The Oblique Abdominal muscles consist of the internal and external Oblique’s. Due to it being the biggest and most visible – the external Oblique tends to be the muscle that the nations readers of Mens Health chanel their efforts into in order to actually enable you to get that desirable V shape.
Being one of the most attractive to work on, they are also one of the most problematic muscles to achieve. This is down to the fact that they only actually appear when (Male) Bodyfat levels get down to 15% or under.
All because of a lack of understanding around optimum bodyfat and muscle growth techniques, most of the Fitness going public never even manage to see their Oblique’s!
Today im going to detail to you the best Oblique Abdominal Exercises to include in your workouts for you to be able to properly carve out those super freaky Obliques.
The Obliques are not like many of the larger muscle groups such as Chest and Back, so the reasoning behind an effective Oblique Abdominal workout will put the emphasis on volume as opposed to grabbing the heaviest weight you can lift. What were going for is lean muscle mass.
You Are What You Eat –
Like I said earlier Oblique Abdominal Exercises are very much only half of the equation. To allow you to get your Bodyfat to a low enough level for them to are able to be seen you need to be serious about eating the right food.
The Best Three Oblique Abdominal Exercises
For this one your going to be using the Cable Machine: Position yourself with your back erect with a slight bend in your Legs, next, grip the small attachment (the same one you use for Cable crossovers) and whilst keeping your Arms straight, turn to the side whilst keeping your Legs in position untill you notice a pull in your Oblique.The Cable should be moved so that it is just below the bottom of your Chest.
Continue this movement and then repeat again on the other side of the machine.
Dumbbell Side Dip:
Stand absolutely erect have your head positioned forward then pick up a Dumbbell making sure that your Arm is hanging loosely next to the side of your body with your Palm facing your Leg. Then, whilst keeping your Arm to the side of your body, bend to the side, to the point where you begin to feel a tightening on your Oblique. Repeat the movement and then change hands and work through the same volume of reps of reps the other side to balance out the workout.
Basically the same as a conventional sit-up, the real difference here is that you will be turning your body through the positive (raising) part of the movement ensuring that your right elbow touches your Left knee and the opposite for the other side. This has got to be one of the ultimate exercises to add to your training schedule for you to be able to train up your Oblique’s to the point where people stare every time you take your top off.
