My top 4 bodybuilding ab exercises


The Deadlift


But that’s a back exercise isn’t it I hear you say. Well among other things yes it is a back exercise but it helps to build a rock solid core and releases huge amounts of the hormones testosterone and growth hormone helping you grow bigger and stronger. Make sure you perform a Deadlift with perfect form.

There are many different varieties of the Deadlift, try them all and use different pieces of equipments don’t just stick to the Barbell (unless you need to use very heavy weights).


The barbell or ab wheel roll out


This is a killer when performed correctly. Make sure you control the movement and don’t let your hips sag when at full extension.




 The Hanging leg raise


Have you seen the abs on international gymnasts? They have some of the strongest cores pound for pound out of any elite exercise and they first have to master the hanging leg raise to help them achieve a great core.






To torch your abs you have to engage the transverse abdominal, the plank is one of the best exercises to target this area.  Start off by holding the plank for 30 seconds and build  up over time. Eventually you should perform a plank on a Swiss ball to really ramp up the intensity.



There you have it, some of my favourite bodybuilding abs exercises. Please remember that these exercises must be used in-conjunction with a proper periodised training routine and you have to absolutely be following a clean diet. To see your abs most people have to get below 10% body fat and this not easy it takes dedication and hard work. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have just leave me a comment below.

Perform these ab exercises as part of your weekly workout routine 3 times per week to build a rock solid chiseled core.
