Many of you must be thinking that to work your abs, you must do typical exercises for specific abs like sit-ups or sit-ups etc. These abdominal exercises are good for targeting the abs area. However, there are actually some exercises that can benefit your abs more than typical abs workouts.

I will show you three of the best exercises that can indirectly exercise your abs and at the same time exercise your whole body, increasing your metabolism. You will notice that these three exercises that I will show you do not include any specific abs training that targets your abs directly.

The three best indirect abdominal exercises are as follows:

1) Dumbbell Row

The starting position requires you to hold two dumbbells in your hand and go into a push-up position. Stabilize the starting position with both hands on the dumbbell and keep your back straight. Then, while holding the dumbbell, lift the left dumbbell toward your body and use the other hand to stabilize the action. Then slowly bring the dumbbell to the floor and repeat with your other hand. When you are reading this, you will be thinking where the abs work, right? Well, you will work on your abs when you stabilize your action. You will definitely feel your abs kick in with this workout.

2) Barbell front squats

The starting position will be similar to the back squat. First, place the bar in front of your shoulder and stabilize it. Then slowly cross your arms and grasp the bar by placing your hands on the bar. Your elbow should be facing forward rather than down. The starting position may be difficult at first, but once you get used to it, it will be very easy. Then slowly while stabilizing the bar, focus on lowering your butt while keeping your knees bent. Then slowly work your way up to the starting position. Even though this exercise is training your leg muscles, you will feel like you are actually using a lot of stabilizing strength from your abs as well.

3) Leg shifting

This is similar to some break dance move that you have seen elsewhere. First, go to the push-up position and then move your left foot inward so that your knees are below the chest area. Then return to the push-up position. Repeat with another leg. To advance further, you can do a push-up or two on each rep to make it more challenging. You will find that your abs will skyrocket after this workout.

For the best effect, you should do a minimum of 3 sets of 10 reps per workout. Rest time between sets should not exceed 30 seconds.

These are 3 of the best abs exercises that indirectly help develop your abs and also give you a full body workout. Give it a try and I’m sure you will feel the effect.
