Ivan Nikolov is one Bulgarian bodybuilder who’s a glutton for punishment. In fact, this lower abdominal exercise really should just be labeled as a core exercise that will give you six pack abs within no time. While we all know, or should know that abs are about a low percentage of body fat and having that nutritional program in place, there’s still something to be said for doing specific exercises. The argument could be made (and I believe) that there’s no lower or upper abs, it’s all the core and every exercise works the whole muscle area.
Ivan told me, “Today I asked my friend at the gym to film me doing my favorite abs exercise.”
You cannot have a weak core or abdominals if you are able to do this exercise.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t tried and I’m not sure I’d be able to do this without the weight!
Take a look, it’s cool to watch. I wonder if Ivan was sore the next day?
Just hit the Play button arrow and let it buffer for a second. It will play.
