Abdomen Exercising Tips

Abdomen Exercising Tips

Abdomen Exercises
Abdomen exercises are considered to be most tough ones. But surprisingly it is one of the easiest exercises.
Top abdominal exercises are bicycle maneuver, captain’s chair exercise and crunch on exercise ball.

While exercising we need to consider the following five points to make our exercise real effective -
1. Focus on diet.
2. Before working out, always perform cardio activity.
3. Train on an empty stomach.
4. Rest time between exercises should be minimized.
5. Abs should be contracted and flexed in between sets.

Few basic exercises for abdomen muscles are:

Crunches
It is highly effective abdomen exercise. It is performed by lying flat on the surface with hands either behind the head or across the chest. In continuous and controlled motion, contract the abs, hold it for about 2 seconds and then return to the original position.

V-Crunches
V-Crunch exercise is performed by having chest at 45 degree angle and then lifting legs upwards towards chest thereby making V with one end of V being the chest and other end being knees with base being your abs. It is very useful for lower abs.

Lying Leg Lifts
This exercise is for lower abs. To perform lying leg lifts, lie flat on your back and lift the legs about 10 inches above the floor. Perform it repeatedly. To add up leverage place your hands under the buttocks while performing.

Side Crunches
The aim is to work out oblique muscles (love handles). The technique is the same as for regular crunches, only you need to crunch to either side of your abs.

Hanging Leg Raises
This is a great exercise for lower abs. You need strong chest, back and shoulders to perform it. Start hanging from a bar with feet hanging freely. Pull them towards your chest. The motion needs to be slow and controlled one.

HomeGymCentral is a complete resource to make your abs look perfect. Try out the latest and most sophisticated products to have those fabulous abs.
