    You bet! There is a reason Boxers use skipping to get and stay in shape, IT WORKS! It is a great cardio workout and after a while you will actually not feel your calves work as much any more as it will get use to it. So yes skipping is great for fat loss and cardio fitness.

    I USED to do it every day, since my exams came, Now I’ll try to get regular again. A thing that U said “Do this once per week” Can’t I do it everyday or any day I like. I mean now I can skip rope like I do strength training, I was very fat before, Now I m improved a-lot, but still I have BF. What do you suggest?

    With oblique workouts I like to only work them out once, maybe twice per week but no more. Rather focus on doing some extra cardio, full body weight training or upper and lower ab workouts.

    Well I don’t know how much they will be in your country but over here they where SUPER expensive! Close to $800 for the stand and dumbbells. They are very nice though but don’t let them fall, as they break easily!

    hey peter a question here can we do the side bends double sided i mean lifting from one side directly leaning to other one with dumbells on both hands or 1 sided ones are more effective ?

    Hi peter
    I am 15 years old and i have the upper abs and upper part of the obliques very defined .. What do you think i should do to finish the six pack ?

    Maybe you just need to drop a few more pounds or develop your lower abs more.

    hey peter, so a lot of your workout videos I’ve been looking at (especially the abs), contain exercises with some sort of weight (dumbbells, medicine ball), and I’ve been craving for ripped abs a long time but I’m still quite young (15 years old) and as far as I know weight lifting disrupts your growth and I certainly dont want that. So I wanted to know if this is true and what I could do.

    Hey, you suggest me to do this once a week plus some cardio workout, and other day do arms excercise or it may be better to do two sessions of obliques per week.
    I’m your fan Peter, your videos are very useful. Congrats, keep rocking

    @ Dav – make sure your lower back doesn’t arch, pull navel to spine all the time!

    Wow!!! I wish their was a way I could load a pic of the results I’ve had from using your workouts! I’m a 22 year old female with a pretty big bone structure. I’ve always been overweight. But thanks to you, I’ve gone from 86kg to 72kg, from 26% body fat, to 12% body fat and all that in 2 months and training twice a day, 7 days a week. I’m competing in August in the Miss Body Beautiful South-africa comp. Wish me luck!!!
