Ab workouts are sometimes the hardest and the ones you least enjoy doing. When you think of abs you automatically think about difficult exercises like sit ups. I usually prefer doing weight exercises than getting on the ground and doing core exercises.
1. Dumbbell Chop
The Dumbell Chop is basically the same thing as if you were chopping wood. This exercise is a great to strengthen your core, abs, back, and shoulders.
2. Side Bend
The side bend exercise might look simple but is a real challenge to your abs. After a couple side bends your sides will start to burn meaning that your abs are doing the work.
3. Overhead Extensions
This is one of me favorite exercises that I do on a regular basis. This exercise to me is the most effective you can do it two ways, standing up or sitting down. I usually do them standing up and it really builds a strong core and works your upper part of your abs.
4. Standing Core
Like the side bend, the standing core looks easy but makes you use all your strength.. Let me tell you that after a couple you will start sweating fast.
