The Ultimate Hi-Def Abs Workout

Submitted by on August 22, 2010 – 9:47 pmNo Comment




Duo common blunders are largely made by men in their endeavour at owning 6 pack abs (apart from going on a diet ‘tomorrow’) is the usage of exercises – for example crunches which put strain on the abdominals merely through a section of their innate movement and classically employing solely their body’s weight for resistance. These limit benefits as they fail to work on the mid-section muscles to the maximal extent.

Here is a program devised for eliminating all these mistakes by impelling contraction of the abdominal muscles via a complete range of movements and including additional weight in the perfect sequence. The final outcome – One would be working one’s abs for the analogous period of time however with significantly enhanced outcomes.

This program is to be performed thrice every week while giving a day’s break in-between every session. The exercises are to be done as alternate sets – performing 1 set from the foremost exercise, resting for half-a-minute then performing 1 set of the 2nd exercise and then resting for thirty seconds. This has to be repeated thrice for an aggregate of 4 sets of every exercise.

Wrist-knee Curls

  • Lying with back touching the ground and elbows placed out at forty-five degree inclination and finger tips to touch the sides of one’s temples.
  • Bending the knee and hip regions perpendicularly. Now hoisting shoulders and hips away from the ground and holding this pose.
  • While not stopping, taking a second for returning to the beginning pose that constitutes a single repetition. Repeating on the opposing side as well.
  • Performing two to three sets of ten to fifteen repetitions and taking 2 minute breaks in-between sets.

Medicine Ball Curl Ups

  • Lying with back to the ground and knees bended perpendicularly and feet flattened.
  • Clutching a medicine ball on top of the head with arms straightened so that it makes contact with the ground.
  • Swiftly sitting up and contract one’s abdominals and vigorously thrust the ball in front of one’s body as though replicating an over-head football throwing move (though do not let go of it).
  • Keeping arms straightened for the whole move. Now lowering oneself to the ground as swiftly as possible, repeating and touching the ball at the back of one’s head briefly.
  • Performing two to three sets of ten to fifteen repetitions and rest for 2 minutes in-between sets.

Swiss Ball Clinch

  • Placing a bench plus a swiss-ball around 3 feet at a distance.
  • Now getting into an adapted push up pose by placement of toes on top of the bench and elbows pressed on the ball.
  • The body must ideally be forming a straightened line from torso to ankle region. Rolling the ball forwards as distant as doable while not permitting sagging of the lower portion of the back.
  • Holding for thirty seconds till 2 minutes. In case one is not able to hold it till thirty seconds then rolling the swiss ball nearer to the bench.
  • Performing one to two sets and rest duo minutes in-between sets.
