Stomach Exercises For Women


Stomach Exercises1
One of the great things about ab work is that it's really not as complicated as people make. You do not need to invest in all the fancy gadgets. You do not need to obsess on the latest abs exercises trainers invented to keep people interested. If you like to, well, go ahead, but sometimes the best workouts are the easiest workouts. Here are some things you need to remember when you work your abs:--

Target each abdominal muscle group--
 Your "abs" are not a single muscle - they are made up of several groups of muscles that work together to help with everything from breathing and posture of bending, twisting and, well, really every move you make. It is important that when you do ab work, you target each group of muscles that make up your core. Mix up your routine so that you are including torsion, extension and static bending exercises, so you hit your rectus abdominis, internal and external obliques, transverse abdominal and spinal.

Does not always save the ab work at the end--
 This is a fairly common practice to save abdominal exercises to the end of a workout routine, after conducting training cardio strength or other exercises. Although there is nothing wrong with this practice openly, it is a good idea to mix from time to time and add your ab work at the beginning of your program or between sets of other exercises. In this way, you will not be as tired when you target your heart that you will really focus on proper form and strengthening abdominal strength.

 Add weight--
 If you want strong abs, you need to add weight to your exercises! Your abdominal muscles are just like your quadriceps, hamstrings and biceps, and they respond to strength training in the same way ... they grow.. This does not mean that you have out-of-control-abs huge, it just means that you have a better chance to improve definition in your heart. So take dumbbells, weight plate or medicine balls to boost your routine. Just remember, the form is more important than the number of exercises you can do! If you find yourself becoming tired after you add weight to an exercise, go ahead and do fewer repetitions, just slow down and make sure they are done correctly.

 Target your abs at least a few days a week--
you can actually help strengthen and tone your heart and stay focused on posture at all times, especially when other exercises. For example, if you are a runner, make sure to keep your abs pulled in toward your spine while you run. If you love to hit the weights, make sure you engage your abs and core during every exercise you perform. Without even realizing it, your abs are still working, so staying focused on your abs, you can help prevent injury and improve your overall performance.

Perform V-up while sitting on a bench, aerobic step or while sitting on the floor. The advantage of using a bench or not, is that you can grip the edges of the bench behind your buttocks to help you remain stable. With your feet together, pull your knees to your chest and lean your torso back slightly. In this position, extend your knees, keeping your feet on the ground, clutching his chest and leaning back slightly to help maintain balance. Draw your knees to your chest back to complete one repetition.

Keep your hips stationary, twist your torso to one side, touching the weight to the ground before turning back to the center and continuing to turn to the opposite side. When you hit the ball medicine ground on each side of your body and sent to the center, you have completed one repetition. 
Plank -
Balance on your forearms and toes, creating a straight line with your body from your head to your heels. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds to complete one set.
Leg lift -
Contrary to popular belief, lifting the leg does not work your "abs", it just works your muscles rectus abdominis from a different angle, you will feel in the lower half of your stomach and your flexor muscles of the hip. Lie on your back and place your hands under your hips to help support the lower back. Raise legs so as to form an angle of 90 degrees with the ground. Keep abs engaged and the lower back in contact with the ground, lower your legs less than six inches off the ground, then reverse the movement and increase their return to the starting position. Repeat 12 to 18 times to complete a single set.
Situp -
The situp works your rectus abdominis all the way from your sternum to your hips. Even if you have heard that crunches are "bad", that really just depends on the strength and shape of a person. If crunches are uncomfortable, do crunches instead! You can also do crunches on a fitness ball to make the exercise more difficult.
