We all want to look great and have nice abs, but staying in shape isn’t exactly easy. As a matter of fact, sculpting your body does require a lot of dedication and time, as well as paying attention to what you eat and regular exercise.
When talking about exercise, the usual things like sit-ups rarely work. There are, however, much better exercises that will tone your abs easily and quickly. All the exercises listed below are aimed at your excess belly fat and will melt it sooner than you can think of.
Flat belly exercises:
This exercise is aimed at your lower abs. Lie down on a yoga mat on the floor. Now, lift your legs up, spread your hands to the sides of your body and start lowering the legs down to the floor without touching it. When you’re near the floor, bring your knees to the chest and lift them up again. Try doing the roll for 30-40 seconds or more if you can endure it.
The windmills target your lower abs and side leg muscles. Start by lying with your back on the ground and your legs up, but this time extend your legs to one and then the other side. Make sure to lower them as close to the ground as possible without touching it. Repeat for 30 seconds.
3. Starfish crunches
Lie down on the floor and spread your legs and arms, then start touching the opposite arm with the opposite leg. Breathe deep throughout the exercise and perform it as long as you can.
4. Mountain climbers
Go down in a pushup position and keep your back straight, then start bringing your legs to the chest one by one in a jumping motion. Keep going for 30 seconds, but keep your back straight.
5. Russian twists
The Russian twists are aimed at your side ab muscles. Sit down on the floor with your legs bent and feet on the floor, keeping your torso at a 45-degree angle. Now, start moving your hands and torso from side to side for 30 seconds or more.
6. Spiderman planks
Go down in a pushup position, then lift one leg at 90 degrees and bend it. Make sure to keep your back straight and hold the position for 15 seconds before switching legs. Also, you’ll need to breathe properly during the exercise.
7. Single leg drops
This exercise is aimed at your lower abs. Lie down on your back on the floor, with your legs extended and your arms spread out to the sides. Now, lift up your legs, then lower them one by one slowly to the floor without touching it. Your legs need to stay active and straight all the time. Go for 30 seconds or more if you can endure it.
8. Double leg circles
Lie on your back on a yoga mat on the floor, then lift your legs straight up to the ceiling. Now, start doing circles in the air with your legs – do 30 seconds per leg. Breathe deeply during the exercise.
9. Vacillate kicks
Lie down on your back and lift up your legs, then start kicking the air. Keep your back and shoulders on the floor and breathe deeply during the exercise. Repeat it as much as you can – a burn in the lower muscles should be a good indicator to stop.
