May is officially abs month at Forest Vance Training, Inc. We’ll be smoking your abs all month – and with swimsuit season right around the corner, there’s no better time than now to get it going!!
Here are three tips to help you maximize your efforts:
1. Dedicate yourself for the next 30 days
While we’re going to focus on hitting your abs at the gym, your diet plays a huge role in the process. If you don’t know what you need to do, check out this post:
2. Work your abs the right way
You don’t need to do 1000 crunches a day. It’s about quality over quantity. Planks, Hanging Leg Raises, and believe it or not, old-school Sit Ups, are all great exercises. The key is to make sure you’re using perfect form and getting all you can out of each rep. Check out this article:
3. Train the rest of your body, too
You’re not just working your abs when you’re doing ab-specific exericses, like crunches or sit ups.
‘Functional-training’ – body weight exercises, free weights, kettlebells – are all excellent ways to work
So get fired up for May! It’s abs month!
