Side Plank Raises
Either do this exercise with one foot in front of the other or to make it even more difficult, stack one foot on top of the other. You can also increase the difficulty by holding a weight on your hip. Get into the position shown. Raise your hips as high as you can and squeeze those obliques. Lower your hips back to just above the floor. Repeat and then swap sides.
Elevated Leg Crunch
Make your core workout more challenging by adding this elevated leg crunch. Make sure you use a lightweight ball (not a medicine ball). Assume start position as shown by placing a non-weighted ball between your feet. Bring hands behind head for support, and lift head, neck, and shoulders off floor by contracting your abs. Return to start position. Repeat 20 reps
Swiss Ball Oblique Crunche
You can get a fantastic oblique workout with just this exercise alone! It hits your obliques hard. Control the difficulty by using more or less weight. Find a wall, or something to jam your feet against. Put the center of your body onto the swiss ball.
Crunch your oblique muscles and lift your upper body to the sky. Squeeze your obliques at the top of the movement. Hold for about 1/2 a second. In a controlled movement, lower yourself. Repeat 20 reps.
