Workout for Abs at Home

PRIMARY TARGET: Lower Abs
SECONDARY TARGET: Upper Abs and Obliques

  1. Lie flat on your back on the floor with your legs straight in front of you.
  2. Place your hands at your sides by the floor for support.
  3. Flexing your lower abdominals, raise your legs until they are perpendicular to the floor.
  4. Retaining tension on the abs, lower your legs to the beginning position. (Note: Maintain full control throughout the movement. Avoid the temptation to let your legs drop on the negative portion of the movement).

Exercise 3

PRIMARY TARGET: Upper and Lower Abs
SECONDARY TARGET: Obliques

  1. At this time, raise your shoulders and torso as far as possible from the ground in a curling movement without raising your back from the floor.
  2. Retaining tension on the abs, lower your legs to the beginning position and then bring your torso to the starting position as well. (Note: Maintain full control throughout the movement. Avoid the temptation to rock back and forth).

Exercise 4

PRIMARY TARGET: Lower Abs
SECONDARY TARGET: Upper Abs and Obliques

  1. Sit on the floor (or on the edge of a chair or exercise bench) with your legs extended in front of you and your hands holding on to the sides for support.
  2. Keeping your knees together, pull your knees in towards your chest until you can go no farther.
  3. Keeping the tension on your lower ab muscles, return to the start position and repeat the movement until you have completed your set.

Exercise 5

PRIMARY TARGET: Upper and Lower Abs
SECONDARY TARGET: Obliques

  1. Simultaneously bring your legs up as far as possible while at the same time bringing your torso towards them.
  2. Return to the start position and repeat the movement until you have completed your set. (Note: This is a modified version of a V-Up. In a true V-Up your starting position is lying down on the floor and bringing yourself up with no arm support).

Exercise 6

PRIMARY TARGET: Upper Abs
SECONDARY TARGET: Lower Abs and Obliques

  1. Lie flat on your back on the floor with your legs in front of you bent at the knees.
  2. Place your hands by your chest.
  3. Retaining tension on the abs, bring your torso to the starting position. (Note: Maintain full control throughout the movement. Avoid the temptation to rock back and forth).
