Here’s a powerful conditioning exercise for your obliques–Catcher Crunches! Strength in your side body is essential for climbs, drops, and a variety of aerial skills. This can also be adapted for sling, trapeze, lyra, and other apparatuses.
- Start in catcher’s with two extra wraps. Keep your wrapped leg engaged and extended the whole time.
- Put your hands behind your head and alternate tagging each elbow to your hooked knee. Don’t sweat it if you don’t reach all the way.
- Try to release back down from each rep with control
- Try 2-3 sets of 4-8 per side. I like to do all sets on one side before switching to save time and energy.
