Taking care of your health and getting into shape isn’t a piece of cake (oh, how we hope it was!) You must devote a significant amount of time to it. You must also put forth considerable effort. You can’t take any shortcuts when shaping your body is the main goal. Especially, if you want to get abs at home.
When you have a hectic work life, working out at home seems like a fantastic idea. To bring this idea to fruition, you need dedication and motivation. Plus, you don't have to worry about other people using the equipment you wish to use. Here are a few things to help you start this health and fitness journey.
Create A Good Routine
First things first, you’re going to need to set a solid routine. If you have a job and a family, you may create a schedule for yourself that accommodates both.
When it becomes part of the routine, you'll automatically maintain it until you've achieved your objectives. When you've achieved your goals, you'll be able to exceed them and get even healthier than you might have dreamed. Ensure that you incorporate cardio and HIIT exercises in your regimen.
Core and Abdominal Exercises
Following are a few exercises you should incorporate into your everyday workouts:
Plank: If you don’t think a minute is long, you should try out doing planks. Hold yourself in a proper straight line for about 20 seconds and gradually increase it by 20 seconds, 30 seconds, and finally, till you can do a minute. If you want to take your health and fitness goal one step further, you can even try side planks and feel the burn.
Bicycle crunches: This is a terrific workout for your core. It activates multiple muscles simultaneously that help builds your core. Incorporate this into your ab workout if you haven’t already.
Exercise Ball Crunches: Yes, this exercise is exactly what it sounds like. You rest your back on the ball and do a normal crunch. Start out with ten crunches and two reps. Increase the number as you get the hang of it.
Weighted Ab Workouts
Sit Ups: While a normal sit-up works on your core when you add in weight, it’ll help you have the abs that you desire. Lie on your back and place the weight on your chest. You can keep your knees straight or bent (whichever position you want to try out.) Do a sit-up with the weight lying on your chest. If you want to simultaneously work out your shoulders, you can lift the weight up above your head and repeat.
Standing Crutches: Place weights in your hand and crunch your obliques on one side and then the other. It’s an awesome method to get an oblique exercise in your ab health and wellness routine.
