Ab Workout: Six Packs Abs Conditioning
Abs workouts are sort after weight loss. Having six packs whether it is for men and women, is something you want to flaunt at the beach and in a sexy outfit. But before you hit into some hard core exercises, Rajesh Sharma, personal trainer from Mumbai takes you through abs conditioning for six packs.
For six-pack abs one needs to strengthen the abdominal muscles and lose body fat. Unfortunately there is no escaping cardiovascular exercise and weight (or resistance) training to lose weight in a healthy way.
In order to strengthen the abs, you will have to follow exercises related to both, the abdomen and the back. There are different types of crunches and other abdominal exercises that focus on the entire abdomen, from the upper to the lower sections. These exercises are ideal to strengthen your abdominal muscles.
A few exercises you must perform in a Warrior Abs workout are:
- Heavy strength training (especially squatting & especially front squatting)
- Unilateral exercises (single arm pressing & pulling variations, suitcase deadlifts)
- Standing or kneeling pulling & pressing exercise variations
- Olympic lift variations & combo exercises/complexes
- Weighted sled work (pushing & pulling variations)
Hence it is important to build up your abdominal muscles and here’s how you can do it!
