Killer Ab Circuit
Ab Exercise #1: Side Bends on a Board
Varying your hand position can change the difficulty of this exercise. If your hands are behind your head it will be more challenging than if your hands are at your sides or across your chest.
Perform 10-15 on each site, and move on to the next exercise.
Ab Exercise #2: Oblique Sit Ups
Sit Ups can be a great exercise if you have good form and no history of back pain. You can substitute oblique crunches if the sit ups are too challenging.
Perform 10-15 reps on each site, and then move on to the next exercise in the circuit.
Ab Exercise #3: Moving Side Planks
The moving side plank is a great exercise for the core and it can improve shoulder stability.
Perform 10-15 reps on each side, and then move on to the next exercise in the circuit.
Ab Exercise #4: Side Crunches on the Ball
It may help if you place your feet against a wall to stabilize yourself during this exercise.
Perform 10-15 reps on each side and then move to the last exercise in the circuit.
Ab Exercise #5: Alternating Ball Crunches
This exercise will finish off the circuit. Rotation really emphasizes the muscles on the sides of your waist, so make sure you twist your body and not just your arm.
Perform 10-15 on repetitions on each side. Rest for 1-2 minutes and then repeat the entire circuit a second time.
This workout is very challenging on both the abdominals and the lower back, so you should start slow and build up if you haven't been working out often.
Rotational movements and side bending movements work both the sides of the stomach and the lower back muscles, so make sure to stretch after the workout and listen to your body.
