Challenge Your Abs With The ‘V’ Up Exercise
For many of us guys, we go to the gym in order to get that chiseled six-pack. The abdominals is a popular muscle region to exercise along with the classic “beach body” muscles, which include the chest and biceps.
However, whilst it might be high up on a lot of people’s lists, we don’t spend half as much time training them as we should be in comparison to other muscles. Ab exercises are normally delayed right until the end of a workout and are only focused on for about five minutes.
In reality, the abdominals are just like any other muscle group and need to be given the same amount of time and effort. Over at Fitness beans, they have a great ab exercise called the ‘V’ up which is awesome at pushing your body to its limit:
The ‘V’ Up Exercise
One exercise that does just this is the ‘V’ up or Jack-knife sit-up. This is an advanced abdominal exercise requiring a degree of core strength and stability prior to performing for the first time.
One good thing about it however is that it doesn’t require any specialist equipment, so should you struggle to get to the gym for whatever reason, you can still challenge your abdominals with this effective exercise.
This exercise requires strict form in order for it to be truly effective. It is for this reason that this article will breakdown the ‘V’ up step by step so that you, the user, can be sure you are doing exactly what is required of you and reaping all of its rewards.
As the article mentions, it explains at length of how to perform this exercise correctly with the help of written instructions and a video. So if you’re looking to further build your abdominal strength, then make sure to add the ‘V’ up to your routine the next time you hit the gym.
