3 Abs Exercises

I don’t train “abs” a lot, but I use total body exercises that work my abs all the time. And the ab exercises that I do have in my program are not traditional ab exercises. No crunching for me.

Instead, I use what I call “total body ab exercises“. Currently, my 3 favorite bodyweight ab exercises are:

1) The Pull-up (or Chin-up) plus Knee-Up combo
2) The Ab Wheel or Diagonal Ab Wheel
3) X-Body Mountain Climber

Check out this awesome abs triset from Workout A of Phase 2 of the Advanced TT for Abs Home Abdominal Workouts.

It uses the Ab Wheel (or you can sub in the Stability Ball Rollout if you don’t have the little wheel gadget).

A)  Ab Wheel or Stability Ball Rollout – 10 reps  –  No rest.
B) Stability Ball X-Body Mountain Climber (Hands on Ball) – 10 reps  –  No rest.
C) Pushup Side Plank – 30 second hold  –  Rest 1 minute & repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 trisets.

You’ll never have to do another useless crunch on a stinky, sweaty dirty gym mat or hotel room floor EVER again!
