3 Moves for Rocking Abs – Fitness

We all know that doing 1000s of sit ups won’t give us a six pack. In order to have a six pack we have to shed the layer of fat over our abs. That being said however, ab exercises are a must not only to strengthen your core, but also to tone, shape and reduce your waistline. Regular ab exercises are an essential part of your strength and conditioning. Here are three top ab exercises to help strengthen your core and help you get that swim suit ready body.

 

  1. Knee Tucks:
  • Start on your back, bend your knees into your chest, point your toes together, and open knees out to the sides in a diamond shape, keeping toes touching.
  • Extend both arms overhead on either side of your ears, palms facing up.
  • Lift your hips off the floor and bring your knees up towards your armpits.
  • Slowly lower your hips back down to start position. Careful not to use momentum. Repeat 2 sets of 12 reps.

 

  1. Plank:
  • Lie face down on mat resting on the forearms, palms flat on the floor.
  • Push off the floor, raising up onto toes and resting on the elbows.
  • Keep your back flat, in a straight line from head to heels. Tilt your pelvis and contract your abdominals to prevent your rear end from sticking up in the air or sagging in the middle.
  • Hold for 30 to 60 seconds, lower and repeat for 3-5 reps.

 

  1. One-Arm Full Sit Ups:
  • Start lying on your back with your right knee bent, foot flat on the floor, and left leg extended straight out on the floor.
  • Extend your right arm to the ceiling and reach your left arm towards your left foot. Sit all the way up, rolling through your back, keeping your right foot on the floor, and your right arm up over your shoulder.
  • Slowly roll back down to the floor. That’s one rep. Repeat 15 times on one side, 15 times on the other.
  • For an extra challenge hold a dumbbell in your extended arm.
