Target Your Obliques!

Let’s get rid of those love handles and muffin tops once and for all! Yes, there is no way to spot train, however, combined with clean eating and full-body workouts (cardio & strength) throughout the week, these two moves can help. Both of these moves require a little finesse and practice. Take your time and go slowly. You will feel the burn. Remember to keep in mind when doing these moves the part of your body you are working!

For the Break-Dancer: Start seated, right hand planted behind you left arm extending straight out in front of you shoulder height. Now, engage your core, and lift up using your tush, as you do this, twist your body so that your left arm ends up in alignment with your right hand. Lower slowly and switch sides. You should feel this in your triceps, glutes, and obliques.

For the Twisting Bird Dog: Start on all fours, hands directly under your shoulders. Engage your lower abs and lift your knees off the floor. Bring your right arm to a bent 45° angle and twist open on your right side. Your tush comes down about 2 inches off the ground, your feet go into a staggered stance. Feel that in your core? You should. Repeat on the other side.
