Side Crunch With Leg Lift Instructions

  1. The side crunch with leg lift is a great exercise for hitting the abs and obliques. Grab a mat and lay down on your left side.
  2. Your legs should be straight and together. Your left arm should go across your stomach and your hand touching the area you're going to work.
  3. Your right arm should be touching the right side of your head (not holding your head, only touch with your finger tips).
  4. In one motion, lift your right leg up and crunch into your right side.
  5. Pause, then lower back to the starting position.
  6. Repeat for desired reps and them do the same for your other side.

Exercise Tips:

  1. Hold the top position for longer to increase intensity.
