Step 1

Holding a dumbbell in your left hand, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. Place your right hand behind your ear. Gently draw your ribs to your hips to engage your core. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Stretching your right obliques, lower the dumbbell down your left leg and draw your ribs towards your left hip.

Step 3

Exhale. Contract your right obliques to straighten your torso to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified number of repetitions on the same side, before completing the remaining repetitions on the other side.
