Top 10 Ab-Ripping Exercises

Abs. If you build them, they won’t come–not if they’re covered in flab. Here’s 10 ab-ripping exercises to build and burn your abs at the same time.


10: Press Sit-Up

Last but not least comes the press sit-up. Lie down on a bench with a barbell resting on your chest. Position your legs so they are secure on the extension of the abdominal bench. This is the starting position.

While inhaling, tighten your abdominals and glutes. Simultaneously curl your torso as you do when performing a sit-up and press the barbell to an overhead position while exhaling.

Lower your upper body back down to the starting position while bringing the barbell back down to your torso.

So now you have my 10 best ab exercises. Which leaves one important question unanswered: What to do with this information? I suggest combining several of these moves into an abs circuit.

Along with being a major timesaver, ab circuits are cardiovascular, which over time will allow you to see those abs being built by these exercises.

Pick five exercises that’ll develop all the muscles in the abdominal wall and do 8 to 12 reps of each, one exercise after the other, until the circuit is complete. Then rest and do them all over again.
