Ab Circuit Workout for Intermediates

This ab circuit workout includes 5 challenging ab exercises that strengthen the entire core, and flatten the abs fast.

They also improve ab endurance and coordination so you can progress into the more advanced ab exercise routines.

Perform 10-15 reps of each exercise. Go from one exercise to the next without rest. After one circuit take a 30-45 second break and stretch the upper abs then repeat.

If you can do more than 15-20 reps of each exercise with excellent form then you are ready to find more challenging ab exercises.

Reverse Crunch Scissor Kicks
1. Start by lying on your back with your legs perpendicular to the floor.
2. Slowly lower one leg until you are no longer able to keep your lower back neutral to the floor.
3. Lift your leg back up and then repeat with the other leg for the desired repetitions.
4. As you get stronger continue to lower your legs closer to the floor as long as you can keep your back neutral with the floor.

Ab circuit workout tip:
Do not put hands under the butt and rest the head on the floor. Keep belly button drawn in the entire time so low back stays flat against the floor the entire time.
