Turns out Martha Stewart isn’t all ribbons and paint swatches. She knows fitness is a good things, too.
While I searching for something else on her Whole Living website, I found an article and the first sentence was, “Crunches are not enough.”
They go on to describe six key core moves to get results. It’s about using big muscles, little muscles and breathing to see change.
“There’s much more to your belly than meets the eye. Most people target the six-pack surface muscles but neglect the deep abdominal ones, namely the transversus abdominis, iliopsoas, and diaphragm. Not only do these key players cinch your waist, they enhance crucial functions of your body — breathing, digestion, and relaxation — and help you stand up straighter. They are the source of your center of gravity.”
Sounded good to me…
Although they aren’t easy (technically hard as well as challenging), I think it makes sense and trying anything is better than doing nothing.
Here are the six moves:
- Revolved Ab Pose
- Abdominal Vacuum
- Elevated Leg Lifts
- Basket Twist
- Leg Thread
