The 8 best core workouts to build stronger abs and boost your balance without weights

1. RUSSIAN TWISTS

Place your feet in front of you and sit down on the ground. Keep your hands close to your chest and your arms up at shoulder height. Turn your upper body to the right, then back to the middle, and then to the left.

2. CRUNCHES

On the floor, lie on your back (supine) with your knees bent and your feet flat. Put your fingers behind your head or across your chest. To turn your body toward your knees, tighten your abs.

3. DEADBUGS

Lay on your back (supine) on a bed and lift your arms and legs straight up out of the ground. Keep your back straight and your abs tight. Then slowly extend one leg while holding the other arm high.

4. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS

Start in a high plank or press-up position with your shoulders over your arms and your core tight. Your body should be in a straight line from your shoulders to your feet, going down your back.

5. SPIDERMAN PLANK

To begin, do a high plank or press-up with your shoulders over your arms and your core tight. Your body should be in a straight line from your shoulders to your hips to your feet.

6. PLANK

Lay on your elbows and toes with your shoulders back and your core tight. Your body should be in a straight line from your shoulders to your feet, with your hips in line with your shoulders.

7. LYING LEG RAISES

As you lay on your back, put your hands by your sides to help you. Keep your abs and core tight as you lift your legs off the ground. Squeezing your abs will help you slowly raise your legs 90 degrees.

8. SEATED LEG TUCKS

Place your feet on the floor or the edge of a table and raise your legs in front of you. If you need to, use your hands to help you stay straight and flat on your back.
