Ab Workouts for Women – What Should You Take Care Of?

Successful Ab Workouts for women

Working out at the gym may not be an easy task for women. Of course, women have come out of age and willing to take up the challenges. Even then, gyms are filled with men who look as if they are ready to take on with everything…everyone. If you think you are one of them who is worried about it – we present the ways on how to handle the machine workouts for women.

Go For Simplicity

Do not go straight out to the top. Keep your exercises simple so that your muscles get used to the stress they are being put to.

Good Ab workouts when new would be easily be responded by your body. You should be able to find the differences quite soon and quickly. Go for what is called Positive Reinforcement. Track the gradual changes and work with them.

Stay within your Comfort Zone

Never go beyond your comfort zone. In fact, working out should rejuvenate you. It should not make you disturbed and stressed out when you leave the gym.

Workouts, especially Ab Workouts, are meant to relax you. If you think you are feeling exhausted rather than waiting for your next workout – it would be a clear indication that you are pushing yourself too much. Avoid it and we are sure you will definitely benefit from it.

Avoid sit-ups in favor of Pelvic Tilts

The proper way to perform situps is not to tilt your hips forward. Using pelvic tilts helps you better results as long as great ab workouts are concerned.

If you plan to do ab exercises at home the best way you can do it is by means of pelvic tilts. It will work best if you are not comfortable with sit ups. Engaging your abs in the workout and keeping your back flat can be one of the best core workouts for women.

Don’t Compete, but Achieve

You need not compete with anyone else to get into the best shape. The purpose of the belly exercises would be to improve your abs.

Never ever attempt to better your personal best. What is important for a better work out plan would be to be comfortable with yourself. Though the machine may teach you how to be in form, being in form in a hurry is not something you would like to. Make sure your back is pressed well in exercises on the machine.

Make A Plan

Do not rush to the top. Follow a clear schedule to reach to the top. Create a great and best Ab Workout plan for a better plan.

A standard plan for the efficient workout would be to go through a well-maintained plan. In fact, a week schedule would be the ideal one for the beginners. Ensure you are disciplined enough and attempt to push yourself through the initial phase.

The 7 Step Circuit

The 7 step circuit will mean performing the seven basic exercises three times a week. The seven exercises involved would include Straight leg raises, Bent Leg Raises, Raised Leg Ab Crunches, Bicycles, V Sits, Raised Ab Twists and forearm planks. We would advise you ten repeats of all these exercises. These ab workouts for women can be performed twice a week. Choose any two days of the week and do these exercises regularly. Once you are comfortable, you can increase your frequency of the exercises to more than twice per week.

V Sit ups

Want to improve your abs without being fussy? V Sit-ups have been considered to be good exercises for abs. It is one of the best flab killer exercises but can be a little tough to master.

How to perform it? Lie on your back and take your hands behind your head. Lift your body up with the legs. Attempt to touch the tips of your feet with your hand when you are in a perfect V shape. It is advisable to make a beginning with three or more V sit-ups per day and then you can increase the repeats.

In Conclusion

Well, the above tips should be helpful enough in helping you develop better abs. Though the above workouts and tips have been presented specifically for women, even men can practice them to a perfect ab workouts schedule.

Love to flaunt a flat tummy and dress up yourself in a trendy Saree or Lehenga? Nothing can be better than going for the best ab workouts and achieve your dream of making it big in your social circles.

An Open Letter To The Judgmental People In My Hometown

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value.

Dear judgemental, simple minded people from my hometown,

I am sorry that I have never met your level of perfection.

Coming from a small town, everyone settles to the norm of the people around them. Unlike you all, I have always been a little bit different.

I've never understood why everyone always seems to feel the need to talk down to the next person. People love to gossip about a situation as long as the situation has nothing to do with them. For every move I made, someone was always there to bring out the negativity in the situation. You all are always sweeping around somebody else's doorstep when I know your doorstep is not clean. Maybe it is time to buy a new broom. I know that I cannot please everybody and that I will also not be liked by everybody. However, I deserve respect just as the next person.

I hope for the sake of the future generations of our small town, you all can learn to be more accepting to change.

I hope that no one judges your children like some of you all have judged me. I hope that the people that you love and care about are welcomed and accepted for who they are.

If we put as much time into being better people or helping others like you put into judging others, the world would be a much better place.

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value. Pebbles are perfectly round. I'd much rather be a diamond, one in a million, than a pebble that fits in.


The one whose every move you criticize

To The Mommies And Daddies Who Never Got To Meet Their Baby

We remember your angels.


I'll start by saying that I've never had this happen to me and although I can't vouch for the pain you're feeling, I will tell you that you aren't alone.

I see you, though. I see you posting your pregnancy announcement and updating your status after every appointment with a picture of your ultrasound or a video of you hearing your baby's heartbeat.

I see you posting the gender reveal with the name of your baby and all of the blue and pink outfits you bought. I see the nursery pictures you post with fresh paint on the walls and a brand new crib ready to go for your baby's arrival.

What I don't see, though, is something I instead notice. I notice that you go silent on social media. I notice that you're no longer posting the happiness of your doctor's appointments. I would never want to intrude, so I don't question it or ask. I just wait until the next post.

The next post that I see is the hardest one to read and I'm sure even harder for you to post or even talk about. I see that you post with a heavy heart that your baby has gained their wings and then the comment section floods with apologies and your phone seem like it hasn't stopped ringing since.

My heart goes out to all of those who are grieving. I know that there is nothing I can say or do to make anything ever OK again, but your baby will always be remembered. Your baby was loved and they will not be forgotten.

It's OK to not be OK. You won't be for a while and you may never truly be "OK" again and you may never be the same person you once were, but you're strong and brave. You have survived something no parent should ever have to endure and if that doesn't prove how strong you actually are, I don't know what does.

I will never have all of the right words to make everything seem right again and I cannot comprehend what you're going through but know that your strength is admirable and that you matter. It's OK to cry and be angry and feel lost.

Though October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, we're aware and we remember all 12 months of each year. You matter and your baby matters. While you won't ever forget, I hope you find some sort of comfort in this.
