Working hard on building strong abdominals?

Working hard on building a six pack? Don't neglect the very important oblique muscles that run up and down our sides and serve as stabilisers for the body. Oblique muscles are engaged in almost every compound lifting movement, and almost every physical activity.

These muscles help bend and rotate your torso and perhaps most important helps to stabilise and protect your spine. If you play any kind of sport, obliques are a critical part of your overall ability to perform and in contact sports, they also protect your torso, and prevent damage to vital organs. So don't forget this important region when working out. Here is a HIIT workout that focuses on the obliques and will leave you feeling strong and solid and well on the way to building that defined abdominal area!
