Creating The Best Ab Workouts
Here, I’m going to take you through an extremely effective ab workout.
For this workout, you don’t need any equipment. It will take you no longer than 10 minutes and will leave you feeling great!
You will perform 3 sets of 10 for each exercise with a 15 second rest between each set. Let’s begin!
Straight Leg Toe Touches
These are great for the upper portion of your abs. You will lay on your back with your legs straight up in the air and you will crunch up as you try to touch your toes. Repeat for 3 sets of 10.
Reverse Crunch Twists (5 Each Side)
These are a great exercise for the lower portion of your abs as well as your obliques. You will start on your back with your knees straight up and bent at 90 degrees. Then you will drive your knees up to your chest and twist at the top. Repeat for 3 sets of 5 to each side.
These are a great all over core exercise that you are going to hate with love. Laying in sit up position, you will take both arms and reach towards the sky. From there, you will sit up, keeping your arms pointing straight up. Then keeping your arms straight up, you will control yourself as you return back to starting position. Repeat for 3 sets of 10 reps.
These are planks taken to the next level. Here, you will get into plank position. You can do this on your hands or your elbows. Then when in position, you will take your core and act as if you are trying to push your low back to the ceiling. Make sure you focus on crunching your abs while you do this. Repeat for 3 sets of 10. If you cannot do this, do 3 sets of regular planks for 30 seconds.
Straight Arm Russian Twists (5 Each Side)
These are an advanced version on regular russian twists. You will sit back on your butt, with your feet and upper body off the ground. Then you will hold your arms out straight in front of you. From here, you will turn your shoulders until your hands touch the ground to your side. Then turn to the other side until they touch again. Remember to focus on turning with your torso, rather than using your arms to touch the ground. Repeat for 3 sets of 5 to each side.
