Guide to an insane abdominal-workout WITHOUT any equipment

by Unik Dhandhi, Thursday, May 17, 2018

In today's world, there are infinite definitions of being physically fit. For some, it means getting stronger by gaining muscles whereas for others, it means getting lean and flexible. But what is the correct meaning of being fit? Scientifically speaking, being 'physically-fit' simply indicates that you maintain an active lifestyle and never giving up. 

Workout starts when you give up

And no definition is better than well-defined, six-pack abdominal muscles. From Shah Rukh to Salman; every B-town star is following this trend. Undoubtedly, intense training and strict diet is the key to develop abdominal-muscles. But as we have already said, nothing but our lifestyle is the biggest enemy of our health. In a world where an individual hardly gets time for eating properly, maintaining an active lifestyle may create havoc in your daily routine.

Therefore, to make sure that you do not let the dream of developing six pack abs fade out, here is a guide to an insane at-home abdominal workout without equipment:

Spiderman Plank Crunch

Start in a traditional plank position with your forearms on the ground and your body perfectly straight. Then bring your right knee forward toward your right elbow, then return to the plank position. Repeat by bringing your left knee toward your left elbow. Make sure that you do alternate sides for a total of 10 complete reps.

Cable Rotation

Stand holding a cable with both hands out in front of you at just under shoulder-height. Keeping your arms fixed and straight, and your abs engaged, rotate your upper body to the left, then back to centre, and then to the right, and then back to centre. Make sure that you do alternate sides for one set of 10 complete reps.

Bicycle Crunch

Lie on your back with your hands behind your head, and your legs raised and bent at 90°. Alternate sides by bringing your right elbow toward your left knee, then your left elbow toward your right knee, building up to 60 seconds. You must try and hold the crunch for a two-count on each side to force a slower, concentrated movement.

Cross Crunch

Lie on your back with arms and legs diagonally out so that your body forms an “X.” Keeping arms and legs straight bring your right hand toward your left foot, then your left hand toward your right foot, lifting your head, neck, and shoulders off the ground. You must aim for one complete set of 10 reps.

So, do not let your inactive lifestyle ruin the basic shape and desired body physique by following the above listed exercises. Stay tuned for more lifestyle related updates.
