A good idea is to start with those exercises that make us feel good after a training session, with which we can see that we are working at ease. Now that home workouts are booming, there are bound to be many who enjoy practicing.
An exciting range of options opens up before us that seems endless and with which we can ensure that our training adapts to us perfectly.
That is the case of the abdominals, when they recommend that we lie on the floor, they always indicate that we do it on a padded surface, so as not to hurt ourselves. However, if we do not feel well in this position, we can choose to perform them standing up.
There are some exercises that you can do standing up with which you will work the abdominal area, achieving a firmer belly and a slimmer waist. While you are doing it, it is important that you pay attention to this area to make sure that it works during exercise.
Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart and place your hands behind your head. Raise the knee to hip height and try to touch it with the shoulder of the opposite arm. Then repeat with the other leg. To be effective, you must do it with your back straight and the core activated.
To work the abdominals crossed, you must spread your legs a little more. Raise your hands above your head and hold them together as you lower them to the outside of your foot, slightly flexing your knees.
Make sure that you keep the abdominal area activated, your back is straight and your arms are stretched. You can help yourself by holding a dumbbell.
You can also stand up, legs apart, and stretch one arm up. The other one is supported on the hip. Raise the knee on the same side that you have stretched and at the same time, lower the elbow until it meets the knee. Repeat several times with the same side and then change.
Enter these exercises into your routine to get strong abs that, in addition to being beautiful, help us at other levels. For example, to reduce back pain, improve posture, balance and protect internal organs. All advantages!
