Weighted Ab Twists
Weighted Ab Twists | Nichole Mellison
Work your obliques harder as well as your rectus abdominus, i.e, the sides and the front part of your abs, with weighted ab twists. Adding weight to exercise can be enough to keep an exercise fresh. Create a new challenge to tax your muscles and improve your strength and fitness. Just make sure you’re ready for weight. It’s wise to start with a low weight and work your way up gradually.
Essentially, ab twists are ab crunches ending with a twist, usually twisting to one side and then the other. Easy! Try to maintain a methodical pace. Don’t go too fast. The feeling you create in your muscles is more important than the number of twists performed. Go slow and emphasize control of your muscles. It’s better to tire doing a low number of repetitions, than to perform a high number poorly.
Watch Nichole in this exercise and you’ll see everything you need to master weighted ab twists.
