Dumbbell Side Bend Overview

Dumbbell side bends work the muscles of the sides of the body, including the obliques. This exercise is often included in workouts to help tone and slim the waistline. Additionally, dumbbell side-bends can help improve core strength and stability.

How to do it

  1. start by standing up tall with your feet hip-width apart.
  2. Hold a dumbbell in your left hand and place your right hand on your hip. 
  3. Keeping your core engaged, bend to the side as far as you can while keeping your back straight. 
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side. 
  5. Aim for 10-12 reps on each side.

    Side Bend Tips

    1. Keep your core engaged throughout the entire exercise.
    2. Move slowly and with control, avoiding any jerky movements.
    3. Bend only as far as you can while keeping your back straight.
    4. Focus on using the muscles of the sides of the body to move, rather than swinging the dumbbell.
