Kari Pearce CrossFit Ab Workout

If you’ve ever seen a CrossFit athlete compete, it’s truly inspiring to see how incredibly strong they are. So when six-time CrossFit Games athlete Kari Pearce wanted to share a CrossFit ab workout, we couldn’t wait to try it! This workout features five of her “favorite abs” and is equipment free, so you can do them at home, the gym, or while traveling.

CrossFit includes many gymnastics-based moves, and as a professional athlete and trainer with 18 years of experience as an elite gymnast, Pearce said both gymnasts and CrossFitters can use these five moves in their training. While these are bodyweight-only exercises, that doesn’t mean they aren’t intense. “They will challenge your abs in a way you’ve never felt before, no matter what level you are at,” Pearce told POPSUGAR. These dynamic exercises target your deep stabilizing core muscles and your obliques, as well as your hip flexors, glutes, shoulders, chest and triceps.

And remember that every little bit adds up, Pearce said. So many people say they are too tired to exercise or don’t have time, but the workout below only takes 10 minutes. “Next time you don’t feel like working out, just start, and I promise you won’t regret it,” she said.
