Target area: Core
The contraction in this exercise targets the hard to reach obliques and helps you get that sought after v-cut. Simply lie on your side with your body in a straight line. Fold your arms across your chest. Keeping your legs together, lift them off the floor as you raise your top elbow toward your hip. The range of motion is short, but you should feel an intense contraction in your obliques. That’s one rep. Think you can handle it?
