3 FUNCTIONAL EXERCISES FOR YOUR ABS:
1. BENT KNEE SITUPS with medicine ball (use a decline bench if available). Seated on the floor start up with knees bent holding medicine ball straight up above your head, lay back keeping med ball over your head. Focus is on upper abs.
2. RUSSIAN TWISTS. On the floor with ball or weight in hand keep your feet crossed and off the floor. Move the ball/weight to your side as close to the floor as possible without touching and then to the other side (that’s 1 count). Focus is on obliques or sides.
3. LEG LIFTS. Lay flat on the floor with your hands placed under the side of your butt. Feet together lift off the floor into an L position. Lower feet back down as close to the floor as possible without touching. As that becomes easy try with feet apart and up into an L position. Focus is on lower abs.
