Get Washboard Abs In No Time With These 10 Exercises

Washboard abs can be attained by adopting two major undertakings: diet and training. Some people will achieve the rippling midsection look faster than others thanks to their genes, but anyone can strengthen their abdominal muscles with the following ten exercises:

1 – Squats

This is one of the most underrated routines in the history of physical fitness, but any personal trainer or physiologist will tell you that the posture attained by strengthening glutes and quads has an intrinsic effect on the abs. There are two steps: the first involves standing straight with feet lined up with shoulder and arms pointed forward and parallel to the floor, and the second step involves lowering the hips until thighs are parallel to the floor.
