Getting in shape and having defined abdominal muscles takes dedication, exercise and diet. Drinking a six-pack a day while eating a burger and fries won’t get you a lean toned body. Defined muscles hidden by fat won’t give you the desired look. Here are three exercises for your six pack workout.
Start your exercise routine by doing sit ups. Lie down on the floor with your knees bent, and arms folded across your chest. Initially you may need to hook your feet under something heavy such as a barbell to keep your feet from rising off the ground. Bring your torso to your knees by lifting your lower back away from the floor. Don’t curve your back; keep it straight. Lie back down, and repeat. Do it as many times as you can.
Do leg lifts as your next exercise. They work the lower abdominal muscles. Again lie on the floor, but this time keep your legs straight. Have your hands at your side palms facing the floor. Raise your legs so your heels are 6 to 8 inches above the ground. Lower your heels, but don’t let them touch the ground. Repeat as many times as possible per set. Do three sets.
The last exercise trains the body core. Planks strengthen the abdominal muscles as well as the back. Place your body in a push up position, but place your elbows on the floors so your arms form an L, and your palms are facing each other. Your body should form a diagonal straight line from your shoulders to your heels. Keep your butt and abdominal muscles tight. Hold the position for as long as possible, and repeat.
These are three exercises for a six pack workout. In conjunction with diet, they will get you in prime beach condition.
