Bikinis and Board Shorts: Get Your Summer Abs Ready

Summer is a little over a month away, so if you haven’t already, now is a good time to start working on your abs. Before we get into exercises you can do to strengthen abs, it’s important to know diet trumps exercise when trying to get a six pack. While working out and strengthening ab muscles will make them larger, if you eat poorly and accumulate belly fat than it won’t matter how many ab exercises you do.

One of the great things about StrongBoard Balance is it forces your core muscles to contract in every position. Having to balance on a surface that never stabilizes engages all those abdominals – you tone, and tighten while burning calories.

A great way to directly work on your core is through the full plank. Check out the video here:

Another great way to engage your core is the reverse plank:

Finally, we have an ab workout you can do with a partner (or by yourself):
