Ab Exercises on a Weight Bench

Challenge Your Abs and Work on the Weight Bench

Challenge Your Abs and Work on the Weight Bench

You're probably familiar with doing ab exercises on the floor, an exercise ball, or even on a BOSU, but have you ever made use of the weight bench? Rather than moving to a floor to complete your crunches, try these exercises in between sets of arm, chest, and back work using the bench — you're already there, make use of it.

Expert Crunch trainer Livia Jenvey offers up these five exercises that target all the major muscle groups in your abdomen: the transverse muscles that wrap all the way around the trunk of your body, the obliques or muscles on the side of your abdomen, and the rectus muscles, which run down the center of your belly and are responsible for creating your six-pack.
