Easy Exercises For Perfect Abdominal Muscles

Easy Exercises For Perfect Abdominal Muscles

Have you lately take a look of yourself at the mirror? Great arms. Nice chest. Shapely legs. Wow. Wait, you forgot something! Yes, your abdominals! Sagging, bulging and in simple terms…unsightly! Talk about wrong proportions. Obviously you haven’t been focusing on that part of the body which seems the hardest to define.


Well, it’s time that you do because there’s nothing more gross than having flabby stomach when you can have great-looking abs. Forget about going to the gym. The time that you sweat it out at these places would be better spent for yourself or with your family. Achieving a flat and muscled mid-section should not be expensive, difficult and time-consuming. Besides the muscular anatomy of your abdominals are actually built for the desired look that you want. It’s the lifestyle that you keep that has contributed to its underdevelopment. This includes the unhealthy food you eat and the wrong exercises you engage in.

Vital Areas Of The Body

Vital Areas Of The Body

Vital or striking points are those areas that a strike will have the most effect on. As such, it is in the best interest of those who study karate to know where the vital striking points are in the human body. There are approximately forty of these vital areas that are taught in karate. The following are some of the easiest to locate and hit.

Front Of Torso


Larynx (Adam’s apple): This is a very vulnerable area in anyone’s throat. It is at the front of the throat and many of the possible strikes can cause serious injury. Movies like to show people reaching up and “ripping the throat” out of the bad guys but that is strictly Hollywood’s wishful thinking. Strong blows can cause difficulty breathing, rupture of the trachea (windpipe), bleeding and even death.

Exercising In Water

Exercising In Water

Exercise pools provide a very relaxing way to conduct physical therapy, resistance training and simple stretches. In fact, they can even be used for aerobic workouts, too. However, the most common reason that people take an exercise class in a pool is to train their muscles without straining their body. The elderly often take physical therapy classes that are held in water because of this reason, and there are plenty of water aerobics classes that can be found which can help you learn how to maximize your time in spent in the pool.


Exercise pools provide a way to stretch the muscles, especially when combined with swim spa pools. Small weights can also be combined with the water workout to further increase the results that you see; make sure they are water safe. The nice thing about water is that it can relax the mind while working out the body, which makes it beneficial for your overall ell being, as well.
