Ab Circuit #1

RPE Scale: 6-7
Duration: 20-25 mins

1a. Kneeling Cable Crunches

Reps: 20-25
Sets: 4-5

Part one of a giant-set: Make sure you are using a weight heavy enough to require full ab contraction and control. Go slow in both directions of the movement.

1b. Hanging Leg Raises

Reps: 15-20
Sets: 4-5

Part two of a giant-set: You can either do these fully suspended from just your hands holding onto a pull-up bar, or you can use a roman chair if available.

1c. Lying Floor Crunches

Reps: 20-25
Sets: 4-5

Part three of a giant-set: Remember to keep your feet up and reach straight up to the ceiling during the whole movement. Make sure your abs are doing the work.

1d. Front Planks

Reps: 30-60 secs
Sets: 4-5

Part four of a giant-set: You can do these either on your hands, or for an increased difficulty do them on your forearms. Contract those abs and hold yourself as straight as possible for the entire duration.
