Don't just work the muscles you can see in the mirror—to build a strong, symmetrical midsection, pair two opposing moves into one powerful superset! In this bodyweight circuit from fitness expert Jessica Smith, every effective abs exercise is matched up with balancing back move. This not only is a smart training strategy for sculpting a rock-solid core, it also helps prevent back pain and promotes perfect posture.
How it works: Up to four days a week, do these moves after a cardio session, or add them into your existing strength routine. Do 1 set of each exercise in the first pair back to back, and then repeat both moves 2 more times (3x total) before moving on to the next duo. Repeat this pattern until you've done 3 sets of each pair.
