One of the most challenging body parts to train is the abs. In fact, it takes months of regular training to get them toned, defined and strong. There are many exercises you can do, but here are three ab exercises that will help you achieve your goal of a flat stomach.
The best ab workouts are designed to burn the most amount of calories in the shortest amount of time. In fact, a man weighing 185 pounds would be able to burn 86 calories in just 10 minutes. This is a small amount of exercise, but it’s a great way to boost your cardio levels and melt away belly fat.
The best ab exercises are timed, meaning you have to move as fast as possible. For example, Dawn’s version of the v-up is a good one because it requires you to keep your feet off the floor for a few reps. It also targets every inch of your abs.
The best abs workouts include compound moves that engage more than just your abs. These can be performed before or after your workout, or in addition to a cardio routine. You can also incorporate bodyweight moves, which are great for strengthening and toning your back. Bodyweight exercises don’t require any special equipment, which is great if you don’t want to invest in some.
If you are pressed for time, you can perform a simple abs workout in less than 10 minutes. However, you may want to go with a more elaborate routine if you’re looking to tone up and tighten your abdominals. Each of these ab exercises targets different areas of the midsection, so you will be sure to see results.
You may not think about your gut health when you think of a workout, but it plays a huge role in your overall health and weight. Your body’s overall health and wellness depends a lot on how well your gut is functioning, so make sure to eat a healthy diet and add a few probiotic foods into your diet. Adding some kombucha or a Chi Nei Tsang massage can also be helpful.
The best abs workouts include exercises that strengthen your core, improve your balance and increase your overall fitness. Some of the most effective exercises target your obliques and other parts of your abdomen, such as the dead bug.
When you do a plank, make sure to lift your chest off the ground and lean back slightly. You will feel the stretch in your spine and your abs. Try to complete at least four of these exercises in the allotted 10 minutes.
Although there are other types of ab exercises you can do, you should focus on the bodyweight exercises. These work your muscles by pulling them in and squeezing them. They also have the added benefit of being easy on the joints. Plus, they are low-impact, which makes them a great option for those who are recovering from injury.
