Strengthening your abs is fairly straightforward, but people often get crazy with ab exercises that end up hurting their lower back or neck.
Allow me to introduce you to the hollow position, which is a very safe and effective way for strengthening your abs.
We begin the hollow position with a very easy drill, the back pressure crunch. This drill will teach you to smash your back into the ground and compress your midsection without hurting your lower back or neck.
As you get better at holding the back pressure crunch for longer periods of time you can start adding more of a challenge by straightening 1 leg out at a time. While you straighten 1 leg out you are still smashing your back into the floor.
Once you feel comfortable holding 1 leg out, then you can progress to the actual hollow position. In the hollow position both of your legs are straight out at about a 45 degree angle and your shoulders are lifted off the ground. Again, you're still pressing your lower back into the ground to keep your abs engaged and lower back safe.
These drills will not result in a six pack, but are meant to strengthen your core. In order to see your abs you must shed fat by improving your nutrition, working out consistently for months and manage your stress.
Try these drills in your next workout and I guarantee you'll feel the "burn".
