Build Abs

Abdominal Crunch:

You need not use heavy weights for abdominal exercises. Most of the abdominal exercises do not require weights. Just lie down on your back and place your legs on the wall so that they are in a good position. Keep your legs and hips in a 90-degree position.  Then put some stress on your abdomen and tighten it gradually. Try to lift your head and shoulder towards your knee. Repeat this move until you are comfortable with it.


The bridge is another simple exercise wherein you have to lie down on your back. Keep your foot in such a way that it is touching the ground, by bending it to 45 degrees. Rest your arms on the ground without giving any force to them. Now, raise your hips slightly away from the ground. This action tightens your abdomen and will help burn excess fat burn and enhance muscle growth.

Double Leg Abdominal Press:

You have to assume a position similar to the bridge exercise. Raise your legs and touch them with your palms. When you raise your legs, maximum effort will fall on the abdomen and tighten it. You can also perform this exercise by raising one leg at a time. The single-leg abdominal press is much easier than the double-leg abdominal press.

Segmental Rotation:

Segmental rotation is performed by rotating your abdomen to one side followed by the other side. Segmental rotation has to be performed in a balanced, uniform manner. Lie down and raise your legs, move them to your right, and then to your left. This exercise for the abdomen induces muscle growth and increases strength.


The quadruped is a very effective abdominal exercise and must be in your routine if you wish to lose fat in your abdomen. Your must assume a position similar to that of a crawling kid, resting on knees and with palms touching the ground. Slowly lift your right leg and left hand, keep them straight and parallel to the ground. Then go back to the starting position and repeat the movement, this time with the other leg and palm. This will stretch your abdominal muscles and make them fit and strong.

Modified Plank:

Lie down facing the ground and place your knees and elbows in a touching position, and then stretch your abdomen inwards to this position. This stretch can also be performed resting on one side of your body. Another exercise for increasing abdominal muscle is by taking the posture of Superman, with hands and legs slightly above ground level.
