Tight abs are not easy to attain, but if you are disciplined about working out your abs, you can get a strong core in 30 days or less. If you don’t think you have the motivation to keep up an abs exercise routine long enough to see results, here a few reasons to get yourself fired up.
There’s a lot of personal power that comes with having a strong core, including:
- Having better posture that exudes confidence when you’re standing in line next to a cute guy.
- Never again having to hesitate about wearing a tight fitting shirt.
- Being able to try a new sport, like snowboarding or tennis, and learn it and be good at it faster!
So let’s get started with working out your abs!
1. Working Out Your Abs With Basic Crunches
Basic crunches stimulate the upper abdominal area. To begin, lie on the ground. Bend your knees while keeping your feet planted on the floor and put your hands on your chest to decrease the stress on your back. Bring your shoulders to your knees and back to the ground. Try 50 crunches to start. Once you get more practice, work up to 100 and then 150, then 200 and so on.
