Side-lying Oblique Crunch

  • Lay on your right hip on the ball, left leg forward and right leg crossed underneath. Place your hands behind your head or cross your arms over your chest.

  • Lift your torso off the ball towards the ceiling. Lower your body keeping your hips stacked vertically.

  • Abdominals 

  • External and internal abdominal obliques

  • TIP: Wear shoes that will not slip on the surface you are on, or place your feet against a wall. Place your hands behind your head in order to support your neck.
