What are some really good ab exercises so I can feel the burn the next day to show it's actually doing something?
I've been doing situps on a machine at the gym with extra weight added, and pulling my legs up while holding myself up on some kind of thing (for lower abs), and just having my butt on the ground as I go side to side to work on my side abs. I hardly feel it's doing much, but I do it intensely.
I could also lose some weight before they would show anyways.
I'm 5'10", ~178lbs, and 20yr. old
pilates is really good, but if you want to loose weight as well i recommend you exercise your legs, since they are your biggest muscles and it's a body part that accumulates the least fat, so by exercising legs, you will need fat to burn and your body will drain it from the rest of your body, that way your abs will show faster n_n i reccomend Kim Kardashian's: fit in your jeans by friday xd i only got it because i thought the name was hilarious, but it's actually a very good leg and but work out 3nodding
Instead of just focusing on ABDOMINAL ONLY workouts, do CORE workouts. Core is everything from shoulders down to knees. If the core is stronger, everything else is stronger. And the core is essentially the naval outwards. And where is the naval? Directly under the 6 pack or where it would be. Doing exercises like planks, lunges, shoulder raises, squats, etc all work on the core and get even better results than 'ab' workouts. Pm me if you want me to be more specific
Compound exercises in general hit the core quite well. In fact, you can do really well by just doing five or six big lifts. Deadlift, bench press, overhead press, squat, rows, and maybe pull-ups(depending how good your form is and whether you can do it in the first place) are your friends. Do them consistently and do them often with a good progression scheme and a good protein rich diet and you will look good; chest and so much more included with the abs.
OMG. I've done that before. I started cursing at the screen because it was so jfier'opg 6jfpoie76bfgdre rjiofje 9frj0 j90jc 0459u x5ndiojd wi!!!!!!!!!
Just so you know, I never curse while i exercise so that's just how intense it is.
