In this FItnessFAQs we will cover the truth about abs and what exercises you should avoid. Most people make the mistake of thinking crunches, situps, side bends and russian twists are a good way to train the core. Instead, we need to use exercise like planks, ab wheel roll outs, hollow body holds, bird dogs and hip flexor strengthening exercises.

In order to have an effective abs workout, even at home, the exercises in this video should serve the priority in your training. All of the popular YouTube channels including calisthenic movement, thenx and athlean-x tend to have a similar approach to building strong six pack abs.

How to get a six pack? Solid nutrition and a low body fat percentage is key. Spend your time working on ab stability and training hard with big compound exercises.

Because of this video, today I included 1 minute side planks in my training routine.
Thanks for this video reminder Daniel. πŸ‘πŸ‘

However I rarely do just a static plank. Too boring. Usually I do some kind of other movement during the plank.
In the case of the side plank, instead of just keeping the free arm up in the air, I use a 5kg dumbbell to do external rotation exercise of the shoulder joint.

I keep the elbow close to my body and move the dumbbell up and down for the duration of the plank. πŸ‘πŸ‘

Why breath into the stomach (1:41)? I've always concentrated on breathing into the chest, what's the difference?

I should mention that I do Breakdancing and Power Yoga

Alex S. says:

Jeff Cavaliere though would disapprove of including the regular plank in this workout, since there are more athletic exercises according to him xD
