How to train Abs at home

You want to train your abs but you can’t go to the fitness? No problem, we’ve got you covered with a list of some abs exercises you can do at home. Let’s begin!

Plank

Put your palms on the floor. Keep the hands at a shoulder width apart. The shoulders should be directly above the wrists. Extend the legs behind your body. Keep the feet at a hip width.
Tuck the tailbone, engage the core, quads and butt. Hold for a particular amount of time.

Forearm plank

The same as above but rather than putting the palms on the floor, place the forearms on the floor with the elbows being directly under the shoulders. Keep the hands faced forward in order for your arms to be parallel.

Mountain Climber

Start from high plank, keeping the palms flat on the ground at shoulder width, shoulders above the wrists, extended legs and engaged core. That’s the starting position. Keep the core tight and draw one of your knees to the chest. Return to starting position and immediately more your other knee to the chest. Return to starting position. Now you’ve done one rep.

Continue alternating the legs. Keep the core engages and the back flat.

Jackknife

Lie face up. Extend the legs and extend the arms overhead on the ground. Keep the hands close to the ears. Contract the abs, press the lower part of your back into the ground. That’s the starting position. Point the toes, squeeze the thighs and glutes and simultaneously start lifting the legs and upper back off of the floor while reaching the hands forward to meet with the feet. Keep the core engaged. Slowly start going back to starting position.

Scissor Switch

Lie face up. Keep your legs straight. Keep the arms extended over your head. Extend the right leg up until it reaches a perpendicular with respect to the ground position. Bring the hands behind the right leg and pull it toward the face. Curl your shoulder blades to lift them off the floor. Lift the left leg off the ground for a few inches. Switch legs and lower your right leg to a few inches above the floor. Pull your left leg toward the face. Continue the exercise by alternating the legs.
