Your abdominals are made up of several different sections of muscle that make up your whole core and in order to see true progress, the workouts that you are doing must use all of your core muscles, This includes those tricky back muscles.
Here are 8 Ab moves that will allow you to gain a full core workout. You will need a glider or a dish towel for a couple of these moves. Perform each exercise for 30 seconds.
