Over time less people have done oblique work, thinking they're just making their waist wider. What do you guys think? Don't do it myself for many years.
No question they're good for strength.I do heavy oblique work almost every week. Obliques are more important than recuts abdominus work for strength IMO. I like heavy carries, offset one arm carries, static side holds with a barbell, landmine twists and static holds on a 45 degree hyper with a dumbbell or kettlebell. I usually do these movements for time instead of reps. When going heavy I keep it between 15-30 secs. For lighter weight I like to go 1-2 mins.
did this happen Friday night or Saturday night? Or both? Was an excavator involved?I do a ton of it. Pallof presses, Turkish get ups, and lots of static planking.
Having strength in the obliques is key to being able to do technical stand-ups with a 2am butter faced bar fly passed out on you.
I mean...unless you want to gnaw your own arm off...your choice.

Pallof presses are another favorite as well. I actually just like doing them for time with the band held out in front of me.
You don’t happen to live near the Omega Moo sorority house by chance?I've got a cherry picker with a radio controlled servo wired into a 220v outlet by my bed. But...I'm a lounge lizard. A real self-loathing chubby chaser.
For those that don't have my professional setup and make the occasional "mistake"...the oblique work is helpful.
But yessir, pallofs are great. I do them in lots of weird ways. Arms up, down, doing lunges, single arm, all sorts of weird stuff.
