Let’s face it, we all want some killer abs for summer, whether we admit it or not. But driving all the way to the gym or having equipment to use isn’t always possible. I’ve learned 4 different lower ab workouts that are easy to do at home without all the hassle!
- Instead of holding a simple plank, bump up the difficulty and add in leg rows! Pull each leg one by one up to your chest while continuing to hold your plank. You can either do this in reps or by setting a timer. I usually try to do about 20 reps or a minute. Do what’s best for you!
- There are tons of different names for this exercise, but I call them hip tips! Lay down on carpet or a mat (whatever is comfortable) and lift your legs to a 90-degree angle. For me, I have to place my hands under me to be able to do it. But if it’s easy enough for you, place your hands under your head. Take your legs from 90-degrees to parallel with the ground. Don’t let them touch the ground as you lower them! Then raise them back up and repeat for as many reps based on your own ability.
- If you haven’t heard of Russian twists, then get ready to be amazed! These don’t seem to be as hard as other ab workouts, but they work your lower abs just as much. Pick up your legs and upper body like the picture on the right. Move your arms from side to side, touching the ground after each movement. You can hold a weight or medicine ball, too. Seems pretty easy at first but just wait!
