There is no doubt that all women want flat abs, but most of them have no time or energy to do abdominal exercises. In many cases, they do not start training their abdominals because they think they should go to a gym or buy an ab machine. And at the end they do nothing for their shape.
If you want to have a beautiful and strong core, you can do a lot for it at home. You do not need any machines or go to a gym. You do not even have to spend a lot of time and energy on the ab workout.
Planks are great to train your whole midsection efficiently. It is necessary to keep the plank position as long as you can. If you have not done this ab exercise before, try to do it at least 30 seconds. If you do not feel your muscles are working, you probably do this workout badly.
Once you are familiar with plank, you can start doing it with leg raising. This will work your abs harder and at the same time trains your hamstrings, as well.
Reverse crunch is an excellent alternative for the common crunches. Many people do not like doing crunches because they feel pain in their lower back or neck. Reverse crunch is an easy way to work your upper and lower abdominals. Try to push yourself as high as possible and squeeze your muscles.
Bicycling on the floor and leg raising are also useful to train your whole core, but concentrate on your abdominals, simply do not use your leg muscles.
Basic crunches are good to tone your abdominals, but it is really important to do it correctly. You should squeeze your ab muscles and keep your lower back on the floor. Use your muscles to push yourself up and do not pull your neck with your hand.
