To enjoy the glow of good health, you must exercise”- Gene Tunney. Sitting all day in front of your system is one the important reason for not having a firm tummy along with foods containing high amount of calories and fats. One will mention about the hours they spent in their gym. Doing gym for a few hours and then compensating them with the delicious pastries and cookies won’t get you a firm abs.
John F. Kennedy said,” Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity”. Work out not only helps in keeping our body fit but also makes our minds work in a better way. Work out should not be tiring and exhausting. Rather it should be fun doing it. Until and unless you enjoy doing your workouts you will not be willing to continue with it. There are many of them but what should concern one is which to do and which one not.
Crunches and sit-ups are the very common suggestions that one will get but at the very same time they are needed to be accompanied with some others that will result in toning abs. There are many forms and ways of performing crunches than. For instance, instead of doing normal crunches do the cross-body crunches. Your starting position will be lying down on your back and place your hands behind your head. Now, your body movement will be of a regular crunch but instead of going straight up, bring your right elbow and shoulder towards your left knee. Now slowly lie down and do the same with your left elbow but this time go for the right knee.
One can also do cycle crunches. Posture will be same, the only difference is lift your head with hands behind it and lift your legs too and do cycling in air. Helps you toning your thighs along with abs. Reverse crunch is the other one that helps you reducing the fat in your waist and stomach, resulting in flat tummy and with longer practice it will give you perfect abs.
Planks is the other one which will help you tone your abs and abdominal portion of your body. Taking the position of the push-up is the exact posture of plank. Yes, it won’t be easy doing in the beginning for longer time but with regular practice duration will increase automatically resulting in improvement in endurance. Plank knee pulls is the other formation of plank. In straight arm plank position, bring one knee forward and try to touch your nose to your knee. Complete on one side, then repeat on the other.
Bridge pose is similar to the plank with a very little difference. This is a lower back exercise to make sure compliment the lower abs work. Lie on your back with knees bent, feet flat on the floor. Raise your hip off the ground and so that your body makes a perfect 45 degree angle. Then squeeze your hip cheeks together as tight as you can-hold it.
Twist is the other one for your rescue. Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, your arms out to your sides and your elbows bent. Keeping your feet, head, and hips stationary, quickly twist your upper body from side to side so that your oblique muscles feel the contraction. Move from side to side only as far as your waist will allow you to go. Breathe continuously and contract your abdominal muscles throughout the exercise.
