    Best obliques exercise

    I'm just curious as to what exercises others have used to build their obliques. And which ones do you feel are most effective?

    Excellent. I just recently started doing planks. I'll have to add some side planks too. Thanks.

    If you do any sledgehammer stuff or have a weight on a stick, you can also do some side to side swings.

    When I was doing Insanity, which I no longer do, Shaun T had a move where you are in plank position where you try to bring your knee up to your ear and then bring the other knee up. Get a real good burn in the obliques from these.

    Not sure how accurate the claim is, but I read in Men's Health that pushups actually activate your obliques more than side planks. I also like spiderman pushups, where as you lower your body you bring one leg up, parallel to the ground, and try to touch your knee to your elbow.

    The spiderman pushup was kinda what I was referring to except you stay in plank with your forearms on the floor.

    All exercises recomended so far will add a nice variety to your work outs.
    Another adition could be compound exercises like squats,split squats,clean and press,
    hang cleans,hang dumb bell snatches,dead lifts but if you want to feel them work
    hard try single arm dumb bell chest press.You have to balance your body to do
    the exercise giving you a great chest and oblique work out ross training will give you
    a demo
