You have probably all heard the term “Abs are made in the kitchen” which is a 100% true. Doing 100 crunches and sit-ups will NOT give you a flat stomach. It will build up your muscle on your stomach but until you lower your body fat percentage you wont see any definition. By doing cardio, lifting weight and eating healthy you will build muscle and burn fat while speeding up your metabolism, which in return will give you a toned tummy.
When I do abs I like to choose 3-4 exercises and 4-6 sets of 15-25 reps, making sure each one hits a different area of my core so that no muscle is left out.
Lying flat on your back lifting your legs to 90 degrees and then slowly lower them to 1 inch from the floor.
Lie face up on the floor with your legs and arms straight. Hold your arms straight above the top of your head. In one movement, simultaneously lift your torso and legs as if you’re trying to touch your toes. Lower your body back to the starting position.
Lying on your back and holding a 5-8 lbs weight keep your knees bent and feet on the floor. Using your core muscles bring your upper body up till you can touch the weight to your feet.
Face down on the floor rest on your forearms, palms flat on the floor. Rise up on your toes keeping your back flat and in a straight line from head to heels. Contract your abdominals and squeeze your glutes and thighs. Hold for 1 min
