Have you ever heard of a person getting six pack abs in less than two months? It sounds impossible but it is already a proven fact that it is possible. One advocator of six pack abs in around that much time is Jillian Michaels. You may know her as one of the trainers on The Biggest Loser, both in the US and in Australia. Michaels’ has one fascinating video which is Six Pack Abs in 6 Weeks. Allow us to share to you some of the exercises which can also help you in your pursuit of six pack abs.
This is a warm up exercise that incorporates abs so as to quicken the gain of six pack abs. You basically start off by standing with your feet apart and your hands extended on top of you in the form of a V. Then you perform a squat and you X your hands across each other and try to touch the floor. When you go up, return them to the V position. You don’t need to go all the way down if you are a beginner. The important thing is that you sweat and get your heart rate up. Bend with your knees and keep your chest up and you will be fine.
Yet another warm up exercise that targets the abs. Michaels’ says this it is good to do this so that you train the abs while warming up. Your six pack abs seems to be within closer reach if you do this. To perform a jackknife, extend your hands above your head, one on top of the other. Bring both arms down and also bring your knees up. The goal here is you should try to reach your toes while keeping your hands completely straight. Be sure to alternate between one foot and another.
Still another six pack abs warm up exercise. Simply place your hands behind your head and extend your elbows. Then you lean forward with one leg and bend your back knee. After that, return to the original position and then repeat with the other leg. When you lean forward, keeping that forward knee at a 90 degree angle is important. If you bend it too much or too little, you might lose balance or sprain yourself.
This is already part of the main six pack abs workout. Extend your arms up over your head while clutching a dumbbell. All you need to do is bring your elbows down and your knee up and try to touch them together. You should alternate your knees as well. All in all, it just looks like you are doing a standing crunch.
These are only some of the exercises you can do to get these six packs. You can research for more on your own or consult your own personal trainer to get some tips. Remember, cardio is very important at the start so that fat is weeded out. As soon as there is minimal fat, move on to strength training.
