The No-Situp Ab Workout

Build a rock-solid core and ripped abs with these alternatives.

1. Single-arm Weighted Carries

The single-arm weighted carry is a go-to exercise, every workout. It's very simple to perform and very beneficial in many ways. Simply grab a weight in one hand and start walking.

Some tips to quality weighted carries are:

1. Maintain good posture. Chest up, eyes up, and shoulders back. Be sure to not hunch or round the shoulders or upper back.
2. Brace Your Core. To do this, flex your core like someone is going to punch you in the stomach. This immediately will give you the feeling of creating a brace.
3. Make a fist with your free hand. This will create more full body tension, which will make this more of a full-body exercise.

Weighted single-arm carries can be done with dumbbells, kettlebells, standard barbells, and more.
