Hardcore Abs: Value the Valslide

Strengthen your midsection and carve out washboard abs with this challenging move.

Stability training should be a significant component of every abs routine, and few pieces of gear work core stability as effectively as the Valslide—a flat plastic disk that glides easily across smooth surfaces. The Valslide reach takes the concept of ab-wheel rollouts and intensifies it, calling for harder muscle contractions to keep the slides stable when they’re away from your body.

DO IT!
Combined with a clean diet, chiseling your midsection can be as simple as one, two, three.

1. Get Down on the Ground

Start in pushup position with each hand on a Valslide. Keep your core tight and body straight.

2. Slide One Arm At a Time

Brace your core and slide the right Valslide straight out—then bring it back to pushup position. Repeat with the left arm.

3. Burn It Up

Do 3 sets of 8–12 reps (each arm). For the more advanced, try sliding both arms above your head at the same time.
