Hi, I'm Chris with Life Fit personal training out of Kansas City. Today, I'm going to show you two compound abdominal exercises. The first is called a plank walk. You're going to go down to a plank position on a mat. You'll go to your forearms and your toes, keep your abs really tight and your back really straight and then you're going to crawl, basically taking about two or three steps to the left and then you're going to crawl back to the right keeping the abdominals really tight and you'll do about six to ten reps. The next exercise is called a kettlebell swing. For a kettlebell swing, you can use a dumbbell also if you don't have a kettlebell but you're going to take the kettlebell between your legs and you're going to drop down in a squat position and then stand and extend your hips and swing the kettlebell in front of your body, really focusing on the core. There's a lot of muscle groups being trained right here, but you want to make sure that your focus is on the core and especially when you squat down and bend forward that your core is tight to protect your lower back. And you'll do 15 to 20 reps on the kettlebell swing and those are two great compound abdominal exercises.
