Try these 10 abs workouts to get lean abs easily.

“How to lose weight fast, specifically: belly fat.”

Having a very large tummy isn’t necessary but If you’re tired of your stubborn belly fat or belly pouch; these simple Ab workouts may help you to lose weight and build lean ripped Abs. It is important to note that exercises are not for everyone so it’s best to consult your physician before embarking upon any lifestyle change.

I personally do these easy exercises once or twice a day to help me keep in shape and burn off excess calories. If they worked for me then you should have some success in getting lean core abs also.

Getting abs isn’t an easy process that happens overnight. It requires a lot of hard work and actually keeping them is a lot more difficult. However these exercises are great, easy and super effective to help you get one step closer to shedding your stubborn belly fat and building rock solid lean abs.

Now let’s go through the top 10 ab workouts that I use and you can too, to get amazing results.

 

 

  • Abdominal Crunches

Ab crunches are one of the most popular core workouts because it has been producing amazing results for many people. The exercise may be easy for some, but might be a little difficult especially if you’re just beginning. It is best to start at a low paste and as your body gets accustom to the exercise, you can increase the momentum.

 

How to perform abdominal crunches?

  1. Lay your back flat on the floor; feet straight out with hands behind your head
  2. Raise your head up; hands behind your head with your back digging into the floor
  3. At the same time, bring your knees towards your chin while raising your head almost to touch your chin. (If you’re a beginner, you might not be able to bring your knees too close to your chin, but as time progresses you will get more flexible.)
  4. Revert back flat to the ground and continue performing reps of 10 or as much as you can. Always take rest when needed.

Workout tip

  • Focus on lifting your shoulder blades off the floor
  • Keep a space between your chin and chest

 

 

  • Russian Twist

This workout is perfect to help you lose belly fat and build oblique abs to get amazing results. For best results you may consider using a dumbbell, however if you’re limited on equipment; you may leave out the dumbbell.

 

How to perform Russian Twist Ab Workout?

  1. Begin by sitting on the floor in a 90 degree angle with your legs straight out
  2. Bend your knees like youre about to perform a crunch; then  lean your back into a 45 degree rotation
  3. If you’re using a dumbbell; hold the dumbbell with both hands straight out in front of you. If not, put your hands in a fist.
  4. Start by twisting only the top of your body all the way to the left, then to the right. If performing with a dumbbell, keep both hands on the dumbbell, lean back and twist side to side.

Workout tip

  • Keep in the 45 degree while performing the Russian twist. The more you lean back, the better your chances of results.
  • Try not to lean too back where you’re almost laying on the ground.
  • Avoid moving your legs
  • To make the workout a bit more intense, keep both feet off the ground in the air while twisting

 

 

  • Lying Leg raises

Lying Leg raise exercises can be done in many different forms such as with one hand, both hands and no hands. In this post we will be covering leg raises with no hands.

  2. Begin by lifting your left leg in the air to a 90 degree angle then back down.
  3. After 10 reps switch over to the right led. (you can do the left leg, then right leg or one leg at a time; it’s up to you)
  4. Consider doing both legs at the same time or intertwine the workout with single leg raises.
