use barbells lightly weighted. place behind your head resting on shoulders. bend to the right then up then to the left then up, repeat for approximately 10 repitions. use light weights to start until you see how much you can handle. I promise you this will get rid of your love handles as it tends to strengthen the side muscles better than any exercise i have ever seen.

Lie on your back and cross the left foot over the right knee. Put your right hand behind your head, extend left arm straight out for support, lift your shoulder blades off the floor and twist to the left, bringing the right shoulder towards the left knee. Lower back down and repeat for 10 reps before switching sides (right foot over left knee, left hand behind your head, right arm extended straight out for support, raise shoulder blades, twist to the right bringing the left shoulder toward the right knee). Do 10 reps, then 9, then 8, etc. down to 5 on both sides, slowly. Try to focus on using your side muscles.

The rectus abdominus muscles are media to the obliques. They lie closer to the midline than the obliques, which are lateral.

User Avatar

The oblique muscles are located on both sides of the abdomen running diagonally along the rectus abdominis, which is the center abdominal muscle. There are two sets of obliques, the external and the internal. The external obliques are more superficial while the internal obliques are a deeper muscle.

The oblique muscles help a person twist and bend at the torso. Strong obliques are good for supporting the lower back. Another name for obliques is side abdominals.

The obliques are the main muscles used for twisting movements. They twist works both sides of the obliques. It also works the glutes and calves too.

Pole dancing is an amazing form of exercise. Having done pole dancing myself I can tell you that it works many muscles of the body, including the core muscles, the obliques, the arms and the legs. To climb, spin etc on a pole involves strength and is a good cardio work out too. Enjoy :)

pectorals, abdominals, obliques are the major ones

This can be tricky, if we're talking about all muscle and you have built your obliques through exercise whether directly as with side bends or indirectly through a particular sport the only way to reduce them is probably to reduce the stimulation they receive - no side bends etc. They are not a muscle that usually needs to be trained specifically anyway. If you're talking about "love handles" and it's not rock hard muscle then try both cutting down your food intake and doing some good fat burning exercise at a moderate intensity for medium or long duration to reduce bodyfat. You can't target the fat in one area of your body by any particular exercise as you may know.

Your abdominal muscles and obliques.

Myosclerosis is abnormal hardening of muscle. There are six different abdominal muscles of the anterior abdominal wall. The rectus abdominis, external obliques, internal obliques and the transverse abdominus muscle.

User Avatar

The obliques function to pull the chest downwards and compress the abdominal wall. It also has some actions in both flexion and rotation of the vertebral column. The obliques contracting on one side can create lateral flexion on that side.
