Bench oblique crunch

The bench oblique crunch is an exercise that targets the obliques, the muscles running alongside the rectus abdominis. The range of motion is fairly small, but it still does a great job of working these hard-to-isolate muscles. Like most crunch variations, it is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more.


  1. Works the obliques
  2. Easy to learn and master
  3. The balance challenge of staying on the bench may make the core muscles work harder
