If you want to be a chick magnet, the first thing that should top your priority list is getting rock hard abs. If you are not keen on splurging astronomical sums of money on gym memberships, then this article will be of interest to you.
Right food to eat
No exercise is going to render any desired results, unless you do not cut down on the fat loaded munchies that you so love. Eat small-portioned meals often; rather than eating three heavy meals a day, eat 5 to 6 small meals throughout the day. Your meals should be low on calories and high on proteins, carbohydrates, and fiber.
If you are truly devoted to achieving fab abs, then you might need to cut back on booze. This might be hard for some people, but guzzling alcohol will only add rolls of flab around your waistline.
There are certain foods that will help you build mass. The miracle foods that should be a part of your everyday diet include nuts, chicken, salmon and other fish, spinach, fresh fruits, milk, and dairy products. These foods are packed with essential minerals, proteins and carbohydrates that will help you achieve that coveted lean body.
Tried and tested exercises
There is nothing worse than a saggy stomach with rolls of fat. Hardening your abdominal muscles has numerous benefits. Well-toned abdominal muscles will improve your upper body posture and body strength.
Crunches are a simple yet effective way to harden abdominal muscles. Crunches can be done in three different ways -regular crunches, reverse crunches, and side crunches.
Regular crunches – stretch out on the floor, bend your knees, and place your hands behind your head. While exhaling, lift your shoulders and upper back off the floor, tightening your abdominal muscles while coming up. Hold the position for 2 seconds before inhaling and returning to your normal position. Beginners can do the crunches 12 times before steadily increasing the counts and reps overtime.
Reverse crunches – reverse crunches are a great way to strengthen your lower abdominal muscles. Lie on the floor; and place your hands to the side of your body, palm down. Raise your knees in towards your chest, until your knees are bent 90 degrees. Remember, in this position your knees will be perpendicular to the floor, whereas your legs will be parallel to the floor. While inhaling, lift your knees to your head, and contracting your abdominal muscles lift your hips off the floor. Hold the position for a few seconds and lower your body to its original position while exhaling. Do the reps 15 to 20 times per set.
Side crunches – side crunches is exceptional way to work out both your abs and sides at the same time. Stretch out in the normal crunch position. Your back should be flat on the ground; your knees should be bent so that your feet are flat on the ground. Place your hand behind your head. Lift your shoulders and head off the floor like you do in normal crunches. Hold the position and bend sideways. Your hip and waist should remain stationed to the floor. When you bend, your elbow should be able to touch your hips. Slowly come back to the normal position and repeat the steps on the other side.
Trying the simple exercises everyday is sure to get you that toned and chiselled abs you have been lusting after.
