How to Make My Abs Harder
Localised exercises that work directly on the abdominal muscles are the best way to get a hard abdomen. In addition, proper nutrition can help you remove fat from the area, reducing the soft parts. The ideal formula to have tighter abs is a balanced combination of exercise and diet. At OneHowTo we offer you a couple tips about how to make your abs harder.
First of all, you should carry out an analysis of your diet to see if it is most favorable for strong muscles. To do so, high fat foods should be reduced and instead those that are rich in fibre and protein should be eaten.
After analyzing your diet, if you want to harden the abdomen you should check which physical exercise you're doing. There are many activities you can do to strengthen your abs. In this article we propose a series of localized exercises for this area but it is recommended that your physical activity is more global. In fact, only doing localized exercises on your abdomen will not work. If you want to get rid of the fat of the area, you must do cardio exercises such as running, zumba or jumping rope.
Abdominal hypopresive exercises are very suitable to harden the abdomen. To do them you have to combine deep breathing with the contraction of the abdominal muscles. You must do this technique precisely in order for it to be effective. We suggest you read this article in which we explain in detail how to do abdominal hypopresive exercises. Work this type of abdominal exercises for 5 minutes.
It is also recommended you perform the classic abdominal exercises. You must take care of correct posture so you don't hurt your back. Put a mat on the floor, lie on your back and bend your legs. Stretch the back well in a natural position, not forced.
Now, place hands behind the head and incorporate the upper third of the back. And now you have a starting point. Now apply strength to the upper ab by moving the torso forward in continuing rapid movements. Do 2 sets of 15 sit ups.
It is also important to work the lateral abdominals. On the same mat, facing up and with your hands behind your head, you will have to make a combined movement of arms and legs to work these muscles.
What you have to do is bring the right elbow to the opposite knee, then the left elbow to your right knee; basically using the force in your abdominal muscles. In the picture accompanying this text you can see clearly how to execute the exercise. Do 2 sets of 15 repetitions each.
Watching your diet and doing these exercises 3 or 4 times a week you will harden the abdomen and have muscles with a healthy appearance. Just remember that the most healthy routine is for you to also work out the other parts of your body, not just your abs.
