The plank is a foundational core exercise that sculpts a more defined stomach while enhancing core stability and strength. Most of your core muscles, including your rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and obliques, are worked during this exercise.
The Russian twist is an excellent dynamic rotating core workout that targets the obliques and helps you define the V-taper on the side of your abs.
Targeting the lower abdominal muscles and hip flexors with the hanging leg raise is a difficult and effective workout. Traditional core exercises don't often give these muscles the attention they require, so I always include them for the best results.
Side planks are a great exercise for working your quadratus lumborum, a deep core stabilizer in your lower back, as well as your oblique muscles.
Traditional ab crunches are combined with rotational and leg movements in bicycle crunches. They concentrate on your entire core area for significant midsection shaping.
