Let’s just face one simple fact, we can’t be religious to our workout session. It’s really tough to get out the bed and take out time from our fast paced life to do workouts. On weekends, we find many excuses not to take a visit to the long-forgotten gym. These so called excuses come back at you when the dress you purchased a few months back refuse to fit on your body. We all hate one body part which shows our fat deposit shamelessly especially, our lower belly pooch that can only be eliminated through regular Ab exercises performed on a daily basis.

No matter how thin our legs or arms look, lower belly and booty seems to store all the fat around them. It can be really embarrassing as many would be either looking or pointing at your pooch making feel guiltier about either not doing enough crunches or munching late night snacks.

Five Ab Exercises for Lazy Girls Out There

The basic purpose of Ab exercises is to tighten your core and remove the excess fat stored around your belly. However, as simple it may sound, you must be aware that burning fat around your core is the most difficult task when it comes to a full body workout.

Hence, it is necessary to give some good amount of time for these amazing lower abdominal exercises to work on your body.

So girls, let’s get to these magical Ab Exercises one by one:

Ab Exercise #1 – Toe Touch Crunch:

Toe Touch Crunch is one of the simplest ab exercises that is included in many boot camps and yoga classes. Toe touch crunch not only targets your core, but also a great workout to tone your leg and shoulder muscles. You can perform this exercise while lying down on a soft surface or bed. To do toe touch crunches, lie down on your back, hands extended above your head. Inhale and extend arms and legs towards the ceiling.  Exhale slowly towards the start position. Repeat this for at least 15 times in 3 sets.

Ab Exercise #2 – Crisscross Crunches:

If your aim is to get six pack Ab, then doing crisscross crunches is very important as it is one of those Ab exercises that targets your rectus abdominis and oblique’s muscles effectively. You can do crisscross crunch while watching TV or texting your friend. Just lie down on a soft surface, bend your knees to form a right angle such that your shins are parallel with the floor. Now, raise your torso, place your hands behind your neck for support and exhale slowly by twisting your body so that your right elbow touches the left knee. Inhale and repeat the same to the opposite side of the body. Do 15 repetitions of 3 sets to get toned upper Ab.

Ab Exercise #3 – Wide Leg Cross Sit-ups:

This exercise is more like an advanced version of basic crunch. In wide leg cross sit-ups, you need to lift your body with the help of core muscles. If you want to melt your love handles or attack your belly fat, then doing wide leg cross sit ups can do wonders on you. Lie down flat on your back, tighten your stomach and use all your core strength to push your body forward to touch your right arm to left toe. Return to starting position and repeat this on the other side. Do 15 repetitions of 3 sets, to slowly increase your core strength and burn abdominal fat.

Ab Exercise #4 – Leg Raises:

 It might look like a very easy exercise to do but can make your lower abdomen muscles burn like hell. Leg raises are easy to do and can be practiced while you lie down to rest or sitting in front of the TV. Wish to make your lower belly disappear, then do leg raises every day to make that happen. Lie down flat on your back, legs straight in front of you. Place both the palms on your side and raise your legs to 90-degree angle. Make sure your knees are locked, hold for breath and come down to starting position. Make sure you do this for 15 repetitions of 3 sets.

Ab Exercise #5 – Plank:

One exercise that can not only tone your Ab, but work on all the muscles of your body. Plank workout might be an easy looking workout regime, but if you are doing it for the first time, then I challenge that you won’t make it to 30 seconds. When you practice plank, make sure you use a yoga mat and don’t practice it on your bed as soft surface makes it difficult for your body to balance. For plank, lie face down on a yoga mat. Now, balance your body in a straight line parallel to floor on your toes and elbows. Keep breathing and hold on to this position for as long as you can. After a few seconds, you might notice a slight tremble on your core and other areas. This indicates the weaken muscles of a particular region. Practicing Plank for a minute on a daily basis can definitely tighten all the muscles of your body.

Over to you!

All of you need is sheer determination and will power to get out of your sweet couch and spend some time to worship your body by following some effective workout regimes. These Ab exercises are actually a fun way to burn your belly fat without doing much of the movement. Still, for faster results, make sure you practice cardio and weight training exercises for at least 5 days a week for faster results.
