If you’re looking to build a rock-solid pair of obliques or get that sexy, deep, v-cut, then you need to add this exercise into your ab routine…today. Often people focus primarily on the rectus abdominis–aka the six pack muscles–but completely forget about the obliques. I’m very conscious of the oblique area and we usually hit them during my private training sessions and at my bootcamp classes as well.
I recommend doing the V-trunk twist with a 3-10lb small to medium weight or small medicine ball. Try 3 x10-15 reps per side, 3xs a week to start. NOTE: Always do 15-30mins of cardio to warm your body up before doing this exercise every time. This exercise is best done in the middle or near the end of your workout. This will help you to look great from ANY camera angle and position : ) Oblique training helps to highlight a fine sculptured physique from every angle possible.
