How to Do an Oblique V-Crunch

This Challenging, No-Equipment Move Is Exactly What You Need to Tighten Your Waistline

The oblique V-crunch, sometimes called a "mermaid crunch," strengthens and tones your waistline by targeting the obliques — the abdominal muscles on either side of your rectus abdominis (that six-pack zone in the middle!). Here's how it's done:

  • Lie on your right side with your left hand behind your head and your right hand on the floor.
  • Press down into your right hand as you raise your straight legs off the floor, bringing your torso toward your legs.
  • Lower yourself back to the floor with control. This completes one rep. Be sure to do even reps on each side.
