The Elusive Six-Pack

Written by Dave Soucy

A common goal among exercisers is to achieve those washboard abs thatrepparttar models inrepparttar 146952 fitness magazines all seem to have. Endless crunches, leg raises, side bends, sit ups, strapping intorepparttar 146953 ab machines atrepparttar 146954 gym. People continue to search forrepparttar 146955 secret torepparttar 146956 elusive ‘six pack’, often without much success. Turn on late night TV and you are sure to catch more than one infomercial promoting some new miracle device that will give you fitness magazine abs without any effort at all. If perfect abs are your goal, one thing you can be sure of, those infomercial products will make your wallet smaller faster than your waistline.

So, for those of us who are not fitness models, how can we develop a trim, defined midsection? Several points need to be addressed. First,repparttar 146957 'abs' are made up of several muscles. The one most people associate with isrepparttar 146958 rectus abdominus, located inrepparttar 146959 front ofrepparttar 146960 abdomen betweenrepparttar 146961 ribs andrepparttar 146962 pelvis. Although it is one muscle, it is divided by grooves,repparttar 146963 tendinous inscriptions, which is why it is often referred to asrepparttar 146964 'six pack' (in reality it is an 'eight pack'). The primary function ofrepparttar 146965 rectus abdominus is to flexrepparttar 146966 trunk, or bringrepparttar 146967 rib cage down towardsrepparttar 146968 pelvic bone. In addition to this muscle,repparttar 146969 internal and external obliques (located onrepparttar 146970 sides of your abdomen), andrepparttar 146971 transverse abdominus (running perpendicular to and underneathrepparttar 146972 rectus abdominus) arerepparttar 146973 main muscles that make up your 'abs'. A properly designed fitness program will incorporate exercises that work each of these muscles and not focus solely onrepparttar 146974 'six pack'. In addition, in order to provide strength and stabilization to your trunk, and avoid imbalances that can lead to injury, exercises that strengthenrepparttar 146975 muscles ofrepparttar 146976 back and hips should be part of a complete program.

The second point is that your abdominal muscles, likerepparttar 146977 other muscles of your body, need recovery time between training sessions. It is a popular misconception that it is okay to work your midsection every day. You would not think about doing squats every day, as your legs need time to recover and grow. The same principle applies here, meaning you should not work your abdominal muscles every day either. More is also not necessarily better when it comes to repetitions. Performing 25 well executed crunches is far more effective than being able to proudly proclaimrepparttar 146978 ability to do 200 crunches with poor form.
