The 3 Best Ab work outs that Are Not Traditional Ab Exercises
Unique ab work outs that are not boring stomach exercises, no situps or crunches here
Mike Geary - Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer asserts Instead of the classic ab work outs that we see so regularly with crunches, situps, leg lifts, etc... I really like to give my readers better options for metabolism-boosting high intensity workouts that work their complete body while also working their abs... thus building rock hard abs & core, but also creating a much better fat-burning workout than a standard ab workout.
I am going to unveil to you an example today of one of my fave "ab work outs" that doesn't include any direct "ab exercises" at all. It is in a tri-set format [ similar to a super-set but alternating between 3 exercises ].
Here it goes:
1a. Renegade Dumbbell Rows
1b. Front Squats with Barbell
1c. Mountain Climbers on Floor
A good rep scheme to use with this may be 3-4 sets of eight reps for each exercise, or more sets for less reps, like 5 sets of 5 reps of each exercise. Mountain climbers can be done for a while interval [ like thirty seconds.
Renegade dumbbell rows are done beginning in a pushup position with the hands on 2 dumbbells. You then row one dumbbell up while stabilizing your body with your other arm. Return the dumbbell back to the mat and alternate the rowing arm while stabilizing with the opposite arm. This stabilizing effect during the rows creates incredible work for your complete midsection core area. Trust me... you'll feel it in the abs! Great ab & core exercise.
Front squats are done similar to back squats, however with the barbell before your body on the front of your shoulders rather than resting on the higher back as in back squats. You stabilize the barbell on your shoulders by crossing your arms and pushing your fists into the bar against your shoulders while keeping your elbows out in front of the body.
This takes a little practice at first, so you will want to search out a pro coach at your gym to help with the form. Front squats need extraordinary stabilization strength from the abs due to the barbell weight being shifted to the front of the body rather than the back. Though this is often a leg exercise, you will feel this one in the abs big time!
For rock hard abs front squats - shockingly is a good abdominal exercise
Mountain climbers are done by beginning in a pushup position and then shuffling your feet in so that your knees are moving in under your chest and then back out to beginning position. It kind of resembles climbing a mountain but flat on the floor. If you want an advanced version, you may shuffle your hands 8-10 inches forward and backward in addition to the leg movements. This really makes it a full body exercise and MUCH harder than standard mountain climbers.
After finishing each exercise, rest about half a minute before beginning the subsequent exercise. Rest about 1-2 minutes after completing each "tri-set" before repeating.
This can give you one of the finest ab work outs you have ever had without even doing any direct ab exercises. You may see what I mean after you try it! Best ab work outs manual
