One of the main reasons you aren’t seeing the results you want in the gym could be because you aren’t training your core enough. It isn’t called “the core” for nothing. It sustains the balance and strength of the entire body. The stronger it is, the stronger you’ll become in all other exercises. And you’ll not only get the coveted six-pack, you’ll also see yourself becoming stronger and more muscular in every part of your body.
In this article, we present to you 7 simple movements which will give you a stable and strong midsection. Some of the exercises are done on your knees; when you eliminate the feet and legs from keeping you stable, you are forced to work your core harder, which will have a great impact on your abs.
Incorporate these movements into your training regimen and you’ll see really fast results in the form of a flatter stomach, shrinking waist, more endure and more muscle which translated into more calories and fat being burned.
Always remember to keep the abdominal muscles tight and engaged throughout the movements to get the most benefit.
