How to Do a Side Crunch

Learn how to do a side crunch from certified personal trainer James Rizzo in this home ab workout video from Howcast.


Okay, now I'm gonna demonstrate how to do a side crunch. It's similar to a regular crunch, but the difference is you're turning to either direction. So you are gonna alternate your sides. Same position with your legs, 90 degree angles, feet flat on the floor. Okay, I have my hands behind my head. And what I'm doing, I'm just gonna turn and hit the obelisks, which is the side of dominoes. Okay, turn the opposite side. Okay. Breathe as you come up. Keep the chin neutral, so you're not looking down and straining your neck. So you're really just twisting that elbow into the side, so you stimulate the side obelisks. Okay, keep it high repetitions, so you really feel that obelisk area working. So you're working upper and side here. And that is the proper way to do a side crunch.
