Hi everyone! I’m excited to launch the first edition of the Tummy Tones series! Today I’ll be sharing some easy but very effective ab exercises to whip that stomach into shape! Be sure to watch the video for a demo!
*Wuebben, Joe. “Abs ASAP.” Muscle & Fitness Sept. 2014: 74. Print.
The first exercise is the regular Crunch which works your upper abdominal. To begin this exercise lay on your back and place your feet flat on the floor. Place your hands behind your head and lift your shoulders off the ground. Don’t forget to squeeze your abdominal muscles before slowly returning to the start position.
The second exercise is Toe Touches which works the abdominal wall from top to bottom. Start off by laying on your back with your legs straight up. Point your hands towards your toes and slowly raise your shoulders and upper back. Then lower your torso back to the starting position.
The last exercise is the Crunch Knee-Up. Start off by laying down on your back with your thighs perpendicular to your upper body and your calves parallel to the floor. Slowly raise your shoulders and upper back using your upper abdominal. Then lower your torso back to the starting position.
Beginner: 10 reps / set (3)
Intermediate: 30 reps / set 1 ; 20 reps / set 2 ; 10 reps / set 3
