Home Exercises to Strengthen the Abdominal Muscles
​Sport is undoubtedly well-fitted for all age-phases. However, to make optimal use of sport, there are some tips to be taken into consideration, especially when practicing exercises at home. For example, you'd better choose a specious and well-ventilated place with a mirror. It is also advisable to use cotton clothes during exercise to absorb sweat, as well as performing the exercises on a flat carpeted floor. In case you suffer from any health problem, you should consult your doctor about your favorite exercises. Besides, you have to avoid making too much effort immediately after eating.
Do not succumb to laziness. In case you cannot go to club, you can perform your favorite exercises at home, both merrily and earnestly. Keep in mind that sport will make you healthier, and your body prettier. But do not forget to breathe deeply between exercises.
In case you feel dizzy or find it difficult to breath, stop your exercise and perform the respiration and relaxation exercises. In every exercise, try to keep your back straight, especially in abdominal exercises.
Experts have been always placing emphasis on the necessity of the 'right position' of each exercise, to avoid the 'cramps' that usually occur as a result of performing exercises in wrong positions. It is also advisable to weigh yourself every three days (before breakfast), to know to what extent the daily exercises are useful. Also, you can drink moderately cold water before and after the exercise, in addition to performing the abdominal exercises as follows:
  • Relax on your back.
  • Bend your knees at an angle of 90°.
  • Interlace your hands behind your head.
  • Raise your head and the upper part of your body away from the floor at a distance of 15-20 cm.
  • Twitch your abdominal muscles while raising your head upwards.
  • Return to the starting position.
  • Exercise period: two sessions, 10-12 times in each session.
