Find your perfect workout

Answer a few questions and find a workout plan personalized to you.




The core muscles include the rectus abdominis (which is the group of muscles referred to as abs), transverse abdominis (the set of muscles wraps around the side and spine of our body), erector spinae (which is located around the spine), as well as internal and oblique muscles (found around our ribs).

Fitness plans for abs are designed to target these muscle groups, especially if you are trying to get a 6-pack or have a smaller waistline.

Below are some ab exercises that you will find in our workouts to get abs that will take care of all core muscles. 

Sit-Ups

This ab exercise is one of the most popular exercises to get abs out and one of the oldest, and it targets the rectus abdominis muscle that was referred to earlier in this article.

Sit ups are great to incorporate into your abs workout and into a full fitness plan because it is simple to do, has many variations, and has a low risk for injury.

Flat bench lying with leg raise

This exercise for ab workouts is also very important and easy to perform as it can be done on a bench or a floor mat with weight added or not. This is one exercise that is great for developing lower abs and can be a staple for a lower abs workout.

Jackknife Sit-Up 

This a modified sit-up exercise is meant to not only work your main abs but also target other core muscles such as your obliques. This is a great exercise to incorporate in your abs workout that can help with tightening your core, losing belly fat, and getting you a 6-pack.

Flat Bench Leg Pull-In

This is an exercise that is a modified form of flat bench lying with leg raise. It is an important exercise to get lower abs that should be in everyone's fitness plan for abs. 

More for your abs workouts routine

There are also other important exercises to incorporate into your fitness plan to get abs such as Reverse Crunch, Crunches and Toe Touchers and they can be found in our various ab workout plans and routines.
