Activate Your Obliques With One Core Move

How To Activate The Obliques

This move—called Candlestick Dippers—is sure to activate those oblique muscles. The objective is to bend directly at the side, trying not to lean forward as you bend. As you return to the starting position, squeeze your obliques (sides).

Complete 3 sets of 12-15 reps on each side.
