1. Cable Crunches

This workout is for you to develop the upper and lower part of your abdominal muscles, known as the Rectus Abdominis. The most obvious part of the muscle (Highly recommended).

How: This should be an easy one to set up. Almost every gym out there will have the pulley machine. First set the level of the pulley to the highest position. Attach a rope in the clips and pull the ropes down, one on each hand. Your starting position would be to kneel down with the ropes in between your neck, and incline your back to about 45 degree angle as shown in the first picture above. The next step is to bend downwards along with your abdomen, as if you want to touch your head on the floor. Remember the important point here is to curl, not just go down. You head should move towards your knees as you go lower to feel the crunch in your abdominal muscles. Once you’re down at the final movement, tighten up your abs by squeezing them together for about 3-5 seconds. Release your muscles and slowly go back to your initial position. Repeat for about -10 reps for 3-4 sets. In short, curl, squeeze and going slow is the key. You will definitely feel more burn that way which also means faster result.

 

2. Hanging Knee Raise

This workout is to build up your lower Rectus Abdominis.

How: This workout requires you to use the chin up machine which is also a common machine in every gym. If possible, lock your arms in the chin up bar arm harnesses. This is so you do not have rely on your arms strength for this workout. However not all machines have that function. If its not there, just hold the grip of the machine and hang down while keeping your foot together. That will be your initial position. After that, raise your knees towards your body while still keeping your legs glued. Raise your knee towards your chest and go as high as you possibly can. Once your knees are up there, tighten your abdominal muscles for about 3-5 seconds, then slowly straighten your legs again as you go back to your initial position. In short, raise your leg as far up, squeeze your abdominal muscle and slowly return to your starting position. Repeat for about 10-15 reps, 3-4 sets; but more is always better.

 

3. Seated Leg Tucks (V-Ins)

This workout is to build up your upper and lower Rectus Abdominis.

How: Sit on any straight bench and position yourself so that you are in the middle. Face yourself in a perpendicular position, as if to form a cross when you extend your legs. Your initial position would be as shown in the first photo. To do so, lean your body to about 45 degree (make sure the chair isn’t the mobile ones or is heavy enough to support your weight), raise your knees and bend it to about the level of your neck. After that, release your knees and form a straight line with your legs while your upper body leans further towards the back. Return to your initial position by curling your body and raising your knees to form a V shape (hence the name of this workout). Squeeze your abdominal muscles every time you are in this position for about 3-5 seconds.
