Happy October! This week, keep your eyes peeled for the (1) Q4 MineFit Focus
, the official (2) Strength Series with Audio Recordings
for each exercise, and (3) other events to come between now and end of year. For today, your Monday Move is on the Oblique!
An important muscle for posture, breathing, and trimming the waistline, do this move ANYWHERE and ANYTIME to strengthen your obliques and make a huge impact on your body in two minutes.
The Side Bend For Oblique and Waistline Strength
Bend at the waist to one side until a deep slight stretch is felt and a pull on the waist. Then, lower to the opposite side, same distance, and repeat. If you are using a weight, try to lower it to your kneecap, and focus on the other side of your waistline as you go down. Do 10 on each side, either alternating or keeping on one side. Add a neck stretch for an extra benefit and reduced rate of pain and injury in the upper back.
