Floor Wipers Exercise

The abs were not just made to look good - they are an integral part of the core and give us stability during movements where the arms support the weight of the body.

This is exactly why, for this exercise, we are utilizing that exact arm support to not only target the abdominal area, but also strengthen the shoulder & arm musculature.
