March 19, 2015 - Abs Exercises



The crunches are maybe not the best abs exercise but they are the most popular. They target the upper part of the abdominal muscles and performed correctly they can help you to build the base of your upper abs.


Lie flat on the floor with your knees bend and feet on the floor. Place your hands lightly behind your head without locking your fingers and keep your elbows in. This is the starting position.


Take a deep breath and pull your abdominal muscles like you want to touch the floor with them. From this position by flexing your abs start lifting up and in until your shoulder blades and head are of the floor but your lower back is still on the floor. At this position hold the peak contraction for 2 seconds and breathe out. Than return back to the starting position in a controlled manner. Repeat for the desired amount of reps.
