Do you really want to build up and strengthen your abs? Try this super abs workout.
Start out doing three sets of 20 repetitions for one or two of these exercises during your abs workout. Then as your abdomen gets stronger add a few more exercises to your routine. Also, try to rotate a few different exercises in each week for variation.
Remember that these exercises alone will not help you develop a flat tummy or six pack abs. You will also need to do regular cardio exercises and eat a fat burning diet.
CrunchesLie on your back on the floor or a mat with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Curl your torso up toward your knees, lifting your shoulders a few inches off the floor. Now, contract your abdominal muscles and hold for one second. Return to the starting position and repeat.
Twisting CrunchesThese are performed just like crunches except as you raise your shoulders, rotate your torso toward one side. Then rotate back down to the starting position. Do half of the set twisting toward your left, then half twisting toward your right.
Compound (Cross-body) Crunches
Lie on your back on a mat, put your hand behind your head, bend your knees and have your feet flat on the mat. Now curl your body forward and contract your abdominal muscles. Bring your right elbow and left knee together. Return to the starting position and repeat the exercise, this time bringing your left elbow and right knee together. Continue to alternate throughout the exercise.
