Posted Jul 28 2010 11:05am
When performing abdominal exercises, good form is crucial for maximum benefit. Here are 3 tips for ensuring your ab exercises are most effective
Don’t rush. Be very slow and smooth with the ab exercises. Ideally, try to take 2-4 counts to come up and 2-4 counts to come down.
Concentrate, concentrate, and concentrate on those abdominal muscles. Visualize in your mind the contraction and working your muscles as you perform an exercise.
Before you begin, think about pulling your belly button in toward your spine. Now keep it in that position throughout the entire move. You may need to remind yourself periodically to keep this position.
