Oblique Exercises

What are the obliques you ask?

Knowing how the obliques work

Your abdominals consist of four muscles. Most people are used to hearing them simply called abs. The abs include the Rectus abdominis, the Transversus abdominis, and a pair of muscles called the obliques.
The oblique muscles actually include the following pair of muscles on each of your sides:
  • The external obliques form the top muscle.
  • The internal obliques lie underneath the external obliques.
Together, they cross diagonally near the side of your midsection, from the bottom of your rib cage to your pubic area. The obliques are responsible for side bending and waist twisting moves.
