How to make any workout an ab blaster

 
Yeah, you want a bikini-worthy booty, and toned upper arms wouldn’t hurt either. But the area you’re most psyched to shape up? Your tummy, of course! We’re right there with ya, which is why we’re showing you how to turn any workout into an ab blaster in three easy (really!) steps.

 

 

Step 1: Be aware of your core

The simple act of thinking about your tummy muscles, even though the workout moves you’re doing aren’t obviously all about abs, will help you realize that pretty much everything you do involves your abdominals. Just try sitting up straight as you read this and breathing deeply. Think about your abs, then think about using them to stay straighter and more still. There ya go!

 

Step 2: Slow it down

Taking down the tempo often turns up the intensity, especially if you’re doing strength training or body weight resistance. Move through the motions slowly and carefully, and be aware of all the muscles you’re using to execute it. Upping the intensity in this manner will often require your abs to work double-time to give ya extra stability.

 

Step 3: Activate those abs

When in doubt, tighten ‘em up! If you can add a crunch-type move into what you’re doing (without hurting yourself!), then try it. If not, just tighten, release and repeat. Hello, six pack!

 

What’s your favorite ab exercise, sweeties?
