    Serratus Anterior


    For those of you that dont know...these are the muscles to the sides of your abs between your hip and armpit

    Any good exercises for really targeting these?

    Dumbbell pullovers work the serratus.

    Any exercise that has shoulder adduction has some serratus movement (e.g. side laterals).

    Try lying on an incline bench with your back to a pulley stack, then basicallly do a wide grip pullover, i can go really heavy with dumbell pullovers say 140-150 but these target the serratus more for me, with much less weight.
