3 Abs Exercises We Totally Approve Of
1. Leg Lift With Knee In:
Get down on your back, and bring your legs up straight. Put your hands behind your head, lift your shoulders and head up making sure there is a space between your chin and chest. Slowly bring the right knee in towards your chest and extend the left leg, while pulling in the tummy at all times alternate between the two legs. Repeat 10 times and do three sets.2. Leg Raises:
Lie on your back with your arms along your sides, palms facing down. Bring your feet together and raise both your legs, keeping your knees straight. Point your toes and bring your legs all the way down without touching the floor. Flex your feet and drive your feet straight up toward the ceiling. That's one rep. If you want to challenge yourself, lift your chest and head off the floor and repeat the exercise. However, make sure you don't put any pressure on your neck. Repeat 10 times and do three sets.
3. Side Plank With Twist:
Lie on your right side and place your right forearm on the bed. Keeping your hips, shoulders, and feet stacked, brace your core as you lift your hips up toward the ceiling as high as you can. Stretch your left arm straight up toward the ceiling. Without touching the mat, slowly lower your hips, then return to starting position. Keeping your core engaged, twist from the waist as you bring your left arm down and underneath your body. Return to starting position to complete one rep. Do one side and then repeat on the other. (Modified version: Stagger your feet or place your top foot on the mat.) Repeat 10 times and do three sets.After you are done with your quick yet super effective workout bring your knees in towards your chest and give yourself a good stretch, of course, with a pat on your back for coming along so far! Repeat daily for speedy results.
