Having strong and firm Abs is the dream of every one, who start exercising and dieting. Some Ab exercises can be very painful and hard to do. Also working Abs alone will not give you the result that you are looking for. In order to get that firm and tone abs, you need to work all the muscles that make your core. Try these three Ab/ core exercises to get a firmer tummy.  Ask your kids to join you, to make it more fun. No equipment needed. All you need is your body and can do attitude. Let’s get started:

Here is the plan, 3 exercises for 60 second each and we are going to repeat for 3 times. Are you in?

Exercise 1: Kick Crunch

Muscle group worked: Hamstrings, core, glutes

Instruction:

  1. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart
  2. Lift your left leg as high as you can and try to touch your feet with your right leg. (Your goal should be to have a straight leg, but to modify, you can bend your knees slightly)
  3.  Repeat for 30 second on the same leg
  4. Change legs (right leg lifts and left hand touches) repeat for  30 Sec.

Exercise 2: Plank with knee to opposite elbow

Muscle group worked: Abs, Lower and middle back muscles (Lats)

Instruction:

  1. Start in a high plank position with core tight
  2. Bring your right knee as close to left elbow as possible. Make sure you keep your Abs in and engaged
  3. Return to starting position and alternate legs.
  4. Repeat for 60 Sec

Exercise 3: Low plank with hip taps

Muscle group worked: Abs, Obliques, lower back

Instruction:

  1. Start at forearm plank position with core tight
  2. Rotate your hip to the right and dip your body almost to the floor
