So here's the challenge:

Try to hold in the Static Hold Abs position as much time as you can.

Post your results below.

Kayak Abs

This exercise is called Kayak Abs because the movement you'll is similar to what kayak paddlers do. Actually people that ride the kayak are doing this exact exercise with riding it.

Once you are on that position you'll have to rotate your body from side to side, moving your hips, touching with your hands on the floor on both sides of your body.

Details: Try to find something comfortable to put under your pelvis, without taking the balance you need to do this exercise, and do as much repetitions you can. You must always touch the floor in order to keep the quality of the exercise and in order to make more muscle.

Side Static Hold Abs

In this exercise all you have to do is to stay static. It may seem easy but it's not as easy as you think, and the fact that you have to stay static it's the hardest part of it. First you have to put one of your hands closed and the elbow of the same arm on the floor parallel to your body and then, with your body sideways and completely straight, put your feet also sideways one the floor (one over the other one), and with your other hand in your waist you'll have to stay static in that position as much time as you can. Then you'll have to do the exactly same thing but turned to the other side.



Details: Try to find something fluffy to put under your elbow.

Ninja Abs

In ninja abs, what you have to do is to put your hands closed and your elbows in the ground parallel to your body with your arms making a 90º angle, then with your body completely straight you have to put your feet on the floor, and once you are in that position all you have to do is to raise one of your arms and stretch it forward punching the air, then you have to get back into the position and do the same movement but with the other arm, and then going back to position again. Keep alternating your arms and hold as much repetitions you can.



Details: Always keep your body straight and the 90º angle with your arms. Try to find something fluffy to put under your elbows.

Static Hold Abs

In this type of abs all you have to do is to stay static. The first impression that people normally has about this abs is that they're easy and doesn't worth they're time. Well, first thing, this abs aren't easy because, as we'll see, this abs are one of the only ones that you do until you can handle it anymore. So, to do this abs, the first thing you have to do is to put your elbows and your hands closed on the floor parallel to your body in order to sustain it. Then you'll have to put just your feet on the ground with your body completely straight and your arms doing a 90º angle. Once you are in the position you'll have to hold as much time as you can.


Details: Find something fluffy to put under your elbows and use a stopwatch to count how much time do you hold in that position.

Inverted Abs

They're called inverted abs because unless of raising your arms, your head and your shoulders, in this abs, you'll have to raise your legs and your pelvis. In this exercise you have to lie down on the floor with your hands and arms in full contact with the floor positioned aside of you completly straight and then you have to curve your legs and with the impulse of your legs you have to raise your pelvis about 1 feet of the ground.


Details: Use a folded towel or a gymnastics carpet under your back or you may hurt your spine. Remember to keep your legs always curved and never raise your hands and arms of the ground and also remember not to lie down your head.

Green Tea

Green tea it's a major help for the ones who want to lose weight and for the ones who want to grow muscles because green tea "dries" your body making the fat disappear and increases the size of your muscles. Plus, green tea has a small quantity of caffeine but that is enough to give you energy to workout, green tea is very good to drink before workout because it can replace energy drinks and it will help you to burn your fat and grow your muscles. Try drinking one pod of green tea a day and doing some cardio workouts and watch the fantastic results.

Green tea also prevents cancer, heart diseases, it's anti-aging, it's good to your skin, it's good to your bones, lowers your cholesterol, prevents diabetes, Alzheimer  Parkinson  arthritis, liver disease, high blood pressure, colds and flu, asthma, ear infections, herpes, tooth decay, stress, allergies, food poisoning  lowers your the sugar in your blood and also can stop HIV from spreading.

If you don't know how to do tea, all you need to do is to put some water heating in the stove and wait until it's boiling and then you put the tea pod inside, you hang up the heat and wait until it cools.

Knee Push-ups

Knee push-ups are the easier push-ups you'll ever do. All you have to do in this exercise is to get in the original push-ups position but instead of having your feet on the floor, you put your knees which makes the weight of your body lighter and reduces the push-up angle which makes the push-ups easier but less effective too. This are the push-ups indicated for beginners or for people that are too heavy or have bones problems and can't lift too much weight. They are still effective but if you really want to get huge muscles don't add this exercise to your workout plan because you will be just wasting your time.

Details: Your knees are a very sensitive part of your body and in order not to injury them you'd better use a folded towel or a pillow under your knees.

Diamond Push-ups

Diamond push-ups it's a variation of the original push-up that works your arms and your chest at the same time. To do this exercise, all you need is to get in the original push-up position but with your hands doing a diamond position (with your thumbs doing the lower part and the rest of your hands doing the upper part), and then you go up and down with your elbows turned out as much times as you can handle.

Remember that muscles need 48 to 72 hours of rest so do a full workout every other day our alternate your muscles for the days of the week. You can even do a workout schedule.
