If you have finally come to a decision about losing the unwanted pounds present in your body, then get ready to witness the amazing change that will soon take place in body structure. Now, before that, you need to know some necessary things regarding your muscles, which you are going to shape and tone.
It isn’t a solo performance but a group show when it comes to the muscles.
The centre section of the body is comprised of muscles of four various types and their functioning and toning process is different from each other. They are namely the outer or external oblique, inner or internal oblique, transverses abdominis and the rectus abdominis.
The nearest muscle to the outer open area or the surface of the body is the pack of rectus abdominis and this is the muscle, which has to be toned and shaped to obtain a hot six-pack.
The bottommost muscles are the pack of transverses abdominis and underlying the rest of the three types. Breathing can be controlled, thanks to these muscles and it does the important function of forcing out the air.
When you get involved in sports like taekwondo and karate, which involves quick and short powerful bursts of energy, these muscles play the vital role and they increase the performance when they are properly toned and strengthened.
The internal and external oblique muscles cross each other or rather run diagonally driving the route from the rib cage right down to the point where the areas of pubic bones lie on both the sides of the body and when we twist and turn sideways every time, each of the pairs, both internal and external work continuously and simultaneously.
If these muscles are well toned, then one can excel in games like tennis and golf where the twisting of the body is required.
Injuries and Sprains should be kept at a distance
Injuries and sprains of muscles will provide a major hindrance to the daily workout schedule, apart from the pleasure of pain and suffering it provides. Then one has to give up hope on his/her sexy six packs.
The rest of the muscles won’t be of any use when you sprain or damage some of your muscles. A good amount of abdominal stretching prevents this from happening if it is done once before the workout.
It is better if you give a slow start and then accelerate until you come across your point of comfort. Now I believe you will definitely admit that in order to gain energy, cleansing your body, putting up good health, losing weight and looking young are the best possible ways.
