Seated bar twist

The seated bar twist is a core exercise meant to strengthen the obliques. It is often performed for high reps with relatively light weight, such as an empty barbell, a lightweight fixed-weight bar, or even a PVC pipe. It can be performed during a workout, at the end of a workout, or outside of the gym to build core strength and resiliency.


  1. Builds size and strength in the obliques
  2. Builds oblique strength that carries over into any turning or bending movements
  3. Contributes to better core aesthetics
