Your Ab Workouts, Are You Going Too Fast?

Your Ab Workouts, Are You Going Too Fast?
Most people especially beginners thought that ab workouts are all about quantity of crunches and not the quality of each movement. In fact, if you perform the crunches slower, it can use more muscle fibers.

You should take your time on each repetition. The slower you move, the less momentum you have and the more work your ab muscles are accomplishing. You should maintain your speed (so that you will be able to stop) at any point during each repetition.

Here's a rule of thumb: Three seconds in both directions work great.

During each repetition of your ab workouts there are two different parts. The first part is called the positive "up phase" of the repetition. The second part is the negative or the "down phase" of the repetition. It is important to come down slowly on the negative phase. Moving slowly on the negative phase will chisel that abs fast.

If you are too fatigued to do the negative portion of the three-second repetition, maintaining absolute control of the movement, then you are done with the ab workout for the day.


You should focus on doing each repetition correctly, not on how many repetitions you should do. Your ab muscles will react when you emphasis good form at a controlled speed.

Cheating on your repetition slows your progress and leads to possible injury. Or maybe it could even cause permanent injuries which could affect you for the rest of your life. Don't even compare how many repetitions you can do with someone else's because it could get you distracted and forget how important quality is.

Lastly, it's a good idea to take things slightly slower sometimes. Short and frequent intervals between sets of ab workouts are important so that your abs don't burn out too early in your exercise regime. During your rest period, blood delivers oxygen and energy to your abs (which carries away waste products as well).

Make sure that you rest no longer than a minute between sets of an exercise though. If you rest too long, you may lose "the pump" and decide to call it a day
