If you are tired of exhausting your body at the gym without seeing any results, then this article is for you. But you should remember, that some people are more genetically predisposed and, for them, the process is shorter and easier.
Bright Side found 5 exercises that can help you get a perfect V-Cut. And there’s an impressive bonus at the end of the article.
Before you start training
First of all, lower your body fat. You would be wasting your time and effort by doing the same exercises if you are not lean. And, in this case, there is only one secret: you must eat fewer calories than you burn. Nothing more. And yes, it is not easy.
Second, sleep more. Studies have proven that the more you sleep, the more of the growth hormone is released. Exactly this hormone is what you need to get a perfect body and to control your fat level. So it’s better not to stay up too late at night in front of your computer or TV.
After you have prepared your body, it’s time to work out.
1. Hanging leg raises
Raise your legs until your thighs make a 90° angle. Knees should be bent a bit. Stay in this position for a second and then lower your legs.
You can repeat this exercise 3 times (10-20 reps) or until you feel the burn.
2. Reverse crunches
Lay down on your back with your legs raised and knees bent. Stretch your arms out with your palms touching the ground. Let your legs drop down at their own speed. Your knees should come toward your chest.
Do 3 sets of 20 reps.
3. Lying leg raises
For this exercise, lay down. Your back should be flat on the floor, hands on the floor at your sides, and your feet should be together. Try to keep your knees as straight as you can and lift your feet up.
Do 3 sets of 15-20 reps.
4. Ab wheel
For this exercise, hold the ab roller with both hands and place it on the floor in front of you.
Slowly stretch your body by rolling the ab roller out in front of you. Don’t touch the floor and try to get down as far as you can. Then, pull yourself back.
Do 3-4 sets of 10-15 reps.
5. Ab V Hold
Do this exercise at the end of the routine. Form the letter V with your body. You need to stay in this position for at least 30 seconds to 2 minutes.
Bonus: This is how a body can transform when following a healthy diet and working out:
