Achieve your dream abs with these 5 easy workouts
Posted date: 14-Apr-2020

Losing weight could be the most difficult thing for many of us, and losing belly fat, is definitely the hardest thing to do. We compile 5 easy ab workouts that targets your upper abdomen, lower abdomen, obliques and your core.

 

#1 REVERSE CRUNCH

If you have ever done crunches, this would be pretty straightforward for you.

 

Start by lying down on your back, lifting your legs up with your knees bent 90 degrees. Keep your knees bent and locked, bring both your legs down without touching the ground and then back up again.

 

Repeat this for 10 times, 3 reps.

 

This trains your lower abdomen.

 

#2 SIDE PLANKS

Lay down on your side with your forearm flat on the floor and elbow directly under your shoulder. Extend your leg out in a long line and life your hips off the floor, forming a straight line from your head to your fit. You should be using your abdomen muscles – core and obliques to support your body and not your arm muscles.

 

Hold for 30 seconds and repeat on the other side.

 

You can attempt to repeat this for at least 3 times on each side.

 

This trains your obliques.

 

#3 KNEE TO ELBOW

Lay on your back with your hands cupping your ears, bring your left knee up to your head, bend your body up and try to touch your left knee with your right elbow. Repeat on both sides.

 

Do this 10 times on each side, 3 reps.

 

This trains your upper abdomen, lower abdomen and obliques.

 

#4 RUSSIAN TWIST (with a twist)

This is a simpler version for those who are just starting out.

 

Start by sitting on the floor and bringing your legs out straight. Lean back slightly such that your legs and torso form a V-shape. Now, instead of lifting your feet up, keep your heels rested on the ground. Twist your torso from side to side without moving your legs.

 

Repeat 10 times, 3 reps.

 

This trains your obliques.

 

#5 WIPERS

Lie down on your back and raise your legs up 90 degrees. Spread your arms out to your sides for support. Keep your knees locked and legs together, bring them down to one side without touching the floor, then to the other side, and back up.

 

Repeat 10 times, 3 reps.

 

This trains your core.

 

All the best in achieving your dream abs!
