For those who aim to get envious abs and a flat stomach, the core workout exercises can be very effective. While working out on a reformer can be pretty challenging, for amateurs there are some easy exercises that can be done much easily, without gym equipment. Here are some of those workouts.

Side Plank

The side plank targets various smaller core muscles and is much harder to hold than a regular plank. Starting small with ten to twenty seconds can help.

Hollow-body hold

A part of gymnastics training, this exercise involves bracing the abdominals and creating total-body tension. It improves pull-ups, squats and other full-body movements that are effective in core workouts.

Dead Bug

Though the dead bug position looks pretty easy to pull off, the posture applied is often wrong. To get optimum benefits, it is imperative that one gets the correct posture. The movements in this workout are slow and controlled and the back is kept flush against the ground.
