Obliques Training Tips📚
🔑The obliques are targeted through trunk rotation & stability.
📊VOLUME: Total amount of work done (sets per week).
🔹The obliques best respond to 4-10 sets
🔹The obliques are indirectly targeted through a lot of compound lifts so if they aren't a priority, very little to no oblique training is needed.
🗓FREQUENCY: 3-5 times per week
🔹Training the obliques frequently is fine as they tend to recover quickly.
🔹The obliques respond best to training 8-20 reps. Hammering them with super low reps is sub-optimal and can even risk injuring the spine.
