The best set of workouts and exercises for the stomach are crunches on parallel bars. If you haven’t realized your dream of having six-pack abs even after 3-4 months of working out, chances are you haven’t used parallel bars for crunches, period. I know you’re wondering why this isn’t written anywhere online. Simple crunches are practiced by anyone who is doing ab exercises, whether using sit-up bars or just lying on a mat, but I can challenge anyone, what other ab exercise stresses the entire muscle like crunches? in parallel bars yes. The honest truth is that there is no other abdominal exercise that comes close to surpassing the efficiency of parallel bar crunches.
Why parallel bar crunches are the best for you
Let me help you eliminate any apprehension you may have about parallel bar crunches. This is the only abs exercise that puts your entire body weight on your abdominal muscle, from your lower abs to the middle pack doing all six packs in a few weeks, to the fullest possible extent. Imagine being able to stress a literally inflexible muscle every day to the max, set after set, and enjoy the pain; there is nothing that feels better than this.
How to do sit-ups on parallel bars
- You should be prepared for severe pain in the lower abdomen for the first few days.
- Not recommended for older people
- Not recommended for those who suffer from severe arthritis.
What do you need:
- Parallel bars, either the ones used by gymnasts or the half-length ones, mounted on the wall.
- Good pair of shoes with soft tongues.
- Strong determination to flatten your stomach in 3-4 weeks
1. If you’re new to this, climb up the parallel bars, hang upside down with one bar going under your knee joints while your feet stick firmly to the other bar.
2. It is not necessary to keep your feet close to each other. A relaxed space in the middle feels better when lifting the body.
3. You must clasp your hands behind your head before you begin to rise. Let me warn you not to raise your arms in a fully stretched position like some people do incorrectly. Swinging both arms together generates enough upward force to share some of the gravitational pull you have to defy. If you’re not working against the sum of this advantageous gravity and your own body weight, you’re only kidding yourself.
4. Raise your upper body with no support or nothing to hold on to. It is only the abdominal muscle, the small portion of your body, that is working in this moment of stagnation. It feels like it’s taking a herculean effort to achieve.
5. Reach down to your knees and touch them with your forehead.
6. You have to do this as slowly as you can in both directions, feeling the tremendous gravity working on your muscles halfway. When a flat stomach is your only fad and when you’re in a hurry, parallel bar crunches don’t let you down unlike other ab exercises.
