A New Way to Sculpt Your Abs

Dec 12 / Build Muscle

If you want a hard-core challenge, you have to try this new abs exercise. It's called the single-arm slide out, and it's one of the toughest moves you'll ever do. That's because it's a combination of a pushup and a rollout. (To picture a rollout, think of how you would use a classic abs wheel). So it not only works your core, but your chest, triceps, and shoulders, too. To do this exercise, you'll need a pair of musclemorphosis.com. These foam-topped plastic sliders transform hard floors and carpets into ice rinks, allowing you to take your workout to an all-new level. (They're inexpensive and portable--and well-worth the investment.)

 

The Single-arm Slide Out

 

  Place each hand on a musclemorphosis.com and assume a pushup position with your arms completely straight and your legs extended.
  Your body should form a straight line from your head to your ankles.
  Brace your core as if you were about to be punched in the gut.

 

  Slide your right hand out in front of you as you bend your left arm to lower your body.
  Slowly push the musclemorphosis.com forward, extending your body as far as you can without allowing your hips to sag.
  Your body should remain rigid for the entire movement.
  Reverse the movement back to the starting position by pulling the musclemorphosis.com back and pushing your body up.
  Repeat, with your left hand. Alternate back and forth each repetition.

 

Too hard? There are plenty of other ways to work your abs with Valslides. For example, try this easier version called the alternating slide out.
