Side Crunch Overview

Side crunches, also known as oblique crunches, are your perfect moves for increasing core strength. They activate the abdominal muscles and obliques (the sides of your body).

No equipment is required to do an abs workout — you can do it at home and at the gym.

How to Do It

  1. Lie on your back, your knees bent, and your feet on the floor (like you're doing a sit-up). 
  2. Keep your upper body straight while lowering your knees to one side. 
  3. Your knees should be stacked on top of one another while your legs are still bent. 
  4. Squeeze your sides, lift your shoulders while keeping your lower back on the floor. 
  5. Switch sides to repeat.

Tips on Side Crunch

  1. Maintain the proper posture for reaping the maximum benefit of exercise.
  2. Do not overdo this exercise: slow and steady wins the race when it comes to side crunches.
