Some Useful Tips for Creating Ideal Abs

Some Useful Tips for Creating Ideal Abs

In the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans, it took several months for sculptors to create the perfect appearance of the stomach muscles. Therefore, it is not surprising that it is a “job” that even today, in the daily life of a practitioner, requires effort and time. For this reason, we will try to give you some useful tips for creating ideal abs.

Something about the anatomy of the abdominal muscles


Something about the anatomy of the abdominal muscles
If we want to properly develop these muscles, we must, at least in general, know something about their anatomy.
Namely, the main driver of the central part is the so-called “rectus abdominalis”. It is a muscle that extends from the lower part of the ribs to the pubic bone. It is involved in bending the spine and lifting the upper body.
Apart from these, there are internal and external muscles responsible for body rotation. They extend on both sides of the “rectus abdominalis” and, viewed from the front, their fibers form the letter “V”.
The fourth group consists of transverse muscles, which are placed the deepest and their function is to stabilize the torso.

Some exercises to create ideal abs

1. Crunches – is a movement known to everyone who wants to achieve beautifully sculpted abdominal muscles.
Otherwise, they are done as follows: lie on your back, legs slightly bent at the knees. Cross your arms over your chest. Then take a deep breath and hold your breath as you lift your head and shoulders off the floor. Of course, the lumbar part of the spine is fixed to the floor.


2. Reverse crunch – is a basic exercise for the lower abdominal muscles.
The exercise consists of the following: lie on the floor, stretch your arms above your head. Bend your legs at the knees, so that your thighs are vertical. Take a deep breath. After that, lift and rotate your pelvis towards your chest, until your hips lift off the floor.

3. Torso twist – this movement shapes the oblique muscles.
Lie on the floor, spread your arms with your palms facing down. At the same time, the shape of your body should look like the letter “T”. Raise your legs so that they form a 90% angle with your hips and extend them. Then lower both legs to one side, keeping the 90% angle.
Touch the floor. Immediately switch both legs to the other side. If it is too difficult for you to keep your legs straight all the time, then bend them slightly at the knees.

4. The upright letter “V” is an exercise that is equally good for all abdominal muscles. Otherwise, it is one of the more difficult exercises, so we recommend that you start with 5 to 10 repetitions.
Do it like this: lie on the floor with straight legs and outstretched arms. Raise your legs together with your hips into the air, while pressing your upper body into the floor. Try to reach your toes. If you succeeded, your body will form the letter “V”. Lower yourself gently to the floor. Do an immediate rep.

One more note about creating ideal abs

Ideal abs

In the text above, we have listed only 4 exercises that we recommend. By the way, there are many of them and they are well known by both experts and exercisers who aim to create an ideal torso. However, what needs to be emphasized is this: if you only do exercises that engage only the abdominal muscles, you will not achieve a special result. Because if you are moving a small number of muscles, the calories will not be reduced enough. Unfortunately, it may happen that your abdominal musculature is strong and developed, but it is covered with fat deposits. Therefore, practice movements that require burning more calories, in combination with the ones mentioned above. Of course, don’t forget proper nutrition.
