Weekly Wednesday Workout: Reclined Oblique Twist

 

So this is one that I’ve actually never seen before. This one is targeted to the obliques but also does some good work for the abs. It’s like a funky twist (pun intended) to the basic crunch.

This exercise is actually not too bad! What I like about it is that the strain is minimal, sometimes when I do crunches I start to feel the pressure in my neck, so I like the fact that the hands aren’t pulling on the neck–they are extending. Try it! It is a fun addition and/or shake up your ab routine.

 

Have you ever tried a Reclined Oblique Twist? Will you try it now?!

Yeah, I like the extra support she is providing by leaning on the elbow as well. I haven’t see that one either.

There are like three levels, level two lifts the legs, level 3 lifts the legs and the torso!

Kind of reminds me of the Turkish Get-up done with a kettlebell.

I like this exercise because I have a bad neck. It really helps to prevent straining yourself and waking up with a neck that you can’t move because it hurts.
