Sit ups are a staple exercise for sexy abs. These should be added in to your ab and core routine.
Get on the ground and lie on your back. Contract your knees. Ask a gym bro to hold your feet while you do sit-ups if you don’t have a brace to hook your feet under.
Place your hands behind or on the sides of your neck.
To elevate your body off the ground or a bench, bend your hips and waist.
Returning to the starting posture, lower your body.
I actually use these about twice a week in my workout routine. Leg raises are great for sexy abs.
Lay down on the ground or a mat to begin. Raise your stretched-out, at-your-side legs as you lie flat with your arms by your sides. Lift your legs as straight as you can, as close to the ceiling as you can manage, and keep them there. Be sure to stand on pointed toes.
Afterward, bring them back down. The rate at which you elevated your legs should be maintained on the return. Then elevate them once more, lowering them until they are barely off the ground.
Planks are great exercises for sexy abs.
Start out face down in a plank position with your forearms and toes on the ground. Your forearms are facing forward, and your elbows are directly under your shoulders. You should be looking at the ground with your head relaxed.
Draw your navel toward your spine by contracting your abdominal muscles. Your body should remain firm and straight from your ears to your toes, without sagging or collapsing. The neutral spine posture is shown here. Check that your shoulders are relaxed and not rising toward your ears. Your heels should be higher than the balls of your feet.
Evil wheels are my favorite abdominal exercise for sexy abs. I first learned of this when I played football and we used them in the offseason.
After the first time doing these, my abs were sore for a whole week.
Grab a mat and a barbell with plates on each side. Place the barbell over the mat and kneel down. Grab the barbell with both hands while remaining on your knees. Extend forward with only your knees on the ground.
Come back to the start. You have now completed one rep.
Russian twists are another great exercise for sexy abs.
Sit on the floor and create a V-shape with your thighs and torso by lengthening and straightening your spine at a 45-degree angle from the floor. With your hands clasped or interlocked, extend your arms straight in front of you.
Twist to the right, then to the center, then to the left using your abdominals. There are many variations of this exercise where you can use weighted dumbbells. There is even a variation where you simply twist a barbell around your torso.
Hanging leg raises
Another great finisher for sexy abs is to do hanging leg raises. I’m not gonna lie- these are very hard to do. Hanging leg raises require you to be very balanced and not swing.
Here are in depth steps so you can use this exercise to get sexy abs.
Use an overhand grip on the bar, keeping your hands shoulder-width apart. Your palms should be facing front as you raise your arms straight above your head. To preserve proper form, keep your arms in alignment with your shoulders. After that, take an overhand grip on the bar with your hands.
If required, use a bench or a strong chair to go to the bar.
Your arms and shoulders may become sore from an underhand grip, in which your palms are facing backward. With this exercise, always hold the weights over your shoulder.
As you lift your legs, keep your knees straight and engage your core. To manage your movement, rely on only your leg and core muscles. Raise your legs slowly in front of you while you hinge at the waist. Keep your feet firmly planted together and your legs as straight as you can.
Don’t swivel your body. Your legs and core should be the only sources of movement. Drop your legs back down slowly to complete one rep.
Two point bridge
Get in the push-up position with your hands beneath your shoulders and your core tight. Lift your left foot and right arm until they are parallel to the ground, keeping your abs tight and resisting the impulse to lift your hips.
Lower gradually, then repeat on the other side. You have now completed one rep.
Have someone punch your abs (seriously)
Have you ever watched a boxing movie where the main character would have other people punch his abs in training?
I saw this in the movie Rocky and was skeptical at first. “There’s no way this works” I thought. I went to the gym the next day, hung from a pull up bar, and had my friend lightly tap my abs. This heavily engaged my core and I got a great ab workout in. Do this for sexy abs.
Dumbbell side bends
This is another amazing core exercise for sexy abs.
Dumbbell side bends are done by grabbing two dumbbells in each hand and rotating at the hips side to side. This exercise will work your outer abs and obliques.
Rope slams can only be accomplished at gyms with elite equipment, however they are an amazing exercise for sexy abs.
This exercise will get you all around jacked, because you use almost every muscle in your body.
Complete this exercise by grabbing two ropes attached to a wall at your gym, pick one up in each hand and slam them down on the ground.
Medicine ball slams
Similar to the rope slams, medicine ball slams are an amazing exercise for sexy abs. This exercise is also a full body one that hits your abs and core.
I recommend going with heavy medicine balls in order to get the most out of your muscle gains, and not just tire out doing light reps.
To complete this exercise simply grab a heavy medicine ball, and slam it into the ground. Pick it up and repeat.
V sit ups
V sit ups are amazing for sexy abs.
You can do v sit ups by lying flat on the ground, and raising your legs and hands to meet each other at the same time.
Your torso and legs should make a “V” shape with your arms connecting.
The ab machine is sure to get you sexy abs. There are lots of different ones at gyms across the world, but they all pretty much do the same thing.
I like using ab machines because they let me go as heavy as possible on my core.
L sits are more of an endurance exercise for sexy abs.
To do an L sit, you grab two blocks and put your hands on them. You should raise up on your hands and sit in the air.
Spiders are the last exercise on the list for sexy abs. You simply get into a plank position, and pull each leg into your chest with a bend in your knee.
Do one leg at a time, and repeat.
How can I get sexy abs?
The number one key to getting sexy abs is to be shredded. Sure, you can have big ab muscles, but like anything, if it’s covered by fat you won’t see it.
The easiest way to burn fat is to eat at a caloric deficit and avoid processed foods. Learn the in depth principles of how to shred fat to burn off extra flab so you can see your six pack.
Of course, you do need to build ab muscles which is what we’ll be talking about today.
Can you get abs as a girl?
Yes, you can get abs as a girl. While they might not be as muscular or shredded as a guys abs, (due to the guy having higher testosterone), you will still be able to build them.
How can I get aesthetic abs?
Aesthetic abs come down to two things. One- genetic makeup, two- low body fat.
Unfortunately, your genetics may not line up with your idea of “aesthetics.” Arnold’s abs and Zyzz’s abs will always look different. The one thing you can do though is lower your body fat enough to make your abs more defined.
How do I get the V at the bottom of my abs?
The V at the bottom of your abs is obtained through again, low body fat, and a strong core. This is called an adonis belt. The V part is actually more of a tendon than a muscle, so you should focus on lowering your fat % rather than trying to exercise it.
There aren’t a whole lot of exercises you can do to make this pop, so focus on regular ab exercises instead.
What is the V line called on a guy?
The V line on a guy is called an adonis belt. Right after sexy abs, this is actually the second most sexy body part on men according to girls. The good news is, everyone has an adonis belt.
