In this article, I am going to reveal a few ‘magic’ spells about your lower ab workout that could make the likes of Harry Potter and his friends seem like the ‘three stooges’ by comparison. However, as any magician will tell you, good magic is all about creating an illusion.
1. The ‘Sit At Your Desk’ Spell
If you are an office goer, and have to spend long hours at your desk at work, you are probably justified in complaining about your lack of time for anything — exercise included.
But, wait… for this ‘spell’ to be effective, all you need is a desk! And a desk is what you do have. Sit in your chair behind the desk and draw your stomach in as far as it will go. Hold this position for as long as you can. Repeat as often as you can during your working day.
2. The ‘Watch What You Eat’ Spell
Have you let my caption mislead you? Do you expect something to emerge from your food that if you watch it will magically trim your lower abs? I suggest nothing quite so esoteric I’m afraid – I’m simply asking you to be careful with your diet.
Avoid soda, commercially fried foods, processed meats, sugar, salt, and foods rich in saturated fat. Instead, go for an edible regime that includes plenty of, fruits, vegetables, grains and lean meats.
3. The ‘Magic Stairway’ Spell
At last, I have given you a caption with the word ‘magic’ in it. You must be curious to know where my ‘magic’ stairway is. The answer: everywhere. Every stairway you encounter is a magic stairway, provided you choose to climb it.
I know it must be tempting to take that elevator and get to your destination faster without working up a sweat. Instead, opt to climb stairs – every time you encounter them — and you will soon begin to wonder why you ever bothered with elevators. You can start off modestly (doing about 3 flights initially) and gradually increase it by a flight or two. This third ‘spell’ will act as a cardio supplement to the ab workout I’ve listed in the ‘spell’ under caption one, above.
Your lower abs are harder to trim. Therefore, if you are hard pressed for time, or are too much of a couch potato for any ‘serious’ exercise, you need to think out of the box and work your exercise routine into your regular daily activities so that you get maximal benefits without perceivable effort. You’ll know you’ve arrived when your friends greet you with a: “Hey Houdini, you look great!”
