Lets talk waist.
Rule of thumb – eat right!
When it comes to the midsection the real key is always eat right and then the exercises fall into place.
Here is part two (Exercises) that will help you get where you want to be.
The ultimate exercise is PLANKS. Yes simple as that! -when done properly
Always keep your belly in and your shoulders above your elbows
Feet together and your body flat!
Keep your legs straight and hips raised to create a straight and rigid line from head to toe.
Keep those abs contracted!
DO NOT let your lower back sink during the exercise!
If you are circuit training do rounds of 30-60 seconds and if you are just doing standalone plank exercises I recommend 3 sets of holding the position as long as you possibly can.
STRAIGHT LEG SIT UP TWISTS
Self explanatory exercise and quite effective as well their are two ways to do this exercise
I will post step by step pictures later in the week.
Lay on a flat surface with or without a floor mat, which ever works better for you.
Hands behind your earlobes and sit up straight as you come up to a sitting position turn only your waist and extend your left arm past your right foot, lay back down with both arms behind your earlobes and sit up turning the opposite way with your right arm past your left foot.
If you are circuit training do rounds of 30 x3.
Another way to do this exercise is on a bench with your legs elevated on the bench same method and reps.
LEG RAISES ON BENCH
Leg raises are another great am exercise, just make sure each rep is not rushed, keep it controlled.
lay on a bench with your feet together and legs straight, make sure you keep your abdominal muscles tight and lift your legs up to a 90 degree angle with your hips.
Slowly lower your legs towards the floor, make sure it is a controlled motion keep your legs straight and feet flexed. Make sure your legs form a straight line as the rest of your body, then repeat. If you are circuit training do rounds of 20 x3
