Isometrics for the Torso are always popular. In fact some of the most frequently visited pages to this website are my Isometric Ab Exercises. In this article I am going to teach you 2 exercises for tightening and toning up the external obliques - basically how to get rid of your love handles! :-)
In my 7 Seconds to a Perfect Body program I teach a lot of techniques to tighten and tone the abs - in fact you can lose up to 3 inches using just 1 of those techniques in less than a week! :-) One of the most effective of those ab techniques is the Side Plank and recently one of my Perfect Body clients asked me about a standing version of this. So I put together this video on how to do it!
The truth is the most effective ab exercises are performed Standing Up. But no gym instructor or personal trainer will tell you that and the reason is, most don’t know. Pilates and stability ball instructors are perhaps closer to the secret of the six pack than anyone else. In both, you are taught basic pelvis and abdominal tension, but they never get further than that. They never get to the good stuff.
The secret to a well toned waist, a firm trim tummy, and strong sexy six pack – is all contained in 1 word - Isometrics. If you haven’t read the reasons behind isometrics and why they work in my earlier articles go back and do so now – it’s important.
