Feet-elevated oblique crunch

The feet-elevated oblique crunch is a variation on the crunch exercise that targets the obliques as well as the rectus abdominis or "six-pack" muscles. Resting the feet on a bench takes some of the hip flexor activation out of the movement, focusing the stress more on the abs.

Benefits

  1. Elevating your feet forces your abs and obliques to handle a greater percentage of the load
  2. Can be performed using a couch or any other elevated surface
  3. Great for isolating the obliques
