Warming and Cooling After a Good Ab Workout

Warming up before exercise is crucial for any sport, that also goes for a good ab workout. The warming is at least 10 minutes and is important during this period using the correct technique. Below I describe a good way to warm up for abdominal training. It is also very important to cool-down exercises after each training session.

Warming.
A good warm up ensures an increase in body temperature. This promotes muscle flexibility and reduces the chance of injury. Therefore, a good warm up is very important.

A good way to warm up is 10 minutes by bike from the bike, or jogging 10 minutes. Do not force anything during heating, let your body adjust to the increased pace. After these 10 minutes is recommended to stretch the arms and legs.

Stretching exercises.
Exercise One:
Lie on your stomach.
Place your hands a few inches to your shoulders and push your upper body off the ground until your arms are fully extended and your back is bent. Make sure your thighs on the floor while you insist on this position, select the chin all the way to the ceiling Hold for 10 seconds and repeat two more this time.

Exercise 2
Sit on the floor with legs straight in front of you and your back straight. Slowly bend forward and take the ankles with both hands. Put your head between your knees and hold this position for 10 seconds and repeat this exercise twice.

Cooling.

Benefits
Decreases heart rate
Reduce the chance of injury that can occur if you suddenly stop exercising.

Cooling techniques.
Cooling technique of the abdominal muscles.
Pull both knees toward your chest while lying on his back. Now let your knees fall to one side. Then switch to the other side and do this several times. This makes your stomach muscles remained.

Drink plenty of water when cooling is complete. This brings the fluid lost during exercise and water also helps get rid of all the bad things in your body, which is very important to cool because it helps you avoid injury, do not neglect this.

Do you think workouts by video games are effective too? Personally I see it as decent medium, but not for anything more than toning your body.

Sure Tal. The workout games on the Wii are great resources. They track your weight and BMI, making it easier to know where you are, and what you need to work on!
