Ab Workouts

Now not all of us are gonna look like Matthew McConaughey, informing the director that this might be a good time in the movie for him to take his shirt off.  Or even Ryan Reynolds beefing up for his role in Blade Trinity.

But what we can do is learn some of the exercises they do to get ready for the big screen.

TOP 5 AB Workouts For Anyone

NUMBER 1: Plank on Elbows

Assume a push up position, but with your elbows bent and your weight resting on your forearms. Your body should form a straight line. Now brace your abs as if someone were about to punch you in the gut. Hold for 30 seconds. Rest. Do 3 reps.

 

 

NUMBER 2: The Side Plank

Lie on your left side and prop your upper body up on your left forearm. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from ankles to shoulders. Now brace your abs and hold for 30 seconds. Roll over onto your right side and repeat. Rest 30 seconds, and do 2 more sets.

 

 

NUMBER 3: Hip/Leg Raise

Lie down on a flat bench/floor with your legs up and perpendicular to the bench/floor. Lift your hips slightly off the bench by contracting your lower abs, hold for three seconds, and lower your hips. Keep your back flat on the bench/floor, your legs straight and lower your legs until they almost form a straight line with the rest of your body. Hold for a count of 3 and then bring back to starting position. Do 10-12 reps.

 

 

 

NUMBER 4: Long Arm Crunch

Lie on mat with arms extended out straight behind head with arms kept close to the ears.  Contract the abs and lift shoulder blades off of floor. Keep your arms straight and avoid straining the neck. Do 1-3 sets of 12-18 reps.  You can add intensity by adding a lightweight dumbbell to hands.

 

 

NUMBER 5: Ab Flutter Kicks

Lie flat on your back with arms resting palms down by your side. Lift heels about 6 inches off floor with slight bend in the knees. Quickly move your legs up and down in a scissor like motion. Continue per your level of fitness. The longer you can go the more progress you are making.

Do these exercises at least 5 days a week for 3 months along with a nutritional diet and you’ll be seeing some crazy results.

Just remember that these celebrity types have personal trainer and dietitians…. rough life.
