Get A 6-Pack In Six Minutes With These Six Exercises
1. Reverse Crunches
Your lower belly fat can be one of the most stubborn to lose. Doing normal crunches won’t cut it. Reverse crunches are a great variation which primarily targets your lower abs. You’ll feel the burn in your lower abs at the end of this exercise.
Lie down on your back with your legs stretched out. Lift your legs from the floor, tuck them in and lift them to your chest. Your butt should be off the ground at the top of the moment. Breathe out and return to the starting position.
Planks are indispensable when it comes to building a strong core and rock solid abs. This exercise will, if done correctly, help you tighten your abdominal muscles. Planks also make you stronger in all other exercises.
You can do different variations of this exercise like the side planks or the superman planks. Get into the planking position and hold it for a minute. Make sure you are not slouching your back or forming a bridge. Maintain a strict form to work your core optimally.
3. Side Crunches
Many people focus solely on their abs. They completely forget about working on their obliques. Your midsection can’t be deemed complete without carved obliques. These are what separate the men from the boys. Do 30 seconds on each side.
Lie on your right side and fold your legs so they are perpendicular to your upper body. Place your left hand on your head and do a crunch. Go as far as you can without using momentum. Pause at the top and squeeze your sides. Return to the starting position and repeat for the other side.
4. Elbow To Knee Crunch
Elbow to knee crunches will work your abs as well as your obliques. It will help pop out the sides of your six-pack. Make sure you have a full range of motion while doing this exercise. Don’t bring your knees close to your body to make it easy. Keep them at one position throughout the exercise.
Move your upper body as far as you can to touch your knees. Touch your right knee with your left elbow for reps until 30 seconds are up and then move onto the other side. Squeeze and contract your abdominal muscles at the top of the movement.
