Although I always change up the exercises in my abs workouts, the exercises shown were from two of my original ab workouts.
So in a sense, you could say these abs exercises started me on my journey to rocking 6 pack abs all year round.
I usually perform my ab workouts with no breaks and in circuit format.
I’ve broken out the 11 abs exercises below based on the area of the abdominals they primarily target.
This area of the abdominals is better known as the upper and lower portion of the abs.
This is the most prominent and noticeable area of the abs as it gives you the visual six pack effect.
The recuts abdominis runs vertically between your pubis and the ribs.
The visual six pack effect is created by one vertical line down the middle and three horizontal lines across the rectus abdominis (called tendinous sheath).
The rectus abdominis functions to help flex the spine when narrowing the space between the ribs and the pelvis.
Therefore, to work the rectus abdominis, you need to narrow the angle between your ribs and pelvis by crunching the upper or lower body.
The obliques are located on each side of the rectus abdominis.
The muscle fibers run vertically on a diagonal from the lower ribs to the pelvis, and forms the letter “V”.
This is often called the V-cut.
The obliques function is flexion of the spine, torso rotation, and to support and stabilize the abdomen.
This is the deep layer of abdominal muscle.
It wraps around the torso from the ribs to the pelvis, front to back.
The muscle fibers run horizontally.
This part of the abs helps with exhaling air from the lungs and can stabilize the spine.
