Most beginners would agree this exercise is very doable. Simply raise one knee and the twist your torso until your knee touches the opposite elbow.
Perform the marches slowly and keep your ab muscles tight throughout.
Reach Through Crunches
Reach through crunches are one of my favorite crunch variations. They’re very fun to do and very effective.
Lift your upper back off the floor in each rep and then slowly lower it to the floor while engaging your ab muscles.
Up and Down Scissors
Chances are you’ve never done this exercise. Well, it is excellent for activating your lower abs.
Keep your hands under your butt to reduce the pressure on your lower back. And keep your head off the floor to activate your neck muscles.
This phenomenal exercise doesn’t get the credit it deserves. It’s great for building ab muscles, especially lower abs because it has a wide range of motion.
Perform frog crunches at a moderate pace. Doing them too fast makes the exercise less effective.
Leg Up Crunches
Leg up crunches activate your ab muscles and keep your core strong. Lift your upper back as high as possible in each rep.
Also, keep the legs straight and your neck in its neutral position – avoid tucking your chin.
Many of us are familiar with this excellent exercise. It activates the rectus abdominis and oblique muscles.
Make sure your feet don’t touch the floor every time you extend them. And pull in the knee until it touches the opposite elbow.
Reverse crunches activate your abs without straining your lower back. Raise your hips as high as possible and then slowly lower them down to starting position.
Plank Knee Tuck and Twist
In addition to activating your ab and oblique muscles, this exercise strengthens your arms and shoulders.
Keep your body aligned in a straight line and abs tight throughout.
You’ve probably tried the elbow plank. However, you may have made mistakes that prevented you from getting the most out of this exercise.
For instance, letting your hips sink makes the plank less effective and increases your risk of lower back pain. Keep your shoulders, hips, and knees aligned in a straight line.
Also, keep your neck in its neutral position – don’t lower your head.
You probably know you should mix this workout with full body workouts. Well, this amazing workout routine offers the best full body exercises for a quick transformation.
