Everyone slimming down, bulking up, working out and toning up. Here are some amazing core workouts focusing on the obliques,which are equally important to giving you a slimmer sexier waist.
Below are the greatest moves to target the obliques and a workout routine to help you shape the body you deserve! Pictures and video!
I have researched for years now to find out what are the best methods for weight loss, whether they be food tips and workout styles and I have narrowed down the most effective moves to boost metabolism and banish fat, for good.If you’re interested have a look at the 5 day fit programme!
The exercises I have listed below use large muscle groups in the body, this enables you to burn fat quickly by raising the heart rate/metabolic rate and engaging multiple muscle groups at one time.
You’ll notice most of the moves are cardio strength, which means the fat is being burned quickly (with cardio) and your metabolic rate stays high with the strength.
