I am trying to add some size to my obliques, my abs are all out of proportion to them. I’m struggling a bit with exercise selection.
side bends don’t seem to do anything. I’ve been doing an exercise where I grab a cable at about shoulder height then twist my hips as far as I can to the side, then slowly return to the start position. It’s worked a bit but my progress on it is starting to plateau.
Also it seems to be hitting my abs more than my obliques (at least it’s my abs where I ‘feel’ it working) which is what I want to avoid.
I already squat and deadlift and I know some people think that’s enough for your midsection but I don’t really agree with that. If you can get a decent midsection just from those then I’m jealous of you.
So if anyone can advice of good exercises to target the obliques I would appreciat it.
