How to get a 6-pack abs: Tips and Workout

The Range Of Motion

land_inimageA lot of people are doing a lot of ab exercises but they never target the abdomen. The reason why is because they are just hitting their hip flexors.

Let’s think about how the abdomen works

It opens and closes your stomach region. And in a lot of ab exercises like bringing your feet up, you’ll work your flex muscles if you don’t open your abs at the full range. When doing this exercise in the wrong way, you will feel your abs working, but it’s just a little bit to stabilize yourself.

To really target your abs and to build great abs you wanna make sure that in any movement that you do, it opens up and then it closes. A good way to compare is a bicep curl, when you fully extend your arm (the muscle opens) and then bring it towards your shoulder (the muscle closes).

To build great abs you need to do the exact same way.

Easy ab Exercises

Hanging Leg Raises

Wrong: Raise your legs until they are parallel with the floor. If you’re going half way up, you’re not working your abs, you’re working your hip flexors.

Right: Raise your legs as high as you can and when they’re down, make sure to really stretch your ab muscles to the max. That will really target your abs and help you build those great abs we’re talking about.

For the hanging leg raises I recommend you to start with 3 sets until failure (do for each set as many reps as you can).
