These articles will sculpt, define and tone the perfect set of abs with some extra added fun. All you have to do is try one set of each exercise, and when comfortable, modify and create the perfect workout that works for you! Complete your sets three times per week and you will notice not only your strength and posture improving, but your figure shaping.
1. The V-up:
Start by lying on your back, with your legs straight and arms extended overhead.
Contract your core and exhale as you hinge forward from the hips and lift your legs to create a “V” with your body.
Hold for one count, then inhale as you slowly return to the start.
Aim for doing 20 to 25 of these, but it’s ok if you can’t.
2. Super Stability Ball Plank:
Rest your forearms on a stability ball and extend your legs to rest your feet on another ball behind you.
Hold here for as long as you can — it won’t be long! — before bringing your feet and knees back to the ground.
Perform this exercise close to the beginning of your workout, before your abdominals become fatigued.
