Nobody loves ab exercises — but chances are you’re probably doing them anyway.
Many of us are plagued by a little extra around the middle, and while ab exercises can’t single-handedly undercover six-pack abs (they’re in there, somewhere), core workouts can improve your posture and balance, ward off low-back pain and build a base for tougher full-body workouts down the road.
You might not love any of the moves below, but incorporating a few new exercises to your ab routine can at least offer a change of pace. And mixing up your workout routine won’t only save you from boredom but can also bring about the results you’re so desperately working toward.
Check out the ab exercises below that you’re probably not doing, then tell us what your favorite core exercise is in the comments.
