Top 20 Ab Exercises

It’s easy to get in a rut of just banging out a few crunches and leg lifts, but there are SO many more exercise to tighten and tone the abs. Here is our list of top 20 ab exercises.

To turn these exercises into a full workout, choose 3 exercises (making sure to get 1 exercise for the lower abs and 1 for the obliques). Do 3-4 sets of 15-20 if weighted, or 20-25 if non-weighted. Non-weighted abs can be done daily, but you need to let your body rest and recover after weighted crunches just like regular weight training. Have fun!

    About exerciser 10, why it called crunch and punch?

      Did you watch the video? It’s a crunch, then a one-arm punch with a dumbbell. Each time you crunch, you punch with one arm. :)
