Side Bend With Dumbbells
Stand with your feet hip-width apart holding five- to 10-pound dumbbells at your sides.
Bend sideways to the right, squeezing your waist on the right side. Keep your neck as neutral as possible, looking forward not down.
Pull the left ribs down to return to standing upright. This focuses the work on the left obliques.
Repeat for a total of 12 bends to the right, then switch sides. Do three sets.
