Three Simple (But Great) Ab Exercises
What are the right exercises? Here are three of them: planks, crunches, and lying leg raises. Collectively, you’re hitting the abs top to bottom, inside and out, with this trio. Planks work the entire core, including those deep muscles that are important for boosting athletic performance, strength gains in the gym, and reducing injury risk. Crunches target the upper abs, and leg raises zero in on the always-stubborn lower abs. Boom! Done.
Next time you’re at home and want to get in a quick ab workout, do the below routine. If you’re at the gym, you can do it there as well – either tack it on to the end of whatever body part or full-body workout you’re doing, or start your routine with abs to prioritize your six-pack development.
Do this workout 2-3 days a week in addition to training all other major muscle groups and being conscientious of your diet (high protein, healthy fats, moderating carbs), and you’ll see those abs start to pop before long!
