Uploaded by LivestrongWoman on 29.06.2012

Hi, I'm Valerie Waters, with the A-List Look. And today, I have for you a sleek, sexy, oblique
workout, and I think you're gonna love it–it's not those boring crunches on the floor. We're
actually gonna be moving and working your obliques at the same time, so your gonna burn
tons of calories and whittle that waist, right? So, I think you're gonna love it. And let's
get started! Okay, your first exercise is a Squat and Lift. Now, you can do this with
a medicine ball, but you don't need to. I'm actually gonna do it with just no weight.
This whole workout, you don't need any equipment. So, here we go–Squat and Lift. You're gonna
squat down. Reach to the outside. You're gonna rotate and, like, put it up on the shelf.
Down and up. That's 2. And we're gonna get 10 on each side. 4 and 5. Make sure you're
pivoting that hip. Good. 8, 9. Last one. And up. Really good. Okay, other side, here we
go. Reach down and twist. And lift it up. 2, 3. Good. 4 and 5. This is gonna get that
sexy waist you're lookin' for. Good. Don't forget to breathe. One more, and reach. Very
good. Okay, so we're gonna go into Charlie's Angels. And I love Charlie's Angels, because
not only is it working your obliques, it's burning tons of calories. So, here we go.
We're gonna do a reverse lunge–get your Charlie's Angels hands here. So, come down.
Give it a little twist. Come back. Other side. And we're going 10 on each side. And again,
you can make this harder by holding a medicine ball, but I think they're hard enough. So
again, we're burning calories, and we're working our obliques. I'm kinda workin' my legs too.
Good. And we're 8, 8, 9 and 9, 10 and 10. Oh my gosh, that is so good. Okay, we're not
resting–we're going right into Side Lunge With a Knee Up. So, you're gonna come here.
Bring it across. Lunge down. Bring it across. And that's 3. So, explode off that heel, really
sit back in your butt and then give it a nice twist to work your waist. And twist. Good.
Almost there, last one. Okay, other side. Here we go. Down and up. You're gonna hear
me start to breathe. That's what we're lookin' for. So, when we're working our obliques,
we're also getting a good, little cardio workout. There we go. 8. Sorry, that was 10. Okay,
so now I'm gonna come down–I call this a Plank Sweep. And you're gonna come down to
a plank position –or a push-up position– and I'm gonna start out with my right leg,
and I'm gonna take that over to my left elbow. And then, I'm gonna twist to the right, back
to the left. Twist to the right, back to the left, okay? So, you're gonna go each way 10
times. You should be feeling these. That's 8, 9, 9, 10 and 10. You might need to catch
your breath after that one. But we're not quitting–back to the other leg. Left leg,
right elbow. Left leg, left elbow. And back. That's 2. Now, don't let your hips drop. I
know when you get tired, you wanna drop down. Gotta hold it up. Come across. Good. That's
5. I'm feeling these. So good. Almost there. 10 and 10. Awesome. Okay, last one before
you get a break–we're just gonna do a Slow Bicycle. And I say 'just', like it's easy.
It's not. We'll start with your legs up, drop it down, and then come way out and over, and
then up. So, I'm not just going like that, right? Slow and controlled, reaching to that
outside. You're gonna get 10 on each leg. And really reach up and out. That's 6 and
6. That's 7. Keep reaching. That's so good. Almost there. And then one more, each way.
And now you get a little break. And just take a minute to drop those legs all the way down.
Put your hands over your head. Okay, at this point, take a little break, about 30 seconds,
and then do this circuit one more time. And that's all you need, because it's a challenging
workout. And when you're done, you're gonna feel like you did that sleek, sexy, oblique
workout. You're gonna love it. I'm Valerie Waters, and you are just one workout away
from a good mood.
