No Ab Machines Necessary Means No Excuses!

No need for fancy ab exercise machines, these simple home ab exercises can deliver a great ab workout.

When it comes to working your abdominal muscles, you really don't need fancy ab exercise equipment. The floor is the cheapest ab machine you'll ever find.

Below are 4 exercises that you can do at home in a circuit or super set workout. You can click on the links or pictures for more detailed instructions.

Ab Exercise #1: Ab Crunches

Ab Crunches are a great place to start any at home ab workout.

Crunches place a little more emphasis on the upper abs.

Perform 10-20 repetitions of Crunches and then with no rest move on to the second ab exercise.

Ab Exercise #2: Reverse Crunches

Reverse Crunches are a simple exercise that move the lower part of your spine.

Reverse Crunches place a little more emphasis on the lower abs.

By combining regular crunches and reverse crunches you are exercising your spine in 2 different directions and slightly changing the emphasis in the upper abs and lower abs.

Perform 10-20 repetitions, and then move on to the next exercise.

Ab Exercise #3: Bicycle Crunches

Bicycle Crunches are one of the most effective ab exercises you can do at home.

If you only had time to do one ab exercise, this is the one I would recommend.

Bicycle Crunches emphasize both the rectus abdominus (6 pack) and the obliques.

Perform 15-25 repetitions on each side, and then move on to the last exercise.

Ab Exercise #4: The Plank

The Plank is a great stabilization exercise, and you can do this exercise anywhere.

It focuses on the deep abdominal muscles and the transversus abdominus.

This is an isometric exercise, which means that there is no movement.

Hold the plank position for 10-60 seconds.

Use these 4 at home ab exercises to build up your abdominal strength. Repeat the circuit 2-3 times.

For most ab exercise you can do at home, visit the Directory of Abdominal Exercises on this site or try another Free Ab Workout Routine.
