Morris Chestnut Workout
The exercises he does target abdominals and obliques while adding that deep, cut, cobblestone look. We incorporated a mix of crunches, planks, lifts, and raises. Isolation movements like kneeling cable crunches hit the rectus abdominus while isometric exercises like planks targeted both his abs and back.
- KNEELING CABLE CRUNCHES
Kneel below a high pulley with the rope attached. Grab the rope overhead and then bring your hands toward your face by flexing your hips slightly, which will arch your back a bit. This is the starting position. Keep your hips stationary as you exhale and contract your abs, pulling your shoulders toward your knees. Once your elbows reach the middle of your thighs, hold that position for a moment. Inhale and slowly return to the starting position. Repeat the same motion for each rep. Always keep your core tight.
Assume a push-up position but with your forearms, rather than your palms, on the ground. Your whole body should be parallel to the floor and create a straight line from head to toe. Keep your back flat and your elbows directly under your shoulders. Keep your core tight. Hold this position for one minute.
- LEG LIFTS
Lie flat on your back with your hand’s palms down on the floor. Lift both legs 6 inches off the ground and hold for 45 seconds. That’s one rep.
- KNEE RAISES
Position your back against the pad of a dip machine, with your forearms on the armrest. Lift your legs by bending your knees and bringing them up to your chest. Inhale and exhale while executing each repetition.
