8 EXERCISES ABS THAT AREN’T CRUNCHES

Are you bored of doing the same old ab routine and not seeing any results? First of all, I will point out that ab exercises alone are NOT going to give you the abs of your dreams, it is a scientific fact. Many people get trapped into the mindset that sit ups = abs. While they are a great exercise to get your abs burning, they can get pretty repetitive and boring pretty quickly.

The key to a STRONG core is to use a range of exercises that also target all of ab muscles, including your obliques and deeper abdominal muscles as well as your more superficial (outer) ab muscles.

Try this women’s workout for flat abs, with some variety!

Set a timer for 7 minutes and complete each of these exercises in Circuit 1 as many times as you can. Once the timer goes off, have a 30 second rest and reset the timer for another 7 minutes, and complete Circuit 2. While you are trying to work as fast as you can, it is important that you maintain good technique to help get the most out of your workout.
