|V-ups are an excellent
abdominal exercise that strongly stresses the lower abdominal muscles.
Although V-Ups are an effective abdominal exercise V-Ups are not for everyone.
V-Ups are a more advanced abdominal exercise as compared to sit-ups, crunches,
twists and lying leg raises.
To perform V-Ups
sit at the end of a bench, place the hands face down under the rear end
for leverage, legs should be at 45-90 degree angles from the floor and
the upper body at about a 45-90 degree angle from the bench. Now
bring the knees up to the chest while simultaneously bringing the chest
towards the knees, repeat. The legs and torso make a v-shape, thereby
receiving the name V-Ups.
V-Ups are as effective
for the lower abdominal muscles as any lower abdominal exercise in existence.
But if your goal of performing abdominal exercises is to rid the stomach
area of its fat tissue then performing abdominal exercises are a waste
of time as abdominal exercises only strengthen, tighten and tone the abdominal
muscles. There is no such thing as spot reducing. If you desire
to lose body fat tissue it is necessary to use a healthy fat burning program
to achieve your goal.
