10 most effective oblique exercises to build and tone your abs
Get better abs with these amazing exercises
Man doing ab exercise with kettlebell.

Nearly everyone wants a six-pack, and many people stick to only working the rectus abdominis — the abdominal muscle that runs up the center of your torso. While we want this muscle to be strong, all the core muscles as a group need attention, which means adding some of the best oblique exercises to your ab workout routine!
Having a functionally strong core that effectively provides your body with the support and balance you need to perform both athletic and daily life activities optimally requires all the muscles that comprise your core to be equally strong. Focusing solely on just one or two muscle groups will create imbalances that cannot only detract from your movement efficiency and power but also increase your risk of injury.
One of the unsung heroes but key players in the orchestra of ab muscles are the obliques. The obliques are the muscles on the sides of your torso that enable side-to-side bending, torso rotation, and spinal flexion. There are actually two layers (the internal and external obliques), and both layers also play a pivotal role in stabilizing and protecting your spine by resisting excessive rotation of the spine.
Since these are clearly all important functions for everyday life and athletic performance, incorporating exercises that target your obliques into your workouts is critical. Moreover, because the obliques participate in several distinct functions, an effective training program should take a well-rounded approach to strengthen them by including multiple exercises that hit all the different functions and demands of the obliques.
Ahead, we share our best oblique exercises to strengthen and tone your "side abs." Try incorporating a handful of the moves into your workouts each week, switching up the ones you perform each workout.

How often should you train your obliques?
Some people say they like to work their abdominals every day, while others haven't done a single crunch in years. While it is true that consistent full-body strength training takes care of keeping your core strong, implementing the most effective oblique exercises every week will help you experience even more strength in your abdomen, in addition to better posture, increased stability, and more definition.

Can apple cider vinegar help with weight loss?
Read this first, if you're thinking about using ACV in your weight loss plan
Pouring apple cider vinegar on a spoon

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is an acidic liquid made from crushed apples that are combined with yeast. Over a two-step fermentation process, the yeast converts the sugar in the apples to alcohol. From there, safe bacteria is added, which converts the alcohol into acetic acid. The resulting apple cider vinegar liquid contains about 5% acetic acid, which is used for a variety of purposes -- from salad dressings to apple cider vinegar drinks for weight loss.

Many health enthusiasts boast about the amazing weight loss benefits consuming ACV can provide -- but are these health claims true? Here, we'll dive into the research to determine if apple cider vinegar is good for you and if you should include it in your weight loss plan.
