Super Awesome Waist-Shredder Exercises To Sculpt Sexy Obliques

Super Sexy Shredded Obliques ABS

It doesn’t matter the weather outside, there’s always a good time to prep your body into a head turning machine for this bikini season.

A few oblique moves can easily add some definition to your side, so try these simple exercises for a little extra.

These five basic yet effective exercises target the obliques (the side abdominal muscles). Shaping up this area does wonders in complimenting a toned tum and waist, so don’t think that you’ve got the mid-section covered if all you’re doing are planks and crunches.

  • 3-8kg medicine ball
  • Swiss ball
