How to do Oblique Floor Crunches
1- Lie on your right side, with your right arm outstretched, palm down, and your left hand lightly supporting your head. Bend slightly from the waist so that your legs are at an angle of around 30 degrees to your torso.
2- Squeeze your oblique muscles to raise your head and shoulders, taking care not to force the movement.
3- Pause briefly at the top of the movement, then return to the start position slowly and under control. Complete the desired number of reps, then switch sides.
