4 Dance-Inspired Ab Moves
You don’t always need crunches and planks to get a core burn! Do these four moves below for three rounds to light up your abs from every angle. Don’t be afraid to add your own flare and just have fun with it!
Torches your core!Begin standing with feet about hip-width apart and hands on the hips, spine neutral. Push the chest forward like there’s a string pulling it front as you slightly arch your back. Then, push the chest to the right side. Next, pull the belly in toward the spine, slightly rounding the back. Finish by pushing the chest to the left side. Continue moving in a fluid circle, contracting your core the entire time. Make sure your hips stay steady. Do for 30 seconds, then switch directions.
Works your core, especially the obliques!Begin standing with feet about hip-width apart and hands on the hips, spine neutral. Push the hips forward like there’s a string pulling your pelvis front as you slightly round your back. Then, push the hips to the right side. Next, push the hips back, slightly arching the back. Finish by pushing the hips to the left side. Continue moving in a fluid circle, contracting your core the entire time. Make sure your upper body stays steady. Do for 30 seconds, then switch directions.
Targets your midsection and sculpts your obliques!Begin standing with feet together. Bring arms up to shoulder height, bending the elbows so your fists are at your collarbone. Lightly jump up as you twist your hips to the right and land with bent knees. Immediately hop back up, twisting your hips to the left and landing with bent knees. Continue alternating. Do for 30 seconds.
Grapevine with Knee Tap
Works your legs, arms, and of course, your core!Begin standing. Step out to the right with your right foot. Then step your left foot behind your right. Next, step you right foot out a little wider than hip-width. Tap your left toe out to the side. That’s your grapevine — feel free to add some bounce to it! Then, pull your left knee in and twist your torso to tap your right elbow to your knee. Do two knee-to-elbow twists. Then do the grapevine to the left and twists to the right. Continue alternating. Do for 30 seconds.
