WE ARE AB OBSESSED
Our Top Ab Exercises To Get That Perfect Pack
When it comes to looking good, usually our midsection can be a challenge. It's not easy to build muscle in your midriff, at least noticeable muscle, that makes you feel bikini season ready.
While we have to let you know that abs are created in the kitchen, ab exercises are still UBER important. We have included our top 5 Plank ab exercises you can do to help you get closer to your washboard dreams, or to just keep it tight. We've highlighted modifications to help you maneuver any movement that doesn't work for your body. Our Founder, Ally Love, added a video of herself doing the workout too. Join her!
All you need is your best workout outfit and 2 small towels.
8 Elbow Planks Push Outs
Start in a forearm plank with towels under your elbows.Once you're in position hold the plank for a few seconds then slowly move your elbows out about 6 inches in front of you and slowly pull them back under your shoulders – using the towels as gliders. Be sure to keep your chest in line with your hips and stabilize your core.
Modification: Slide one elbow at a time.
20 second Plank Mountain Skiers
Place the towels under your feet. Get into an arm plank. Keep your back in line with your shoulder as you bend one knee toward your chest then alternate legs.
Modification: Shorten range of motion or just tap one knee down at a time.
From your plank, pull your hips towards the ceiling keeping your knees straight. This move varies in flexibility however it doesn't matter how far you can pull your hips up because we are moving for our abs. Keep navel to spine and slowly return your hips in line with your shoulders and ankles.
Modification: Move both knees to your chest instead of piking.
5 Pushup Pikes
Add a push up in your plank and followed by piking.
Modification: Do not add a push up
5 Abductor Push-up Pikes
As you move into your push up your legs separate into a V shape. Once you pull up into your plank your feet simultaneously come together to complete your original pike movement.
Modification: Limit your leg range of motion.
