Usually, a silly secret to slim tummy and toned skin lies in Abs workouts. Abs workout in general is considered to be the most difficult exercise. But it is a myth. The fact says that the tummy has three regions (the upper, mid core and the lower belly) in which the lower belly is most difficult to reduce. Overall, the exercises that we do, can mostly work on some regions of the tummy, hence, we choose abs exercise to cover the entire tummy region for the fast and efficient results.

Some of the fitness tips for abs are as follows:

 

  • Planks:

The most common one. Everyone will have this exercise in their routine. So, all we have to do is, keep this persistent and be particular about timings and sets.

To do this exercise, we first need to lay on tummy, put a had forth and our entire body weight should be on our arms and feet. The stomach region should be at least 20cm above the ground. And stay in that position for 1 minute at least.

NOTE:

Sets: 3

Duration of each set: 1 min

Rest: 30sec

For even better results also add “Plank to Push-up” in the routine.

All you got to do is, do push-up within a minute that accounts to 8-9 times, without letting the distance between the floor and the tummy decrease.

So, the total set accounts of two exercises with each set of 3 times and a rest of 30-40 sec before starting the next one.

 

  • Deadbug:

This exercise is easy and very very effective. All you have to do is, lie on your back on a yoga mat. Raise your right leg upward along with left hand. Inhale a deep breath so that your abs are engaged. Now, while you exhale slowly in 30 secs, tilt your right leg downwards and move your arms backwards. Now try the same with other side. In this way your abs will get contracted and released which is most effective on your tummy muscles.

Yet another very effective and common exercise. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Lie on your back on a yoga mat. Keep both your hands near your each with slightly taking a hold of your head.
  • Raise your both the leg upwards making an angle of 45 degrees.
  • Make sure the hip should be a little above the ground.
  • Now turns your legs in the 45-degree position like a cycle.
  • Do this for a 45-seconds. And then try doing it in the reverse way.
  • After doing this, take rest of 30 secs to start again.

PS: While rotating your legs like a cycle, make sure you bring your elbow to the new with every turn. This makes your rib cage moving and not just the elbow.

Re-position as fast as possible. This time hop into the outside of your left hand and keep rotating for 12-15 reps on each side.
