Are you over 40 and think that it is too late to get abs? Do you think that since you didn’t have abs in your 20’s it's too late now? Watch this video tutorial with the only 3 ab exercises you need to be doing after 40 to get abs.

There are a lot of different exercises out there that you can with different variations, but these 3 are the . I am going to walk you through the 3 exercises that you should be doing to get abs after 40.

Something you may have seen in my other videos when I work my abs, I like to start from the lower portion of the abs and work my way up.

Exercise #1… Reverse Crunches. You can keep your hands out to your side to help with balance and stability. You can also put your hands behind your head, but make sure not to pull your head because you don’t want to round your neck. Keep your back nice and flat on the ground and contract your abs the whole entire movement.

Exercise #2… RKC Plank. You are not just holding a plank position like you would with doing normal planks. You want to pull your elbows and push with your toes to get a good contraction going in your abs. You won’t be able to do this one as long as you would a normal plank because this is more intense.

Exercise #3… Bicycle Crunches. This is one of the types of ab exercises because you are bringing your upper abs and lower abs together. Alternate in this exercise, bringing your left elbow to your right knee and vice versa. You don’t have to do these really fast. A slow controlled movement will help you work all of your abs in this exercise.

Try to do 3 rounds of these exercises to get great results in getting abs. To shape the abs, you want to work them directly. If you are over 40, you can get the abs you have always wanted. You just need to start and commit to doing these exercises.

Well guys, that wraps up this video tutorial for how to get abs after 40.

      I do one of situps with 10 pounds behind my head, leg lifts or crunches 5 to 6 days a week. I alternate upper and lower during the week. Start slowly very slowly because you will tear a muscle and quit. Slowly work up, try a few more every time. Keep at it. Eventually you can do incredible numbers of these exercises.
