Oblique exercises for women
Want a more sculpted stomach in time for summer? Try these waist-cinching exercises...
As we wave goodbye to the colder weather, we also wave hello to bikini season *gulps*. Fortunately, there's no better time to whittle your waist for tummy-baring tops and body-boosting swimwear. A few oblique moves can easily add some definition to your side, so try these simple exercises for a little extra va va voom!
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.
All you need to complete this workout is a medicine ball, Swiss ball and a little bit of motivation. Use a medicine ball that challenges you to the fullest without compromising your form.
