    I have to say it's the best oblique exercise I've ever done. :bigok:

    Much better than russian twists or saxon bends where my arms would die far before my obliques even felt it. One complaint though... I still felt like my obliques arent pushed as much as it could. My delts were fried a little before my obliques were. Is it supposed to be like that or am I doing something wrong :o

    I dont know if you are doing it right or wrong, a couple things that you may or may not be doing though are: 1) when you twist make sure you let your feet point the direction you are twisting (makes it harder and prevents you from tearingyour knees up). 2) you should clasp the bar with your fingers interloocked and you should be looking directly at your hands. If you set up like that you probably did them right.

    on a side note if you want to try something harder, get a tornado ball and go side to side for a good 30-40 seconds.

    edit: the kid in the link above is a good example of a piss poor landmine
