By David Grisaffi
You have Squatted, Crunched and
Thrusted to obtain remarkable abs but something’s amiss.
Don’t lose hope if none of your previous workout
routines hasn’t helped you with your abdominal goals. We
have found the best and most unique abdominal exercises
that will melt away the fat and help you get perfectly
Each of these abdominal exercises focuses on one of the
three major planes of movement - sagittal, frontal and
transverse giving you a complete abdominal workout.
While men will most definitely benefit from these
abdominal exercises, these are ideal for women too. So
all you girls and boys out there get ready for some
curling, kicking and twisting – almost literally!
List of Unique Abdominal Exercises:
Crocodile Walk Now you are thinking “what is
this about”? Well I use it with my wrestling team and
clients who are really trying to get their entire body
involved in an exercise. This really burns the calories
too and you will begin to sweat almost immediately. This
is your nervous system on high gear.
Position: Assume a push up position with your arms next to
your body, head in neutral position with the spine.
1. Contract the abdominals and slowly start crawling
forward left arm and right leg moves together. Then
alternate to the right arm and left leg.
Keep neutral posture at all times. No bowing of the
back, no head up etc
2. Crawl in this fashion for 10 to 15 gait cycles.
3. Repeat 3-5 times.
Tornado Ball Horizontal
Note: You will need a tornado ball 2-6 pounds
Assume a standing position with good neutral posture
with feet a little wider then shoulder width and in a
good athletic stance about 1 foot from a solid wall.
Grasp the rope of a Tornado ball with both hands.
1. Inhale and draw you belly button in to stabilize your
spine. Start swinging the ball back and forth bouncing
it off the wall in the horizontal plane or at waist
2. Make sure you keep you elbow in so the movement is
initiated by your core.
3. Begin with a slow movement pattern and then increase
the speed of the ball bouncing off the wall. The rope
should be at full length while performing this exercise.
4. Perform this exercise up to 10 seconds with 1 minute
Note: Grip the rope and circle it around your hands for
a better grasp. The quicker you move backward and
forward with the ball the lower your core will become to
counter act the force of the ball pulling you forward.
The ball swing is a demanding exercise at first, but you
will develop a tempo or rhythm. Just get in the rhythm
of bouncing the ball off the wall and you will get
better and better at this.
(For Lower Abs)
One of the most interesting and powerful abdominal
exercises is the reverse crunch that uses a pole or a
stationary object such as a smith machine as support.
Hey - This may be one of the reasons pole dancers are so
fit (to say the least!). Note: Swiss ball required (you
can do this from a workout bench to begin with)
This is a more challenging exercise than the Reverse
Crunch using the bench. The Swiss ball introduces a
stability challenge, so please be careful of your
surroundings and make sure you check your Swiss ball for
damage before you begin this exercise.
Lie on a Swiss ball with your back, scapula (shoulder
blades), and sacrum (tailbone) pressed against it. Keep
your legs together and flex them to 90 degrees or
perpendicular to the floor. Hold firmly to a platform or
stationary object to anchor the upper body.
1. Slowly contract the lower abdominal region by pulling
the pelvis up toward the rib cage. Continue to pull the
pelvis toward the rib cage until the abdominals are
fully contracted and the hips are rolled up slightly off
the Swiss ball.
2. Slowly lower the trunk and pelvis to the starting
3. Repeat for the prescribed number of reps
