Standing Oblique Side Crunches 2-Minute Workout

Only have a few minutes to spare? Tone your muscles in 2 minutes with these Standing Oblique Side Crunches.

Busy day? Simply hit play, get in this speedy workout and give “fitness” a checkmark in your Healthy Living Log.

Today's 2-minute workout is Standing Oblique Side Crunches (with or without a dumbbell).

This dynamic move helps tone your waistline and contributes to improved posture and overall core stability. Because it’s a unilateral move, we’ll spend 60 seconds on the left side and 60 seconds on the right side.

To maximize your results, you can use a heavy dumbbell. (Kalie’s using a 5-pound weight). If you don’t have a dumbbell or prefer not to use it, that’s okay too! 

Why We Love this Move

This exercise improves your functional strength, making it easier to perform activities that involve twisting, bending and lifting. It also improves your posture, enhances core stability and gives you a more toned waistline

New Mommas

As a new mom, it’s crucial to focus on safe and effective exercises that promote postpartum recovery and core strength. Oblique standing side bends can help with this, but it’s important to consult with your healthcare provider before starting any exercise program after childbirth. Your healthcare provider can guide you on when and how to safely incorporate oblique exercises like standing side bends into your postpartum fitness routine based on your individual recovery and any abdominal separation you may have.

Prioritizing your health and well-being as a new mom is essential, and with the right guidance you can work toward regaining core strength and overall fitness. 

After finishing your workout, don’t forget to thank your amazing body for all its hard work!
Cheers to a healthy lifestyle and living FULLforLife!
