Lifting legs laying on the bench - In this case, the abdominal muscles are working in a static mode. Following this exercise you need to do the exercise in the dynamic mode. Most appropriate in this case will be concentration curls with weights pressed to the occipital region of the head. Naturally, this set of exercises is minimal, if desired, can be made and other abdominal exercises and their different combinations. In any case, you must perform at least 8 - 10 working approaches for training.
I love it when my clients try something new. When they set a goal and go for it! Their excitement and enthusiasm is equal to that of a drug. It makes me want to set a loftier goal and go after it. Often, like a honeymoon, that enthusiasm wanes. The long hours of training. The time and monetary investment. The early mornings or denied nights out so you can achieve your goal. They can take their tole. Its hard to do without or deny pleasures for a goal that seems so far off.
I was always one of those people to accept a challenge. When someone told me I couldn't do something, I was determined to prove them wrong!
Looking back on my life, all of my most exciting adventures and learning experiences were because I was first challenged by someone else or myself. 6 months in Spain followed by backpacking through Europe. Moving to NJ by myself for a new job. Playing rugby in college. Qualifying to run the Boston Marathon. And most recently, an open water swim triathlon.
My younger sister recently asked me for some help losing weight. She had joined a local gym and was exercising almost every day. She had lost a little weight initially but was not getting the results she wanted. When I asked her about her gym routine she said she was spending 30-45 minutes on the elliptical trainer, followed by some core and arm exercises. Sound familiar?
