Bicycle Crunches-Ab Workouts

Submission question:

“Hello, I follow your blog since weeks now, and it helps me a lot, so I wanted to thank you for that.I also wanted to ask you : how many abs should I do everyday to burn my fat in a month? the most I do the better, I know, but I wanted an idea… 10 minutes…500 abs…? thank you :)(and I know it won’t be perfect in a month, but I can try)”Hello! Of course, I’m glad to hear that it helps (: Just doing ab workouts won’t get you where you want to be. The way you eat matters a ton. An overall healthy lifestyle, really, is where you want to be. I’m sure you want abs for the summer, so here is my advice to you.Eat a mostly healthy diet, if you don’t already. Plenty of fruits and veggies, plenty of healthy fats and lean protein, plenty of water and it is okay to treat yourself, so have chocolate or a slice of cake if you please. I have healthy eating tips in the FAQ>Healthy eating for beginners. Second, your workout. Cardio + strength. Try warming up with cardio for 15-20 minutes. 10 if you’d like. It’s all up to you. Run, jog, bike, roller blade, swim, jump rope. For strength, your focus is your abs so always switch up your ab routine, and do a lot but not too many. If you don’t push your body, you won’t make improvements. The more you do push your body, the more progress that you make overall. Try doing 15-20 minutes, and if you don’t feel good about it, try another 10. Do a plank/forearm plank for as long as you can, bicycle crunches, reverse bicycle crunches, basic crunches, elevated crunches (I like to lay on my bed with legs down and my upper back sticking off enough for it to give me a workout, and do crunches that way), crunches with your legs up against a wall or on a chair, leg lifts (full or just a couple of inches to a foot off of the ground), Russian crunches, etc. I have ab workouts in the Index>workouts so you might find some good stuff in there! I also like hoola hooping because your core muscles are contracting as you move around and it’s fun. read more..
