I've tried for a couple of months now and I just can't seem to build on my obliques.. I have minimal trouble getting and keeping my 6 pack, but I just can't get those darn obliques. It looks really awkward having a decent set of abs and then nothing to wrap them.
At the moment I work on these in the same sessions as my abs.. I figured this was ok as they're all part of my core. Maybe this is the problem?
At the moment I generally run my core workout like so:
- Standard crunches - 3x20.
- Floor oblique crunches - 5x20 each side.
- Reverse crunches - 2x60.
- Oblique dumbbell side lifts - 3x20 (20kg).
- Bicycle crunches - 3x10.
What can I do specifically to place more emphasis on my obliques and build them up? Should I break up my ab workout and my oblique workout?
