Strong abs and core affect posture, relieve back pain and change your mood by helping release dopamine, the feel-good hormone, in your bloodstream when you exercise. This Chair abs workout is proof that you can get rock-hard abs wherever you are! You dont need fancy equipment to get in shape, just a positive attitude and commitment to your fitness goals. Im here to help you strengthen, shape and tone your abs all from a seated position.
Seated ab exercises allow you to strengthen your core wherever you happen to be. Many traditional strength-training moves that target your abs – the rectus abdominis, transversus abdominis and the obliques – can be modified and completed while sitting in a chair. Focusing on your form while properly aligning your body can help maximize the toning and strengthening benefits of seated exercises.
This chair abs workout can help to strengthen and tone your stomach muscles, however, to improve your overall core stability and obtain a flat stomach, a comprehensive workout plan is needed. Your fitness program should include three to five cardiovascular exercise sessions per week, each lasting 30 to 45 minutes. You should also include two to three strength training sessions and maintain a healthy diet. Be sure to consult with a physician before starting a new exercise program. Tell your doctor if you have any chronic health conditions or if you are pregnant.
