It’s officially BIKINI SEASON! Are you ready to bare your belly? Whether you’re looking sculpted or just getting started, IFBB Pro Juliana Daniell has some exercises to kick up your training intensity and build beautiful bikini abs!
This week, Juliana demonstrates the CABLE CRUNCH. If you haven’t tried this exercise yourself, you’ve definitely seen it done by someone else. This oldie but goodie is a staple for strengthening the upper and lower abdominals.
This week, Juliana demonstrates the SWISS BALL PIKE. In my book, this is abdominal training at it’s best. The Swiss Ball Pike activates the upper and lower abs as well as the obliques—with minimal recruitment from the hip flexors and lower back.
This week, Juliana demonstrates the SIDE DOUBLE CRUNCH—a simple, but not easy, exercise that works the rectus abdominis one side at a time as well as the obliques and serratus.
This week, Juliana demonstrates CABLE LEG PULL-INS—a challenging but effective exercise targeting the lower abdominals. As you’ve probably experienced, training the lower abdominals can be difficult, especially when adding resistance.
This week, Juliana demonstrates RESISTANCE BAND SIT-UPS—an amped up version of a basic abdominal exercise. By adding the resistance band to the typical sit-up, you can feel the exercise deep in the muscle, explained Juliana.
