Oblique V Crunch Instructions
1. Lie on your right side with your legs fully extended and your left hand behind your head.
2. Raise both legs and your torso simultaneously, try touching your left knee with your left elbow and squeeze the abs.
3. Return to the starting position, repeat, and then switch sides.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Start each rep with your shoulder on the mat and, as you breathe out, bend at the waist and raise your legs and your torso at the same time. Keep your legs straight and lift them at a 45-degree angle. Reach your elbow toward the knee and inhale as you lower your upper body and legs back to the starting position.
