Second, to get abs that “pop” you need to train them in order to strengthen the muscles. There are 5 exercises for your core that can help this process, alongside core exercises that already require abdominal work such as deadlifts, squats and pull-ups.
When performing any exercise, keep your core engaged, but especially keep it contracted during these awesome belly-blasting exercises!
3. Swiss Ball Oblique Crunch
4. Medicine Ball Sit-ups
5. Toe Touches
Try doing four of these exercises in one circuit, repeating it several times. Here’s an example workout to get you started:
Planks- Hold to failure
V-ups – 20 reps
Swiss Ball Oblique Crunch -20 reps each side
Medicine Ball Sit-ups- 20 reps
Toe Touches – 20 reps
(Repeat circuit 3 times)
This would be a great way to start your workout or to finish a grueling cardio session! Make those abs work as hard as you work in the kitchen so that you can really show off your progress!
