3 Exercise Core Killer – No Crunch Core Workout

athleanx.com for MORE CORE WORKOUTS! Most trainers recommend ab workouts to strengthen your core, and do so with nothing but crunches and other core workout staples. The problem is, to effectively train the core you actually don’t want to do just crunches. You need to work the stability of the lower back, obliques, hips, glutes and abs in order to completely train the core. Then and only then can you expect to have a foundation of core stability in place that you can work on developing a solid six pack on. Make sense? Well, in order to do that…to develop a set of impressive six pack abs you need to know the difference between ab strength and ab stability. We have already discussed the need for ab stability through plank type exercises, however in order to build ab strength you need to incorporate exercises that require you to overcome the inertia or sticking point of the muscle. Examples of these type of core exercises are Hanging leg raises (for the abs and obliques) Hanging knee raises (slightly easier but still for the abs and obliques) Reverse Crunches on a decline bench (lower abs exercise) Pairing these up with an effective oblique and core stability program allows you to get the best of both worlds. A strong core and a set of six pack abs. All of course providing you’re watching what you’re eating and keeping your nutrition in check. But that goes without saying at this point. For a complete program that already spells out for you exactly what core exercises you

    Hey Jeff, when’s the most effective time to train your abs. Early morning after breakfast or in the evening, or would you recommend empty stomach abs in the morning?. Also how often should abs be trained in a week? cheers

    I’m 5″6 female who weighs 117 lbs. I’m apparently under weight and have a boyish body. I really want to pack muscle. I keep comparing both your Athlean-X for guys and women, I noticed that the male’s version helps build heavy muscle. The women’s version concentrates on the BUTT and LEGS which I love yet you would loose weight along the way. I really want to put on 10lbs of overall muscle and have thick legsl!!!!!! Please, pretty please HELP! I want to try your program but I just can’t decide.

  8. Pretty Changuita says:

    I would like my boyfriend to try your Athlean-X workout but he has minor scoliosis. The doctor says he needs to strengthen his back but doing simple back exercises is painful for him. He is not overweight, he jogs for an hour 3x a week. Do you think your Athlean-X program is safe for him?What other exercises do you recommend giving your area of expertise. His ultimate goal is to build strength and stamina. Thanks.

    Nutrition and go by these videos he uploaded. First get your nutrition in order by eating right. He has some awesome nutrition videos to go by. Don’t worry, I’m not downing you in any way. I’m much larger than you, but you beat me in height. Sad that I am 20yrs old, 5’6” in height and 215 pounds. My stats are weak but gaining pretty fast. Well anyway, Jeff will help you to get buff.. Just remember you will not be steroid buff, but a regular buff. Good luck to you.

    What about training through or around an injury? I’m currently dealing with a shoulder rotater cuff injury, and it makes me nuts about what to do to help it heal faster and stronger. thx.

    I’m hearing a lot of talk in the nutrition store of a supplement called HGH (sometropin). Seeing as more and more people are taking it, what are your thoughts on HGH as a supplement in one’s diet?

  17. jdstone29 says:

    I’m pretty sure you meant question, as a comment can’t be answered.

  18. wardyboy26 says:

    compound movements: squats, bench press, shoulder press, lat pull downs, dips.
    3x a week, at least 1 day rest in between workouts. take a weight gainer with creatine. NO CARDIO.

  19. EvilCain138 says:

    Great stuff. I’m going to try this out tomorrow. Your workout’s always give me that good feeling I’m getting somewhere.

  22. hey jeff you have done loads of informative videos on nutrition, what about a video on the most nutritious alcohol? I know guinness isnt meant to be dat bad, something like 140 cals per pint.

  23. milleniumbass says:

    Jeff a lot of your videos are based around burning fat and preserving muscle, how about a circuit or even 2 or 3 that will help the guys who are naturaly very skinny (ectomorph) cause im sure these guys dont really need to loose fat in there workouts and simply want to put on sheer mass, a circuit or some kind of workout would be a great help

    thanks for the videos, keep them coming!!

  24. milleniumbass says:

    jeff already has a video for that, search for the double X destroyer video
