5 Best abs workout tips

Here are some abs workout tips you can try at home without any need for equipments. Perform each move below for the time given, resting for 5 to 10 seconds in between.

Plank

Time 60sec Rest 90sec

Maintain a strict plank position, with your hips up, your glutes and core braced, and your head and neck relaxed. Breathing slowly and deeply, hold the position for as long as possible.

Russian twist

Reps 12 each side Rest 10sec

Sit on the floor with your knees bent and heels on the ground. Your torso should be at the top of the crunch position, forming a 45° angle to the ground. Twist your torso from side to side, moving in a smooth and controlled manner.

Bicycle crunches

Reps 15 each side Rest 10sec

Lie on your back with your hands by your temples and your legs raised with your knees bent at a 90° angle. Bring your right knee up towards your chest while raising your torso and twisting so your left elbow comes to meet your knee. Then lower and do the same on the opposite side. Keep your shoulders and feet off the ground to force your abs to work hard to stabilise your torso.

Knee-in crunch

Reps 20 Rest 10sec

Lie faceup with fingertips behind ears and legs extended. Lift legs until feet are about 6 inches off the floor. Engage core and lift shoulder blades off the floor. Come up like you’re doing a regular crunch while also pulling knees in toward chest. Careful not to pull on your neck use your abs to lift. Reverse the movement to return to starting position.

Glute bridge

Reps 20 Rest 10sec

Lie faceup with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place arms on the floor by your sides, palms facing down. Keep head and shoulders firmly planted on the floor. As you inhale, press through your feet. As you exhale, squeeze glutes to lift hips off the floor.
