Here are two ab exercises for men, who really want a nice midsection that is flat and toned and not bulky. You can actually do these two exercises at home. So, read this article if you are a guy looking to impress the opposite sex with a lean and chiseled body.
Abs exercises for men - 2 bodyweight exercises to chiseled abs
1. Body weight woodchop
This crazy axe swinging movement that's regularly done by outdoors men really works your belly. You see, swinging your arms up and down like you're chopping wood puts a great deal of tension in your abdominal muscles. And guys don't worry about getting those bulky, disgusting looking 6-pack abs. Sure they look nice on power lifters but not on the average guy, who simply want the beach body physique. Toned and a firm six pack should be your target and not the flex magazine beefy look.
Instead of doing a zillion crunches, which I hate with a passion. Try body weight wood chops. They don't require any equipment, very safe, and insanely effective. Here's what you do. Place your hands in front of you and swing down like you're chopping wood. Make sure that you bend your knees as you chop down. Continue this exercise for 3 sets of 20 reps.
2. diagonal woodchops
This exercise is similar to regular woodchops but instead of the up and down movement, you are now swinging diagonally. It's basically the same exercise but now you're swinging down toward your outter thighs, instead of up and down between your legs. This will put immense pressure on the obliques.
Again, this will not build the bulky 6-pack abs you see on most over-sized body builders, just flatten and tone down your the stomach area. Here's what you do...place your hands in front of you and chop down diagonally toward your outter thigh. repeat the movement on
each side for a total of 20 reps per side. Do this 4 times a week for maximum results. If you do just these 2 abs exercises, you will see some dramatic results within 15 days
