If there is one thing that every trainee in the gym does every single time, or to be more precise what everybody wants to achieve, it must be ABS! I won’t even tell you, how every time when somebody approaches me after a workout and says “ I will do some crunches for my abs”, I am about to get the gun, out of my pocket and shoot myself! 😉

There is nothing wrong with doing exercises for your abs, but the problem is that your goal is wrong! I won’t pay special attention to the myths about a strong, defined six pack, as I already did this HERE( 5 Myths That Are Sabotaging Your Six Pack Progress).

And of course, I rarely did the annoying once. Lucky me, after some time in the gym and in a result of some pain here and there, I decided to learn more and I realized that core exercises are really important and picking the right once is twice as important!

And because as always I am really talkative, let me move on to the meaningful part!
