Oblique Workout For Increased Range Of Motion


As you age, you might think that a tight mid-section is just about vanity, but I’d like to explaine that it’s about so much more.

Having core strength is crucial for most for daily movement and it protects you from back pain and injury. As you age, if you aren’t maintaining core strength, your mobility and ability to do basic, daily movements will become more challenging and even painful.

The oblique workout here is what you should consider ‘daily maintenance’ and something to keep coming back to.

So whether your a high performing athlete or an aging adult, this oblique workout is essential for you.

What Are Obliques?

Oblique muscles are crucial to complete the picture of a strong midsection. Simply put, they are your side abs and are responsible for your posture and range of motion.

Your obliques help you:

Bend from side to side

Rotate left and right

Stabilize and protect your spine

Your obliques work in harmony with all of your abdominal muscles to truly give you a tight tummy and a strong, stable back.
