Abdominal Exercises for Kickboxing Fitness : Kickboxing Fitness: Side Mini Ab-Crunch


Hello, I’m sifu Mallon with the Clearwater
Kung Fu Center. This is my assistant Melissa and this is kick boxing. The next abdominal
exercise we’re going to working, for our kick boxing, is going to be what’s called side
mini crunch. The side mini crunch is going to go ahead and work more of your oblique
area, on your abdominals. Melissa let’s roll to your left side. Body placement for this
is important. You want to make sure that you’re placing your body is a position to where you
feel comfortable. So, you want to extend your left arm out and you can either keep it level
to your shoulder or reach out, either way it fine. We don’t want to bring it too far,
vertically over your head but more on this angle. Now the body, you want to roll to your
side, this way. At this point, you’re going to feel your hip bone pushing on the floor.
We don’t want to feel that, it’s not going to be very comfortable. So, Melissa’s going
to roll back more toward her rear, she’s going to bring both feet a little bit forward. So,
if Melissa’s hip is here, her feet are going to be on an angle forward, in front of the
hips. This arm is going to straighten out. Now she’s going to bring her feet up and she’s
going to reach her hand this way. This is doing our side mini crunch and back down and
again.
Again, you’ll see that the body is not going up but crunching in and downward. You want
to feel this right through this side of your obliques. This is called side mini crunch,
kick boxing.
