In our opinion, the best advanced stomach toning exercise is "Pike Raises on the Ab Bench" Now, we know you're probably thinking "Well... I don't have an Ab Bench". Don't stress - here is a simple way you can make one at home... It's easy as 1-2-3 and we guarantee it's an investment that you will NOT regret!

We do both Tuck (bent leg) and Pike (straight leg) raises on our home-made ab bench. The tuck are slightly easier, so we do 12 tuck and follow by immediately doing 12 pike. We aim at doing 4 sets. Do whatever suits you best though, you can start by doing 1 or 2 sets and work your way up to 4 + sets.

Abdominal bench - Tuck Raises (Advanced)

Below is the bent leg (tuck) version of the "Ab Bench Exercise" As we mentioned above, the steeper the bench, the more difficult this exercise becomes.

You can open your legs slightly and put your knees by your ears whilst in the "up" position...

  1. Hop onto your Ab Bench, which has got a yoga mat or 2 towels on it to make it a little softer.
  2. Lie flat on the ab bench.
  3. Raise your feet above the bench as shown in picture 1.
  4. This is the start position.
