Abs in a Chair

Get Fit Quick Tip:

Seated Ab Exercise

Not all ab exercises involve a crunch on the floor. Target your abs in chair by performing this exercise super slow and controlled. This ab move strengthens your entire core, as well as your hip and thigh muscles. Form is important however, so be sure your posture is spot on. Begin seated on the front part of your chair with both feet flat on the floor. Sit up tall and place both arms across your chest. From your hips and keeping your back aligned, slowly lean back about 4-6 inches. Pause to break momentum, and then pulling your belly button in toward your spine, move your torso forward until you are sitting up straight again. Start with 10 slow and controlled reps. If you’d like a intermediate move, lean back, pause to un-weight your torso on the back of the chair for one second, then return to your starting position of sitting up tall.


*Consult your physician before performing exercise. This is not for those with low back injury concerns.
