Good Ab Exercise Tips for Mothers

Working out abs regularly is a great thing. Most moms, however, find it difficult to exercise due to various reasons. They spend most of their time taking care of their children or working. This article will discuss a few ways that moms can exercise their abs. Ab training is easy. Furthermore, it costs less than most workouts. To practice these exercises, you don’t need to sign up to a gym. Stability balls and medicine balls are the best equipment for ab workouts.

First off, steer clear of heavy resistance. You don’t need to use heavy workout equipment such as dumbbells because they can drag your progress. Also, they can make you resistant to the usual exercise routines. Try light-duty exercises like sit-ups and squats.

Come up with a schedule for your workouts. A good workout session requires dedication and commitment. You might have a tight schedule, but it’s good to find time to exercise your abs. Keep in mind that there are lower back extensors, front abs as well as side abs. So, set aside time to train each abdominal muscle. You can begin with your front abs and later exercise your side abdominals and extensors. You don’t require a lot of time to exercise your abdominals. 15 minutes a day would be enough for these exercises.

Exercise the muscles adjacent to your abs. These muscles include the transverses as well the low front abs. Here are some good abdominal workouts.

The ball transfer

This is among the best ways to work out transverses. To perform this workout, you should raise your hands and hold an exercise ball while lying on your back. Lift your legs and place the ball between them. Lower your legs as well as arms -slowly. Do this process again for another 3 minutes. When you exercise, imagine that you’re sucking your stomach in. This will tighten the transverse muscles.

Heel slide

Lie on your back and raise your legs with your feet on the ground. Tilt your pelvic area. Make sure that you use your transverses. Stretch your feet and muscles until your legs assume a flat position on the floor.

Knee ball squeeze

Lie on the floor, raise your legs and keep your feet flat on the floor. Take a flexible ball and hold it between your knees. Exhale and apply pressure on the ball gently. Don’t forget to engage your transverses as you do this. Inhale and let go of the ball. Don’t put in a lot of effort. You don’t want to pop the ball.

Squats

When doing this exercise, be sure to rest your spine in a neutral position. Set your legs apart and lower down into a squat position. Keep your butt above knee height. You should also point your toes forward. This will help you align your transverse muscles. Relax your chest as well as your feet.
