Basic Abdominal Exercises

Basic Abdominal Exercises

The most basic
abdominal exercises are sit-ups. They are the easiest to do and need no weights. They are done by lying flat on your back with raised knees, with your hands across your chest to avoid working other muscles other than the abdomen. Raise your shoulders and upper half of your back of the floor. For starters try this start with ten repetitions inhaling as you lift up and exhaling as your get back to the floor.

 Another technique is to stand up and suck your stomach muscles in then release them by ’snapping’ them out again repeat this a few times

The other way of stretching your abdominals is by interlocking your fingers, then lifting your arms over your head stretching backwards as far as you can. This really stretches your abdominals

The other basic product for abs is the
exercise ball which is both safe and very effective for the abdomen. By lying on the ball facing up with your hips curving down means that your abdominal muscles get stretched out more hence exercising them better

The other abdominal exercise is called plank which requires one to position him or her self in a pushup position and hold the pose making sure that the body is in a straight line from head to toe.

The bicycle is the other basic abdominal exercise tool which does wonders to your abs especial cycling while pulling in your abs.   It’s very effective for your abs and easy to practice.

Jogging is also another high impart form of exercising that  goes along way to burn the fats around the abdomen and therefore giving it the desired shape or figure

Apart from the above exercises, a balanced diet with less or no fats is advisable if one is to maintain a flat stomach as well as a good waistline
