Professional volleyball player and fashion model, Gabrielle Reece gives periodic fitness and exercise tips on Yahoo! Health. Most recently she demonstrated a great workout consisting of 12 exercises that target the abs and core. Gabrielle explains the difference between core muscles and abdominal muscles,
“Let’s break down what your abs and your core consist of. Your core muscles extend from under your neck line all the way down to the mid-part of your thigh. Seriously, they are not just the muscles between your chest and bikini line. Those are your abs.”
She then made sure to point out that doing these 12 exercises is not the whole solution but you have to do cardio and have proper nutrition also:
“Keep in mind that these moves alone will not flatten and strengthen your belly without proper nutrition and cardiovascular exercise. A lot of us have abdominal muscles that are lurking below the surface of extra body fat we need to lose. So, it is imperative to attack this from all sides: smart exercise, proper nutrition, and minimizing stress.”
The 12 exercises are:
1. Standing Ballet Side Crunch
2. Standing Knee Front Crunch
3. Standing Elbow to Cross Knee Crunch
4. The Plank
6. Good Old-Fashioned Sit-Ups
7. Leg Raises
8. Side Oblique Crunch
9. Arms Straight Overhead Bend
10. One Leg Touch Crunch
11. Open Leg Pulse
12. Swivel Heel TouchCelebrity Fitness, Gabrielle Reece
