[font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Saxon Side Bend — To the credit of the great Arthur Saxon, this is simply one of the finest core movements you can perform. This is a humbling movement that'll have you second guessing preconceived concepts of strength. [/font]
[font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]With feet spread roughly 18 inches apart and pointed straight ahead, hold dumbbells above your head close together. With total control, bend to one side and repeat to opposite side. Range of motion will be very modest and you'll find this movement requires a much lighter weight than you'd expect. As you bend to the side, keep the torso tight and the weights close together. Keep rep count low as with the other lifts, generally using around six reps per side.[/font]
With that said, I prefer regular side bends.
i personally think that exercise sucks
I personally agree... although i cant think of any decent oblique exercises either
try doing these with a plate (hold it by both ends) as opposed to 2 dumb bells.
i reaqlly need to do something for o0bliques, it has been like atleast two months since i hit em... gotta throw in some side bends or landmines on monday.
Didn't you used to preach it?
