If you really want to have a set of 8-pack abdominal muscles, your core routines should be more difficult than just falling down in the corner of the gym and falling into oblivion. Much more work (and better eating habits) will be invested in building the middle sections that you see in social media and fitness programs – and that starts with being smarter about the way you spend your core sessions.

This special circuitry that forces him to use his balance and concentration as well as his strength is a great alternative to less focused abdominal movements. "This is about anti-extensions," says Samuel. "This band wants to pull you out of your hollow body, it's also one-sided, so both sides of your core have to fire in different ways."
To complete the circuit, you will need a resistance band and an anchor to attach it like a squat rack. If you do not already have one, check out this set of WODFitters.
