Build Godlike Abs with SLFitness.
The Perfect Core is desired by many, yet often attained by few. Its a combination of hard work, the right exercises, and of course the right nutrition. Many people seem to believe that the odd salad and endless crunches in the gym will get you there but it WONT!
Not to worry Spencer Lissamore Fitness has you covered in these 5 steps to Godlike Abs!
1. SPIDERMAN PLANK CRUNCH
Start in a traditional plank position with your forearms on the ground and your body perfectly straight. Bring your right knee forward towards your right elbow, then return to the plank position.
Repeat by bringing your left knee toward your left elbow. That’s one rep. Alternate sides for a total of 10 complete reps.
2. CABLE ROTATION
Stand holding a cable with both hands out in front of you at just under shoulder height. Keeping your arms fixed and straight and your abs engaged, rotate your upper body to the left, then back to centre, and then to the right, and then back to centre. That’s one rep alternate sides for one set of 10 complete reps.
3. BICYCLE CRUNCH
Lie on your back with your hands behind your head, and your legs raised and bent at 90 degrees. Alternate sides by bringing your right elbow towards your left knee then your left elbow towards your right knee, building up to 60 seconds. Try and hold the crunch for a two-count on each side to force a slower, concentrated movement.
4. CROSS CRUNCH
To perform the Cross Crunch lie on your back with arms and legs diagonally out so that your body forms an “X” shape. Keeping your arms and legs straight, bring your left hand towards your right foot, then your right hand towards your left foot, lifting your head, neck, and shoulders off the ground. That completes one rep. You should aim for one complete set of 10-12 reps.
5. SWISS-BALL ROLLOUT
Kneel on a mat with your hands on a Swiss stability ball. Keeping your back straight and your abs engaged, roll the ball as far away from you can, then slowly roll back to starting position. Aim for two sets of 10 rollouts.
The above exercises are all easily possible at Home or in the Gym. An home alternative for the cable rotation would be to take a resistance band and wrap it around a door handle holding the resistance band at a distance and rotating appropriately.
The SLF App has all the tutorial videos for each exercise. Explaining:
