The Best Home Abs Workout

Sometimes a good home workout is all you need. If you're feeling like you are preferring to do your training at home, we totally get it! No people to wait around for when using machines, no worry of lockdowns, no feeling self-conscious. If you're not sure whether you can get results at home, we assure you, you CAN!

Enjoy this workout that will SET YOUR ABS ON FIRE! All you need is a resistance band. These may seem like small movements but executed properly, you will feel the burn time and time again. Incorporate these moves as a stand-alone session or part of a bigger workout. If popping obliques is your goal, you'll want to add these moves to your exercise library stat!

 

1. Woodchop

  1. Step on the resistance band to keep it locked in place

  2. Grabbing the band with two hands, imagine you're doing a woodchop by bringing it out and up

  3. Keeping control on the band the whole time

  4. 10 repetitions each way

Adrenal Switch by Switch Nutrition 

This is the ultimate wind-down to set you up for a relaxing night. Recovery is arguably the hardest thing to achieve - at least for us Type-A personalities! It'll be easier to force yourself to take some chill time when you have Adrenal Switch on your side.
