Oblique Exercise with Leg Over a Chair or Barre

by Addie Kelzer

Work your obliques with this all-inclusive exercise!

Obliques help you side bend and twist*. This exercise works both those functions of your obliques! Be sure you pull your belly button back toward your spine so you really work your obliques and don’t strain your back.

Only bend as far as you can control with your obliques. That may mean you don’t go very far down when you start this exercise and that is ok!

*If you aren’t supposed to twist due to an injury, leave out the second half of this exercise and just do the bends.
