Breathing to Create Abs

Posted on May 13, 20

When you are doing your ab work do you think about your breathing? Did you know that the proper breathing technique will help you develop that 6 pack?

When most people preform ab exercises they have a lot of air in their lungs. This prevents their abs from fully contracting because the air acts like a cushion.

To help develop your abs you want to breathe in at the start of the movement (crunches, sit-ups, leg raises etc) and breathe out as you contract your abs. This will help remove the oxygen from your stomach allowing you to get contraction of your abs.

Give this a try the next time you do abs!
