Crunches might be one of the most popular abdominal exercises, but they are also the one beginner exercise that is usually performed incorrectly. I don’t want this to be you! Today, I want to discuss the top 10 most common abdominal crunch mistakes and exercise tips on how to fix them.
This challenging ab workout delivers ripped core muscles in just 10 minutes a day using only eight exercises. No gym equipment needed. All you need is enough floor space - for the length of your body and a little wider than your body for side-to-side motion.
I created for you a complete guide to abs workouts including a primer on the muscles we’re talking about, the best ab exercises for every region of the abs, and tips that really work for how to get abs.
Even if you have all the enthusiasm in the world and do all the hard work, an 8 pack may just not be in the cards for you. This is because whether you can get that 8 pack or not all comes down to genetics. What I can do is help you determine whether to set your sights on 8 pack abs, 6 pack abs or even 4 pack abs instead, so you can make the best out of whatever Mom and Dad gave you! I’ll show you a quick test you can do to will reveal what your genetic ‘pack potential’ is.
The rectus abdominis is a single muscle group, and it’s not possible to isolate the lower abs from the rest of the abs.

With this in mind I’ve built an ab workout featuring all “lower ab” movements.
