Losing fat is the only way you are going to get visible abs. You will have to completely change your diet and do good cardio. But to have really good looking abs you will have to do some ab exercises that will help you get a better shape to those abs. After all they are also muscles!
Exactly why today, with this article, I am going to share with you my top 5 ab exercises that will help you get ripped abs faster.
Ab exercises are good, but not enough for a good looking core (six pack). But if you combine ab exercises with deadlifts, lunges, and squats, you are really going to train that core. Keep that in mind and you are not going to have any problems in the future.
OK so here you go, my top four ab exercises for maximum results
This exercise is going to allow you to train your upper abs really good. Adding weights is a really good way to increase muscle gains in your ab area.
How to perform: You must be on the floor, face up, with knees bent. Start lifting only your upper body only a little bit. Don't use your neck! Keep it nice and straight. To be sure you are going to perform it correctly, while lifting your upper body from the floor pretend you are going for the sealing with your nose.
I know this might sound silly, but it's the only way you will learn how to perform this ab exercise.
#2 Double Crunches
This exercise is going to train your lower, medium, and upper abs (the whole ab area). Adding weights is not needed, you can perform it only with your body weight.
How to perform: It's like the crunch, but the only difference is that you will have to lift your legs up. Keep the knees bent and try to get them as maximum as close to your chest as you can. Don't fully lower your legs, this way you are going to be working your lower abs more.
#3 Leg raises
This exercise is going to allow you to train your lower ab section. You can always ad weights to your legs to increase the intensity of the workout.
How to perform: While lying on the ground lift your legs up. Keep your legs streight. Keep your hands next to your upper body. Do not fully lower your legs. This way you are going to keep your lower abs under pressure.
#4 Air bike
This exercise will train your core and you obliques. You don't need to add any weights to your legs. The exercise is enough intense to keep your abs and obliques working.
How to perform: Take a look at the picture. I think it's going to be hard for your to understand how to perform it by reading it, you will have to see it, visualise it.
There you go four easy to do ab exercises that are going to blast your abs. You are going to fully train your upper abs, your lower abs, your medium abs, and your obliques. In other words you are training your whole core.
Adding these exercises to your workout is going to allow you get a better shape to your abs. Don't stop using Deadlifts, Squats, Lunges these exercises are going to help you work your abs.
