Core and Oblique Workout Transcript:
Welcome to your five minute core and oblique workout. Are you ready? We're gonna stretch side to side. This is really targeting those oblique muscles. They shape and cinch in your waistline. That's right. Reaching side to side notice my entire lower body is still very, very still, but the upper body, the sides of the waistline are engaged and doing the job to reach. That's it. Really feel the reach all through the carriage here. Great for the torso. Great to whittle your waistline. That's it. Just keep reaching a little further each time you're gonna feel it all on the sides of your waistline. That's it. They shape that beautiful waist to cinch in great muscles. Dancers do this move all the time to really target the core and the obliques. Got a couple more... Last one. Great. And now we're going do wood choppers.
