    Medjai saidKnees to elbows, L-pull ups, and bicycles for the lower.
    Swiss ball crunches, situps, and planks for the upper.

    Also GHD situps for everything if you like shredding muscle.


    GHD situps?

    Barbell Squats

    Great for stabilisers, abs and back - I've re-added them into my routine and my core feels much stronger in just a few weeks

    I do a lot of pushups on unstable surfaces, like Medicine balls and Bosu - that helps with the smaller stabilising core muscles.

    Yoga and Pilates fill in the other blanks
