Many men out there understand that achieving a lean midsection is not as easy as some people believe. The most effective abs workouts are those that target 4 muscles groups in the core.
The muscles include:
External abdominal obliques – These are the muscles found on the sides and can be felt beneath the arms along the ribcage
Internal abdominal obliques – These are stabilizing muscles found underneath the external obliques
Tranversus abdominus – These muscles are the deepest and run horizontally along the midsection
Rectus Abdominus – They run from the sternum to the pelvis and help flex the spine as a person walks.
In order to target and tone all the muscle groups we just mentioned, perform stabilization exercises that will target the core, burn more calories and work more muscles.
Completing the exercises below 2-3 times a week will make a man have a strong core and also help improve his posture:
Plank crawl out
-Stand up straight put your feet together while engaging your core
-Try touching the floor while bending at your hips
-Once the fingertips touch the floor, walk with the hands until you are in a push-up position
-Crawl back up to the position you started in by inching the hands backwards and with your hips facing the ceiling
-Once your feet reach the floor, bend at the hips like you did before and stand up straight again
-You need to start this exercise on the left side having the elbow below the shoulder. The forearm should be perpendicular to the body.
-Place one foot in front of the other or stack them together
-Contract your core and then lift the hips off the floor
-Do this until the body forms a diagonal line from the shoulder to the feet
-Stay in this position for 30-45 seconds
-Switch sides and repeat the process
-Start in a seated position with the knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Ensure that your feet are flat
-Reach the arms forward with the palms facing each other
-Breath out and pull your belly button inwards
-Roll back onto your tailbone while curving your spine into a C shape
-Breath in and return to the position you started in
-Do 15 repetitions
Reverse crunch will emphasize the rectus abdominus.
So you learn about abs workouts but there are other sections of your body you should take care of as well. You really should practise some core workouts, chest exercises in case you have gynecomastia and also evenly work on other parts of your body.
