Toning Abs Exercise With a Resistance Band

Do you want to work on your abs using a light workout equipment? All you need is a resistance band. Resistance bands get you a complete workout for your abs and other muscle groups you wish to develop. These bands inherently possess the one thing that you need in order to effectively tone your abs, resistance. They offer good resistance for full-body workouts, and are useful for toning up your abdominals. Fortunately, they can be used much anywhere you want.

According to Live Strong, when you exercise with resistance bands for your abs, you have three main objectives

  • target your entire abdominal area
  • use proper form and
  • work your muscles until fatigue.

Resistance bands are flexible, rubber tubes that come in different degrees of resistances from highly stretchable to heavy-duty strength. They are a good addition to any strength training routine or rehabilitation program. Also, they come in a variety of sizes and lengths but most bands have handles on one end and the other end is attached to a wall or some other fixed point.

“Using a resistance tube boosts the firming power of any ab move,” explains fitness instructor Linda LaRue, who created the Core Transformer class at Equinox Fitness Clubs in Los Angeles, California.

A resistance band is a portable exercise equipment that can be easily kept, making it perfect for home use, hotel workouts, or on a tight space at the gym. The most common types of resistance bands are tube bands with handles, loop bands and therapy bands. Their affordability makes it worthwhile to purchase an entire set, thereby providing a convenient, progressive resistance workout.

Balancing on your bum while your legs push against the resistance band requires lots of ab strength. Below are few examples of resistance band ab exercises that aim to burn fat and build muscles at the same time.

  • Single Leg Rotation
  • Reverse Crunches
  • Crunches
  • Wood Chops
  • Band Rows
  • Band Squats
  • Standing Ab Twist
  • Bicycle Kicks

It is known that abs is one of the hardest body parts to tone since fat tends to set down itself there whenever you gain a few weight. However, exercise routines that particularly target and tone up the abdominal muscles, with a healthy diet and regular cardiovascular workouts, will help you build powerful abs. Making use of resistance bands add some innovation to your workout.
