I was just wonder if anyone had any input on this topic. I wanted to know if anyone does obliques and abs separate or if they do them together. Also what is the most effective? Thanks..
Training the entire core is far more important (this includes the erector spinae).

ok thanks for your help....
You know, some people can work out obliques and not build their sides, but I see as I get a little older the more I train obliques, I feel I am getting muscle-love-handles. And I just dieted for a show so it isn't fat. lol
If you do decide to train obliques directly, keep an eye on that.
What are these "abs" you speak of?
I do a core circuit every other day (technically my off days).
I usually pick 5 or 6 exercises. My favs are:
Weighted Russian Twists
A typical core workout for me would look like this:
Weighted V-Ups, 12 reps
Chinnies, burn out
Russian Twists, weighted 15 reps
Weighted Side Extensions, 8 reps
Side Plank, 45 sec per side
--3 Times, resting one min at end of circuit.
