We found a workout finisher that will smash your abs. This intermediate core workout by fitness expert Courteney Fisher can be done after a strength training or as active recovery on a rest day.
As a reminder, crunches, sit-ups, and planks will build core muscles but not shape abs. This helps you run faster, sit straighter, and lift more.
Cardio, physical training, and solid nutrition are needed to get visible abs. Why and how to determine body fat percentage.
Start now? These four exercises will sculpt your abs. Fisher suggests three rounds with one-minute rests.
Start this exercise lying on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor. With elbows out, place your hands behind your temples.
Breathe in and crunch your arms and legs around your midsection. Pause and repeat.

Twist your midsection and crunch your opposing elbow to your knee. Start again. Finish 12 reps on one side before switching.
Sit on your mat with your hands behind your head and elbows out. Roll backward, engage your core, and pull your knees to your chest,
then stretch your legs and roll up to a sitting position with your arms behind your head.
