We all want to get tight abs, but we all convince ourselves that we don’t have enough time to go to a gym and workout. All right, you might be busy to go to a gym, but all of us have few free minutes to perform exercises at home or anywhere else. You don’t need any equipment to get ripped abs. Just get energy and some time for yourself and your body.
One of the easiest ab workouts you can perform even in front of TV is a sit up. Lay on your back on the ground with your knees and your feet flat on the floor. Lace your fingers together behind your head, supporting your neck. Inhale and exhale deeply for few seconds, and during exhalation, use your abdominal muscles to lift your head, neck and shoulders off the ground. Inhale, and slowly lower your body back to the ground. Repeat few times.
Continue your workout with usual squats. Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Relax your shoulders and back, tighten the muscles through your core. Engage your abs as you lower yourself into a squat, hold for 5 seconds, and slowly raise yourself back up to a standing position. Repeat few times.
One more good exercise for you is a bicycle crunch. This is one of the most effective exercises for your abs, and it’s more effective than traditional crunch.
Lie flat on your back, making sure to press your lower back against the floor. With your hands behind your head and your elbows pointing forward, raise your feet off the floor, knees bent, so that your thighs are at about a 45-degree angle with the ground. Slowly start pedaling your legs as if you’re riding a bike. As your left knee comes in toward your chest, touch your right elbow to your knee then touch your left elbow to your right knee.
