No equipment needed! Target the obliques with these 3 exercises: 

  • 20 Oblique Tucks (each side) 
  • 40 Elbow Taps (beginner = hands in, next level = elbows out to the sides)
  • 20 Cross Crunches 

Focus on contracting the area between your bottom rib and the top of your pelvis, the sides of your abs. Shorten that distance to concentrate each move to the obliques. 

Remember to keep your core engaged throughout, especially in the side-to-side movements so you protect your lower back. .
