You can increase the difficulty of this exercise by adding weights around your ankles.

Step 2

Place your lower hand on your upper rib cage.

Step 3

Place your upper hand behind your head. Your elbow should be bent and pointing up. This is your starting position.

Step 5

Once you’re at the top movement, squeeze your obliques for a moment and hold it briefly.

After that, release and slowly lower your torso and leg at the same time until you’re back to your starting position.
