Oblique Workout Exercises
Oblique MuscleObliques are the trouble spot for most, if not everyone. They can be a pain to try and reduce the overall size.
The function of the oblique muscle is for spine flexion, rotation, and lateral flexion.
The origin of the oblique is on the Ilium and the 5th-12th Ribs.
The oblique muscle inserts onto the rectus abdominis fascia and the Ilium.

What exercises can I do to reduce fat on my Oblique muscle?
Spot reducing is the idea that you can lose fat from a specific area of your body by performing exercises targetting that area. You cannot spot reduce (with the exception of liposuction), but you can: Follow six rules to nutrition, incorporate HIIT and complete a ciruit training program 4-5 days a week to reduce your overall body fat and eventually reduce the fat in your Oblique. In other words, specifically exercising your Oblique will not directly decrease the overall fat around the muscle. Also if you are suffering from muscle cramps, please read about what causes muscle cramps.
