Fitness Gurus, Fashion Models or to a gym pundit the Look becomes Killer with a Chiseled abdominal structure. The 2 by 3 structure around the mid section from pelvis to Pecs is a sure shot turn on. However like all other muscles core cannot simply be populated via repetitions or variations; it needs a strict diet control to go along with it. The key to abdominal workouts is quality over quantity. There is no use of 2000 crunches in case you can’t work them in a good shape. Slow and concentrated effort is the cornerstone of a strong mid section.
The marketing gimmicks of 21 day shredded program and 30 day to washboard abs challenge has lead to profusion of misinformation and confusion. The trail is my choices of twice a week abs workout; where the focus is to pull the maximum out of each repetition.
All exercises are performed 3 sets each with a decreasing rep count in the order 12-10-8 reps per set( minimal rest between sets). I would not quantify the amount of rest one should take; however try to keep it minimal to your best potential.
2. Hanging Knee to Elbows
3. Hanging Alternate Twist
3. Leg Raise 90 Degrees
4. Reverse Crunch
The attached list is my routine in my current month cycle; however change is of paramount importance in case you wish to see that ripped mid section. Working out abdominal like any other muscle needs proper attention and time. Lets go through some of the common mistakes one should avoid while working out the mid section.
DON’T DO IT DAILY :
pundits might say anything, but trust me if your worked out today and are not feeling sore tomorrow in that muscle you probably didn’t hit the crunches hard enough.
TRAIN THEM LAST
Abdominal involves the core, back, or term it as the entire mid section. You will be less productive on compound movements if you fatigue your support muscles at the start.
A COMPLETE DAY TO TRAIN
Compound Movements already involve a lot of core exercises; so there is no need to dedicate a complete day to abdominal workout. Push in few exercises 2 days a week post your primary muscle workout and you are sorted.
Does this really need an explanation. Misery and Mockery will constantly bang at your door if your postures are not correct.
Change like in life similarly in workouts is the only constant word. Changing exercises allows you to hit different angles making a holistic movement through out structure.
Focus on Karma and don’t be driven by ego. If Fitness is your aim you really dont need to run after marketing Gizmos for a solution.
