  • Woodchopper

  • Abdominal exercises are very important as a part of your workout.
  • This exercise will help you deal with obliques. People who are aware of this might question me that obliques are nowhere the part of abs. I agree, they are not the part of abs, but it is very essential to have a good physique.
  • You can attach the cable both below and above, and you must pull in a way you would chop wood by.
  • Go slow and feel the contraction in the obliques.

  • Russian Twist

  • This is one of the most effective fat burning exercises.
  • Everyone focuses on the abs and they forget about their obliques, which isn’t a right way to get and maintain those abs later.

  • Leg raises- one of the ideal workout exercises for abs

  • This exercise is basically working on your lower abs, which is perhaps the hardest way to develop abs.
  • It not only deals with the lower abs, but it also focuses on the grip.
  • This exercise varies as per the difficulty level. So, begin with the easiest and gradually go ahead.
  • Bend your legs and raise them while grabbing onto a pull-up bar or even a barbell fixed to the squat rack.
  • To increase the difficulty level, don’t bend your knees which will help in hitting your obliques.
