Read on how to get six-pack abs in just two weeks.
Squat It Out
Your abdominal muscles form the core of your body. You’ve also got to recognize the functions of your abs, they team up with your back muscles and help you maintain your posture and stabilize your spine. So, work on exercises that employ your entire core. Exercises like squats and dead lifts are a great way to achieve this as your body is challenged and even turns into a fat burning machine.
Ab crunches, they’re the way to go. Lie on a mat with your hands folded across your chest or stretched out behind your head, but do not place both your hands behind your head, this can cause lower back problems. From this position, fold your legs and lift your upper body off the floor, but make sure you don’t lift your entire back off the floor. You should be looking to crunch your abdomens, pause for a second, or two at the crunch and return to the start position. Remember to flex and breathe properly, exhale when you lift your shoulders off the floor and inhale when you’re returning to the start position.
Lift Your Legs
Lifting your legs while lying on the floor or on a mat is a great way to achieve definition in your abdominal muscles, you can do these leg lifts by lifting your legs off the floor until they’re almost perpendicular to your body. Perform a few sets of this exercise and you will begin to notice favorable results. While executing this exercise, make it a point not to bend your knees, this can destroy the effectiveness of the exercise. To raise the bar, you can do these leg lifts with a medicine ball or when hanging on a pull-up bar, these advanced variations can help you hit your packs harder and better
Sit Ups For You
Think out of the box for this one, move away from the highway, and use an alternate road to arrive at ‘destination washboard’. Ask your trainer to help you out with different types of exercises, exercises that focus on your abs and help burn the fat around your belly. Start moving around, don’t just sit on that couch, bend a lot more, get flexible; you’ve got to do all this and more to get the definition that you desire. Work on innovative exercises, exercises that target your abs is what you want to be working on.
You can do a 1000 sit ups per day or a 1000 crunches per day, but if you’re not going to move it, you’re not going to get anywhere. Cardio is what you should be looking at. Run, jog, walk, skip, swim, play a game; basically, indulge in an activity that sees your heart pumping harder. A ‘hearty’ exercise is the ‘heart of the matter’ indeed.
