Get Abs Like a Gymnast (AT HOME!!)

Get ripped abs like a shredded pro athlete here

If you want to get abs like a gymnast you have to train like a gymnast, even at home. It’s not a cliche. The best way to get abs is to perform ab exercises that force you to seal up your body’s natural energy leaks and get your core to fire first. Gymnasts and other athletes know this and have perfected this in all exercises that they do. It’s time for you to start getting your abs to work the right way so you too can have ripped abs that look great in any light.

In this video, I cover the topic of ab muscle firing patterns. If you are going to be your strongest, you need to be sure that your abs and core are able to be fired or contracted first…before any peripheral movement occurs. If you can do this, you are able to accomplish two things. First, you stabilize the spine and trunk so the movement becomes safer to perform. This is especially important on some of the bigger exercises like the deadlift.

Second, this allows the energy and strength that you do develop to be transferred from the lower body up or the upper body down, without dissipation. This is key to moving and functioning like an athlete. In order to get your abs to pop you need to be sure that you can engage them on demand. By practicing the two ab exercises shown here, you’ll be able to start doing that in no time.

The first ab exercise shown is called the pike dip. You want to get in a dip position either using dip bars or the corner of a kitchen counter if you’re doing these ab exercises at home. From here, you keep your arms locked out and simply try to lift your butt and trunk upwards against the force of gravity by contracting your abs.

You may find that you want to bend your arms to help cheat your body up on every rep. Resist the urge and keep the intensity on the abs themselves.

The next exercise is the dip bar variation of the popular L-sit ab exercise. Here you are trying to teach your body to be strong and stabile while initiating and holding a strong ab contraction. You should look to hold the l sit position for up to 30 seconds if you are able. Here again, you can do this ab exercise at home to get abs by using the corner of a kitchen counter.
