Hi, I'm Billy Beck III from Billy Beck III Personal Training Center here in Weston South Florida. In this video, I'm going to teach you how to do standing oblique crunches. Now most people will grab two weights and then they'll do this. Now step into my common sense corner. If you have a 20 pound dumbbell on one side, a 20 pound dumbbell on the other side, I happened to grab two separate weights but imagine that they're both the same weight, if you have 20 pounds pulling on one side, 20 on another, that's going to negate it. So what you've got to do is you've got to get rid of one of them. You need one dumbbell and then what you're going to do is you're going to tighten the opposite side. If the weight is in the right hand, you're going to tighten the left hand side. Now all you're going to do is take the space from the bottom rib, to the hip bone and then keep it tight. Good posture, squeeze and you should feel like it's about to cramp. Now this is going to work the oblique muscles, internal, external oblique as well as a muscle called quadrasol borum in the lower back a little bit here. Now a lot of people want to know how to just exercise because they want to lose their love handles. Doing this exercise will not make you lose your love handles. Doing this exercise will strengthen these muscles that we're trying to train here. But to burn fat, you have to have the right nutrition, train all the muscles in your body and then get enough rest and recovery and that's how you change your body. I'm Billy Beck III, and this has been how you can do standing oblique crunches.
