Six Pack Workouts
There have been several six pack ab workouts that specifically target abdominal muscles have been designed and have proved effective. These workouts take only few minutes to do, and if done daily, help you build a strong core and defined ab muscles.
Six pack ab workouts do not necessarily require the use of gyms or expensive equipment. One needs to only have access to a flat floor that is free of obstacles and somewhat padded to protect your back. A towel will do. One can introduce soft music to accompany the workout or rock and roll to keep you pumped up. This creates a suitable atmosphere for carrying out the workout and is bound to be encouraged to continue with the workouts.
Any ab workout session should be set off with light warm-up exercises. Such warm-up is necessary so as not to hurt the body with vigorous exercise that can lead to the damage of muscle tendons and ligaments. By warming up prior to the main workout, blood circulation is increased, leading to smooth main workout.
Workout 1 – Knee Ups
This workout targets abs, strengthening them and making them stand out. You only need a flat floor. Start by lying down flat on the floor with the face upwards after a alight warm-up. Bend your knees and put your hands either over your ears or at the back of your head. Bring over the bent knees towards the head in a slow motion. Let the bent knees hold in position for a few seconds before returning them back in a slow motion. Do this for 4 reps of 20 times once every day and you should notice the tightening and feel the strengthening of the abdominal muscles less than six weeks. Add this to your routine and carve killer abs in a short time!
Workout 2 – Oblique Cruncher
This ab workout is also intended to strengthen and tighten abdominal muscles. After light warm-up exercises, lie sideways on the floor with the knees bent. Depending on which side you lie on, put one of your hands under your head. Hold your upper knee with the free hand and bring it up to the head while leaving the other knee in place. Do this several times then change over and do the same with the other knee and hand. Carrying out this workout once a day on a daily basis should produce results in less than six weeks. This can also be turned into an abs routine workout.
