Lose Those Flabs To Get These Abs!

FullSizeRenderHaving great looking abs takes time, training hard, lots of cardio and a clean diet. To get great abs we have to start in the kitchen by cutting out fried foods, sugars, refined and processed foods, alcohol, and even dairy. That means eating more natural foods such as, vegetables, fruits, protein and drinking lots of water. Next, we must get lean by doing different forms of cardio.  We suggest mixing up HIIT or metabolic burst exercises with a few minutes of slow steady cardio. This way your body is burning more calories due to the change in pace and you can achieve more results in a shorter period of time.  Finally you’ll need to add some abdominal exercises to get those abs popping! We suggest the you do the following static abdominal exercises, which are great for building up abdominal strength and tightening the core.

1. PLANK

This is our all time favourite for abs! For a pretty basic isometric exercise, planks strengthen your entire body—they make your core pop, strengthen your lower back, glutes and build your shoulders. Better yet, you don’t need any equipment, and you can amp up the intensity by widening your stance and bracing yourself with your hands instead of your forearms and elbows.

First, get into pushup position on the floor. Now bend your elbows 90 degrees and rest your weight on your forearms. Your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders, and your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold the position for as long as you can. Your goal should be to hold it for two minutes.

  • Make sure that your elbows and shoulders are in line as well as your neck in line with your spine and hips
  • Keep belly button pulled toward spine the entire time
  • Make sure not to let your hips drop
  • Try holding for 30 seconds and slowly increase time

2. STATIC CRUNCH AND HOLD

This exercise is to be done in 2 segments. Lie on your back and try to raise your upper body up without straining your neck. you may use arms for support. Keep belly button pulled toward spine the entire time.

  • Crunch and hold for 30 seconds and slowly increase
  • After the 30 seconds go slightly higher and hold for another 30 seconds

3. STATIC V-SIT

Lie on your back and raise arms and legs until your body forms a V.

  • Keep belly button pulled toward spine the entire time
  • Create a V with your body using your arms and legs
  • Try holding for 30 seconds and slowly increase
