Weekly Wednesday Workout: Oblique Crunches

 

So I was actually looking for something else when I found this video, but I liked this one more so I will share it with you guys:

A while ago I spotlighted a similar workout with the Plank with Oblique Crunch, but this one is different. This time you are on your side as opposed to being in plank position the entire time. As far as easy goes, I definitely would not consider this one easy. I think anyone can do it yes, but how many you can do is relative. I have done these before, not recently, but when I have done them boy did I feel them in the morning!

Have you every done this type of oblique crunch?

Absolutely! Definitely a good one and great for teaching in class b/c everyone can do it. Not sure if she showed some modifications on the video (my kids are still sleeping so I can’t play it!) but if you bend your knees in, it will make it a little easier! Thanks for another great tip!!

Yes, thanks for that. Bending the knees in definitely makes it easier.

I think that this is the same move I always call a side plank dip – it’s a good move for sure!!!

Nellie August 14, 2013 - 8:21 pm

Yes, that is totally the same Kim!

Is it weird that I played the video over to see her cute dog in the background? Very well behaved! I like this move! And I like her explanations about how to do it right, and how people often screw it up.

It was the FIRST thing I noticed, that dog was being SO good! Then I watched the actual exercise 🙂

I know, I’m wondering how many of these I have to do to get rid of them forever?!

I like my love handles…no one has ever said. lol. I need to do these everyday all day. I have love handles and there’s no love about it.

Reply
Nellie August 14, 2013 - 8:15 pm

LOL right? I would have a lot more love WITHOUT the handles!!

Oblique crunchies! I envision myself cheating: lay too far down on floor and fall asleep.
