8 Workouts To Get Those Jaw-Dropping Washboard Abs

1. Glute Bridge March

Glute bridge march is one of the best ab exercises for rectus abdominis (your six-pack muscles) and transverse abs (deep abs muscles). It impacts two sections of your abs and also works your glutes. The exercise will help your stability as well.

2. Plank

No core workout is complete without the plank. This essential ab exercise impacts more muscles than most exercises and is excellent for transverse abs.

3. Mountain Climber

Mountain climber is one of the most popular core exercises, which gets your heart pumping and is good for rectus abdominis (your six-pack muscles).

4. Hip Lifts

How to do this exercise: 1. Lie on your back and raise your legs. They should be perpendicular to your torso. 2. Now pull your navel towards the spine and raise your hips a few inches off the ground. 3. Bring back your hips down to the floor. Restart the motion. 4. Keep your hands beside your torso and flex your feet towards the face. 5. To increase the intensity of the move, complete each rep without bringing down the hips to the floor.

5. Sit Ups (With Towel)

Sit-ups are a popular core workout move that is quite simple but highly effective. By adding this little twist to this exercise, you will not only make it easier but also increase its effectiveness. Placing a rolled-up towel beneath the lower back area will provide your spine with adequate support. It will also let your abs do most of the work (rather than your hips!).

6. Side Crunches

This rather complicated abs workout move is not only a test for your balance but also impacts your oblique muscles and hips.

7. Abdominal Hold

This core strengthening exercise may seem a little bit difficult but it is just what you need for super strong abs. All you need to master this movie is a sturdy chair or a step with 4 risers.

8. Single-Leg Stretch

This all-time favourite Pilates exercise will impact the top of your abs. Don’t be discouraged if it takes you some time to master this move.
