Ab Routine

Ab Workout

1. The Mountain climber

To lose fat and tone your lower ab muscles you must engage in aerobic exercise. Luckily for you, mountain climber provides a total-body and cardiovascular workout. You can expect to work your shoulders, abs, quads, and more, while also increasing your heart rate.

Begin in a plank position, palms to the ground and arms straight out in front of you, right underneath your shoulders same as the push-up position. Your legs must be extended in a straight line. You must maintain your back in a flat position and your arms in the same position throughout, quickly tuck your right knee toward your chest, then jump it back to the ground as you simultaneously pull your left leg toward your chest. Repeat the procedure quickly as many times as you can.

2. Lying Leg Raise

Begin this exercise by lying flat on your back with your hands underneath your glutes, palms down, and legs extended straight out in front of you. Lift your legs slowly off the ground until they are perpendicular to the floor. Hold the position for a second, then bring them back down to the floor. To increase the challenge, don’t let your feet touch the floor in between reps.

3. Scissors

This exercise is similar to the lying leg raise, except for the fact that you’ll be lifting one leg at a time. You lie on your back with both of your legs lifted such that they are perpendicular to the floor. With both your head and shoulders lifted off the floor, lower your left leg down until it is about 6 inches from the floor as you gently pull your right leg toward your body. Switch sides for one rep and repeat about ten times.

4. Reverse Crunch

This is most effective for the lower abs than just the average crunch. Reverse crunches deserve being part of your daily routine. You start by lying flat on your back, legs raised while at the same time knees bent at a 90-degree angle. You then, lift your lower back off the ground while tucking your pelvis towards your belly button. You shouldn’t rely on the momentum by kicking your legs for this. Instead, you should keep it controlled to ensure your abs do the work. Bring your body back down to the ground with the same control and repeat about ten times.
