What do you guys do for core/abs exercises?

I have an issue working this part of my body and need some insight. :thumbsup:

Get a partner for this one :

Lay on the ground and have a buddy stand infront of your head, while you grip his or her's ankles... With your back staying on the groung lift your legs up parallel together, until, they reach your partner's hands, when they reach he or she will push your legs back down with force and you lift repeatedly.

3 sets of 10 and you cant laugh no more !! haha

Switch it up with your partner pushing your legs side to side as well as straight down.

Grap a bench for this one :

Lay on your back with your ass at the edge and hold your legs perfectly straight out and hold for as long as you can... Or set it

30 seconds, 20 seconds, 10 seconds.

For side abs ( Oblique's ) grap a 45LB weight and hold it by your side and extend down towards your feet. Again set reps are the best.

Grap an excercise ball and ly on your back on it and do regular crunches... This ones a bitch... Once again set reps...

When all of the above burn's.....KEEP GOING

Good Luck !

Hey Playa...

A couple of fun ones for you:

Knee dips: (works thighs, glutes, and core)
- With pretty high intensity touch one knee to the ground, then in one motion switch knees that is touching the ground. Time it, try to go for 30 seconds, or 45 seconds, or a minute. After you can do a minute no problem add some weights in your hands.

Leg Raises (works thighs and core)
- Lie flat on your back and lift your legs 90 degrees. You can also do them alternating legs

Punching bags are also unbelievable for core strength.

Good luck dude:thumbsup:

Part of the core is lower back.



More deadlifts.

As with any exercise, more weight, more muscle gain. Train your abs like you do any part of the body - don't do normal crunches. Do weighted crunches. And so on - always use weights.
