Abdominal Training

By Andreia Brazier


I like to use the stability ball for variations, I always find new ways to keep challenging my abdominals.

I also use lots of cable exercises, hanging exercises, floor exercises, bench, etc...
Rep range varies a lot, sometimes 10,12,15 reps sometimes 25 to 50 reps.

I can do a circuit of exercises with 3 to 4 different variations, 10 reps of each from 4 to 8 sets! Depends on how I feel. My goal during training is the quality of the movement followed with the mental connection between the muscle that is working. I am a big believer in quality rather than quantity.


An example workout is as follows:

  • Hanging leg raises: 7 sets x 12 reps
  • Stability ball crunches: 7 sets x 15 reps
  • Bulgarian Bag Twist (pictured above): 60 Seconds  x 5 sets
  • Frontal Dynamic Plank on Stability Ball: 60 Seconds x 5 sets
  • Cable Multiplane Woodchops: 5 sets x 12 reps
