Part 2: crazy 8 pack series

Crazy 8 pack abs workout 2

Today I am continuing from part 1. The four exercises I am writing about today are a bit different from the ones in part one and introduce a new challenge.

  • Hanging leg raises/ captain chair leg raises

    –  these are one of the top exercises especially for your lower abs. What you do is you hang from a bar, with your body fully stretched and your feet not on the floor. If your are you the captains chair than you hang by supporting your body with your forearms. The you raise your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor then you go back to starting position (that is 1 rep). You could do about 3 sets of 20 reps for results.

  • Hanging twists

    – well these target your lower abs and obliques. You hang from a bar as you would with hanging leg raises but when you lift your knees, you twist your legs to the left and then you change direction and twist it to your right, then you go back to start position and repeat as many times as you can.

  • scissor legs

    –  this is a challenging one, the more reps you do the more difficult it gets, it gets difficult sooner than other ab exercises. So for this workout you lie flat on the floor facing upwards. Then you put your hands behind your head and lift your neck and a little potion of your upper back. The next thing you do is to straighten your legs and raise your left leg a little of the floor and you raise your other leg even higher while keeping it as straight as possible, then you start switching leg position in a simultaneous alternating motion.

  • Plank

    –  Face downward, be on the floor with only you toes ond forearms being your only point of contact with the floor, try to keep your hips and shoulders at the same level and move forward about 10 steps in that psition and go back 10 steps. You can repeat this 4-5 times or play around with the rep number.
