How to Get 6 pack Abs - The TOP 8 Bad Ab Exercises to Avoid (Part 2)

Continuing from my article at part 1, i will be covering the last 4 bad ab exercises to avoid in this article.

5th bad ab exercise to avoid - Machine-based twisting exercise

All these machine twisting exercises are only good for reducing the size of the waist but absolutely useless in burning the abdominal fats and developing the abdominal muscles.

6th bad ab exercise to avoid - Torso Twists

This exercise provide no resistance nor burn many calories. Moreover, twisting does not work on the abdominal areas at all!

7th bad ab exercise to avoid - Standing toe-touches

Forget about what others say about the wondrous effects of toe-touches. In actual fact, toe-touches DO NOT strengthen the abdominal muscles or the lower back muscles and hamstrings. The action of bending down to touch your toes can unnecessarily overstretch the lower back muscles and hamstrings and stress the vertebrae, discs and muscles of the lower back and hamstrings you're your were to adding a twisting movement to the toe-touch can, over time, cause damage to the joints.

8th bad ab exercise to avoid - Crunches

Crunches can only be effective if you do not overuse it. Over-usage of this exercise ( Doing hundreds of crunches alone and regularly ) can result in pulling your head forward and leading your spine slightly flexed which will lead to hunch back. The end result? A poor posture and lower back pain.

Knowing what exercises to avoid is definitely a crucial step in achieving your goal. Remember that your ultimate goal is to maximize the time and effort that you can ever get from your abs exercises and not the other way round.

You wouldn't want to see yourself to be wrenching in pain and suffering from the after effects of some of these bad ab exercises.
