Tip from Orleans ON Chiropractor
Alternating Oblique Crunches
This core exercise, the alternating oblique crunch, is working the oblique muscles, the sides of the abdomen.
Start: Lie on back with knees and hips bent to 90 degrees and feet elevated. Both hands should be behind head/neck with elbows to sides.
- Keeping hands behind neck, curl forward so shoulders are just off the floor.
- Then, bring right elbow across body to touch left knee. As left knee is brought up toward chest, straighten right leg.
- Pause, then bring left elbow across body to touch right knee, straightening left leg. Alternate sides for 10-15 repetitions per side.
