Ab Workouts For Men



One thing we recommend is to try to get into the habit of doing a few core exercises every day. Whereas for a large body part where you’re lifting weight, like your legs, you need to have adequate rest days between your workouts, when discussing ab workouts for men or women, you’re able to perform exercises daily. On Daily Spot, we recommend Sarah’s Daily Core program, as it uses a mix of core, abdominal, oblique, and even full-body workouts to safely work your entire core every day. The best part is that you only need to work out your core for 10 minutes a day to get the benefits. It also helps to be mindful of engaging your core during your other lifts as well.

Ab Workout Routines

Ab workouts for men can be done in the gym or at your home. These are some of the easiest workouts to create for yourself, as they rarely rely on any equipment, and you’re likely already familiar with the most popular exercises. We’ll dive into detail about a few of these specific routines on our ab workouts at home page, but for now, we’re going to highlight something else you should strongly consider working into your routine: yoga. Yoga is an incredibly powerful workout, not only for your core, but also to loosen all of the muscles that you’ll be working out during the week. One of the major benefits of yoga is that you need to be very aware of your core in almost every pose, which translates into a valuable habit for your other lifts. Whether you’re doing yoga, planks, squatting, or even curling, having a good sense of when your core is engaged is incredibly important. In addition to your normal routine of planking, try switching-it-up with a yoga class, or try Debbies yoga sequence on Daily Spot. That’s a great ab workout for men.


Ab Workouts For Women

Don’t fall for the branding (we’re on to you Kayla). Instagrammers and fitness celebs love to talk about why their ab workouts for women deliver even BETTER results than anywhere else. Well, I’m sorry to say that’s just not true. Most of these ab workouts are very similar to one another. After all, the key to getting the tone and definition that you want is making sure you work out your core (easy) and then getting your body fat percentage low enough that the fat no longer covers up the results (harder). We’ll expose some of the most used ab workouts from these instagrammers, and now when you see their routines first-hand, you’ll know they’re just pulling from the same variety and putting their own spin on it.


Ab Workouts at Home

Out of all body parts, ab workouts at home will most closely resemble the ab workouts you’d do in the gym. There are dozens and dozens of various ab workouts that can all be done in your apartment or bedroom and provide a great core workout. Given the ease of doing ab workouts at home, there’s no excuse to skip a day. Try getting into a routine of doing a few minutes of planks right when you wake-up in the morning. Or, perhaps you warm-up before you go to the gym with a round of crunches. Whatever the case, the core is too important to neglect, so we’ll need to do our best to at least work out our core a few times a week.
