About Rectus Abdominis Exercises

Getting perfect abs is never that easy as you need to spend some time performing effective rectus abdominis exercises that will tone up and strengthen your muscles. These exercises can be performed not just to lose fat and improve your cardio but to shape up your abs and enhance your overall health as well.

Bicycle Exercises- These exercises are among the most effective exercises because they target all of your muscles in the abdominal area. This can be accomplished by lying on the floor while making sure that your abs are contracted all the time in order to keep your back safe. Place your hands at the back of your head as you flex your knee at a 45 degree angle. Once you are already in the position all you have to do is to touch your knee alternately with your elbow which results to a pedalling action. You can do this for 1 to 3 sets with 16 repetitions each and you are all good.

Exercise Ball- Using an exercise ball is one of the most effective rectus abdominis exercises in shaping and strengthening your abs. It involves most of the muscles in the abdominal area rather than your legs. This can be accomplished by lying directly on the exercise ball and performing 1 to 3 sets of crunches with 16 repetitions each set. It is essential to lie with your lower back while placing your hands behind your head. Also, make sure that you keep your abs contracted.

Traditional Crunches- Traditional crunches are the most popular rectus abdominis exercises in existence. It is very simple and can be performed by lying flat on the floor while putting your hands at the back of your head. To do the crunches all you have to do is to curl up and put emphasis on the upper portion of your abs. You should keep your legs bent while doing the crunches to place more stress on your abdominal muscles.
