Exercising doesn’t necessarily mean to grow muscles. Unless you want to grow some big muscles, then you opt to lift heavy weights to develop big muscles.
A workout plan is a must before you do any type of lifting. Make sure to create a workout plan that’s right for you. You my ask why? Well, a workout plan would lead you to the fulfillment of success and at the same time you are working for a cause.
You must have some kind of goal, an objective, a force to move you and help you conquer a big win.
I didn’t have a workout plan when I started working out. The thing about no having a workout plan is that you lose motivation. You don’t track your progress day by day, week after week, and don’t focus on what you really need to be focused on.
If you find yourself in those shoes you need to stop right there, right now and create a plan that’s going to fit you.
When creating a workout plan you have to look at the different aspects of it. Like for instance; schedule, nutritious and a good workout routine. Once you decide what’s more convenient for you, hit the accelerator and don’t look back.
First, I always point out the nutrition stuff. Why? Because I firmly believe that if you don’t eat the right stuff, exercising itself won’t its job. It’s like a batman and robin. It goes hand by hand, one can’t function without the other. So, arrange your eating habit, then work on a workout routine.
Your workout routine becomes much easier when you know exactly what your goals are. For instance: if you want abs you need to focus mainly on exercises to shred your abs.
Abs Workout Plan.
Start off with a good run for cardio. 20 to 30 minutes is perfect to warm up and get your body ready for the following exercises.
Leg Raising is by far one of the best workouts I’ve experienced for the simple fact that it extends the body from one point to the other helping to keep a straight posture. Raise your legs forward keeping your knees bended. Bring your knees up touching your chest. Do 4 sets of 10 to 12 reps.
Do the same exercise, but this time raise your legs forward keeping them straight creating a 90 degree angle. The more you practice this exercise the higher you’d bring your legs. So, don’t worry if you can’t bring it all the way up during your first few tries, it takes time to master it. Do 3 to 4 sets of 10 to12 reps. This exercise attacks the lower part of your abs giving you that solid V shape you have always wanted.
The following exercise is very simple to execute. Planking is a really good workout for your abs, some people say that it gets boring after time, but don’t let that feeling drive you away from it. Some people even incorporate new moves to make planking more exciting. I like the old fashion way, and if I want to make planking more fun I just hold the position for as long as I can possibly hold it.
I normally go for superset to spice things up a little. I do 30 reps of regular crunch on the floor, followed by two minutes of planking. I repeat this four times and I’m good. It really makes my sweat drop down to the floor.
Try this Abs workout routine for a couple of weeks and you’ll start noticing how your abs starts being visible to your eyes.
I really think abs is one of the most important muscle in an athlete. And not only athletes, but if you workout too, abs would give you a great look.
Stick to this plan for as long as you can and perform them at least 3 to 4 times a week. Make sure you eat healthy while you on this plan. A good and healthy diet will help you achieve your goal quicker than what you think.
