Although “made in the kitchen,” we still want to get after them in the gym!
Try this simple and effective routine to attack your abs from all angles:
1. Leg raise to hip elevation (modified version: keep knees bent throughout) 2. Basic crunch 3. Russian twist
Perform as a circuit (one exercise to the next with about 15 seconds rest between exercises) for 1-4 rounds based on your current fitness level. Rest for about a minute between circuits. Perform each exercise to muscle failure (max reps).
MUSCLE BALANCE For every chest exercise (ex. chest press), remember to work in a back exercise (ex. mid-row). Same goes for balancing out the triceps and biceps, as well as the quadriceps and hamstrings.
KEY: Working opposing muscles groups evenly will not only ensure proper muscle balance and symmetry but also help to avoid injury. 🙌
