Abs & Core Exercises


Abs & core exercises are an important addition to your workout routine for two primary reasons.  Firstly they contribute towards additional core strength.  And secondly, also more commonly; for aesthetic reasons. 

You may have heard the saying “abs are built in the kitchen”, but you should note that this isn’t the entire story.  Abs, as with all muscles are in fact built in the gym.  However, in this case, the intended message is the fact that abs are without a doubt, revealed in the kitchen.  So keep that in mind if you have an aesthetic goal. 

Simply choose your favourites below, each one links to more information and instructions on how to perform the exercise correctly. 

abs and core exercises

Whether you’re on an ab, or a strength mission, any of these abs & core exercises should fit nicely into your workout routine.  But also note that there are literally hundreds more to choose from.

As a rule of thumb, ab exercises are best placed towards the end of your workout.  Alongside any other finisher exercises you choose.  And as always, you are encouraged to add additional weight wherever possible.

Of course, you can’t build an entire workout on abs & core exercises alone.  So be sure to also check out our other exercises categories. 

Finally, keep in mind that building a workout plan isn’t quite as simple as throwing a few exercises together and hoping for the best.  Any workout plan you use should carefully consider your goals.  Including which muscles you want to target as well as the order in which you will perform the exercises. 

And as always, we strongly recommend that you keep a dedicated record of all of your exercises as well as your progress.  So be sure to get yourself a note pad or our dedicated tracker
