Exercises: Abdominals


The exercises in the pics are:

  • Machine Ab Crunches
  • Abdominal Leg Raises
  • Lying Ab Crunches

Some Key Points:

  • Keep continuous tension on the muscles throughout the movement, squeezing the abs hard throughout the movement
  • Do not use momentum to lift your body, but rather a controlled uniform motion
  • Activate the abdominals by squeezing hard prior to the movement and maintaining this throughout the exercise
  • You should feel a burn while training abs properly; persist through that burn so that a muscular adaptation is permitted after providing that stimulus for growth
