A toned flat stomach is what most women would like to achieve and it’s possibly the fastest way to lose belly fat. We think that crunching is reliable but then it was found out the crunching is not the most effective. It is not actually effective because it only works on the muscles on the front and sides of the abdomen. It is important to target all the muscles of the core to get more defined acts including lower back, hips, and upper thighs. It is recommended that exercises like the plank helps train muscles to stabilize the spine and pelvis so you can avoid back pains and improve posture. It also burns more calories than crunches because they work more muscles. There are new rules of lifting for ABS and for sure you will have a perfectly toned tummy.
Here are the exercises:
Side Plank – this is challenging than a traditional plank because your entire body weight is only supported in two points of contact instead of four. To stay stabilize one has to work one’s core harder as a result. To do this: lie on your left side with elbows directly beneath the shoulder and legs stacked. Place the right hand on the left shoulder or on the right hip. Braising the abs and lifting the hips off the floor one would be balancing on the forearm and feet so that the body form a diagonal line. Hold it for 30 to 45 seconds. Stay up as long as you cannot hold it for 30 seconds. Just repeat procedure till you have held for a total of 30 seconds. Then switch sides and repeat.
Walk out from push up position – this exercise involves full body movement such as the arms while preparing for resistance to strengthen the entire core. This is done by starting in push up position with hands 2 inches wider that the shoulders. Walk hands out as far as possible then walk back. Do 10 – 12 reps. To make it harder lift one leg before you walk the hands out and back.
Alligator Drag – this is an exercise where it uses the entire core to keep the body stabilized and burns additional calories by adding movement (dragging oneself along the floor). Cardio stability and training in strength mixes to get fast results.
To do this, find a stretch on the floor that allows a person to go forward 10 to 20 yards and grab anything that will slide over the surface with minimal friction. On carpeted floor, dinner plates or plastic bags will work. While on wood tiles towel works on it. To start do a push up position with the feet on the slides towel or plates. Using the hands, walk forward to the end of the runway for at least 10 yards. Then rest for about 60 to 90 seconds or for as long as you need to recover and repeat the alligator walk back to the starting points. That would then make one set. Then repeat one more time.
