If those sit-ups aren't getting you any closer to your dream of getting washboard abs, it is time you add some weights to your exercise routine. The secret to sculpted abs is to work out consistently in different planes of motion and adding weights to your workout. Here is an exercise that puts these principles into action using a dumbbell or a medicinal ball. So incorporate dumbbell chop into your next workout routine to get your abs in action.
The wood chop is a dynamic exercise that works your obliques and your upper abs while keeping your heart rate up. It defines the tummy muscles and promotes a strong and healthy back. Fitness expert Roshni Shah tells you how you can do it.
Make sure you warm up before you start this workout. Warming up helps prepare your body, both physically and physiologically, for a strenuous session of exercise. It also helps ready your muscles, sufficiently increasing blood circulation to them and prevents injuries. Also, try leg raise to get flat abs.
One thing that you ve to keep in mind is that no amount of abdomen exercises will help you get flat abs unless you get rid of the fat that s deposited around that area. The only proper way to do this is to follow a balanced, healthy diet and copious amounts of cardio. Follow these tips and get those dream washboard abs you ve always wanted.
