When working out, many focus on crunches and mountain climbers. These exercises are great for your core, but you also need to include something to work on you obliques. These muscles are important for maintaining posture, balance, and lower back well-being. Trainer Alicia Marie recommends doing oblique crunches, bird dog crunches, or inchworm exercises. She suggests finding the one that works best for you and incorporating it into your normal routine.
- exercises like planks and mountain climbers are great for targeting your core, you also want to incorporate some oblique-focused work in your regular routine.
- Obliques exercises will work with the entire abdominal column, which means engaging your midsection from top to bottom.
- obliques are the muscles that run along the sides of your waist and they’re important for posture, balance, and supporting your low back.
