Ab Development for Rookies
March 04, 2006
Everyone wants great abs but very few people know how to properly make
them stand out. No matter what the commercials say, you simply cannot do
thousands of reps on their exercise devices and expect to get washboard abs.
This article is intended to give you the knowledge successfully needed to
achieve a six pack and will also tell you the best exercises to do to
According to dictionary.com, the abdominals is defined as of, or
related to that of the abdomin, but the definition goes beyond that. There
are five different sections of the abdomin muscle that need to be targeted
separately. The external and internal obliques allow for lateral flexion of
the trunk. The rectus abdominus allows flexion and lateral flexion of the
trunk. The transverse abdominis compresses the abdomin and the erector
spinae allows for extension of the trunk.
About.com says that the Bicycle exercise is the best at targeting the
rectus abdominus and the obliques. It also states the Captain`s Chair as the
second most effective ab exercise because it primarily targets the rectus
abdomis and obliques. About.com also states other good exercises such as the
Exercise Ball Crunch, Vertical Leg Crunch, Torso Track, and Long Arm Crunch.
Whatever exercises you choose, it is important that you emphasize the
three most important sections that make up the abs: The lower, upper, and
obliques. Some peole train these sections separately on different days and
take the fourth day off. Others just train them when ever they are board,
and some don`t even train them at all.
No matter how you decide to train them, it is very important that you
emphasize diet and cardio exercise as the most important factor in getting a
six-pack. You don`t need fat loss drugs to achieve good abs, but they do
help decrease your craving for food and give you a boost of energy in the
gym. Good luck with your abs, see you next time.
