Who's ready to shred those abs!? We are killing those abdominals today! Aaron Marino of alpha m. is taking you through one of his favorite ab workouts that also targets the obliques.
You are probably seen a ton of guys really targeting the obliques with weights. The problem is the thickening of your waist. These exercises won't build and thicken-- just strengthen and tone.
Use the hanging leg raise machine or use straps to hang on a pull-up bar (which is a heck of a lot tougher than the machine). The secret is not focusing on the abs but keeping your body up and straight. If you sink, the exercise is going to end poorly. Perform 4 sets:
- 10 leg lifts with a pause
- 10 twist to center - one side
- 10 twist to center - other side
- 10 leg lifts
