Get Wicked Hard Abs

Guest Post by Alexandra Williams, MA, from Fun and Fit

I’ve been teaching group fitness for over 25 years, and love to find new ways to torment help my students get strong, good-looking abs.

First of all, they could just draw on a HAWT 6-pack like this guy did:

If that doesn’t work (and it doesn’t), time to move on to actual exercises. One of my favorites is one my twin sister created. I call it “Wicked Hard Abs” because it really is hard to do correctly. It could also be called “The Self-Induced Wedgie.” You’ll see why when you try it. This move targets the obliques, rectus abdominis and transversus.

Sit with bent knees and arms tight across your chest. Take your feet off the floor and twist your body in a full circle clockwise, then counterclockwise. You’ll be tempted to use your arms or torso to “fling” yourself around, but avoid temptation! If you get stuck, you can walk the feet around – you’ll still get the benefits of the move.

If it seems easy, you are probably doing it wrong. If it takes you about 5 minutes to get all the way around in both directions the first time you try it, then you’re probably doing it correctly. If you aren’t sure if you’re doing it wrong or right, put your hands behind your back, then try it again.

I’d love to know your opinion of this move! Could you do it and keep your feet off the ground and arms glued to your chest?
