The hip oblique exercise is a core strengthening exercise that targets the oblique muscles located on the sides of the abdomen.

Proper form:

  1. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  2. Place your hands behind your head or on your chest.
  3. Lift your feet off the ground and bend your knees at a 90-degree angle.
  4. Engage your core and lift your head and shoulders off the ground.
  5. Twist your torso to the right, bringing your left elbow towards your right knee.
  6. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side.
  7. Continue alternating between sides for the desired number of repetitions.

How to reduce difficulty: If you find the exercise difficult, you can keep your feet on the ground and focus on the twisting motion of your upper body.

How to increase difficulty: To increase the intensity of the exercise, you can hold a weight or medicine ball in your hands while performing the exercise.
