Get Nice Abs

It seems that anyone that wants to get into shape focuses first on their abs. Men want to have ripped and defined six packs like Brad Pitt and women want to have flat sexy stomachs like Jessica Alba. But how do these actors and actresses get to this point? They follow simple abs workout regimens that actually include basic exercises that anyone can perform.

The best workout for your abs is an exercise aptly named the “bicycle.” To perform this exercise you must lay flat on your back. Next, put your hands behind your head as if you were going to do a sit up, but make sure not to pull your head up as this can strain your neck. After that, put your feet in the air while performing a crunch and begin to peddle as if you were riding a bike. Try to do this for 30 second to 60 second intervals. Performed daily, this can have excellent results in both burning the layer of fat that covers the abs and strengthening and increasing the size of the muscles underneath.

Other exercises include things like reverse crunches and vertical leg crunches. A roman chair can also be very instrumental in obtaining ripped abs, and adds a bit of variety with the numerous exercises that can be performed with it.

If you have a muscular stomach already the answer will probably lie in weight loss. Situps do not burn as many calories as more intense cardio exercise (eg. running).

You may also want to look at your diet to ensure you aren’t consuming more calories than you need each day.

    I would agree that a variation on crunches is essential for nicely toned or sculpted abs, but at the same time you want to try and do some excercises that would take the strain off of your back. You would also need to have a proper diet regiment to supplement your aerobic excercise routine or you will soon get discouraged.
