In today’s article, we present to you a combination of abs exercises that have been proven to be extremely effective!

Many fitness instructors complicate the process when it comes to making the perfect abs. In truth, you don’t need a lot of variations of exercises.

What matters the most is the food that we consume and follow these exercises that are effective and workout your whole abdomen section and you’ll see amazing changes in a matter of weeks.

Side Plank Crunches

  • To start this exercise you need to lay down on your side so that only your forearm and the side of your foot are touching the ground and then to make your body into a straight line (side plank position).
  • Then you need to bend at the waist and lower your hip towards the ground and then back up again and next to repeat for the desired amount of repetitions and then switch sides.

Medicine Ball Twists

  • Sit down on the floor, lift your legs and back as much as you can.
  • With your arms spread forward, turn to one side of the body and then to the next.
  • Repeat this exercise 10 times. Complete 12 full rotations. (That’s 24 twists!)

Medicine Ball Jackknives

  • Medicine ball jackknives are some of the most effective exercises for working your core in a very short time.
  • Lie down, your legs straight.
  • Hold a medicine ball above your head. Raise your legs up keeping them as straight as possible while bringing the medicine ball toward them.
  • Lower down slowly then repeat. If you find them difficult at first, bend your knees toward your chest instead of keeping your legs straight.
  • 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions per side will make your abs burn.

Mountain Climber Crosses
