Intense core workout to target both abs and obliques. Proper core training combined with a good diet produces results.
Here is an excellent 3-round core workout to destroy your entire midsection. You can do this workout on its own or after your main workout.
Core is one of the most important areas for athletic ability and a defined muscular core is a sign of power and aesthetics. You want athleticism? Take core training seriously.
Your core will get plenty of work done with movement training and heavy compound lifts, but to reach the full potential your core needs to be sufficiently trained.
The more you focus on one area, the better gains you can expect. Just make sure you train all the others parts of the body as well since your body will always aim for equilibrium and structural balance. You will reach the best results when your body is balanced and whole.
Contrary to what many people think, you won't get a "bulky midsection" by training the obliques - instead the obliques will make your core look narrower because your sides will be more defined and not soft.
