Your intermediate ab circuit is here. Intensity will increase, building from our original Beginners Gym-Free Abs article and there are some new exercises added. As before, you can perform these core exercises at your local park, back garden and away from the gym.
This article is one of three to be posted with workout ideas to really target your core, build ab definition and burn fat at the same time. The idea behind the three articles is that they require little to no equipment and space therefore being able to be completed anytime anywhere.
A plyometric box is a great way to make a whole host of exercises more strenuous and higher intensity. You can advance a plyometric box workout by incorporating a weight, such as a kettlebell. This can make exercise harder and useful for engaging your core, as your body has to stabilise the extra weight.
The kettlebell is a hugely universal piece of fitness equipment, where the mobility and diversity makes it perfect for almost anyone. It is particularly useful to take outdoors or on holiday, as there is no need for any other equipment and the rugged nature of a good kettlebell means it doesn’t matter if you throw it around or get it dirty!
Using the RIP trainer is like having your own portable cable machine, but with more diversity. With the varying levels of resistance cords and a karabiner to attach to almost anything it’s another great piece of equipment to take with you into the park and get an awesome workout done.
With all people in search of their ‘beach body’ and many wanting to reveal their chiselled abdominal muscles in time for the summer season it’s no wonder why there are always new exciting workouts being devised to target this area.

However, to feel a real burn, there are specific abdominal exercises that will bring out your abs, tone up your obliques and strength your core.
