Getting the most out of thIS WORKOUT
When it comes on to training your abdominal area, there’s one thing you should always keep in mind.
It’s not about the amount of reps you can knock out.
It’s the quality of the reps.
What do we mean by quality?
When you perform each move you should feel the muscles contracting. Your breathing should facilitate more contraction.
So instead of racing to complete the set, take your time and master the moves.
This rule applies to any form of training.
It doesn’t matter if you’re training the glutes, thighs or whichever body part.
Always let the muscles feel the burn with slow controlled movements.
How often should I do this workout?
Well it depends on your current workout routine.
If you’re already following at workout plan but want to change it up a bit add this routine to it.
On the other hand if you aren’t following a plan then do this 4 times a week for maximum results.
If you’re struggling to lose excess body fat, add 10 minutes of cardio after you complete this routine.
