Effectively strengthen and form your abs.
Let’s talk about Ab Exercises. That’s why you came to this site after all, right? Abdominal exercises are the way you go about making your abs stronger and more distinguished. There are many places that claim to have the best and only ab exercises. They claim that if you do these exercises or use this machine or take this pill, that you will get grand results quickly. Most of that is just marketing and the results never live up to the hype. Below you will find some time-tested methods that have incomparable results.
On this page you will find some of the obvious and classic ab exercises. But what else would you expect? These are the most famous and widely used because they WORK. It may not be as quickly as you would prefer, but there is no doubt that if you get into the habit of doing these exercises regularly, you will get a firm stomach. But just be sure that you lose the fat the is covering your abdominal muscles.
Ab Muscle Workouts
Most ab exercises can give and add muscle mass to your abdominal area. But not every exercise can tone your stomach and give you a six-pack. There are some exercises that are better than others at forming and shaping your abdominal muscles to what you want them to look like. These exercises will strengthen your core ab muscles and give you better conditioning for your abdominal muscles.
Remember the importance of regular breathing as you go through your abs exercise routine. Also remember to do these abdominal exercises in reps and sets. It is more effective if you do fewer repetitions at a time, divided into sets, than to just try and do as many as you can at once. You will find that you are able to do more reps if you break it into sets, than if you don’t.
These ab exercises focus on building and strengthening your core muscles. These shouldn’t be done occasionally. You will have to make time in your weekly schedule for these and do them on a regular basis. It’s easy to want to shrug them off for another day, but in doing that you will be robbing yourself of the benefits of these exercises. So, make the time and make the effort.
Stand firmly with feet shoulder-width apart.
Twist to the left and hold for a couple of seconds. Tighten your ab muscles while you twist.
Twist to the right and hold.
Return to starting position then repeat 10-12 reps, 2-3 sets.
Don’t forget to break these exercises into sets and reps! You shouldn’t take the approach that you should just do as many as you can and then stop. By breaking them up into sets of repetitions you will be able to do more overall and get more of a benefit from the exercises. It is about conditioning your muscles to be able to do more and more reps each time you exercise, not just doing what you are capable of at that point. You need to keep pushing yourself past your current limits. That is how you build muscle and strength.
