Abdominal training over 50: With these 3 exercises you can create the figure of J.Lo.
Jennifer Lopez also calls this exercise “squat walk” and it is her favorite exercise. You not only train your stomach, but also your bottom and your entire legs. What makes Platypus Walks particularly popular is that you don’t need any additional equipment, just enough space to move around.
In Platypus Walks, you bend down at a 90-degree angle and extend your knees outward. The knees should be over the ankles with the majority of the weight resting on the feet.
J.Lo. shows the whole world that a woman can look young and fit at 50!
Next, alternately move each foot forward and then backward. This is easier because you don’t have to resist the impulse to bend your knees forward. You will remain in a squatting position the entire time, which will result in your leg muscles strengthening over time.
Platypus Walks is your favorite exercise that you can try yourself
The “Russian Twist” is an excellent exercise for the core. It not only trains the abdominal muscles, but also the side and lower back muscles. Therefore, it is ideal for anyone who wants to have a flat stomach. However, you must remember that if you do not perform the exercise correctly, you can get injured. The key to effective results with this muscle training is to go very slowly.
Keep your legs elevated to further strengthen your abdominal muscles
Secondly, you should keep your back straight while performing it. When you arch your back, you limit your range of motion. This means your efforts will be ineffective because the movement won’t target the areas you want to train.
Another mistake that many people make here is moving their legs or knees too much. This usually happens when you move too quickly or have insufficient core stability. The movement of your legs draws attention away from your upper body.
For the easier version, keep your feet on the floor
This exercise trains and strengthens not only the abdominal muscles, but also the glutes, arms, wrists and shoulders. This workout tones the stomach, improves posture and flexibility, and relieves lower back discomfort. How to do the exercise correctly:
- Stand in high plank position with feet hip-width apart and wrists under shoulders.
- Return to high plank position and touch your right hand to your left shoulder.
- Then reach over with your left hand and touch your right shoulder. Repeat alternately for 2 or 3 sets of 15 to 20 reps.
With this exercise you also train your body’s balance
Make sure your body is moving. You should not arch your back to avoid back pain.
The plank is a classic when you talk about training. This exercise actually integrates all the muscles in the body – the shoulders, the back, the stomach, the butt. With the side plank you go one step further and further train the muscles in the middle part of the body.
