Weight loss: Abs exercises that can make your workout more challenging
Burning belly fat, as mentioned above, is one of the most difficult areas to target. Not only does it look unappealing, it also puts you at risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
So in order to get flat abs and burn belly fat, here are five exercises, that according to Kayla Itsines, are some of the most difficult ones to do:
- Straight-Leg Jackknife - 15 reps
- Bent-Leg Sit-Up - 15 reps
- Toe Tap - 15 reps
- Commando - 10 reps
- Extended Plank - 40 sec
Watch the video below to see how each exercise is done. If you find the exercises too challenging, you can try to do them slowly at first, focusing on getting the technique right. Also, if you're beginner, avoid doing more weight training apart from this workout. You can probably devote 15 minutes to a cardio workout that gets your heart rate up, followed by this abs workout.
You may feel immensely sore after doing this workout for the first time. It is definitely going to get better with regular practice-you will feel less sore, stronger with lesser fat around your abdominal area.
So what are you waiting for? Get up and get on with this abs workout now!
