Have you been performing hundreds of crunches and leg lift variations to flatten your abs but you still don’t see results? Does your low back have pain or ache when you do your abdominal workout? Then you’re going to love this workout program I’ve designed for you! It only uses one exercise: the Front Plank.
The Whole Picture
First, I want to tell you the truth about getting a nice set of abs. Whether you’re a woman who wants a tone,sexy stomach or a man who wants a ripped midsection, you can do abdominal exercises all you want, but without a total exercise and nutrition program, you will not get the look you are after. In fact, many fitness professionals believe that nutrition for at least 50% of the body changing results you get from exercise. That being said, this program is going to help you out and after 4 weeks, you will notice a difference in your midsection.
Core Exercise Or Abdominal Exercise?
The Front Plank exercise is really a core exercise. What exactly is the core? You may heard of the buzz word “core” spend a lot of time in gyms. The concept of the core is complex and the definition can vary from expert to expert. However, the brief explanation is that your core includes the muscles of your hips, pelvis and spine.
What I want you to take away from that is that your abdominal muscles are going to work in concert with other core muscles to maintain proper position of the Front Plank Exercise. Why you ask? The answer is because you’re going to get better results in the way your midsection looks while improving your posture and preventing low back pain!
