People exercise often to get healthier, but among this they are also trying to look good. Having a toned flat stomach and tighten abdominal muscles are not necessary but you can have it if you want it. We find out a perfect exercise that will provide you perfect flat stomach and you won’t be needed countless sit-ups.
Why this exercise is good
This exercise is so good that targets all of the core muscles at the same time. With other exercises you are activating only the surface muscles, known by the name “six pack” this exercise targets the transverse abdominals, the gluteus maximus, and anterior deltoids. As studies in the Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise have proven, an exercise that activates all muscles at once is most likely to improve strength, stability, and overall fitness.
This exercise is more beneficial because it works out the transverse abdominals. The transverse abdominals is a muscle that runs sideways beneath the top layer of abdominal muscles. It is responsible for pulling in and tightening your entire core. Common sit ups do not use the transverse abdominals, but this often ignored muscle is the one that can make your stomach flatter and your waist smaller.
Begin with your hands and knees on the ground.
Ensure that your palms level onto the floor at approximately a shoulder’s width separated.
Elongate your neck and lift your head so that your nose is facing the floor and your face is parallel to the ground.
Slowly extend your right leg back and rest your weight on your toes. Then extend your left leg to the same position.
The weight of your body should be entirely on your hands and your toes. Your buttocks should be slightly lower than your shoulders, and your whole body should extend in a single straight line from the top of your head to your heels.
