9 Days of ABMas – Day 4: Spiderman Plank Crunch

Standard

What I love most about this particular ab exercise is that it is a compound movement. It targets many different muscle groups at the same time giving you a bigger bang for your buck. This single movement involves not only a great core and oblique workout, but also gets your heart rate up and, ultimately helping you burn more calories. This is indeed one of the most effective ab workouts!

Steps-

  • Start in a traditional plank position with your forearms on the ground and your body perfectly straight.
  • Bring your right knee forward towards your right elbow, then return to the plank position.
  • Repeat by bringing your left knee toward your left elbow. That’s one rep.
  • Alternate sides for a total of 10 complete reps.

Advanced Move –

Add a push up to this movement.

Stay happy, stay healthy!
