If you are new in the gym, you may feel a little confused because of the different ab machines. The worst thing (kinda) that you can do is to randomly jump from one machine to another. If you have a trainer, you are in a better situation since they will help you out. Unfortunately, in most of these cases, that costs extra money. And most of us don’t just have spare dollars lying around.
To make things easier for you, we’ve found an excellent video made by Chelsea Novak in which she shows us some powerful gym ab workouts. The abdominal exercises found in this video will help you to train your whole core muscles, lower back, and they also help with weight loss.
Besides, you will not need to use so many machines, mainly just an ab bench and your bodyweight (as we encourage with all of our fitness programs). Therefore, if you only want to go to the gym to train your abdominals, it is maybe a better solution for you to invest into a simple bench and just stay at home!
This gym abs workout is suggested for women. However, it is absolutely suitable for men as well if they have just started to train their abs.
Easy exercises for women’s abs
- Leg Rises on Sit Up Bench: This is the typical leg raising exercise that is great to train their entire core, mainly the lower abdominals. As you can see, Chelsea pushes herself up at the end of the movement, this way she strengthens her upper abs, as well.
- Decline Hip Raises with Twist: This sort of gym exercise helps to target your obliques very effectively. It is important to control the movement to concentrate the muscles around your hips. If you want slimmer waist, do this exercise.
- Decline Sit Ups: Many people do not like doing sit ups, but it is an excellent exercise if you do it correctly. It is important to keep your back straight and form the motion on the right way. If you have lower back pain, do this exercise carefully. You can read about sit ups here.
- Rotating Plank Push Ups: Static plank exercises are very powerful ab exercises to train the midsection. By combining planks with different movements, you can train your muscles even better. Rotating plank push-ups train not only your abdominal muscles, but also your shoulders as well as the chest.
