I love flat abs!!! That being said, ab exercises can be a bit lackluster. Not to mention hard on my tail bone and lower back.
True story: I did a 30 minute intense ab class, 30 MINUTES, and I literally couldn’t walk for a couple of days due to hurting my tail bone.
So I have been searching high and low for the easiest and most effective ab exercises and here they are!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
#1: Abdominal Hold!
This one is pretty self explanatory, but just in case you need a little more walk through check out the video. Or do the Bianca version:
Stop what you’re doing, stay seated(this may be done in the car, at your desk or even in bed), put your hands on each side and lift your body up for as long as you can. I can do this for a solid 20 seconds. You may be able to go longer because my arms are the weakest part of my body. I’m trying to improve that.
Check out a video here for a full visual on how to do it correctly, even though I know my version is really useful! I’m not joking.
I love planking, but seriously, just the exercise not the viral stunt. So this is a plank, but a crunch too!
Here’s how to do it:
Get in a side plank position.
Lift your arm straight up and then curl your arm in a hugging motion but don’t let the arm fall near your body.
Repeat 15 times, 3 times and done!
It WERQS your ab muscles, but more importantly it’s easy on the back and you can do this anywhere.
Just in case you didn’t see it before, you can do these exercises anywhere!
I know! Don’t you love me?! I meant “it”. I’m a mere vessel for your ab work outs.
