Strong Abs Workout Guide

Strong abs mean a strong body and better athletic performance. So, it’s no surprise we all want to work on our core.While there’s truth to the saying, “Abs are made in the kitchen,” you still need to work on those muscles to strengthen and improve them. For the best results, target not only the “six-pack muscles,” but also the obliques and the muscles deep within your core.

Abs are one of the most attractive muscles in men and women. Generally, people with visible abs have 6 or 8 packs.

Abs Workout

Getting a little idea of anatomy can help you to understand your workout better.

1. Rectus abdominis

Upper, middle and lower abs come under rectus abdominis. A combination of all of this is called rectus abdominis. When you hit either lower or upper abs, your whole rectus abdominis gets activated, but the tension is of course more on the part you are training.

2. Obliques

Obliques are located on both sides of six-packs. Internal oblique lies under external obliques. Obliques help in rotation of the spine.

3. Dead bugs

Lie on your back with your arms and knees in the air (like a dead bug), press your lower back into the ground, and lift your glutes. Reach out with your right leg and left leg at the same time while keeping your lower back flat on the ground, keeping your hips off the ground and exhaling all of your air. Switch sides and repeat.

4. Pall of Press

Get on both knees and set a cable handle to chest height. While facing perpendicular to the cable, bring the handle to your chest. Brace your core, squeeze your glutes, and keep your shoulders and hips directly over your knees. Push the handle straight forward and hold for three seconds. Bring it back to your chest and repeat. Then, switch sides and repeat

5. Plank

The plank is a core exercise that targets most of your abdominal muscles. To start, lie on the ground on your stomach. Plant your forearms and toes into the ground and raise your body. Form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. The only thing touching the ground should be your feet and forearms. Push your forearms into the ground to round your upper back and curl your hips in to keep your lower back flat.

6. Rollout

While on both knees grab an ab-wheel, and push forward. Descend as low as you can, then pull yourself back up. Make sure to keep your arms straight and your hips extended the entire time.

7. Side Plank with Leg Lift

Lie on your side and place your forearm on the ground, perpendicular to your body. Keep your body straight, your glutes squeezed and your shoulders pulled back. Don’t let your hips sag. Reach up with your top leg.
