Best abs burning exercises- Guest post
Everybody wants to stay fit and healthy and exercises are considered as the most effective way to get desired fitness. With the power of workout, you are able to transform yourself entirely. Everybody desires for a toned and flat stomach. Working out is the best way of getting toned abs because it targets your whole body’s muscles and gives you desired results faster along with improved health and mobility. But when it comes to workout, many people rely only on crunches to remove extra fat from stomach and belly. While crunches are not the most effective abs workout, they work only on the front and side muscles, and it is very important to target all muscles to get flat and toned abs.
In order to get to lose belly fat and get more defined abs, perform such exercise which targets all muscles of your core. Schuler (co-author of The Rules of lifting for abs) suggests a series of core exercises; these exercises are like plank and help to train muscles and stabilize the pelvis and spine, so you can improve posture and avoid back pain. Stabilization exercises burn more calories as they involve more muscles as compared to crunches.
