How To Do The Horizontal Stomach Vacuum Exercise



Last week I showed you how to do the kneeling stomach vacuum exercise. Today I'm going to show you another way to do this abdominal exercise. I can never overemphasize the importance of developing strong abs. Abdominal muscles should be trained at least twice a week because they're necessary for back support, posture and aesthetics. But what are you gonna do if you're studying for final exams or heading home for vacation? That's where the horizontal stomach vacuums come in. And now you're going to learn how to do them.

How To Do Horizontal Stomach Vacuum Exercise

Lie down on your back on a flat, horizontal surface. Exhale, pushing all of the air from your lungs. Tighten your abdominal muscles, pulling your transverse abdominis toward your spine. Keep them tightened for thirty seconds then ease up. Rest for a twenty seconds then do it again. Do this exercise five times, holding your abs in for thirty seconds each time.

This isometric exercise will develop your inner abdominal muscles, building up the muscle and preventing the appearance of a drooping stomach. Training your abs on a regular basis and cutting body fat will give you strong, flat abs.

That's it for now. We'll see you back here next week.
