Ok, I have been struggling with working in time for my abs. I need to work on them now that I have lost some weight. The problem is I walk about 20 miles a week and don't really want to give up more of my time for Abs. I am trying to get my walking down to four days a week instead of everyday. One thing I have tried is working on them in the afternoon on my break time. Which works but its a pain dragging my ab lounger in and out of the porch at workout time. There is really no where else to put it. So, I was thinking maybe a ball or just do crunches on a mat. Another thought was to maybe do it on the other three days I don't walk. Provided I get to that point. What does everyone else do or any suggestions? Thanks
I haven't tried this while walking, but have often done it while jogging... focus on using your abs while doing your regular workout. You can get the obliques in with just a very slight twisting motion. And just the overall tensing and releasing will work your abs a bit. Granted it's not the same as being totally focused on your abs - but it sounds like you might not want to add more time to your workouts to accomplish this. Give it a try... you may be surprised how much you "feel" your abs the next day!!
Sounds like a good plan. I have been trying to flex my abs when just sitting or walking. Maybe if I get more aware of it, I will do it more. Your right about the time. I put so much time into walking that I struggle getting other things done. But, I do love walking and wouldn't give it up for the world. Just thinking when summer comes. I will want to do other things instead of walking all the time.
Your right on the time. I can easily work it into break time. I just need to get a mat. I also was thinking about getting a ball. My sister has one and she loves it. So, maybe there hope for me yet, lol.
Hey, has anyone tried the elastic bands? I would love to try those also. If anyone has information on them. Please send it my way....
My biggest problem at this point is to quit talking about it and do it, lol.
