    Abs lower and uppper

    March 27, 2019, 3:30 pm

    Hi 👋🏾 Scott, I usually do leg raise straight facing the ceiling on mat for targeting Lower abs or the reverse crunch aka lying leg raise and crunch or sit ups for upper you. Are these bad exercise? What do you recommend something effective that doesn’t require a very strong core?

    Only doing sit-ups is not going to help as you have to include different kinds of exercises that hit different muscle groups such as the frontal, sagittal, and transverse and do the right ab workouts.

     

    Also, HIIT is an exercise that really makes your muscles work extra hard and helps get rid of the love handles that isn’t what you can call a sight for sore eyes.

     

    Try any of these workouts for abs improvement at home and watch your abs transform for the good! Motivation peppered with determination and perseverance is the key to get those washboard abs.

     

    Make sure you have liberal doses of all three when you include these ab exercises.

     

    Regularly doing some good ab workouts at home, such as the seven below, will give you a flat belly ASAP.

     

    1. Barbell Squat Good Ab Workouts - Barbell Squat A squat is a great way of activating the muscle fiber rates in the rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and also in your internal and external obliques. This is one of those good ab workouts that can’t be missed, especially when you’re performing your flat abs workout routine. How to do it right: Keep your feet shoulder-width apart, and the barbell on the back of your shoulders. Now, lower your body toward the floor and send your hips back and down while you bend your knees. Push back your heels to get back to the start position. Ensure that your back is flat and your head stays straight while you maintain the movement.

    2. V Ups Good Ab Workouts - V Ups This move helps activate all of the abdominal muscles and that includes rectus abdominis, internal and external obliques, and also the transverse abdominis. The movement is not very difficult to follow either. How to do it right: Lie down on the floor and relax while you extend your arms right above your head and raise your legs keeping it suspended in the air at a 45-degree angle. Breathe deep and try to roll your head and shoulders off the mat while you continue to push your ribs down toward your hip bones and gently breathe out. Lift your torso off the mat while you keep your core engaged. Position your arms in a way that your arms and legs are parallel to one another. Stay in the position for two steady counts and keep breathing gently. Roll back to the starting position and back to the mat.

    3. Reverse Pushup Good Ab Workouts - Inverted Row The reverse pushup is a bodyweight exercise and is also known as an inverted row. It works on your core and upper body muscles, shoulders, arms, also your legs and back. How to do it right: Lie down with your back under a fixed horizontal bar. Grab the bar with an overhand grip, maintain a shoulder-width distance. The bar should help you stretch your arms to the maximum extent and your upper back does not touch the floor. Position your heels on an exercise bench and maintain a distance of hip-width apart. Align your legs and upper body in a straight line and raise your upper body. Get back to the starting position till your arms are fully stretched again. Do at least three sets of it with 10 exercises each.

    4. Plank Reach Out This exercise works your entire core. It is one of the best exercises to do at home for abs. How to do it right: Start with a push-up position; and maintain a straight alignment from your shoulders till it reaches your toes. Lift your right hand and the opposite leg. Get back into the plank position and then repeat the process on the other side, that is one arm and opposite leg. This completes one leg.

    5. Scissor Kick Good Ab Workouts - Scissor Kicks Scissor Kicks Target the obliques with the scissor kick and soon you will be able to get killer abs. How to do it right: Lie on the mat with your legs lying side by side. Lift your head and shoulder blades off the mat. Bring up your heels a couple inches off the mat. Brace your core muscles and bring your lower back on the mat while you tighten your pelvis. Tighten your core spine and maintain this position throughout the duration. With a scissoring motion move your legs in a vertical plane. Add the torso twist with your scissor movement.

    @clutch_1994 Those aren't bad exercises, they're great! But you should be focused on building a stronger core so you can do more and more movements. Alternating toe-to-hand touches are great for your lower abs and so are deep crunches. For upper I like ab pulldowns the most! If you're talking bodyweight only.. how about these!
