How To Perform Exercise

The decline oblique crunch is a version of the decline crunch exercise that isolates the oblique muscles of the abdominals.

Steps :

1.) Start off lying on a decline bench face up, placing your feet securely under the pads, and positioning your hands either across your chest or on either side of your head.

2.) Raise your shoulders and chest up, keeping your back straight and bringing your left elbow to your right knee, while slowly crunching your abs.

3.) Pause for a moment and then return to the starting position.

4.) Lay fully back and repeat with your right elbow to your left knee.

5.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
