Get a Killer Core with Halle Berry's Abs Exercises

Acclaimed actress Halle Berry, known for her youthful appearance at 52, has been hailed as an icon of fitness inspiration. Her athletic prowess, likened to that of a 25-year-old by her trainer, makes her workout regimens a hot topic among fitness enthusiasts. To share her secrets, Berry embarked on a #FitnessFriday video series on Instagram in collaboration with her trainer Peter Lee Thomas, where they reveal the diet and exercise techniques she utilizes to maintain her exceptional physique.

In one of her recent posts, Berry emphasized the importance of a robust core for more than just enviable, chiseled abs. She noted, "I've discovered over the past year that a powerful core underpins every other part of your body. Moreover, if you're performing exercises correctly, your core is always involved," she shared. "That's certainly a double win."

Take a cue from the screenshots below and follow Berry's lead the next time you're in the mood for a serious core boost. (Full disclosure: These moves are not easy. Rather than going all in, it might be better to use them as a source of inspiration and incorporate a couple into your routine to start.)

Bear Crawls with a Bench

Start on all fours facing a bench. Make sure your knees are hovering off the floor before lifting one hand up and placing it on the bench. Repeat the same movement with the other hand and then return to starting position, one hand at a time, to complete a rep.

Side-to-Side Bench Jumps

Place both hands on a bench with both feet on the ground to one side. Then jump over the bench and back to your starting position to complete a rep.

Reverse Bear Crawls with Elevated Knees

Start on all fours facing away from a bench. Make sure your knees are hovering off the floor before lifting one foot onto the bench. Repeat the same motion with the other foot and bring both feet back down one after the other to complete a rep.

Hanging Oblique Twist

Put your arms in the slings attached to a pull-up bar and pull your knees up toward your chest while twisting as if you were trying to reach your elbow with your knee. Bring your legs back to your starting position and then repeat the same motion on the other side to complete a rep.

Hanging Leg Lifts

While hanging from a pull-up bar, bring both legs up so they are horizontal to the ground. Make sure they're perfectly straight. Hold the position for a few seconds for that extra burn, and then bring your legs down to complete the rep.

Hanging Knees to Chest

While on a pull-up bar, pull your knees up toward your chest. Hold for a few seconds and release.

Hanging Bicycle Crunches

Think of these as regular bicycle crunches except that you'll be hanging from a pull-up bar. Simply bring one knee up toward your chest then back down, followed by the next. Repeat as fast as you can to really fire up your core.

Hanging Windshield Wipers

*Advanced* move alert! Grab a pull-up bar and lift your legs straight up toward the ceiling until your body is in a U-shaped position. From there, swing your legs to one side of your body and then to the other to complete a rep. (Talk about a burnout.)
