Simple but beautiful ab-workout

I have a knack it seems as to finding ingenious ways of building up my body and I found a new one.

As you know shadow boxing is good for critique of your form, well I have turned that towards working on the core.

When you do your normal work all you can really tell is where the target zone really is for the desired core workout by actually feeling it.

I have started to do constricted core toe touches over the past week and was noticing the constrictions of the skin over the abs.

Tonight I was doing the same again but paid more attention to where the constriction points were, thus I devised a way to target the core standing-upright.

All you really have to do is constrict your core-muscles in the abdome.

I will describe the various exercises as I saw:

Toe Touch:
"best way as I can describe it tilt your back off 90-degrees to the rear to start the toe touch"
This will stretch out both your back to small degree and it will burn the whole way through once you start going from down to the rear-tilt.

For your side-mid muscle for the lack of better terms... :
Do a standing 45-degree directional crunch until you can see the ab-line fully-visible.


Obliques you would want to tilt until you feel your muscles from side to side very-slow.


I was doing sets of 5 and did maybe 4 sets and I was noticing that my heart-rate was spiking from such an easy workout. The benefit I see from this would be A you don't have to strain your neck and B you don't have to worry about your back.

If you want added resistance hold dumbbell/'s that you can hold immobile for the duration of the workout.

Sounds like it would work. Might have to try it
