Getting abs is not easy as it requires constant exercise and the right diet but did you know that you can get abs with just two five-minute routines that you can do twice a day?
Do the following steps and get that dream six-pack abs you want so much in more or less a month:
Start with crunches
Lie flat on your back with your fingers on your temples. Raise your knee and make sure your feet are flat on the floor. Your legs and thighs must make a 45-degree angle. Crunch up and reach up towards the sky. Repeat for 30 seconds in a controlled but gentle pace.
This exercise builds up your abdominal strength and pushes your abdominal fats down.
Do the “reverse” crunches
With your back on the floor, place your hands behind your butt and bring your knees toward your chest. And bring it back to its previous position. Repeat until you reach the 30-second mark.
This strengthens your lower abdominal and pelvic muscles. This also stabilizes the fat in the lower abdominal muscles so that you can concentrate on working them out later. Do this for 30 seconds.
While lying on your back, bend your knees and slightly spread your legs. Touch your heels alternately for 30 seconds. If it burns, you are doing the exercise the right way.
Perform a bridging exercise
Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Raise your hips so that your shoulders to your knees create a straight line. Pause for at least a second and squeeze those abs. Then lower your body back to the floor. Do the exercise for 30 seconds.
Do the exercises above one more time
All those previous exercises will be done for a total of 2 minutes. Do it one more time.
Do a one-minute plank
Get into the push-up position but instead of your hands, rest your forearms on the ground instead. Make sure your body is straight and that your abs feel tight.
This is typically the hardest exercise so if you are a beginner, try to do the position for at least 15 seconds and then incrementally increase it in the coming days or weeks. Another alternative to make this easier is get into the push-up position, get your knees on the ground as if you are kneeling and then cross your feet in the air.
