Lying on the floor, place your arms flat out beside your body on the ground. After bending your knees in the air, cross your ankles. Using the muscles in your legs and abdominal region, push your legs up towards the ceiling. Your hips need to lift at least a few inches from the ground. Try to use your stomach muscles more than your hips.
Increasing the intensity of your workout gives you better results in less time. Think of it this way. Would you lift a small amount of weight 100 times if you were trying to increase your arm muscle size? Of course not. You would lift heavy weights in short sessions. You should apply the same strategy to your abs workouts.
Remember, to get that six pack of abs one needs to continue going harder at it. Doing the same workout for abs repeatedly will end in a plateau. One needs to follow FIT to stay fit. That is, increasing frequency, intensity, and time of the exercises.
Crunches. This is one of the most popular exercises for the abs. To do this, simply lie down on the floor, place your arms in front of your chest, and bend your knees up. Raise your torso towards the knees by contracting your abdominal muscles. Exhale through your mouth as you begin lifting your back off the floor. Pause for a while then exhale the last of the air as you flex your abdomen. Proper breathing and flexing produce excellent results for your abdominals. Slowly lower your back down, inhaling through your nose and not letting your head touch the floor. Repeat.
When you are moving your legs during the workout when using the equipment, the pelvis could be stabilized by the abs. When your legs are moving the abdominal muscles will help with rotating the pelvis and this will help prevent back ache.
What’s the fastest way of finding what exercise works for you? Use variety. Use different kinds of exercises and see which ones yield results. A routine that has a lot of variety will do just the trick. What many people do is start from exercises that can be done at home. These are often exercises that simple and easy to perform but target different ab muscles. For this to work, you must target the core ab muscles. A good example is the Pilates, which are especially effective for women. The basic Pilates workouts for abs are able to target ab muscles better than other normal exercises that may be done at home and without the help of equipment.
Crunches are another effective abs workout tool for building up the ab muscles using an exercise ball. Remember not to roll because that causes injuries. Continue this exercise with 10 to 16 reps.
I like to say that the body has a short memory. That’s a good thing- it means that you can make a change for the positive, no matter how far gone you think you may be. A fat person Can become thin, and belly that looks like cookie dough Can become sleek and sexy. Yes, it can.
