Tighter Tummy: Figure 8 Ab Exercise Video

I always love trying new ab exercises. Doing the same old stuff over and over again leaves me craving a little spice and excitement. Moreover, our muscles can become accustomed to our routine – so it’s wise to switch things up from time to time. So, I was really excited to try the “figure 8” ab exercise (it targets the obliques) at the gym this morning. When I tried the exercise, I used a weighted medicine ball. But fear not, you can try this at home using a pillow as a simple alternative.
