At least once a week, I explain to my FVT boot campers why we do not do crunches, sit-ups, leg lifts, etc. – that these “traditional” ab moves are actually bad for your back, that there are better and more effective ways to train your abs, etc.
I still get the feeling, though, that a lot of them just don’t completely believe me Because they always nod in agreement … and then, maybe five minutes later, they ask me – “when are we going to work our abs?”
At that point, instead of telling them, we go through a mini ab workout, where I can actually SHOW them how to properly train their abs. It is a great way to teach the concept, and to illustrate my point, it works (almost) every time!
So, I thought I would hook you up with one of these little core workouts for you to try for yourself at home.
Here is a “total body” ab circuit that we frequently do at the end of our workouts – it gets folks to really feel the abs working, and rest of the “core” muscles as well – and best of all, it does NOT include crunches or sit ups. Enjoy –
Thanks for watching, and talk soon –
