These oblique moves will have you wiggling into one tonight

Even if you're not a fan, it's hard to dispute the fact that the Kardashian clan has killer style. They know how to rock body-con dresses, skinny jeans, and bodysuits with the best of them. So when Khloé Kardashian (the Kardashian's resident fitness guru, and our May cover girl) offers up some tips on how she pulls off those skintight bodysuits, we're going to listen in.

"Because of the tight fit, I like to work out my abs and hips before I wear one," she wrote in her latest website post. (Although, her body positive attitude and killer confidence definitely help her pull them off too.)

Khloé's go-to exercises are all about the obliques: cross-body mountain climbers (2 sets of 10 reps, alternating sides), side planks with a hip dip (3 sets of 10 reps, alternating sides), and standing trunk rotations with outstretched arms (2 sets of 20 reps, alternating sides).

Below, see how to do all three of KK's moves for looking bangin' in a bodysuit. Add these other oblique exercises to make it a full workout and really carve your curves.

Cross-Body Mountain Climbers

Start in a high plank position. Keeping core tight, rive right knee towards left elbow. Return to starting position and repeat on opposite side.

Side Plank with Hip Dips

Start by lying on one side, propped up on one elbow, keeping body in a straight line, feet stacked on top of one another, hips lifted. Lower slowly down until hip barely touches the ground, then lift back up. Repeat on opposite side.

Standing Trunk Rotation

The standing twist Khloé does it's pretty simple: stand with feet wider that hip width apart, keep core tight, and twist from side to side.

To make it harder (as pictured), add a step and reach: Stand with feet together, arms extended out to sides at shoulder height, palms facing down, with core tight. Keeping pelvis still and hips facing forward, exhale and rotate upper body to the left, pulling ribcage in tighter toward spine. Step right foot out to the side wider than hips, reaching left hand to the right foot, rounding spine and scooping abs in to bring chest toward thighs, twisting torso to the right. Return to starting position. Repeat on opposite side.
