If developing a stronger core and a killer-looking midsection are included in their goals, some people feel compelled to immediately hit the floor and cycle through endless sit-ups and crunches, believing that doing so will “spot-reduce” their stomach fat. While you can’t selectively choose where your body will lose fat and quickly reveal ripped a ripped six-pack, you can build more abdominal muscle to strengthen your abs and make them look more pronounced.
To do so effectively, skip the crunches and sit-ups. Instead, follow Myprotein ambassadors and power couple Kirk Miller and Abby Pell as they take you through their ab-training philosophy. Miller and Pell hammer their abs with a total of eight gut-transforming exercises—some you might have heard of, others you probably haven’t even seen or tried.
All told, these unusual ab exercises beat the tedium of standard sit-ups and crunches, and give your stomach the necessary stimulus it needs to transform. Watch the video and try incorporating one or more of these exercises into your next ab workout!
