If You Want a Six-Pack
Rock-solid abs are built by working your entire core, not spending hours crunching up on a mat. “This quick circuit keeps you moving and engages your abs, obliques, back, hips, and glutes,” says Jameson. Perform three rounds with 30 seconds rest between each, and no rest between sets.
Pullover Tucks: Lie faceup on floor with arms extended overhead, legs extended and together in front of you. Lift legs a few inches off floor, and then tuck your knees in and raise hands overhead, lifting your upper body off the floor to touch your toes. Lower back to start. Do 15 reps.
Alternating Hip Drops: Hold a plank position on your forearms as you drop your hips to the right to tap the floor. Engage abs to rise back to start, and repeat on left. Continue alternating for 10 reps on each side.
Military Sit-Ups: Lie faceup on floor with knees bent, feet flat, arms crossed over chest, hands on opposite shoulders, and elbows pointed toward ceiling. Engage abs to sit up to touch elbows to knees, then lower slowly back to start. Do 15 reps.
Russian Twist: Sit on floor with knees bent, feet lifted two inches off the ground, and hands clasped together in front of your chest. Rotate your torso to right and tap floor beside you with right elbow; rotate back through center and repeat to left. Your feet shouldn’t move during the exercise. Do 10 reps on each side.
Fingers to Toes: Lie faceup on floor with legs extended toward ceiling, arms by sides. Engage core to reach up to touch fingertips to toes (or as close as possible), then lower slowly back to start. Do 15 reps.
