Here is one of the best 10 min abs routines you’ve ever heard about. It’s very simple and very efficient and will help you get rid of that stubborn belly fat!
When it comes to losing fat and toning up, most of people think about the stomach area. There is where all fats tend to build up and it can be really hard to get rid of it. Even if you have healthy eating habits and exercise often, you might notice that the fat in this area will not go away that easy. It can be very frustrating, but if you manage to do the right exercises, you can get the best results!
You should already know that cardio alone isn’t enough to lose weight and bulid strong abdominal muscles, so here are some simple and very effective exercises you must include in your abs routine:
1. The Butterfly Crunch. I’m pretty sure you’ve already heard and even did lots of simple crunches. This variation is way more efficient and it’s great for tightening the abs. All you have to do is lie on your back with your knees open and the soles of your feet together. You must find yourself in a butterfly position. Lengthen your arms overhead and then bring them and your knees toward each other, performing a full-body crunch. Lift you pelvis off the mat and hold this position for a few seconds. Slowly lower your arms and feet back to starting position to complete one rep.
2. Oblique V-Crunch. This exercise is really fun and it does wonders for your obliques. You have to lie on your right side, with your left hand behind your head and right hand on the floor. Press down into your right hand as you raise your straight legs off the floor, bringing your torso toward your legs. Slowly return back to the floor with control to complete one rep. Make sure you feel your obliques flexing and tightening.
3. The Kick Crunch. Though it seems to be very simple, the kick crunch somehow incorporates both cardio and muscle toning. It’s very important to perform it properly, with maximum of focus and concentration on your muscles. You have to stand up and exhale to engage the abs as you kick your right leg up, bringing your left hand to your right toes, doing a small crunch.Repeat on the other side.
Conclusion: Remember that if you want a strong core and a shredded mid section, you always must be careful at your nutrition, at your rest time and of course at your training. You must perform the above exercises in 10 minutes, in one take. The rest must be no longer than 45 seconds. Perform between 10 and 20 reps for each exercise. Rest 45 seconds between them and when you finish start over again and again. Perform as many rounds as possible in the 10 minutes time. Do this routine at least twice a week and the results will come in no time!
