Exercise Instructions

1. Sit on the edge of a flat bench and place your hands behind your buttocks. Lean back until your body is at a 45 degree angle.

Description

Ab knee ups are great exercises for hitting the entire abdominal region. A fairly simple exercise to do that can be done anywhere. You can do this exercise on a bench or the floor.

This exercise is all about contraction so really concentrate on flexing those abs throughout the entire movement.

If your just beginning, you don't have to go all the way up to your chest, try and come up as far as you can and go back down. Remember, don't let your feet hit the ground.

I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle Leon's program called "Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer" The reason why I'm recommending this program is because it is the only one I know of that uses a proprietary software to customize a complete muscle building and fat burning nutrition program for you. The system uses:

  • Body type;
  • Gender;
  • Age;
  • Metabolism; And
  • Activity levels

To produce a 9 week muscle building course that includes a weight training program and custom nutrition system. Check it out here.

I've actually purchased and used the program myself. You can read my review of this program at:
