Engage your obliques with standing bicycle crunches. Place your hands behind your head, lift your right knee, and touch it to your left elbow. Alternate sides in a smooth, controlled motion.
Grab a dumbbell or a medicine ball and stand with feet hip-width apart. Lift the weight diagonally across your body, twisting from your waist. Control the movement as you mimic the action of chopping wood.
Work on your balance while targeting the obliques. Stand tall and slowly lift your left leg to the side. Feel the activation in your core. Hold briefly, then lower the leg. Alternate sides and repeat.
Hold a weight with both hands at chest level. Lift one foot slightly off the ground. Rotate your torso to one side and then the other, tapping the weight against the ground. This dynamic move engages your entire core and challenges your stability.
Embrace the standing plank to engage your core and improve posture. Interlace your fingers and raise your arms overhead. Lean to one side, engaging the oblique. Return to center and repeat on the other side. Your core stability is taking shape!
