4-Minute Ab Routine You Can Do Before Breakfast
If you want to have the abs of your dreams, diet and exercise are the two most important steps. However, not all of us have that free time to focus on our appearance.
That is why it is so important to know all the tips and shortcuts that will help you achieve your goals at a much faster rate. Exercising in the morning before breakfast is a proven method to lose weight and shape your body.
Plus, you’ll feel awake and energized the day after you finish exercising. Best of all, you don’t have to go to the gym or do complex exercises.
In as little as four minutes you can increase core stability, strength and also lose weight.
How to do the routine:
Do each movement for 20 seconds resting 10 seconds between each exercise. Repeat the entire circuit a total of two times.
- Glute Bridge
Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
Lift your hips off the ground so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees.
Pause when you’re in that position, then slowly lower your body back to the ground.
- V crunches
First, you have to lie on the ground. Then extend your arms above your head. That’s the initial position.
Next, stand upbringing your arms outstretched and straight towards your legs, which you also raise straight.
The idea is to lean on your buttocks trying to touch (or get as close as possible) to your feet with your hands. Then inhale as you return to the starting position.
- Iron up-down
Begin this exercise with a full plank.
Then you have to put the right forearm on the mat and then the left, reaching a plank with the elbow.
Then put your right hand on the mat, and straighten your right elbow.
Do the same with your left arm to return to a full plank.
Lie face down on the floor with your arms and legs extended.
Raise your chest and legs off the ground as high as possible. Keep your neck neutral.
Go back to the starting position.
Repeat for 3 sets of 12 reps.
