Bicycle Crunches: Continuous for 40 seconds
Take your standard crunches to the next level with bicycle crunches to target your upper abs and obliques. Elevate your legs and crunch on an angle by bringing your left elbow to your right knee and then your right elbow to your left knee.
Leg Lowers: Slow for 20 reps
Feel the burn in your lower abs with these ones. Lying on your back on the floor, bend your knees slightly and lower towards the floor and then back up to the sky. Make sure you’re engaging your core by bracing your abs and ensuring your lower back remains on the ground at all times.
Plank Up Downs: As many as you can til exhaustion
Sculpt a stronger overall core with plank up downs. Start in a full plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Lower your left elbow to the ground and then your right, coming into an elbow plank position. Then straighten your left elbow, and then your right, returning to a full plank positon.
