4 Common Abs Workout Mistakes
Now for our special bonus, a video about the 4 most common Ab Workout mistakes that you have to avoid. Scooby sums it up well:
The most common mistakes
- The head nodes - When you try to do some crunches but you don't even move your abs you should know that you are doing something wrong.
- The flapper - When people are trying to put in the effort and do some crunches, but all they do is raise their elbows. Once again, if you don't feel your abs working, then you are doing something wrong.
- Confusing crunches with sit-ups - The 3rd most common mistake is when people think 'that more is better' and are trying to raise themselves all the way up. That's called sit-ups, and they are working on the hips more than the abs.
- The 4th and most common mistake is when people believe that they can remove fat by only working on the abs. You cannot remove your beer belly by just doing crunches, you have to do 2 more things: Healthy nutrition and cardio workouts.
