4 Moves That Will Give You Sexy Abs

While it’s hard to have a chiseled six pack unless you take the best diet, exercising your Abs will have an effect on them. To help you out here are some of the best moves to give you sexy Abs:

London Bridge Plank

You need to start by getting down on your forearms and toes, and at the same time keep your body in a straight line. For ideal results you should ensure that your hands are shoulder-width apart. You should also ensure that you don’t arch your back; you should maintain a neutral spine all the time.

At this position you should slowly twist your body from one side to the other. When you do this you will have completed one rep and for you to have ideal results you should repeat this rep at least 15 times.

Bicycle Crunches

While this exercise is grueling, it’s great to the abs as it easily aids in building strength and endurance. To do the crunch you should lie on the floor with your hips bent about 90 degrees and your hands behind your head. You should then raise your shoulders and move your right knee towards your left elbow and extend your left leg out for 45 degrees.

You should continue alternating your hands and legs by moving your opposite knees and elbows.

Keeping your shoulders off the floor, you should maintain the tension on your abs and work them much harder. For ideal results you should aim at making as many reps as possible.

Leg Lifts

These are great in exercising the lower abdomen. To execute the move you need to lie on the floor with both of your legs extended and place your hands next to your buttocks. With your palms facing down, you should lift both of your legs off the floor until they are perpendicular to the floor.

You should hold in this position for at least one second and then lower the legs until they are 6-8 inches off the floor. You should hover your legs at this position for a few seconds and then repeat the process. To harden this move you should keep your hands behind your head.

V-Ups

The move exercises the upper and lower abs thus giving you the body that you always wanted. While the exercise is great, it tends to injure the back; therefore, you should do it the correct way.

To start, you should lie on your back and extend your arms straight over your head. You should appear as if you are diving into a pool. At this position you should use your abs to move your upper and lower body together thus form a “v” shape with your body.

You should do a number of reps and then exhale as you lower your upper body and legs back to the ground. You should note that you should do the exercises slowly and with precision. As rule of thumb you should avoid fast, jerky movements as they will be of no benefit to you.

  1. It’s always great to find new exercises to add to my daily routine. It keeps me from getting too bored. I really like the London Bridge Plank and plan to use it regularly.

  2. From the gif, it seems that London Bridge Plank is very hard. I have only tied crunches. And my stomach muscles hurt so much just from the crunches. I only imagine how much work out I would get from the four exercises. I will try them out later.

  3. I love v-ups, I try to add them between my sets along with planks. All these exercises are also great for your core. A strong core helps immensely with weight lifting.

  4. Planks are my favorite ab exercise but I have never tried the London Bridge Plank. There are so many different plank variations and I like to switch it up. I am definitely going to give this one a try next time!

  5. I like planks. I feel like it’s a great way to practice my endurance. I’ve also never tried the London Bridge plank before. I don’t know how effective it is but I look forward to trying it out!

  6. The most important thing to remember about abs is that diet is just as important as exercise. They won’t show if your body fat percentage is too high, just like they won’t show if your core is weak! If you want abs, I recommend you check out some of the diet articles on this site as well as articles like these.

  7. Abs is my favourite body part to work out. My favourite moves are leg lifts and bicycle crunches. I also like all variations of plank, plus, plank is said to be the most effective move for your abs!

  8. I despise ab workouts but the ones listed above are do able. I can do them at home. The leg lifts are my favorite of the three. Traditional crunches are boring to me so these can really help spice up an ab workout.
