Unique Abdominal Exercises That Work Like Magic! (Video Article)
By David Grisaffi

You have Squatted, Crunched and Thrusted to obtain remarkable abs but something’s amiss. Don’t lose hope if none of your previous workout routines hasn’t helped you with your abdominal goals. We have found the best and most unique abdominal exercises that will melt away the fat and help you get perfectly sculpted abdomen.

Each of these abdominal exercises focuses on one of the three major planes of movement - sagittal, frontal and transverse giving you a complete abdominal workout. While men will most definitely benefit from these abdominal exercises, these are ideal for women too. So all you girls and boys out there get ready for some curling, kicking and twisting – almost literally!

List of Unique Abdominal Exercises:

Crocodile Walk
Now you are thinking “what is this about”? Well I use it with my wrestling team and clients who are really trying to get their entire body involved in an exercise. This really burns the calories too and you will begin to sweat almost immediately. This is your nervous system on high gear.

Assume a push up position with your arms next to your body, head in neutral position with the spine.

1. Contract the abdominals and slowly start crawling forward left arm and right leg moves together. Then alternate to the right arm and left leg.
Keep neutral posture at all times. No bowing of the back, no head up etc
2. Crawl in this fashion for 10 to 15 gait cycles.
3. Repeat 3-5 times.

Tornado Ball Horizontal Wood Chop
Note: You will need a tornado ball 2-6 pounds

Assume a standing position with good neutral posture with feet a little wider then shoulder width and in a good athletic stance about 1 foot from a solid wall. Grasp the rope of a Tornado ball with both hands.

1. Inhale and draw you belly button in to stabilize your spine. Start swinging the ball back and forth bouncing it off the wall in the horizontal plane or at waist level.
2. Make sure you keep you elbow in so the movement is initiated by your core.
3. Begin with a slow movement pattern and then increase the speed of the ball bouncing off the wall. The rope should be at full length while performing this exercise.
4. Perform this exercise up to 10 seconds with 1 minute rest periods

Note: Grip the rope and circle it around your hands for a better grasp. The quicker you move backward and forward with the ball the lower your core will become to counter act the force of the ball pulling you forward. The ball swing is a demanding exercise at first, but you will develop a tempo or rhythm. Just get in the rhythm of bouncing the ball off the wall and you will get better and better at this.

Reverse Crunches
(For Lower Abs)

One of the most interesting and powerful abdominal exercises is the reverse crunch that uses a pole or a stationary object such as a smith machine as support. Hey - This may be one of the reasons pole dancers are so fit (to say the least!). Note: Swiss ball required (you can do this from a workout bench to begin with)

This is a more challenging exercise than the Reverse Crunch using the bench. The Swiss ball introduces a stability challenge, so please be careful of your surroundings and make sure you check your Swiss ball for damage before you begin this exercise.

Lie on a Swiss ball with your back, scapula (shoulder blades), and sacrum (tailbone) pressed against it. Keep your legs together and flex them to 90 degrees or perpendicular to the floor. Hold firmly to a platform or stationary object to anchor the upper body.

1. Slowly contract the lower abdominal region by pulling the pelvis up toward the rib cage. Continue to pull the pelvis toward the rib cage until the abdominals are fully contracted and the hips are rolled up slightly off the Swiss ball.
2. Slowly lower the trunk and pelvis to the starting position.
3. Repeat for the prescribed number of reps

Why will these Abdominal Exercises work?

Not only are the above mentioned abdominal exercises unique and enjoyable, they work on your abs in three ways:
* Melts away your belly fat
* Strengthens your core and builds muscles
* Boosts your metabolism
Make these abdominal exercises a part of your daily workout regime and you will soon be flaunting your six pack abs and firm belly to the world.
