in Abs Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Abs
Attach a standard handle to each arm of the cable machine and set them to the most downward position.
Get a Bosu Ball and position it in front and center of the cable machine.
Lie down on the Bosu Ball with your back slightly arched around it, and your rear close to the floor but not touching the surface.
Reach back and grab the handle of each cable using both hands.
Extend your arms straight frontward and in between your knees while keeping your feet apart and your hands at knee level.
Keep both arms straight up and in line with the upward angle of the cable. Lift up your torso in a crunching motion while keeping your arms straight.
Keep your arms in position, and slowly go back to the initial position with your back slightly arched around the Bosu Ball and your abdomen stretched out.
Repeat Steps 1 to 7 to failure. Once you failed, contract your abs and raise your torso to a plank position to elevate your back from the Bosu Ball.
Put your arms down to your side in a straight position. Do the side bends alternately and reach for your heels. This movement will focus on your obliques.
Tip: Stretch your abdomen fully by arching your back around the Bosu Ball before each repetition in order to have a full range of motion and lengthen your muscle fibers, giving them fuller appearance.
