Let’s Talk About ABS!

The annoying area, especially for women, has got us all up in the area trying to figure out how to work them.

Did you know that you can not spot reduce?  Yep!  That is right, you can’t just do abs all day long and think you are going to wake up in the morning with a flat tummy.  It is not going to happen.  Sorry to burst your bubble.  The only thing that doing a lot of abs is get them stronger.  Now, why in the world do you want to do all that work and then not show anything for it.

Diet people, you have to be discipline on your food intake if you want to see those abs.

Of course, you need to work those abs just like any other muscle.  You work them and then let them rest.  The abs sit in a nice position is which they control stability, flexion, and controls movement.

What makes up the abdominal muscles you ask?  Well, the Rectus Abdominis (commonly known as “abs”) is a paired muscle running vertically on each side of the anterior wall of the human abdomen (and in some other animals)

This rectus abdominus gives us the washboard abs that people for the most part of their lives trying to get.  Diet people.

Then you have the Internal and External Obliques.

The internal oblique muscle (of the abdomen) is the intermediate muscle of the abdomen, lying just underneath the external oblique and just above (superficial to) the transverse abdominal muscle.
