Here's another one that's commonly abused in the gym. Focus on moving your shoulder toward your opposite knee. Avoid the temptation to move your elbow in or your knee back.

Here is how you properly perform an oblique crunch:

1. Lie on a mat with your left leg bent and your foot flat on the floor.

2. Place your right ankle so that it rests on top of your left knee.

3. Position your left hand behind your neck and keep your right arm outstretched.

4. Slowly curl up and twist toward your right knee.

5. Hold that position for a second and then slowly return to the starting position.

6. Switch legs and arms and repeat on the other side.
