By doing this regularly you will get a real six-pack.
With an abs trainer you can really get yourself into shape. It is specially designed for the muscles in the midsection of your body. The right abs training is essential for our fitness. But remember, it is not all about getting a six-pack. Of course it is nice to show off a great and flat stomach, which is appreciated by men and women alike. However, abs are also important for our health. They are involved in almost every movement and have central muscular-skeletal function. So you need abs, for example, for having a healthy back. When you are training your trunk musculature, you should also do some exercises for your lower back. Your back muscles in cooperation with your stomach muscles are a very important muscular-skeletal factor. Well trained abs and back muscles also support a great posture and help you to reach your peak performance in sports. Abs are also important when you are doing endurance sports like running. Therefore also endurance athletes should train their abs.
Abs – a little anatomy
Abdominal muscles are the skeletal muscles of the abdominal wall. You have a lower and an upper muscle group. The upper abs are divided into lateral and middle muscles. There are special exercises which train especially those muscle groups. The middle front abs are very important for your posture. They bend the upper body or raise the pelvis. Those straight abs counter for example a hollow back when trained well. The lateral abs on the other hand make sure your upper body can lean sideways. Therefore training your abs is important for the following:
Supporting proper posture and alignment of your spine
a healthy back
a flat stomach
Which abs training leads to great results?
Abs and lower back muscles are stability muscles, and by that they differentiate from all other muscles in the human body. Muscles which stabilize your skeleton need to be trained in a special way. There are three important rules: Slow workouts, regular & varied training. Abs workout should be done slow because they mainly consist of slow twitching fibres. Fast and galvanic movements are therefore not good for training your abs. And you should do workouts for your abs regularly as endurance and not strength is required. Therefore a daily training with lots of repetitions is recommendable. Doing a varied training means stimulating different muscle groups. That means lower and upper muscles, lateral muscles and also the lower back muscles. Each one of those muscles has to be trained with a special exercise. This means normal sit-ups just strengthen one type of abdominal muscle. If you want to do it right, do them in different variations to train your abs perfectly. Our abs trainer is very practical because it can be used in many different ways and so ensures a variety of workouts for your abs.
