Ab exercises

  1. Ab exercises


    I was wondering what are some really good ab exercises. Recently I've been doing leg raises and reverse crunches, and front squats but was wondering if there was something else I could add in.

  6. Front squats require many stabilizer muscles to engage to balance the weight, including the ab walls. Any type of compound movement like squat/dead recruits almost every single muscle group. One handed side deadlifts are really good for stabilizers, so is the ab wheel. Some simple ones you could do are boxer twists, pike ups with med ball.

    After looking at the site I was thinking of doing Reverse Abdominal Crunches, Overhead Abdominal Crunches and Lying Oblique Leg Raises, or Dumbbell Oblique Side Bends. I don't have a med ball or money now to get any. Also I don't have much more room. I have to fit all my equipment in a townhouse.

  8. yea you can do all types of crunches at home, use the dumbell and do twists with legs slightly elevated. also you can do pike ups with the dumbell. Find a pull up bar and do leg raises and knee raises. Im about to start doing this L seat exercise:
