Five Exercises For V-Cut Abs
1. Hanging Leg Raises
It is necessary to work on burning fat around lower abdominal muscles to get those v-cut abs. Performing three to four sets of hanging leg raises of 10-12 reps perfectly can help in removing lower belly fat.
2. Reverse Crunches
This exercise works not only on lower abdominal muscles but also on the upper and middle abs. It has to be performed smoothly without putting any stress on the neck to avoid injury. Reverse crunches should be performed in four sets of fifteen reps each.
3. Mountain Climber
This exercise is also included in high-intensity interval training. If performed with pace, it shoots the heart rate and effectively helps in fat loss.
4. Leg Flutters
This exercise might look simple, but it effectively works on lower abdominal muscles. Leg flutters should be regularly included in your core training for achieving V-shape abs.
5. Seated Leg Tucks
Seated leg tucks work on obliques, middle abs, upper abs and also on the lower abs. Stability and good balance are required while performing this exercise.
In order to achieve V-Cut abs, make sure that you include fresh green vegetables in your diet regularly and eat food cooked in very less oil. Cold drinks, desserts, bakery products and refined flour should be a strict no if you are aiming for those six-pack or eight-pack abs. Even if you don't reach V-Cut shape abs, you shouldn't get disheartened as these routines will at least help in reducing your visceral fat percentage that can significantly reduce the risk of heart diseases.
