The benefits of strong abs are numerous. Proper ab workouts are thus critical, for an all-rounded exercise routine.
Every morning, as you get dressed in front of the mirror, your eyes always wander to your stomach. Perhaps you frown at the slight bulge, or you take a deep breath to make your stomach flatter. Ultimately, we are all OBSESSED about having strong abs.
Many people think that crunches is the best flat stomach exercise. They do lots of crunches thinking that it will give them great abs!
The reality? Crunches will not help at all if you do not combine it with a proper diet and other exercises.
Doing flat stomach exercise will strengthen the abdominals. But if you do not remove that layer of fat on TOP of the muscles, you can complete countless repetitions of ab exercises and not see results.
My main point is simple: you cannot tone ONE spot of your body alone.
Do not despair, because I am not about to suggest an exercise regime from hell for you to get results. What I will suggest is that, you need to combine flat stomach exercise, together with proper nutrition and cardiovascular exercises. Some choose to refer to it as "aerobic exercises" or even "cardio" for short.
Remember, exercising can be done in a fun way!
