MY THREE FAVORITE MACHINE BASED ABDOMINAL EXERCISES. These have been my go-to for two and a half years. 🔥
1. Cable crunches
Make sure you are TIGHTENING YOUR CORE THE WHOLE TIME and crunch. I’ll usually find a weight I can do 25 reps on and go for 3-4 sets.
2. Captain’s chair leg/knee raises
It’s easy to use the wrong muscles for this. If your lower abs aren’t hurting then try again! Curl that butt up and lift those knees. Once you can pound out 3 sets of 15 reps with knees at an even pace try straightening out your legs! Lift from side to side to engage your obliques too!
3. Cable Wood choppers
These will work your seratus and obliques hard. Be ready to grunt and groan. Tighten and twist. Don’t rely too much on your arms! I usually do 3 sets of 14 reps EACH SIDE!
Having a strong core I foundational in every aspect of physical freakin living. It will improve how much you can lift, run, walk, talk, smile, dance, hang out, exercise, breakdance, yo-yo, train Pokémon, and laugh at memes.
Don’t focus ONLY on the front though, you’ve got to balance out your core - so make sure you do some back exercises.
Good luck, have fun
