Medicine Ball Ab Exercises

4 Ways to Use a Medicine Ball for Seriously Strong Abs

Four advanced ab exercises that turn up the intensity and go way beyond the basic crunch


1. Russian Twists
Start in a seated position on the floor with feet flat on the floor and knees bent. Lift knees so that shins are parallel to the floor and form a 90-degree angle with thighs. Hold a medicine ball in front of chest with back straight and elbows out to the side. Twist entire upper body from one side to the other, squeezing obliques. Continue for 30 seconds.
2. Toe Taps
Lie down with back flat on the ground. Extend legs straight above hips, toes pointed to the ceiling. Holding your shoulders one inch above the floor,  extend the medicine ball straight above chest. Squeezing abs, reach the ball as far as possible towards your toes. Continue for 30 seconds.
3. Jackknife
Lie down with back flat on the ground. Making sure lower back is flat on the floor, extend legs and hold them a few inches above the floor. Hold your shoulders one inch above the floor, and extend arms above head, biceps next to ears. Squeezing abs and exhaling, lift medicine ball and toes to meet. Slowly lower arms and legs back down to starting position without touching the floor. Continue for 30 seconds.  
4. Modified Jackknife
Start in seated position with feet flat on the floor and knees bent. Place medicine ball between knees, and lift feet so that thighs and shins for a 90-degree angle with shins parallel to the floor. Place palms behind sit bones for support. Keeping your chest open, back straight, and gaze forward, pulse knees into chest, squeezing the medicine ball throughout the movement. For an extra challenge, lift palms off the floor. Continue for 30 seconds.

How Much Can You Shorten Your Workouts and Still See Weight-Loss Results?

Can Microworkouts Really Replace A Full-length Session When It Comes To Losing Weight?

Not directly.  Unless you complete 5–6 microworkouts (spread out) in a day, you won’t burn enough calories to shed pounds. Even the spike in calorie-burning capacity, known as the afterburn, that follows high-intensity exercise won’t add up to much on its own — we’re talking a pound per month on average.
But that doesn’t mean microworkouts can’t help you drop weight for other reasons. A few minutes of intense exercise in the morning can set the tone for a healthier day and lifestyle over time.
“When people put in effort, even if it’s for five minutes, it sets a tone for the day,” says Tamir a certified strength and conditioning specialist and founder of TS Fitness in New York City. “You move more and eat better, and those behaviors can help you lose weight.”
To get the most out of your microworkout minutes, Tamir stresses that exercises should use your full body and require no equipment. Think: high knees, push-up planks and mountain climbers.
Follow his 6-minute circuits below to work up a sweat when you don’t have time for a continuous gym session.
6-Minute Body-Weight Workout
Exercises
High Knees: Run in place by lifting your knees up past your hips.
Bear Crawls: Start on all fours, with your knees off the ground and under your hips and wrists under your shoulders. Move opposite limbs in a crawling motion for four steps forward and four steps back.
Cross Mountain Climber: In a high plank position, bring your opposite knee toward your opposite elbow, and quickly repeat on the alternate side.
Crab Crawl: In a seated position, place your hands under your shoulders and lift your hips a few inches off the ground. Keep your chest out as you move your opposite limbs four steps forward and four steps back.

  • High Knees for 20 seconds with 10 seconds of recovery
  • Bear Crawl for 20 seconds with 10 seconds of recovery
  • Repeat 3 times
  • Cross Mountain Climbers for 20 seconds with 10 seconds of recovery

Workout Your Whole Body

A Quick 4-Move Bodyweight Workout


Got 10 minutes and a few feet of floor space? Then you’ve got all you need to do this intense and ultra-effective bodyweight workout. That’s right: No equipment, no gym membership, and no (real) time required. And believe us when we tell you that this workout will make you WORK.
Bodyweight workouts play an important role in creating a stable foundation that you will begin to add tone to by increasing muscle density. They’re effective at getting you to move with simplicity while being time efficient. Plus, anyone can regress or progress the movements to make them more challenging while increasing the amount of burn.
Get started on your goal now by trying this simple, quick workout created by Xio Colon at home, on your lunch break, at the beach (should you be so lucky)—pretty much anywhere. These four exercises will help activate the muscles that we don’t use when sitting at work, they’ll increase your heart rate, and fire up the abs and glutes, which are essential for a strong core and good posture. Perform the whole workout once through a few times a week. If after a few weeks it starts to feel easy, perform it twice through. When you can do that, you’ll KNOW it’s working!

1. Plank — 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest, 4 times total

Get into push-up position, hands on the ground, directly under the shoulders, shoulders pulled down and back, abs and glutes engaged, hips tucked under, legs together and fully extended, body in a straight line from head to toe.  Hold for 30 seconds. Rest for 10 seconds. Repeat four times.

2. Glute Bridge — Hold for 5 seconds, 20 reps total

Lie on your back, arms resting at your sides, knees bent, feet flat on the floor about a foot away from butt. Pushing through heels to activate hamstrings, lift hips and back off the ground so you’re resting on just shoulders. Hold for five seconds, then release. Repeat for 20 reps.

3. Walkouts — 10 reps total

Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Bend at the waist and place hands on the ground. Without moving legs, slowly walk your hands out in front of you until you’re in plank position. Perform a push-up. Walk hands back in and come back to standing. Repeat 10 times.

4. Squats — 20 reps total, 10 seconds rest, repeat

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart, toes angles outward. Keeping chest tall, bend and push knees outward as you sit back into your heels, until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Push through heels, and use legs and glutes to come back to standing. Repeat for 20 reps. Rest 10 seconds. Repeat.
