Exercise Ball Workout for the Abs
Free Exercise Ball Ab Workout

If you want to work your abs, try this exercise ball workout.

The exercise ball is a popular tool for working your core muscles. Because the ball is slightly unstable, your abs and lower back muscles work harder during exercises.

Following is an exercise ball ab workout consisting of 4 abdominal exercises.

You can do them in straight set fashion, which simply means focus on one ab exercise for 2-3 sets of 10-20 repetitions.

You can do them in super set fashion, which simply means you pair two of them together and alternate between those 2 ab exercises for 2-3 sets before moving on to the next 2 exercises.

Or you can do them in circuit fashion, which simply means that you perform all 4 ab exercises in a row without resting.

Rest after you've finished the 4th exercise and then repeat the circuit 1-2 additional times.

Aim for 10-20 repetitions for each abdominal exercise. Rest when you need it and stretch your hips and lower back after you finish the exercise ball ab workout.
