Hope you are having a great gainz filled Sunday. Here is a @performixdriven workout that will build your abs. Perform each movement with control to really strengthen your core. Do each exercise 4 times. I prefer to do these one after the other but you can also do 4 sets of one exercise then move on to the next.
1.) Decline bench plate sit-ups: keep arms as straight as possible, when sitting up really push weight through your shoulders. 10 reps.
2.) Decline bench sit-ups: perform these immediately after Plate sit-ups. Only let your lower back touch the bench at the end of the negative before sitting up again, keeping tension on your abs. 12 reps total (4 center, 4 left, 4 right)
3.) Ball sit-ups: Careful not to over extend on these. The ball gives you a larger range of motion for a deeper negative. Focus on sitting up by only contracting your abs, do not swing or use momentum. 15 reps.
4.) Bench full layout sit-ups: these give your core a full range of motion and keep your abs under constant tension. Focus on your letting your core do most of the work in pulling your arms and legs together. 15 reps.
5.) Hanging knee raises: these are my favorite and I incorporate them in to almost all my ab workouts. Work on getting a full extension on the bottom of the negative, and only using your core to pull your knees to your chest. Do not swing or use momentum. 12 reps (4 center, 4 left, 4 right)
