One exercise to get a flat stomach and shape your waist

Flat stomach and shape your waist is one of the goals we set ourselves every year, but training the body and strengthening the muscles is not just an aesthetic question. To achieve these goals, include oblique crunches in your exercise routine .

slim waist has been a stereotype of female beauty for several decades. However, beyond the aesthetic aspect, a waistline with a circumference greater than 80 centimeters is associated with a greater risk of developing chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and triglycerides, hypertension and other coronary artery diseases.

Reducing the size of your waistline means eliminating visceral fat , and this can only be done through a radical change in your eating habits and the choice of the right targeted exercises, to be carried out regularly.

Oblique V-up

Hiit workout

Oblique V-up are a core exercise that work all of the abdominal muscles, even the side abdominals. Strengthening the abdominals is crucial for maintaining a stable lower back, especially with lifting tasks. The side abs are called obliques and they create a toned side waistline.

  1. Lie on your right side with your legs straight, feet stacked, and your right arm extended in front of your chest on the ground, palm down.
  2. Place your left fingertips behind your left ear. This is the starting position.
  3. Keeping your core braced (imagine someone is about to punch you in the gut) and legs straight, and making sure not to push with your grounded hand
  4. Raise your torso and legs off the ground simultaneously and bring them toward one another. Your body should form an angled V shape.
  5. Slowly reverse the move to return to the starting position. Perform equal reps on both sides.
  6. Perform 12 reps and switch sides. Start again until you complete 3 sets.

Some benefits of oblique V-up include:

  • Strengthening and toning the oblique muscles, helping to create a more defined waistline.
  • Improving core stability and balance.
  • Helping to prevent lower back pain by strengthening the muscles that support the spine.
  • Enhancing overall athletic performance by improving rotational strength.
