Abdominal Workout Routine

Here are some Abdominal Workout Routine methods--

We should tell you you Need a few Minutes to Spare

1. This ab workout routine is really good if you travel around the globe alot and also if you play alot of sports and don't always have the luxury of getting to the gym to train your abdominal muscles. One of the best thing about working on your abdominal muscles is it prevents injury and sciatica issues which can be a real pain

2. Before you get started, if you have lower back complications, it's always a good idea to check with your doctor first.

This whole ab workout routine involves only 8 exercises that you carry out one after the other and do 10 to 15 repetitions per exercise. When you are starting out with your exercises, you may only be able to perform around 6 to 8 of each per exercise. Don't worry, push through with it and in a couple of weeks you will be able to do the complete set of ab workouts.

So lets get started:

1. Elbow to Opposite Knee Sit-up While lying on your back with your both your legs slightly bent, carry out a sit up and each time you come back up, contact your elbow to your opposite knee. Keep your hands beside your head and not behind your head

2. Lying crunches While lying on your back and with both your legs slightly bent, elevated and crossed, bring the upper half of your body to your knees. Keep your hands beside your head and not behind.

3. Elbow to Leg Crunches Same as crunches again, except this time you are bringing your elbow to each opposite knee before lying down and repeating the ab exercise.

4. Leg raises With both your legs fully stretched out and slightly elevated and with your hands firmly underneath your backside, raise your legs to about 12 inches or thirty centimeters from the ground and back down to just off the ground again

5. Rowing Exercises Always Start by lying on the ground with both legs elevated basically just off the ground again, and extended and with your hands beside your head. At the same time, bring your knees and upper body together in one 'rowing' movement. This one will hit where it hurts

6. Cross-over Crunches Raise only one elbow at a time to the opposite knee. Perform 10 - 15 goes on one side before changing to the other

7. Straight-leg Crunches Perform the crunch with your both of your legs straight and fully extended vertically.

8. 'Windmills' With your legs wide apart, commence from an upright standing position and with your back straight, bend over and reach down with your hand to the opposite foot. Extend the other arm vertically into the air. Repeat this 'windmill' action and carry out 10-15 repetitions each side.

Complete the ab workout with is known as a 'cobra' stretch -- Commence by lying flat on your stomach, and with your knees on the ground and your hands in a 'push up' position beside you, begin by pushing up the upper half of your body so your back is arched backwards as much as possible. Only push up as far as is comfortable for you. Next, with your arms still extended in front of you, move back so you are sitting on your calf muscles (with your knees bent) and stretch your shoulders -- This is a fabulous and relaxing combination to finish your ab workout routine.
