    1. Hehe, thank you :) I did it that way for years, and it´s not right. Here, trainer Jo, showing us he has no clue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bVcLMlYZM8
      If you bend to the left side, you should contract your left oblique. If you bend to the right side, you should contract your right oblique. This “genius” is hiperextending the opposite oblique, which obviously “burns” but it´s not because it´s a good work. At least, we should bend to the opposite side you´re grabbing the weight.
      Also, the point is we shouldn´t use more than 5 pounds and perform up to 50 reps each side (8-15 reps = bulk). Contract your obliques consciounsly, don´t swing, and you can safe time using two dumbbells.
      Thank you, Cameron, I need to edit this post and clarify it :)
      Have a great weekend!
      Big hug
