Before jumping into the drill of exercising for abs, it has to be taken to into account that all bodies are not created equally & some people might need to work out to reduce belly fat before then can proceed to work out on their abs, while some others may need to do nothing & jump right into the exercise schedule for getting rock hard abs. Effective training for the core comes down to three basic types of motion, which are frontal, sagittal & transverse.
Below are a few exercises to help with carving out abs:
1. Using an Ab Roller for Ab Wheel Rollout
While kneeling on the floor, hold the ab wheel under the shoulders.
Harden/clench abs & gradually roll the wheel forward until there is a sense of loose tension in the core abdominal area & a sense of the hips sagging. Go back to the original posture & repeat.
2. Barbell Russian Twist
Tightly hold the barbell at the very end with both hands, after which stand with a space of a shoulder between the feet. Then, swing the bar to the left & then to the right.
3. Swiss Ball Crunch
Lie down on the swiss ball while keeping feet planted on the ground with a shoulder-width between the feet. The lower back should entirely be supported by the swiss ball. While placing the hands behind ears, tuck chin & then gradually curl up the body from the ball until a sitting posture is achieved.
If these exercise schedules are followed every day properly, one can have a decent rack of abs in some time, all the while increasing their core strength & overall fitness.
