The fab abs workout
1. Leg lifts
The first move for fab abs is a leg raise. But I want you guys to do it with a little twist. Bring your legs up all the way, feet together and keep them streight. Now go slowly lower your legs down. You can hold on to a couch or a chair or anything. Bring them up fast and take it all the way down as slow as you can. For best results you need to do at least 20 reps.
You can partner up with a friend to give you resistance. This is gonna give you some extra resistance for your lower abdominals.
2. Plank twist
Lie down on your tummy, put your elbows on the floor and push your body off the floor to get into a regular plank position. This is the basic plank and it’s easy for beginners. But you guys are not beginners so I want your heels together and drop them over to the right side. Bring them back to the center and drop them over to the left side. This exercise is gonna get the carbs out of your midsection.
Try to keep the butt down, make sure you’re not stick it out too much. You need to do 20 reps for each side.
3. Bicycle Crunches
For the normally bicycle crunch you lie down on your back, but for this exercise you’re gonna sit up. Recline slightly, bring your hands behind your head and then alternate bringing an elbow to the opposite knee. Again, slow is better! And don’t touch the ground with your feet, keep them up in the air, unless you have lower back pain. Do 20 reps for each leg.
When you do resistance workout your muscles do swell. This is what we have done for the fab abs. On the other hand, a cardio workout like running (when you’re sweaty and you’re out of breath) actually bloats you. So cardio is good for losing size, you have to do cardio. But the day you have an event and you want those fab abs you can’t do intense cardio because your body will retain water and you’ll get puffy.
If you do these exercises before you’re going out you’ll feel a difference, but also if you do them consistently every day it would make a difference.
