

I have never done these! Can’t wait to try…as soon as I find my jeans of course 🙂

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 9:56 pm

LOL she was just too fly in her jeans!!

Janine Huldie April 16, 2014 - 7:15 am

Taking your advice and sticking to the first when I try these, because the other two probably would hurt me in some shape or form! 🙂

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 9:55 pm

yes the first would definitely work best for you!

Love that she is wearing jeans and just regular I can almost relate no pressure at all.

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 9:03 pm

Tamara April 16, 2014 - 10:26 am

ha! I was thinking the same thing! I don’t even own workout gear. I’m the worst. She reminds me of me in that way. She’s adorable. And doing such difficult exercise in jeans!

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 9:01 pm

Right?! she made it look so effortless!

Kim April 16, 2014 - 11:15 am

HaHa – love the jeans!!
I did a move very similar to this just this morning but I was lying on my BOSU!

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 9:00 pm

somehow the bosu seems so much tougher!!

FitBritt April 16, 2014 - 3:59 pm

Oh yes. These are killer. I have also done these in a side plank version!

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 8:55 pm

Let’s talk about the lady in the picture. I want her arms!!!!!!!!!!!

With those jeans on, she is doing the most! She was like, let me knock this video out before I go to the store. Love it!

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 8:24 pm

I know, when I saw that picture, I said she is gonna be my motivation!!

LOL I know right? I can’t function properly in my jeans shes like let me go teach a exercise video…lol!

LaShawn April 16, 2014 - 7:45 pm

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 8:23 pm

She was SO chill tho!!

Leslie April 16, 2014 - 10:14 pm

I’ve only been working with a couple different oblique exercises, so adding these would be a great change-up.

Nellie April 20, 2014 - 8:15 pm

Awesome Leslie!

Michelle April 16, 2014 - 10:31 pm
