Workout Description

Here's a fun ab workout based around the "Frog Crunch" made famous by classic bodybuilder Vince Gironda. You can perform this workout 2-3 times per week, and all you need is an ab wheel or a barbell loaded with 25 pound plates. 

If you use a barbell as an ab roller, make sure the ends are secured with collars.

Perform this circuit 4-5 times through, resting exactly 15 seconds between each exercise. 

How to Perform a Frog Crunch

Lie on the floor with your hands behind your head. Now raise your feet approximately 4 inches off the ground. As you crunch up, bring your feet towards your glutes while also flaring your knees out. Make sure to keep your feet together.

At the contraction of this crunch, you should almost look like you were sitting Indian-style.
