6. Triangle With Dumbbell:
- Stand with your feet wide apart. Point your left foot leftward and your right foot forward.
- Hold a dumbbell in your right hand. You should use your heavy weight dumbbell and straighten that arm overhead, slightly sideways.
- Now bend to your left side and try to reach the floor on the left with your left hand.
- Go as low as you can without compromising the position and with your back straight.
- Do 15 reps on each side.
7. 360-Degree Oblique:
- Stand with your legs open, a bit wider than shoulder width apart, with your toes pointing outwards. See that your tailbone is tucked in.
- Take a dumb bell of 1 kg and hold it in between both your palms (holding a weight is important so that you don’t feel the stretch in your lower back.
- In case the dumbbell seems heavy, just clasp both your hands together and go slow on bending sideways).
- Now, raise both your arms above your head with the weight in hand and stretch them well.
- Slowly, then bend sideways from your hips towards your toes, with both your arms and body stretched to the maximum extent, with your shoulders and hips square forward.
- Push yourself to the maximum extent, and when you cant reach your toes any more, rotate your body towards the floor.
- Twist your body back to face front, breathe out pulling back up to the center.
- Make sure you don’t lock your knees. Do slow and controlled reps in each direction, with alternate sides.
8. Oblique Crunch with Long Legs:
- Start lying on side in one long line, shoulder stacked over elbow and on forearm.
- Swing your legs forward and lean back on glutes slightly (like your sitting on the back pocket of your blue jeans) and lift legs off the mat on the diagonal, extend top arm long.
- Contract your core as you reach your toes up to your hand. Then lower legs and lift arm to return to start.
- Remember to repeat on the other side.
