From weighted side planks to dumbbell knee raises, there are lots of ways you can do an abs workout with weights and the benefits are backed by science too. A study in the Journal of Applied Physiology (opens in new tab) found that men who completed a heavy resistance training program increased their resting metabolic rate. 

We know that investing in workout equipment can be pretty expensive which is why it's worth purchasing with your future workouts in mind, rather than opting for lighter weights initially and then having to invest yet again later on. Don't miss out on these savings while they last.
