Move of the Month - Side Oblique Crunch by Will Meyers

This is my favorite of the core exercises. A strong core helps with proper posture as well as preventing injury to the back which is the most common injury.

Side oblique crunches focus on the internal and external oblique muscles. These are the abdominal muscles located along the sides of the waist. They assist in flexing and rotating the trunk.  Start by sitting and balancing on your right side with your legs on top of each other with your knees bent. Place your left hand on the side of your head. Crunch up with your side as high as you can, focusing on the movement to work the oblique’s as much as possible. After doing several repetitions on the left side, switch and repeat on the right side.
