    Upper oblique exercises?






    Hi there!

    Have been a reader of the forum for a while now, and require some help with ab exercises.......

    How on EARTH do I target these muscles (see pic - not me by the way!!)?



    They're sort of upper-obliques, breaking off from the lat.

    I've got the lats (4x6 gironda sternum chins, on a good day), and I've got the central abs, including lower obliques.

    But NOTHING i do seems to bring out the area around the base of the ribs.

    Don't tell me they're intercostal? and i've gotta do breathing work to hit them?

    btw - i've just discovered the absolute joy that is 400mg ibuprofen + 200mg caffeine pre-workout...painless AND motivated!

    Keep it up guys!

    I thought that was called the Serratus or Serrate?

    How dare you use a photo of me
    What this means is that when we drop a ball and it falls to the ground, it wasn't the ball that moved (down to the ground), but the ground that moved (up to the ball)
