4 Ab Exercises to Get a Six Pack For Moms to Do at Home

We all know how difficult it is to be in shape especially for moms with kids or moms who recently gave birth to their new baby. And when you finally got the time for exercises it’s a good thing to know what kind of exercises you should be doing. Alright here are 4 simple but effective exercises you can do to get harder abs. And they don’t have to take longer than 8 minutes to perform.

1. Reverse crunches.

Lay down on your back and lift your head and shoulders and your hips and legs with a 90 degree angle slightly off the ground. Place your hands on the floor next to your hips. Than crunch your lower body by curving it towards your head. You should do 2 sets of reps of the reverse crunches.

2. Abdominal Bicycles.

Lay down the same way as doing with reverse crunches by lifting your head and shoulders and your hips and legs with a 90 degree angle slightly off the ground. Only this time touch your head with your fingers but don’t pull year head up. Now crunch the right side of your upper body and lift your left knee at the same and bring your right elbow and left knee towards each other simultaneously. Then extend you left knee out and bring your left elbow and right knee together the same way.

Do 1 set of 20 reps.

3. Alternating crunches.

Lie flat on the floor and put your feet flat on the floor and bent your knees to an angle of 90 degree. Now put your hands at the back or your head and crunch your left elbow at an angle towards your right knee. This looks like the abdominal bicycles but your only lifting the right or left upper body this time towards your knees. Every time you crunch hold down 2 seconds at the top while maintaining a hard contraction of the abs. Do 1 set of 15 reps

4. Lying leg trusts

Again lay down on your back your hands flat on your palms by your hips and your legs at 90 degree angle from the floor, and your head and shoulders lifted from the floor. Now lower your legs only halfway to the floor to an angle of 45 degree. Make sure you don’t go all the way down to the floor since this puts a lot of stress on the lumbar spine. Now lift your legs back to a 90 degree position when you have done that lift your hips of the floor and do it again.

2 sets of 5 reps is should be enough. Make sure you take only 30 seconds breaks between every set to keep enough resistance for your abs. Those are 4 simple yet effective ab exercises to get nice a nice six pack but don’t think you will see results that fast especially when you still have belly fat. But remember you’ll only be able to see your abs when you’ve got a low-body fat percentage (17 – 19{6fed281ec7a8abc92e2b781741b2370631fe85beacf5ac69d09adc3c180ad946} body-fat for women), but even though you’ll not see your abs when doing these exercises you’ll make them hard so it’s not for nothing.
