BY MEMBERS, FOR MEMBERS

Build a super strong core with these tried and tested ab exercises by member Danny @dannygibbons90.

All you will need for this workout is a barbell, swiss ball and bar to hang from.

Created in collaboration with PureGym’s Harley Booth, Fitness Expert.

AB ROLLOUT

Ab wheel roll out

REPS: 12-15 SETS: 4 REST: 30 secs

Use an ab wheel or barbell. Begin the exercise on your knees with hands on the wheel or barbell. Stretch out in front until your chest is nearly on the floor. Hold for 1 sec and then bring back to the start position.

LEG RAISES

Ab leg raises

REPS: 12-15 SETS: 4 REST: 30 secs

Start by hanging on a pull up bar with your core tight and legs hanging down. Keeping both legs straight, draw your abs in to pull them up. Try to avoid swinging. Control legs back down to the start position.

You can try this exercise on a functional rig or on a cable machine.

HANGING WINDSHIELD WIPERS

HANGING WINDSHIELD WIPERS

REPS: 12-15 SETS: 4 REST: 30 secs

SWISS BALL KNEE TUCK
