This is how to do the Oblique Crunch Exercise. It’s an excellent, yet difficult exercise, for strengthening and toning your oblique muscles and the ab muscles around the oblique muscles. Basically this exercise helps you to get rid of your love handles or muffin tops.

It’s a pretty difficult exercise, so if you are unable to do it, try the Standing Oblique Side Bend exercise with dumbbells. It's much easier and will accomplish the same for you.

I have also filmed a video for this exercise, but it’s a little hard to see the position of your body for the complete movement. I think this text description should help.

Here is how you do this exercise:
  • Lie flat on the floor with your legs bent and hands behind your head.
  • Twist your legs to your left side so that your legs touch the floor. Your hands on your head will remain in the middle so that your upper body (chest and shoulders) gets turned more to the right and your lower body (your abs and obliques are more on your side). There is a natural twisting of your body.
  • From this position slowly raise yourself using only your obliques and abs.
  • Now lower yourself using your obliques and abs.
  • Remember breathe out as you raise yourself and breathe in as you lower yourself.
  • Now repeat the movement by moving your legs to your right side to workout your obliques from the opposite side.
  • I do only 1 set of 12 to16 slow repetitions of this exercise and 1 to 2 times per week.
Here is the short video demonstrating how to perform this exercise.
