Here is a post I am reposting because it still works!!
You ever see this ball in the gym and wonder what the heck is it for? lol Well. Here are just a few of the ab exercises I use it for. I’ve always been obsessed with my abs, whether I was bigger or smaller I have NEVER had rolls in my life. However, I have always committed to doing my ab workouts to keep my tummy firm. It is important that you keep a proper form when doing your ab workouts or you will injure your back. And trust me when I say this, it HURTS!! Don’t hesitate to ask the trainers at the gym to show you a few tips. There are many machines you can also use. I don’t recommend for you to solely depend on ab machines. You MUST do abs on their own not just on a machine. What you are eating is key when building abs. Make sure to try my shakes and low calorie recipes as they will help you burn fat. A friend of mine once told me (which I thought he was crazy lol) “abs are made in the kitchen not the gym”, your diet is very important. Make sure to eat clean.
My personal workout routine consists of such:
4-30 second planks
1-1 minute burn out plank, do the plank until you can’t do them anymore. BURN BURN BURN!
4-6 sets of 20 standing up crunches
4-6 sets of 20 of a variety of laying down crunches
4-6 sets of 20 crunches on the stability ball with weights or a small 5 pound medicine ball.
**Every 2 weeks I switch up the ab routine to something new.
Try these out and let us know your progress?
