Are you looking to tone up your waistline? Here are a few exercises that help you achieve your goal of a small waist. Do each exercise for sixty seconds each.
The fist is the abdominal curls. Lay flat on the floor with your knees slightly bent. Lift your heels so that only your toes are on the floor. Place your hands behind your head. Lift your upper body up, exhaling as you raise up. When lowering back down inhale.
Still in the same position as you were for the abdominal curls, it is time to work on the sides with oblique bicycles. Lifting your right knee, bring it up to meet your left elbow. Do the same with the other side as well.
Stay on your back and lift both legs up in the air. Put your heels together and keep them close to your backside. Using your lower abdominal muscles slowly lift your backside up in the air.
Now it is time to work the whole length of your abdominal muscles. Lift your legs so that they are straight in the air and also hold your arms up in the air as well. Arms and legs should be parallel of each other. Slowly lower the right leg and the left arm at the same time until it barely touches the floor. Then slowly bring both back up to the starting positions. Repeat on the other side.
On your back with your arms straight out beside you on the floor. With your legs raised but slightly bend your knees. Lower your knees to the right side and then the left side.
Now you are ready to get in a high plank position. On your toes and hands with your arms completely straight. Bring one knee up to the arms and then the other. This move will resemble running on the the ground.
Stay in the same position but instead of bringing your knees straight up, raise them to the opposite elbow. Don’t forget to do this for sixty seconds.
Flip back onto your back and curl yourself into a tiny ball. With your legs bend and raised, place your hands behind your head. Then crunch both legs and arms together. This move will look like you are trying to tighten into a small ball.
Now roll onto the side and place your bent elbow directly below your shoulder. Place your feet either on top of one another or in front of one another. Now push your body up and raise your other arm straight up in the air as if someone was pulling it with a string. Try to hold this position for 30-45 seconds on each side.
Turn over so that you are lying completely on your stomach. Lift up on your elbows and your toes. Make sure your elbows are under your shoulders and keep your backside down and in line with the rest of your body. Hold this position for 30-45 seconds.
Do each of these exercises every day and you will have toned abs in no time!
