Weighted Standing Side Crunch
Move Targets: Obliques
Step 1: Grab a dumbbell and let it hang at arm’s length on your left side. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, feet pointing forward and abs tight. Bend your other arm and tuck your hand behind your head.
Step 2 : Keeping your core tight, lean to your left letting the weight guide your body. Do not bend at the neck or break your posture. Focus on lowering the weight.
Step 3: Aim to lower the weight to your knee, then slowly lift it and your upper body back to standing position. Do as many repetitions as you can in 60 seconds. 30 seconds for each.
Modification (Beginner): Drop the weight and do not dip down as low. Aim to lower your weight to the mid thigh.
