The dream of many women and men is to have a sculpted physique. It would also be extraordinary to be able to reach the goal with minimal effort and little time. Both in summer and in winter we would all like to show off swimsuits or dresses that can highlight a defined body.
Even in anticipation of the Christmas holidays it would be a good goal to have a sculpted stomach and abs, not to give up a few more slices of panettone. To achieve satisfactory and visible results, it would be advisable to follow a healthy diet, contact a nutritionist and carry out regular workouts.
In fact, choosing a sport that suits our needs could help keep us in shape at 360 degrees. Before starting any physical activity, we ask our doctor if there are any movements that may not be suitable for us, to carry out the training with serenity.
To stimulate abdominals of steel and have a flat stomach it would be enough to do these exercises without tools
There are targeted exercises that, if done consistently, could help us achieve good results and even say goodbye to love handles. We can carry them out comfortably at home, with the help of a gym mat, carving out a few minutes a day.
The first exercises to perform are the crunches and are used to train the lower abs. We have to sit on the mat, bend our legs and lift our feet off the ground. We slightly detach the back from the ground and carry out twists of the torso, first to the right, then to the left. Remember to keep the abdominal muscles contracted and only when we are more trained can we also hold weights or a ball in our hands.
While reverse crunches consist of keeping the back flat on the ground, the arms are parallel to the hips. We raise the legs up and then back, keeping the abdominals contracted, until they almost touch the floor behind us, then slowly return to the starting position. We do 12 reps of both crunches, then take a short break and repeat the set 2 more times.
To stimulate abdominals of steel and have a flat stomach it would be enough to do these exercises without tools, including the bicycle. Lying on the ground, supine, we put our hands under the back, at the height of the sacrum, we raise the legs high and we simulate a ride on a bike.
Always in the same position, we can do the scissors, the legs are stretched up, let’s bring one to the torso, making a “scissor”. We do the 2 exercises for one minute, take a breath and repeat another 2 series.
Another effective exercise is the boat. Sitting on the ground. We keep arms open and legs straight, slowly raise the latter from the ground and bring the torso back, creating a “V” with the body for a few seconds, repeat for another 5 times.
