Good ab exercises for Intermediate workouts.



As well as providing an encyclopedia of all good ab exercises our aim is also to provide a complete training guide for ab development.

With that in mind here we have compiled a selection of ab workouts with video guides for anyone who is reasonably fit and has already done our basic workouts for at least a month. Once you begin to find these workouts to easy you should move onto our advanced ones.

If you prefer you can of course devise your own ab workouts from our comprehensive list of stomach muscle exercises but if you do so remember to move onto more demanding ones once you find them easy.

To get the most from your workouts you should also include cardiovascular exercises, the right diet and resistance training to reduce belly fat and maintain muscle.
