Hi, I'm Sara Holliday from Fitbysara.com, and I'm going to show you an elbow to knee oblique crunch. In the oblique crunch, you're going to work these muscles right here so the abdominals come through right here and the obliques wrap around right through here. So working through the waist and I want to point out that in order to have a definition come through it really comes through eating healthy as well. So once you start eating healthier you're going to start seeing the definition come through in your body. This is going to tone the muscle, make it nice and strong and tight. So what you're going to do you're going to lay all the way down, bring your hands behind your head with your knees bent, your low back is flat and you're going to keep one elbow on the ground. You're going to bring the opposite elbow towards the knee and exhale out the mouth, inhale and exhale as you bring in the knee towards the elbow. Now you might not have the flexibility to bring your knee all the way to your elbow at this point but you'll work up to it. So what you can do is you can change this up, you can do a count of eight and then do a count of eight on the other side and then you can do a count of four on this side and then four on the other side, then two, and then two on the other side and then alternate it up. So you can do that alternating for eight counts and then start over again for a whole nother set of eight, then four, then two and then alternate again and you will feel the burn into your waist. I'm Sara Holliday from Fitbysara.com and I just showed you an elbow to knee oblique crunch.
