Abdominal exercise routines

Typically the well-known types of abdominal workouts are crunches and sit ups. However, due to the fact that several men and women encounter neck and/or shoulder strains as a result of these kinds of exercises, several personal fitness instructors today would suggest performing reverse crunches as a more suitable option. Performing reverse crunches in repetitions definitely will enable you to flatten your stomach as well as strengthen your abdominal muscles since this isolates the transversalis and the rectus abdominis during your workouts, enabling you to zone in on your targeted workout area.

Assuming you want to end up getting the best out of your abdominal exercise routine, you really need to have a look at ab workout manuals, instructions and videos which will demonstrate the correct technique for performing abdominal exercise routines should your end goal be to achieve a “six pack”.  Provided that you have zero cost restrictions, you could actually employ the services of a personal fitness instructor to continually assist and direct you towards the “six pack abs” you desperately want.

Part 3 – Losing Weight

Posted by Nigel Jeal | Posted in Getting started | Posted on 06-01-2011-05-2008


In Part 3 we are going to look at having a healthy fridge and cabinet and the wonders of water.

A Healthy Fridge and Cabinet: You need to take some time to look in your fridge and kitchen cabinets and throw out any fattening and unhealthy foods and replace them with healthy foods and snacks.  All the best dieters do this to make their kitchen as diet friendly as possible.

Water:  Water is a key component to life; no living creature can live without a fresh
supply of water for very long.  Your body is comprised of 70% water, your blood
is nearly 80% water and your brain is nearly 85% water.  So it is important to stay
hydrated all day, every day and if you think you are going to function physically
and mentally without getting enough water then you are just fooling yourself.
Your muscles will not be able to get strong enough, they will never be able to
recuperate fast enough and will never look defined enough.   On top of that if
you don’t consume enough water you will age faster, retain more water, be more
susceptible to germs and colds, lose joint mobility and much more.

a) Drinking icy cold water makes your body work to warm up the water and burns a few extra calories.
b) Drinking water will lower stress and boost your energy levels.
c) Drinking water is essential to good digestion.

So, you now have the key steps to getting started with your weight loss.  Good Luck, YOU CAN DO IT! :)
