Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert, creator of the Perfect 10 Workout, and I'm going to show you resistance band exercises for the obliques, the obliques are the side muscles. We're going to get the band in both hands, we're going to bring it on, down. Put one foot in and then, the other, about hip-width apart. Knees are soft, which means a little bit bent. And for me, this is just a little too easy. So, what I want to do is get the resistance tighter on the bands. So, I'm going to grip down a little bit further, ah, that's much better. And bend the knees, tuck the tailbone under, neck is long and squeeze your waist, exhaling. And then, lift up and then, squeeze and feel it in the side. Squeezing on the side, exhale, go directly to the side. Do about 10 on one side and then, 10 on the other. Trying to get them warmed up, so you can actually feel that muscle. You've got to squeeze it as hard as you can and exhale into it. Then, go form one side squeezing, inhale in the middle, exhale, other side, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale. Squeezing your obliques as you exhale, feel that burn on the sides. And those are great exercises that you can do for the obliques, with the bands.
