I love Saxon Side Bends and OH Squats. I don't really do ab work at all though... I prefer to have my belly.

Wukka, any chance you could explain what saxon side bends are? Is that where you hold weights over your head and bend to each side? Appreciate it a bunch if you could clarify.

Yup;

Quote:
Saxon Side Bend Ś 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.

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.
