Work those abs with oblique v-ups that will tighten up your mid-section. Learn about abdominal exercises in this free fitness video.
I am Kyle Brayer and your next in-home abdominal workout will be the oblique v-ups. So Kerri is going to lay down on her side on our ab mat. She is going to start with her legs out at about twenty-degrees here. She is going to lay down on her left shoulder and throw her left arm out at about a forty-five degree angle from her body and her right hand goes behind her head. This is her starting position. She is going to try and keep her knees and legs straight and flex her toes toward her heels. The key here is trying to bring your knee toward your elbow, it is probably not going to happen as a beginner, but once you get more advanced you will be able to do it. So she is going to come up and she is going to make a big V with her body, and come back down. And up and back down. So it is a very small movement, she is only coming up about two inches from either side both with her legs and her upper body, and it is really pinching on her obliques which is this side region along the abdominal region. So one more time up and back down. And relax. And she is making sure that when she comes up off the mat she is exhaling and then she is inhaling on her way down. And that is the oblique v-up.
