Get Those Abs Popping With These Easy Ab Workouts

KGS Health and Fitness - Fitness Routines - 30 Second Plank Pose

Most healthy women strive to achieve a flat or flatter stomach (check out our abs workout for women at home). The image of a flat stomach, wrongly or rightly, has always been associated with words like “healthy”, “fit”, “in-shape”, “toned” and “sexy”. The pressure for women in today’s society to have the desired flat stomach , has always been strong.  When you hear females talk, especially those that have had children and seen their bodies change after childbirth, the common conversation theme seems to be that a flat stomach is the ultimate achievement. I’ve literally lost count of the number of drastic diet plans I’ve heard women undertaking to achieve the flat stomach status.

So …. should women really be as concerned about having their shapely bodies? Is it imperative that they exercise and diet to the point that their six pack abs show? Personally, I don’t think it is. In my opinion, society should reset its psychological goals. Instead of rewarding and celebrating females for achieving a size zero (US) or size 8 dress size (UK). Instead, why not promote the sexy desired goal to be fit, healthy and happy? If you are fit, healthy and happy, then, in my opinion you are already living the dream! This is a far healthier mindset to live by.

But what if you still cannot escape your desires for a flat stomach? You are not alone!

What are the benefits of the Plank Abs Workout?

Below are six reasons you should start performing a 30 second plank everyday. If you are not certain why you should follow my abs workout for women at home routine, keep reading!
1. Flat Stomach: Performing the 30 Second Plank Abs Workout everyday will strengthen your abdominal muscles. If you dream of developing abs and a dreamy flat stomach then the 30 Second Plank needs to be your ‘go to abs workout’ as it is an important part of developing your core body muscles. Planks are an amazing exercise for core strengthening as they engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously.

2. Back Support: The 30 Second Plank Abs Workout will help strengthen your core abs muscles, which in turn helps support your spinal column and back. This helps to decrease the risk of injury to your back and spinal column.

3. Increased Movement: The 30 Second Plank Abs Workout helps to strengthen your core muscles (which are a series of muscles in your midsection). When you strengthen your core muscles, this helps you  move and exercise more, since without realising it you already use your core muscles in many forms of movement during daily life.
4. Mood Booster: Plank Abs Workout help to improve an individual’s overall mood! They have been proven to calm your brain and can help treat anxiety, and symptoms of depression if you perform the plank ab exercises on a daily basis. The reason for this is that the plank ab exercises stretch out muscle groups that contribute to tension and stress in your body.
5. Increased Flexibility: The benefits just keep coming! If you regularly perform plank abs workout on a daily basis then this fitness routine will help stretch your hamstrings, toes and arches of your feet, whilst also expanding and stretching all your posterior muscle groups e.g. your collarbone, shoulders and shoulder blades.
6. Improved Balance and Posture: Ab exercises are a great way to improve your balance because they strengthen your body’s core muscles, that support you. As your posture improves from this exercise, your joints and bones will also be in a more healthy condition. Improved posture helps decrease back pain too.
