• Mini Workouts 26.02.2011 Comments Off on Free Ab Workout Routine Tips To Obtaining Abs

    So you’re starting to notice the pants are a little tighter, or it’s getting harder to see your toes. Whatever the reason is, don’t sweat it. It’s NORMAL.

    I’m not writing this to make you feel guilty and cut all of your bad habits. On the contrary, I want to let you know it’s fine, and that there are little things throughout the day you can do to increase your overall health, and in turn, lose weight AND develop your mid section.

    The program we designed goes into more detail, but we know tips help, so we’ll sum it up for you throughout this article!

    So what’s the hardest part about working out…finding time? Keeping it interesting? Lack of knowledge?

    How do you keep it exciting?

    Well, first of all, you need to start by setting easy to achieve realistic goals. We all know why goals are important, but if you don’t have goals, you will stray from your original enthusiasm as time goes by.

    Part of the excitment comes from reaching your goals, so start safe. The other exciting part starts when you begin to see results. But we’ll get more challenging later on.

    Also, when you get into a routine, you feel better every time you do your exercises (and they’ll get easier and easier)…It’s really quite addicting….And in some cases it helps with our everyday aches and pains. (ie: if you have trouble sleeping, exercise will likely help you sleep better.)

    Most people are under the impression, to get any type of ab workout, you need to be lying on your back, right? WRONG!

    You can contract your abs and do standing crunches (and sideway oblique crunches) any place, and if you combine this with activities you do throughout the day (walking up and down stairs, carrying groceries, while your are the computer) you will actually be able to develop ab muscles anytime.

    Ok maybe it isn’t as effective as concentrated ab exercises, but it helps big time. It will also compliment the ab exercises you already do (or are going to start!).

    We have a start, lets move on!

    The ‘Big 3’ in ab exercise.

    Time to start reinforcing what you already know into your brain. If you want to get in shape, you need to do all of these.

    Number 1 – DIET

    Number 2 – CARDIO

    Number 3 – AB SCULPTING

    Believe it or not, the order of these is the biggest part when having a beautiful stomach. So for the first step on your routine…Learn to eat better! The pounds will melt off once you start eating right.

    The second step: manage cardio at least 3x into your week. Since you will be losing/maintaining weight after you change your diet, you will amplify the process by increasing your heart rat and burning fat off of your tissues! Which will result in seeing your abs quicker.

    And the last step which you can alternate with your cardio days is: Ab sculpting. The term should be self-explanatory so lets get on to the exercises!

    **Please understand these are my opinions on effective exercises. I’ve read some great articles and some low quality materials on the internet, and out of everything, I’ve found these to be best.

    Bicycle kick – Lay on your back and alternately touch your elbows to your opposite knee. I’m not going to go into too much details as you all should know what this looks like (If not, email us), but these are extremely effective for your entire stomach, and have been voted the most effective stomach exercise you can do (Whether that sentence is true is fictional, but I HAVE heard that, and I believe it!)

    V-Sits – Lay on your back with your hands overstretched above your head, and with your butt on the floor and your upper and lower body relatively straight, you contract your abs and touch your toes so your body looks like a V from the side. In sets of 10-15, these are incredibly effective, but also quite difficult. Do it with bent legs when starting off.

    Reverse crunches – These are great for your abs. You lay on your back, and in a nutshell, have your feet/legs up reaching for the ceiling…Your goal is to get your butt/lower back off the ground, then lower it back down. You can have your arms stretch down your sides to give you stability.

    These are three of the more effective exercises I recommend, and the great thing about them is they can be done anywhere.

    Get creative with your exercises, remember that your muslces love change, so alternate these with other well known ab exercises, and I guarantee once you see the slightest results, you will want to continue down the same path.

  • So are you obese and everyone is making fun of you behind your back instead of giving you weight loss tips? Or is it that because of your obesity you are suffering from disorders like high blood pressure, diabetes, gout problems and gall bladder problems. If this is the case then you need a few weight loss tips. The following weight loss tips will help you a lot in following a direction in losing your weight.

    The first and the foremost weight loss tip is that you should be immensely motivated to lose weight. Do not believe in people who promise to give you weight loss tips thatll help you to lose enormous weights in a matter of a few days. I can promise you that these weight loss tips will do no more than harm your body. Remember, losing weight is a mind game where many people have bogged down in a few weeks because they did not follow the weight loss tips properly or were given incorrect weight loss tips. Also it is necessary to set realistic goals once you have the weight loss tips. Goals that you can achieve successfully. Many people starve themselves in order to lose quickly. But starving oneself can do more harm as you tend to gain weight quickly afterwards.

    A perfect combination of diet and exercise is one of the best weight loss tips that you can ever give someone. Another weight loss tip is that you should avoid fatty, high sugar and oily foods at all costs. This is because these types of foods are the main culprits in building up fat in your body which becomes difficult to burn later. Do eat more of raw vegetables, fresh fruits and salads that are low in fat but high in nutrition value is one of the other most common and easy to follow weight loss tip. Also avoid alcohol and fruit juices high in sugar at all costs. In case of best weight loss tips regarding exercises one should start with light cardiovascular exercises lie stationary cycle, walking and running and then move on to heavier exercises like weight training and weight lifting. Exercising builds up your bodys metabolism and helps to keep your body in shape. Exercise also helps you to burn the fat in your body and improves the bodys resistance to diseases.

    Another best weight loss tip that I can think of is that you should follow a particular weight loss program recommended by your dietician. A weight loss program mentions what you should have everyday in the week and provides you with weekly weight loss tips. The weight loss program should be repeated at the beginning of another week. Your dietician might include a set of exercises to be done by you everyday in the weight loss program.

  • Weight loss is necessary for those people who are suffering from obesity and other related disorders. Many people dont pay attention to their weight gain in spite of knowing the disorders related to excessive weight. It is only when one of the several disorders like high blood pressure, diabetes or a heart attack strikes that people finally go for a weight loss program. Always remember that prevention is better than cure and hence we should always keep a check on our weight and should lose weight as soon as we cross our fixed limit.

    It is very difficult to go about weight loss for a variety of reasons. Following the diet regimes and exercises for weight loss is not much motivating. Weight loss is also tough to do at the first stage. Hence many people give up their weight loss programs and go back to their past lifestyles. However one should be motivated to achieve weight loss to become a healthy and fit human being and hence should start a fitness regime and a diet plan as soon as possible.

    A proper combination of diet and exercise will get a quicker weight loss. A combination of both these factors will help you to keep healthy and on the right track of weight loss. It is advisable to visit a specialist who can advice you on following a particular diet regime and also give you a list of exercises to do for optimum weight loss. A different weight loss program is prescribed to each patient depending on the case. You should have realistic goals in mind. You can start with a little exercise and gradually increase your exercise regime for weight loss. Also do not starve yourself for weight loss as it will make matters worse. If you starve yourself you will feel hungrier and then break your fast by eating more and more thereby defeating the very purpose of weight loss. Instead eat small meals everyday at regular intervals to increase your rate of metabolism which increases your rate of weight loss. You must eat more of salads, fruits and raw vegetables for weight loss. These types of foods will make your stomach feel full and also supply your body with the necessary vitamins, proteins and carbohydrates. Avoid fatty and oily foods at all costs. Eating fatty and oily foods will just slow the weight loss process. Eating food in smaller quantities at fixed intervals helps a lot in increasing the metabolism of the body.

    Many people go for crash diets in order to lose weight. However it is observed that most of the people who follow crash diets dont get a weight loss but rather a weight gain after the diet. Also many crash diets consist of unhealthy foods.
