Men Exercises Routines For Flat Abs

Certainly, people love to have leaner and sexier bodies. For men particularly those who are athletic, having great abs is absolutely necessary. Having flat abs is not as easy as you think. It requires a lot of painful workouts, commitment and discipline.

Contrary to popular belief, great abs doesn't not only require body building engagements. To have a six pack abs you also need to have a sound diet and a lot of patience. Over the years, experts and body building enthusiasts have developed abs workouts routines that can be done in gyms and at home. That is right. There are also great abs workouts that can be done at home with the same results as if you have gone to a gym or had a personal trainer yourself.

A terrific abdominal workout involves the upper and lower abdomen as well as what we call as love handles. In the abdomen, the vital organs such as the liver, kidney and stomach are usually located. It is ironic however that this area is also the fastest and easiest way for fats to be stored.

Let us now take a look at some of the top ab exercises for men that can be done at the convenience of their own homes.

Long Arm Weighted Crunch
First, lie on your back. Position the feet towards the buttocks area. With dumbbells in each hand, extend your arms above your head. Don't forget to exhale when you crunch and lift your shoulder and head off the floor. Next, extend your hands in front of your knees and hold the position for a few seconds. Go back to your starting position and repeat the exercise as many times as required.

The Russian Twist
For this particular exercise you need a medicine ball, dumbbell or a weight plate. Any of the 3 will do. Sit on the flooring with the hips and knees bent 90 degrees. Hold your medicine ball or weight plate in front of you at arm's length. Remember to always keep your back straight. Twist your torso (with force) to the left, extending as far as you can reach. Go back to zero position and then do the same thing to your right. Do some repetitions as required.

The plank is always necessary for a great ab workout. This can be done at home or in the gymnasium. To perform this routine, bend down your hands and knees. Place your elbows on the ground and slightly curl your toes. Contract your abdominal muscles and then slowly lift yourself off the floor. Make sure your lower back remains elevated. Do not let you lower back dip otherwise the exercise will not work. Hold the position as long as you can and then rest. Repeat as necessary.

Thai Crunch
As if you are going to do a normal crunch, lie on your back with your knees up and your hands placed behind your head. Draw your belly button in and crunch off the floor to your right. Touch your right elbow with your right thigh. Hold this position for three to five seconds depending on how long you can hold the position. Go back to zero position and then repeat the exercise to your left.

Gorilla Swing 1
You'll be needing dumbbells for this exercise. Hold the dumbbells firmly with each hand. Stand straight in an athletic standing position. With arms straight, swing it at shoulder level and then swing it back down. As you swing your right arm down, swing your left up to shoulder level. While doing the arm swinging motion, always keep your abdominal muscles braced.

These are some of the most effective abs workout that you can perform even at home. Make sure that once you start working out, continue and be patient with the results. Great abs cannot be achieved overnight. It requires a lot of work, commitment, patience, good diet and determination.
