Most of us do not realize the importance of physical fitness in our lives. Being physically fit doesn’t just keep you stronger and more agile, but it also works wonders on your mental toughness. It is, therefore, very important to take out at least an hour a day for exercising and gym to ensure you have a good, healthy body and mind. And while most of the people who work out in a gym focus on biceps and other body parts, it is the core that is often left behind. Leaving out core-building exercises not just puts more strain on your back and ultimately your form, but is also bad for your overall physique. So, the next time you step out on that beach, make sure you have chiseled, toned abs. We’ve included a list of four exercises that would help you reach that goal for sure. Here it goes –
HANGING LEG LIFTS
Just go to a chin-up bar and hang from it, with your hands at least shoulder-width apart and the legs lifted up in the air. You can go for arm straps if you feel your upper body isn’t strong enough to sustain the weight. After that, slowly lift your knees in such a way that your calves are at ninety degrees and your thighs are parallel to the ground. Continue holding this position for at least 2-3 seconds and then slowly lower your legs back to starting position. On your 10th rep, keep the leg-holding position for at least 10 seconds before you lower it back. Try to do three sets of these at first and once your body is stronger, you can keep adding more sets to work out your core muscles even better.
