Let’s be real, every one wants BETTER ABS. The problem is that society walks around hunched over, they work at desks, they drive all day, and they have poor posture! Meanwhile, they go to the gym and sit on crunch based machines that further exaggerate their hunched over posture. As a socoeity we are all turning into rolly pollies (or potato bugs as people like to call them). The solution to better abs in a instant is simple!
Just 5 Minutes a Week Could Improve Your Abs FAST
- Sit up straight as much as possible
- Practice holding in your stomach instead of letting it all hang out. Pull your belly button into your spine and hold for as long as possible, do this through out the day. As your stomach gets stronger, your posture will get better and your core will be tighter.
- STRETCH ! I have watched countless exercise videos and exercise routines. The main problem with them is that they aren’t teaching the public to stretch their abs. If those videos and routines are what America is watching, then it’s no wonder we aren’t getting the results we desire.
If you are a workout animal and you love to work your abs then you MUST stretch them also! Otherwise, you will have unbalanced, tight abs. You also won’t be able to stand up straight very well because your tight abs will keep your hunched over!
Stretches for better Abs
Dont forget that stretching your abs is also great for lower back pain. Do each stretch after working out and try to do them once a day especially if you are seated or driving a lot. The first 3 stretched should be held 20 -30 seconds. The last exercise (known as the cat stretch) should be pulsed up and down 15 – 20 times for best results!
Better abs are about stretching, strength and eating habits. Remember, you must change your eating and pay attention to your calorie consumption and body fat to actually see your abs. However, these exercise will help you get better range of motion while doing ab exercises, they will aid in posture and also overall contraction.
