Hi my name is Tanya Batts and I'm a personal trainer. I just want to show you a few exercises you can do at home that really targets the obliques. The materials you will need for this segment, just a nice thick mat. You might not even need a mat. Just you and some space. Let's go all the way down. Nice soft mat, knees to chest, fingertips to head lift off. Opposite elbow, opposite knee. That's really targeting the center and the sides, inhale, exhale, that's a great way to start. Alright tip number two, knees directly above hips. Arms are going to be nice and wide, this one is going to be tough. You are going to lower the knees down and keeping both shoulder blades on the floor as you do this, roll the other down. So it's a little easier with bent knee. If you want it a little more challenging, pow, legs long, lower and lift it and just lower down. So you do not want the feet to touch the floor. We'll call this the Tick Tock, it's a good one. Number three, Side Plank, elbow directly below shoulder. If you have a shoulder injury you just really want to be careful. The knee is down. You're a long line. I'm just going to lift my hip off the floor. So it's a little easier with the knee down but as you get stronger you're going to be able to stack the feet, maybe put one foot behind the other so you have got the whole toe heel, fingertip on the head, I'm going to add on. I'm touching my elbow to my fist. You don't have to add the twist but as you get stronger you really want to keep moving, burning calories, that is right there, oblique. So those are just three good exercises you can do that will just target those obliques and you can do them at home.
