    lying twist

    anyone think these are worth a damn? I was thinking of maybe doing them. The gym I go to doesn't have one of those oblique machines.

    lying twists like russian twists (torso twists) or like lying leg twists? Either way, there is nothing wrong with doing some oblique work.

    any other excercise you have in mind that would be more beneficial for the obliquies?

    I usually do bicycles or russian twists if I am wanting to work my abs. other than that I just do compound exercises like squats and deadlifts which hit the core pretty hard on their own.
