5 Great Ab Exercises

1) Hanging Leg Raises.

Start by hanging from a pull-up bar with your legs hanging off the ground. Keeping your knees together, slowly raise your legs until they are parallel with the floor.


2) Bench Crunches

This one is simple while laying on a bench place your hands behind your head and keep your legs dropped off to the side. Slowly crunch up and forward only using your abs.

3) Planking

This one is a classic, lay face down and prop your self up on your forearms. Keeping your entire body as tight as possible squeeze your hands into a fist and hold it for 20 to 30 seconds a set.

4) Medicine Ball Twist

Sit on the floor and grab a challenging size weighted ball. In a controlled/explosive movement, twist the ball from one side of your body to the other. For more of a challenge raise your feet off of the ground.

5) Medicine Ball V Up

Lie on your back and extend your arms straight back behind your head holding a medicine ball. Straighten your legs out and raise them off of the ground. Simultaneously raise your legs and arms together until your body forms a V shape, then slowly go back down and repeat.
