I don’t particularly enjoy working my abs. It’s uncomfortable, and boring. But it’s also the spot I have seen the most results from working. So it’s worth it to do, and keep at it. Here are the ones that I hate doing, but find them worth it:
- The dreaded Planks: Yep. Just the old fashioned, straight forward planks. I do them consistently a few times a week (1 minute, three times), and am certain a lot of my strength in my core came from this super simple and boring move.
2. Fab 4’s: This is really 4 different moves in a series. I learned them first in Track in High School, but brought them back 12 years later for my pull up challenge.
Scissor Kicks: Laying on your back, legs about 6-12 inches off the ground in front of you, move them like a scissors, both vertically and horizontally.
In & Outs: Same idea, but you bring your legs into the chest and back out.
Bicycles: You know these, I bet.
