Area Targeted: Side Abs

If you are looking to add Side Bends to your workout routine, then try out The Oblique Side Bend With Tube Bands. Bands are superior for this exercise as they provide super smooth resistance from the perfect angle.

Follow the instructions below to perform this exercise:


Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.

Bands: Attach both end of the band to one handle and grip the handle with one hand.

Body Positioning: Stand about a 3 feet away from the door. Turn your body so that your side is facing the door. Keep your back straight, head straight and take a wide stance. Your arm straight and pointed towards the door anchor.


1. While you bend to the side try to keep your legs frozen in place. This will help to isolate your oblique muscles.


1. Keep your head straight as you raise your upper body off the floor. If you find that your are moving your head up and down during the exercise, tuck your chin into your chest.
