Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Do you want a firm, flat stomach?
Do you dream of having tight, washboard abs? If so, you have
probably been thinking about adding an abdominal workout to
your exercise program.
An abdominal workout can indeed help you to achieve the
firm, flat stomach you have always wanted. But only if you
do the abdominal exercises the right way. Do them the wrong
way, and it will take much longer to achieve your goal, if
you achieve it at all.
Here are some tips to keep in mind the next time you do your
Make Sure You Are Doing the Exercises Correctly
One of the main reasons abdominal workouts don't seem to
give some people the results they want is that they aren't
doing the exercises correctly.
With some exercises, having the correct form isn't always
important. For example, you might not be the most graceful
swimmer in the pool, but doing twenty or thirty laps will
still get your heart rate up, and burn off those calories.
With an abdominal workout, form does matter. Doing an
abdominal exercise the wrong way will have little, if any,
effect. It's certainly not the most effective way to get
those washboard abs.
So, before doing a new abdominal exercise, it is important
that you understand exactly the right way it is supposed to
be done, and you try to do it that way every time.
Work Slowly Through Your Abdominal Workout
When doing an exercise routine, especially one you are
familiar with, it is not unusual to find yourself starting
to speed through the exercises.
But, when doing your abdominal workout, remember that
intensity is always better than speed. The more slowly you
can work through the reps of each exercise, the more
effective the exercise will be.
If you have been speeding your way through your abdominal
workout, concentrate on taking things slow the next time you
do your abdominal exercises. You might find that doing each
exercise more slowly than usual is harder, but that just
means that the exercise is really working.
Warning: Ab belts, ab
rollers and all those gimmics don't get you a
flat stomach. Getting a flat tummy is the
results of effective exercises, the right
nutrition and a balanced cardio training...

stop breathing. And this can be especially true of abdominal
However, breathing deeply through your exercises is key.

breath doing your exercise routine, take a deep breath
Stay Safe During Your Abdominal Workout
There are some exercises you shouldn't do if you have lower
back problems. And this seems to be especially true of some
If you think an exercise will cause you back pain, don't do
it. If you experience back pain while doing an exercise,
stop immediately. If you have a history of back problems,
you might want to ask your doctor which abdominal exercises
are safe for you to try.
An abdominal workout can help you get the flat stomach and
firm abs you have always wanted, but only if you do the
exercises the right way.
