Fitness Tips For 9/22/2010
Great Abdominal Exercise
by Terrence Wilke
Just thought you might want to consider an easier way I found to build
abs. I am 55 years old, and have better abs than most in their 20's.
I am an ex-marine, and when in the service over 30 years ago, I was
surprised at how many large-bellied older marines could do lots of
sit-ups, but - well it was obvious those sit-ups weren't doing them
much good. We were often required to aim to complete 80 bent-knee
sit-ups in two minutes. I always met that requirement, but my abs
never were noticeable at all either. Fast forward to 2010.
Here is what has worked wonders for me: lie flat on a bench that has
either vertical support bars or better yet, has metal support poles
that hold spare weight plates. Reach back and grab a support pole
with each hand - or a vertical bar (used to hold the barbell if one
were doing bench presses) - and perform straight-legged leg lifts,
bringing your feet over your head. Do them continuously, going down
just far enough to lightly bounce your heels off the floor. The
reason for grabbing the poles or bars is that it takes all the
stress off your back & forces your abs to do all the work.
I have found that when most men attempt these at first, they can
only do 25-30 or so like my sons that do train and are in their early
20's. Anyway, I increased my lifts by 3-5 more reps a day, as much
as I could - but do not rest during the exercise, just do as many as
you can (but don't try too hard).
Within 2 months I was up to 150 leg lifts at a time (each day I went
to the gym - doing these first), and my abs were unmistakable. I soon
observed several people checking out my abs in the locker room (but
pretended not to notice - it was great!) Mind you, I am not
excessively built at all, weighing 195 lbs at about 6 feet.
I did modify my eating somewhat, but only cut slightly back on the
carbs. And the best part? These are FAR EASIER & more comfortable
to do than those annoying sit-ups.
