5 Gut Busting Exercises
People including me really want to lose weight, and even more important than losing weight is to get ripped, shredded, or whatever else you want to call it. I want to be able to lift a car with my bare hands and I want to be able to grate parmesan cheese using my washboard abs. Of course all of this is a lot easier said than done, and getting those 6 pack or even 8 pack abs is not easy at all. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to turn that muffin top into great looking ab muscles.
The problem for a lot of people is actually that they only do crunches or sit-ups. While these exercises are good and they do build some muscle, they do only target certain muscle groups in your core. To really get those abs looking the way you want them to, you need to do a whole lot more than just crunches, especially because doing too may crunches or sit-ups can lead to some very severe back problems.
One thing to keep in mind is that quality is always better than quantity. You can pump out thousands of sit-ups per day, but that might just lead to back pain and other issues. It is always better to do less if an exercise but to do it right. Here we have 5 different exercises that are all fantastic for blasting away that gut and turning it into a washboard fit for a beauty model. Sure, you can keep doing crunches but the results will be minimal. Try these exercises and you will see results in just a few weeks guaranteed.
The Spiderman Plank Crunch
This exercise is fantastic for targeting all of your abdominal and core muscles so it is one that you should definitely try. Start this exercise by doing the classic plank, which is pretty much staying in a push-up position while supporting yourself on your forearms. While in this position bring your right knee as far forward as you can, hold it, return to the planking position, and the repeat it with your other side. You should try to do this 20 times, and do 3 sets. This is a great exercise because you don’t need any equipment and it targets both the front and back of your abdominal muscles.
The Cable Rotation
This exercise is geared more towards people who like to do sports and is very abdominal intensive. This exercise is fantastic for targeting the oblique muscles and will leave you with shredded washboard abs in a matter of weeks. Start this exercise by holding a cable in your hands while raising your arms to just under shoulder height straight out in front of you. Keep your arms straight and outright and keep your abdominal muscles engaged, then simply rotate your core and your upper body to the left as far as you can go. Hold this position then return to the starting position. Once you have done 10 reps for one side start doing it for the other side.
