Free Ab Workout Routine
Bosu Ball & Swiss Ball Ab Exercises
Here's a free ab workout that uses the Bosu Ball and the Swiss Ball.
If you don't have access to either of these pieces of equipment, try another free workout from this site.
You can do this workout routine in 3 ways-- straight set, super set, or circuit style.
Straight Sets: This is the easiest ab workout because you perform one exercise at a time and rest 30-60 seconds between every set before moving on to the next exercise.
Super Sets: This is a little more challenging workout because you pair the first swiss ball exercise with the first bosu ball exercise and do them together with no rest between the pairs.
Circuit Style: This is the most challenging way to perform this routine because in a circuit style workout you would do all 4 exercises in a row with no rest between any of the exercises. After completing all 4 exercises, you should rest 60-90 seconds and complete the circuit again.
Below are the ab exercises. You can click on the pictures to get a more detailed description of how to perform the exercise.
