Hi, I'm Amber Nimedez with LIVESTRONG.COM, and today I'm going to teach you two oblique exercises. Because having strong obliques means having a nice, strong back and a strong core. What I'm going to have you do, is grab some weights, I have three pounders today. And I'm going to go ahead and sit up into a nice boat pose position. I'm going to lift my legs up in the air and then, I'm just going to twist my body over to the right, back to center and over to the left. Okay, and if this is too difficult for you today, you can bring your feet down and do the same movement. You feel this in your obliques and your core and your hips, you're doing it right. The next one, is a hip crossover, cross and oblique crunch. So, I'm going to go ahead and cross my right ankle over the left knee, towards my body, down. I'm going to go ahead and support my neck with my left hand, my right arm is out to the side, palm facing up. I'm going to push my knee away from my body. And I'm going to go ahead and an oblique crunch to the right. And I feel this right in my right side oblique, as well as my right outer hip. And then, I'm going to switch sides, cross your left leg over your right. You're going to twist this down to the ground, you're going to support your neck with your right hand. And you're going to crunch over to the left side. Feeling this all throughout the left side of my core and outer part of my right hip. I would do two sets of 25 each oblique exercise. And that'll help your develop a nice, strong core to protect your back. I'm Amber Nimedez with LIVESTRONG.COM.
