Check Out 35 of Our Favorite Bodyweight Ab Exercises to Chisel Your Core

While it's true that decreasing belly fat comes down to your diet, if you want to reveal a chiseled core, you'll have to also be consistent with your workouts and challenge your abs. The good news? You don't need equipment to make that happen! These are some of the best bodyweight moves you can do pretty much anywhere. Choose five or more to create your own core-carving routine.

A quick note: even if you don't get your abs to show, there are still tons of benefits to having a strong core: it can prevent back pain, stabilize your spine, and help you perform explosive movements like sprinting and jumping, not to mention everyday movements like squatting down and lifting heavy objects. So even if your goal isn't aesthetics, a strong core is still essential.
