Build Strong Abs With These Five Core Exercises

Flat and sexy abs looks like a dream for those who have big belly. The keys to having six pack abs are low body fat levels (under 10 percent) and strong abdominal muscles.
Stronger abdominal muscles improve your ability to keep your body in balance, prevent lower back injuries, and improve your posture.

Reducing your waist size and tone your abs may not be as easy as you thought, but you can do these five exercises to strengthen your core muscles. If your body fat level is low enough, your six-pack abs will definitely pop out.

Static curl

Lie on your back with a roller towel placed under your lower back. Put your hands behind your head or the sides of your head. Push your head and shoulder forward so that your upper back is lifted a few inches off the floor.

Hold this position by contracting your abdominal muscles, don’t let your upper back touches the floor for five to ten seconds before getting back to initial position. Repeat this a few times.


This exercise will put an end to most lower back problems. Start by lying on your stomach on the floor with your lower arms and feet supporting your body (almost similar to push up position). Lift your pelvis up and keep your back flat. Hold this position by keeping your abs tight for a minimum of 10 seconds.

Gradually increase the duration. Do this exercise for 3 minutes as a start. Remember not to cheat as your pelvis tends to sag down during this exercise. Look at yourself in the mirror and keep a flat line from shoulders to toes.


Lie down on your stomach with both arms extended in front of your head. Raise your arms and legs as if you were flying. Squeezing your abs will help keep your body balance. Hold this position for a few seconds. Do it a few times.

Band-Core Twist

Wrap your resistance band to a pole or anything stable. Place it as high as your chest. Hold on to the band grips or wrap the band around each hand if it doesn’t have grips. Start at standing position then bend your knees and lower yourself as low as possible. Your center of gravity is now all on your heels.

Hold it for a few moments. Bring yourself back to initial position by stretching the band and bringing your hands against your ribs.

Side Bridge

Lie on your side with your arm bent parallel to the floor and perpendicular to the body. Place one leg on top of the other and lift your ribs off the floor.

Keep your abs tight and hold this position for 30 to 60 seconds. Breathe
normally during this exercise. Do it a few times before switching to the side.
