We love doing ab workouts. Not for the looks, but because a strong core is essential to support the muscles of your spine. They help you maintain an erect posture (and can help prevent back pain), and they're essential to daily functions like coughing, sneezing, and bowel movements.
We came across Kelsey Wells's bench workout on Instagram, and we're ready to rock our core. It consists of four moves performed as a circuit, and we have a feeling you're going to be reminded of this workout every time you move for a few days.
The Bench Ab Workout
Kelsey said to complete four sets of 10 reps of each exercise. Take no more than one minute of rest in between sets, then repeat for a total of four rounds.
- Leg lift with flutter kicks: 10 reps
- Bicycle crunch: 10 reps
- Reverse crunch: 10 reps
- Side plank dip: 10 reps each side
Be sure to watch the video above to see how Kelsey performs each exercise.
