Well, besides eating nutritious and low-fat diet, you need to do certain exercises to target those abdominal muscles. Here’s a list of some of the best exercises that you can do to tone up your abs.
1. Wide U shaped workout
It’s a fairly simple exercise. All you need is a flat surface. Lie down. Relax. Your body should be completely flat and straight, with your back on the floor. Now slowly start raising your upper body as well as your legs. Try to raise them at an angle of 30 degrees. Now hold your position for 20-30 seconds. (Later you can make it 40-50 seconds). Then relax. Repeat it 10-20 times. This workout will target your abdominal muscles and will help to tone them up.
2. Fast in and out workout
Stand straight. Quickly inhale and try to take your stomach in as much as possible. Try to really push it inside. Hold the position for 30-40 seconds. Relax and quickly inhale again. Do it 30-40 times. The best part of this workout is that you can do it anywhere; all you need to do is to stand and inhale. Another alternative to this same exercise is doing it quite rapidly so as to give quick and fast workout to your abdominal muscles.
3. The side show workout
This is a fairly advanced and challenging workout which really targets your abdominal muscles. Lie down on the floor on one side so that your elbow is beneath your shoulder, your whole body looking to one side. Now slowly lift yourself up so that your entire body balance is on your forearm and feet, and your hips are in the air. Hold this position for 30-40 seconds. Relax and repeat for 10-15 times. Then do the same exercise by switching sides.
While you do these targeted exercises, also remember to do some general cardio exercises for at least half an hour daily.
