Oblique Side Bends

Area Targeted: Side Abs

Set up:
Anchor:
Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.
Clip Bands: Attach both end of the band to one handle and grip the handle with one hand.
Handle Bands: Grip the nylon webbing below both handles with one hand.
Body Positioning: Stand about a 3 feet away from the door. Turn your body so that your side is facing the door. Keep your back straight, head straight and take a wide stance. Your arm straight and pointed towards the door anchor.

Movement: Bend your body to the side (from your waist), away from the door.

Points To Remember: While you bend to the side try to keep your legs frozen in place. This will help to isolate your oblique muscles.
