How to use an Ab Mat
Ab mats are a great way to get a workout in without having to go to the gym. They are also portable, so you can take them with you on vacation or to a friend’s house. Here are some exercises you can do with an ab mat:
1. Sit-ups: The most basic exercise you can do with an ab mat is a sit-up. To do a sit-up, simply place the mat on the ground and lie down on your back with your knees bent. Place your hands behind your head and then lift your torso up off the ground until your elbows touch your knees. Slowly lower yourself back down and repeat.
2. Crunches: Another popular exercise you can do with an ab mat is a crunch. To do a crunch, place the mat on the ground and lie down on your back with your knees bent. Place your hands behind your head and then lift your shoulders off the ground. While keeping your lower back pressed firmly against the mat, slowly exhale and curl your upper body up towards your knees. Inhale and return to the starting position.
3. Reverse crunches: Reverse crunches are a great way to target your lower abs. To do a reverse crunch, place the mat on the ground and lie down on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Place your hands behind your head and then lift your hips off the ground. While keeping your upper body stationary, slowly exhale and curl your knees in towards your chest. Inhale and return to the starting position.
4. Russian twists: Russian twists are a great way to work your obliques (the muscles on the sides of your waist). To do a Russian twist, sit on the ground with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Place your hands behind your head and then lean back slightly so that your body forms a V shape. From here, twist your torso to the right and then to the left. Be sure to keep your abs engaged throughout the entire movement.
5. Pilates scissors: Pilates scissors are a great way to work your lower abs. To do Pilates scissors, lie down on your back with your legs in the air and your head and shoulders off the ground. Hold onto your right ankle with your left hand and then slowly lower your right leg towards the ground. At the same time, raise your left leg up towards the sky. Return to the starting position and repeat with the other leg.
