Every man wants to have toned abs, but few of them have the discipline to exercise. If you’re one of those men, these five easy ab workouts could help you achieve your body goals. You can either do them at home or at the gym. What’s more, doing them will also help strengthen your core.

1. Planks

We’re starting with one of the classic ab workouts: planks. To do them, you should assume the push-up position and bend your elbows at a 90-degree angle. The entire weight of your body should rest on your forearms. If this isn’t challenging enough for you, there are dozens of other ways to do a plank.

2. Flutter Kick

Lie on the floor with your legs stretched and lift your feet slightly above the ground. Your hands should be tucked under your buttocks to provide support for the lower back. Now start kicking your legs up and down one at a time for ten times in a row.

3. Sit-Up and Throw

You’ll need a wall and a medicine ball to do this twist on the classic sit-up ab workouts. Hold the ball tight to your chest while lying down on the floor. Proceed to throw it against the wall while lifting your upper body from the ground. Catch the ball on the rebound and then go back to your starting position.

4. Mountain Climber

Get into the push-up position, but place your hands on the medicine ball instead of the floor. While keeping the other leg stretched, bend one in the knee and push it as close to your chest as you can. Rotate the legs after a few seconds.

5. Seated Knee Tuck

Sit on a bench or a backless chair and stretch your legs in front of you. Hold the medicine ball tight between your feet. Now start moving your torso forward while bending your knees and moving them closer to your chest. Hold there for a few seconds before going back to the initial position.
