Warrior Ab Workout Intense & Advanced Ab Exercises for Flat Abs

The warrior ab workout targets your abs with warrior workout moves that burn fat, build full body endurance, and build core strength. This ab workout is only for the advanced exerciser who has a strong core.

If you have not worked abs like this before then build ab strength and endurance for 3-4 weeks with the lean abs workout before trying this workout.

Perform 2 sets of 10-20 reps of each exercise with 10 second rest between sets. Unlike many of the other ab workout found here this is not a circuit.

Pay close attention to what your low abs are doing. If you can do more reps than recommended then you may not be using proper form and your legs, hip flexors, or upper body is doing most of the work. Try the Toned abs workout to strengthen your deep ab muscles and learn how to engage your core.

Bench Reverse Crunch
1. Start by lying on your back and holding onto the bench with your hands above your head.
2. Keeping your knees bent to 90 degrees left your legs up off the ground and bring your knees up and towards your shoulders.
3. Your range of motion should be far enough so that your hips curl back towards your shoulders as well. Lift your legs and hips with control to avoid jerky motions that create momentum.
4. Return to the starting position and repeat for the desired repetitions.

Warrior ab workout tip:
You can also do these on the floor with hands behind head. Pause at the top for 3 seconds then lower slowly for more intensity.

Wide Leg Upward Dog
1. Begin by lying on the stomach on the floor. Place the hands behind the shoulders and bring the legs out to the side slightly wider than hip-width.
2. Relax the buttocks and the legs. Inhale and push evenly down through the hands and lift the chest up towards the sky, gently arching the spine. Roll the shoulders back and down and away from the ears, look up towards the sky.
3. Do not allow the lower back to collapse down towards the floor. Stay connected to the core musculature by pulling the navel in towards the spine and lifting the pelvic floor muscles.
4. Keep the fingers and thumbs spread evenly pushing down through all four corners of the palms. Relax the buttocks and the legs. Lift the thighs and chins off the floor pushing down evenly through hands and through the tops of the feet.
5. Do not allow the lower back to collapse and keep connected to the core. Stay here for 5 to 10 deep breaths.

Warrior ab workout tip:
The stretches are just as important as the ab exercises so don't skip. They help you build lean long abs vs. bulky abs. Be sure to keep shoulders down and shoulders blades together to open up chest and pull abs apart.
