A strong core is crucial for everything you do in life—from walking to picking up a grocery bag to rocking a yoga flow. In order to build a truly strong core, it’s important to target each muscle group, including the obliques—those muscles that run along the sides of your torso. If you’re ready to mix up your go-to core routine, showing these oft-neglected muscles a little extra love is a great choice.
To help you out, I’ve put together a bodyweight workout that targets your entire core with an emphasis on obliques. All you’ll need to do it is a mat and a small amount of space to complete these 10 oblique exercises. Try it at home, or grab a friend and work your core outdoors in a park (socially distanced, of course), and feel the burn!
