Who doesn’t want a perfect set of six-pack abs? Gone are the days when mainstream actors flaunted big bellies (remember Rishi Kapoor?) with pride. Nowadays, even supporting actors need to have six-pack abs. If you are looking to get a great set of abs (rectus abdominis) too, then you need to perform ab twists. Ab twists work on your core and also work several muscles on your hips and midsection. The exercise also engages your oblique muscles giving your upper abs a defined shape. Several other muscle groups of your body also get engaged improving your overall strength. Whatsmore, regular practice of this exercise also helps lower the risk of back injury and back pain.
If you have tried ab twists and it has not shown any result, then it’s time you review your form while performing this exercise. Doing a certain number of reps is not always going to give you results. Instead, doing fewer reps with the right technique and form is what will help. In this video fitness trainer, Kaizzad Capadia who is also the co-founder of K11 Fitness Academy demonstrates steps to perform the twists the right way.But that’s not all, he also shows you how to correct the error and see maximum results from your workout routine.
Tip: If abs are your weak point, then work them out three days a week. Don’t do it every day as the muscles need some time to recover. Combine your strength training with a cardio routine to get flat abs. Also, follow a proper diet to get washboard abs. You can lose belly fat with exercises by Hrithik’s trainer Kris Gethin.
