Common Misconceptions On Abdominals

COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT SCULPTING A SEXY STOMACH OR A THREE PACK

MYTH # 1:
If I do enough crunches, I can have a washboard stomach. Actually, people who have exceptionally defined abs are genetically gifted. While most of the exercising population will never attain a ‘washboard’ stomach, you can definitely make the best of what you do have by sticking with a low fat diet and regular training.
MYTH #2:
I do 1,000 crunches every day, and I still can’t see a difference. If you are eating lean and working out consistently, sculpting firm abs is not about how many crunches you do, but how you do each one. Go very slowly, consciously contract those innermost muscles, and exhale on the lift motion of each crunch. Always maintain contact between the floor and your lower back by tilting pelvis up to ceiling.
MYTH #3:
I cannot do abdominal crunches because it hurts my neck and lower back. Actually, if you conditioned you abs regularly, your neck and back would grow stronger and they would no longer strain uncomfortably during the exertion. One word of caution: If you do have a chronic lower back problem, omit the more advanced exercises in which legs are suspended in midair.

Your stomach – or more correctly, abdominal region – is a miracle of muscular technology. Abs is a part of almost every movement you make, from lifting and bending to twisting and balancing. They are also the key to physical strength and beauty. Without abdominal power, proper posture is unattainable, lower back pain is probable and overall flexibility is limited. While daily bouts of abdominal work are unnecessary, consistent abs training (3-4 days per week for 15-20 minutes per session) is the path to good health.

AFTER: Take time to stretch your waist and back since they are all integrated parts of your trunk. Back muscles are most important for controlling the mechanics of your spine, and poor posture greatly contributes to lower back pained and injury. A strong, healthy stomach is the sexiest one- beautiful body alignment and trim waistlines are all part of the bigger picture.
