5 Best Ab Workouts For Women
Being a woman isn’t always fun and games, especially when it comes to fitness. Since we have less testosterone than men, obviously, we store a little more fat than we would like. It always seems that we have fat where we don’t it to be, which is why I want to take a minute to discuss the best ab workouts for women.
1. Stability Ball With Pelvic Tilt Crunch
This one is a great ab workout as it works every muscle in your middle section, plus your flutes, chest, and hips. To make this workout happen, grab a 5 to 10 pound medicine ball, lie face up on a stability ball with your back and head pressed into the ball. You feet should be close together on the floor and the medicine ball positions against your chest. Contract your abs and crunch upwards until your shoulders are completely off the ball. Then reach the ball towards the ceiling; you can also throw the ball in the air for some extreme effect. That’s one rep.
2. Walk The Plank And Rotate
This ab exercise work outs your whole core, which makes it into the top 5. Get in the plank position and then twist your whole body to put the weight on your left arm. Raise your right arm straight up, hold for three counts, come back to the plank position, and repeat with the other arm. That’s one rep.
3. Mountain Climbers
Get in the plank position and get ready for some core workout! Bring your knees towards your chest one at a time. Start with the right leg, then follow with the left leg. That’s one rep. You can go faster as well for cardio time.
4. The Fish Out Of Water
Lay down on your right side, to start, with you legs on top of each other. Lift your legs and torso upwards with your hand near your ear. Try to get closest to your lifted legs with your elbow. That’s one rep.
5. Plank Roll
This ab workout is great for women as it works the whole body. It’s an intermediate exercise though, so please keep that in mind and don’t get frustrated at the beginning. Get in a plank position with your shins about hip-width apart on a stability ball. Your hands should also be shoulder-width apart on the floor to keep the stability. Keep your feet on the ball and draw both knees towards your chest. Bring back your legs in a straight position, that’s one rep.
