Last week I showed you strong foundation exercises for your Abdominal muscles. Today we are going to do more advance abdominal exercises. We are going to kick it up a notch.

Bicycle crunch

Start by protecting your neck, cradling your head in your hands. Lift legs a few inches from floor, straighten one leg, toe pointed, bend

other leg to chest. Lift upper body from floor crossing to touch knee to opposing elbow.

Repeat this motion for several reps. It is one of the hardest of abdominal exercise to do but gives quick results.

Abdominal Twist

Sit up tall with your knees bent. Lean back slightly over-exaggerating your posture. You want to twist at the abdominal level in a very slow controlled manner. You will feel your muscles engaging as it is keeping your body up right position.

Seated Leg Lifts

A leg lift really works those lower abdominals. You have to pay close attention to keeping that back supported. When you bring your knees towards your chest make sure you over exaggerate your posture to keep your abs engaged. Bring your knees toward your chest and then straighten your legs out in a V position. Keep your toes pointed as you move your feet away from your body. These are advanced abdominal exercises so always take it at your level.
