Ab exercises for fall and winter! (Click the exercise title to see a video on how it’s done!)
1. Russian Twist on a BOSU
This BOSU Russian twist will work your arms, back, and abs (especially the obliques). The BOSU ball creates instability, and the weighted medicine ball challenges your muscles to work harder. If you don’t have access to a BOSU, try this seated Russian twist instead.
2. Dumbbell Side Bends
A great alternative to sit-ups, dumbbell side bends will work your entire abdomen for a killer six-pack. With this move, love handles are a thing of the past.
3. Pilates Alphabet
Lie on the ground, raise your legs, and write the alphabet in the air with your feet. This dynamic exercise will strengthen your low abs in no time. Make sure to keep your abs engaged the entire time!
4. Split Crunches
Forget run-of-the-mill crunches; split crunches will work your legs, back, and abs. Over time and with stretching, you might be able to do a full split crunch!
