December 14, 2014 ● 1,163 views

This exercise alters the ordinary sit-up so that it targets the oblique muscles for a narrower, more defined waistline. 

  1. Lie flat on your back, body in neutral, knees bent and feet in line with your hips.
  2. Drop your knees to one side, keeping your shoulders and upper back in contact with the floor.
  3. Place hands behind your head and bring your shoulders up taking care that you’re completing the movement using your abdominal muscles and not compensating with any others.
  4. Hold the crunch for a few seconds and return to neutral keeping your knees on the floor. Do 6-8 reps like this before switching to the other side. Continue through 1-3 sets.
