Best 4 Dumbbell Exercises for Abdominals

Instead of old-fashioned bodyweight abs exercises, dumbbell core exercises allow you to quickly and easily add resistance to movements while unlocking a different array of angles and planes for better core activation. Take your core training to the next level and sculpt a six-pack by adding these eight dumbbell exercises to your abs routine.

1 -Weighted Crunch

Lie down on your back on a bench and hold a dumbbell on top of your chest.

Raise your upper body until your shoulder blades no longer touch the bench and lower yourself back down after a short pause.

To avoid pulling your neck with your hands, look straight up instead of looking at your knees.

Use these combined compound moves to reveal your abs in double-quick time.

2 -Suitcase deadlift to sumo deadlift

Today you’ll start with a core-burning double act. Squat as far as you can, keeping your back straight; pause for 2sec and stand back up. Now step out so your feet are twice shoulder width and lower the dumbbells between your legs. Get up; repeat.

3 -Dumbbell hip raise and floor press

Aim for a really strong contraction in your glutes to seriously amp up your metabolism. With knees bent and feet flat, drive through your heels to raise your hips and press the weights. Hold for 2sec; return. Exhale sharply at the top to work those abs.

4 -Weighted Leg Raise

Lie down with your back on the bench, hands gripping the sides of it and hold a dumbbell between your feet.

Raise your legs up until they are perpendicular to the floor and lower them back after a short pause.
