2 Weeks to Tighter, Flatter Abs: Killer Resistance Band Workout



2 Weeks to Tighter, Flatter Abs: Killer Resistance Band Workout

 

If you want stronger abs faster, take your abdominal workout to the next level by including resistance bands to your ab routine. Adding the resistance provided by exercise bands significantly increases the firming capability of any ab exercise, giving you a tighter, stronger core faster.


What’s more, when you use a high quality resistance band set which provides numerous resistance band strengths that can be combined on handles, you significantly increase the amount of resistance which you can use as you progress, hastening your results even further. 

 

 

 

Resistance Band Workout


Perform the following ab exercises as a circuit, moving from one exercise to the next until 3 sets of the entire circuit has been achieved. Also, perform this circuit Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat, using Thu and Sun as rest days. Do this for 2 weeks for stronger, tighter abs and then continue with the ab exercises for 2 or 3 days a week to continue sculpting and maintaining abdominal shape.

 

 

 

 

No. 1 – Kneeling Ab Crunch


This ab exercise targets the rectus abdominis. Attach a resistance band to the top of a door or other high, sturdy object. Get into a kneeling position, holding the other end of the exercise band with both hands at your forehead and ensuring there is a good resistance. Crunch downwards until your elbows touch your knees, pulling your abdominals towards your spine. Release and repeat for 15-20 reps.

 

 

 

 

No. 2 – Seated Ab Twist


This ab exercise targets the obliques and back muscles. Attach one end of a fitness tube at about shoulder level while standing. Sit on the floor facing the anchor point and at a distance that applies a good resistance. Hold the handle of the band with both hands at your stomach and twist to one side, move back to the center and then twist to the other side. Complete this cycle of twisting to both sides for 15-20 reps.


Note: You can also use a Swiss ball to sit on which will increase the workout as your entire core will be used to help stabilize your body while performing the exercise on the ball.

 

 

 

 

No. 3 – Woodchops

This ab exercise targets your rectus abdominis and obliques. Attach one end of an exercise band to the top of a door or other high, sturdy object. Stand sideways to the anchor point and hold the other end of the band at shoulder level with both hands, making sure there is a good resistance at that point. Pull the resistance band down and diagonally until your hands reach your opposite knee. Release and repeat for 10 reps and then face the opposite direction and complete 10 reps from the other side.

 

 

 

 

No. 4 – Seated Ab Crunch


This ab exercise targets the rectus abdominis. Attach the middle of a resistance tube to the top of a high, sturdy object. Sit on a chair facing away from the anchor point holding each end of the tube over each shoulder, ensuring a good resistance is achieved. Grasping the handles with each hand and holding them to your chest, bend forward until your hands touch your knees. Release and repeat for 15-20 reps.


Note: You can also use a Swiss ball to sit on which will increase the workout as your entire core will be used to help stabilize your body while performing the exercise on the ball. 

 

 

 

 

No. 5 – Standing Ab Twist

This ab exercise targets your obliques and back muscles. Attach one end of a resistance band to a door or other sturdy object at abdominal level. Stand sideways to the anchor point with feet spread apart, ensuring a good resistance is achieved. Hold the other end of the band with both hands and at your stomach. Using only your abdominals, twist sideways away from the anchor point. Complete 10 reps, change sides and complete 10 more reps from the opposite side.

 

 

 

 

No. 6 – Side Bends

This ab exercise targets the obliques. Attach one end of a resistance band to the bottom of a door or other low, sturdy object. Stand sideways to the anchor point at a distance that ensures a good resistance and holding the handle with that hand down at your side. Place your opposite hand on your hip for support and bend sideways away from the anchor point as far as you can. Release and repeat for 10 reps. Change sides and complete another 10 reps.
