Getting in shape is one of the most wanted changes anyone could make in their
life. Even when someone is relatively fit, they still envy people with
great flat stomach. Obtaining the super-fit looks is really hard work,
but you can help yourself by doing perfect exercices for abs. Your
abdominal muscles will respond well when doing basic sit ups, but by
stressing the muscles in a more effective way, you can achieve vastly
improved results. To get your abs perfect shape you should use exercise
that isolate the muscles your are trying to improve.
Top Exercises for Abs
1. Bicycle crunches will hit your abs from both sites and they can be done
without any equipment. All you need to do is lay on the floor with your
fingers linked behind your head. As you raise your head to crunch, move
your right elbow to meet the knee of your left leg. Then repeat with
your left elbow meeting your the knee of the opposite leg. Perform this
action alternating right and left and hold the crunch at the top for a
split second to add extra tension to the abs.
2. Sit ups with a medicine ball are an unbelievably powerful exercise. The medicine ball
is heavy and this extra weight is stresses your abs from deep down in
the muscle. Start by laying with your back on the floor and with your
training partner standing at the base of your feet with your knees bent.
With your arms stretched out behind your head and holding the ball on
the floor, raise the ball swiftly so that you sit upright and throw the
ball in to the hands of your partner. Your partner should then gently
throw the medicine ball back to your hands as you are returning to your
flat position. This is one the most difficult exercices for abs, but it
will provide amazing results.
3. Abdominal crunches with an exercise ball are used to really stretch out the abs to gain maximum
effect. By laying with your back over an exercise ball, you can
super-extend your abs so that your back is arched over the ball. This
will work parts of your abdominal muscles that cannot be exercised
through regular sit ups. The larger muscle area your target, the more
your muscles will work and the better your results will be.
You should think about using a mix of all three of these exercises and
rotating them. Even if you do not want to use all three exercises in one
session, you could try each variation on different nights of the week.
