Kendall Jenner relies on this 11-minute at-home ab workout that shows results fast
In an interview she said, "Sometimes when I'm watching TV, I think to myself, 'I should be doing crunches and sit-ups right now,'" "Then I get off the couch and do it."
Ashley Joi, an expert trainer at Centr, said, "Any move that targets your core is great for your body because it makes you stronger and more stable, aids your posture."
Cathy Spencer-Browning, VP at MOSSA, said, "The high plank shifts the focus a little bit more toward the muscles of the upper body, with a focus on the shoulders and arms."
"The side plank targets muscles differently than the regular sunny-side-down plank," says Spencer-Browning.
Spencer-Browning said, "Not only do we strengthen the obliques, upper back, and shoulders, but now we add the muscles across the front of the hip as well."
Joi said, "By lifting one leg, one arm, or both (on opposite sides) off the ground simultaneously, you're forcing your body to stabilize and find balance"
Rock out, plank-style. You're gonna feel the burn in your core, shoulders, and upper back.
"This exercise is like a bicycle crunch and high plank in one," says Spencer-Browning.
"Crunches develop the muscles on the front of the core," says Spencer-Browning.
"You'll be surprised how much coordination goes into doing a bicycle crunch!" Joi notes.
Vertical crunches bring in muscles along your spine to support your core, which helps with your posture and balance throughout the day.
"The frog crunch feels slightly more intense than the crunch because of, surprisingly, the elimination of muscles," comments Spencer-Browning.
Last exercise, but not the least. This move hits your lower abs, which can be tough to reach using other ab exercises.
