ABSolutely thankful its Friday.. see what I did there?? 😏😏😏
"How do I get abs?"
"I do 10000 crunches a day and see no progress, what do I do?"
"Why do I need to train core?"
All very great questions, and some there are vague answers. First off, you get abs from genetics, as well as being at a certain body fat percentage for your body where they can be visibly seen. Now, if you aren't dialed into your nutrition you can do all the crunches you want but the abbies are probably going to stay in hibernation. Regardless if you can "see your abs" or not, you need to make sure you are still training your core. They are just like any muscle group, you must strengthen them, and they also aid in the ability to better perform other ADLs.
Here below are some of my favorite core exercises to add in during my workouts or create a circuit with post workout.
🔥 hanging knee tuck each way + leg lift
🔥 cable cross body crunch (small weight attached)
🔥 weighted bench sit ups (DB or med ball)
🔥 DB J pull over + leg lower
🔥 hanging runners - feel free to add a band around your feet for intensity on the pull up!
No need to ever get super fancy with core training. Make sure you are sticking with the basics and not hurting yourself trying to do some cool crazy exercise for a video. 😂
Just keep it simple, and keep it fun.
