Do You Want Abs??
Let’s get the most important part out the way first - you need to get your body fat levels down to a place where you’re abs would be visible!!!
You can do all the crunches and leg raises in the world, if you’re body fat levels aren’t a point where they are low enough to see your abs. You won’t see them!
However, training and strengthening your core is a vital tool for helping in all aspects of life! Other training exercises will all benefit from a stronger core. Your posture and every day tasks, back pain etc etc, the list goes on!
Now onto actually training your abs! Most people I see really aren’t getting the most out of there ab training, or training there abs at all - a lot of “sit up” movements and movements people consider crunches really aren’t contracting your abs as you should be, often people are just stressing their hip flexors!
Think about trying to get your sternum to your pelvis as short as possible! Whilst keeping your hips locked in stone! The ab mat shown above is a great tool in aiding the “crunching” motion!! (If spinal flexion allows)
Control every rep, no momentum coming out the the stretch position, pause and initiate with your abs! Contract all the way through using your abs and squeeze at the top
Give these a go guys USE YOUR ABS!!
