Last week I took a sculpt class and we did these silly (or so I thought) exercises where we were standing and bending side to side. The instructor warned us that we’d feel it the next day, but it didn’t really seem hard at the time. And oh boy did I feel it the next day. It was incredible! So this week, I introduce you to the “harder than it looks” Standing Side Crunch . You’ll feel this one in your obliques and glutes.
Start standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent pulling your navel in to your spine. Next, lift your right leg with your knee bent at 90 degrees and turned out to the side. Put your hands behind your head and bend your right elbow toward your right knee. Do 15 reps on each leg. Aim for 3 sets
