Why Crunches Won’t Give You Flat Abs – and the 12 Moves that Will!
1. Crab Walk – This Kid’s Exercise Will Crush Your Core
Childhood crab walk races did more good than you realize — that’s why so many athletes practice the move as adults…. To do it, start as if you were about to crab walk, with your glutes, hands, and feet all on the ground. Press through your hands and feet to lift your hips until your body forms a straight line from your knees to your mid-back. Maintaining this straight body line, perform a crab walk. When it gets too easy, try the move on the next slide.
2. Take the Crab Hip Lift to the Next Level
….Make yourself a tripod: In the top of the crab position, reach one arm forward while maintaining the flat body position, then return the hand to the ground. Repeat this with each arm and leg. And for a real challenge, lift one arm and the opposite leg, touching your toe above your body.
