Okay so it’s that time of year! For me that doesn’t mean a New Year’s Resolution to get abs it’s simply about a six-week period leading up to filming a role. I don’t always get that much lead time and frankly I need to be working on staying lean year round (but like most people that’s easier said than done). So as I am hitting workouts I am focused on ways to work my core and here are some of my favorites including a new technical way to do it.
There are tons of additional ways to work your abs and most of this was just a lead up to be able to tell you what works for me as well as to tell you about the Stealth Trainer (which I have zero affiliation with but certainly wish I did). Sometimes I am in awe of people that can invent something that you look at and say “now THAT is a great idea.” This is one of those because it makes working your abs through planks and hitting weird positions a breeze. I can’t say enough about it (although it’s not super fun like a lot of games because you are very aware that you are working out despite what they say in the ads).
So whether you are trying to lean out for a role or just want to try to pursue those six pack abs that have eluded you all your life (or both like me). I hope these exercises help you somewhat. Keep in mind though that abs are going to always be greatly impacted by your nutrition plan (sorry but it is largely about what you eat combined with exercises like these). Be sensible, eat clean, and get the abs you want!
