While many people have weight-loss and calorie goals, developing strong abs and core is important for your daily function. Here are some effective calorie-burning exercises that you can use to get toned abs and a powerful core.

Bear Crawl

Get down on your hands and knees and with your hands directly beneath your shoulders. Lift your knees off the ground, tighten your abs, and move forward with your left hand and right foot before moving the opposite hand and foot.


Get a hold of a barbell and add as many weights as you are comfortable with. Push your backside back while only slightly bending your knees as you lower the bar past your knees, making sure to keep your back straight.


While primarily a leg workout, squats will help you to stabilize your core as you maintain the correct form. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart while bending down, moving your torso back as you keep your chest up and your abs taught.
