Wow! This is only 2 minutes long, but man does it work those obliques! There’s just a couple of different moves in this routine, but you’re basically shaking your hips nonstop for 2 minutes straight. It burns!!

It is short, so it goes by fast and stops just before you really feel like you can’t go on anymore.  If you’re a beast, you can do it several times over and absolutely kill those obliques. But 2 minutes is just enough to really get a good burn in!

On top of that, this video is super fun. Leilah does a great job of explaining the moves, so it’s super easy to follow and super easy to do, which lets this video double as a mini-tutorial, too. You will enjoy feeling those obliques work while you’re shaking that booty!
