We all know, “Abs are made in the gym, but revealed in the kitchen” and to achieve that ripped, ‘toned’ look, you need a low body fat percentage which comes with a healthy, calorie controlled diet. However, you also need to have something to reveal. You get this, by developing your abs and core like any other muscle. Training them routinely, with weighted and bodyweight exercises.
We have collected a list of 30 amazing ab exercises that are super effective at building a strong core and developing your ab muscles. Try incorporating some of these different ab exercises into your routine and see how they feel. Some of the exercises will target your lower abs, upper abs, your obliques or your entire core.
With any ab exercise, it is important to contract your abs and complete slow and controlled reps with proper form throughout the entire movement. Make sure you research the motion and complete it slowly at first to make sure you have the correct form.
