Remember to cool down after working out your abs. Learn about abdominal exercises in this free fitness video.
Hello I'm Kyle Brayer and now that you've worked your abdominals in your home, you need to focus on cooling down and stretching. Your cool down is just going to be a slow progression of breathing and letting your heart rate calm down from an elevated position it was in before and the stretching you really want to focus on your core, which is your abdominal region and your lower back. In order to do that Kerry is going to perform those same two exercises that we did before we started this workout. Which is her cobra stretch where she is going to start on her belly and then she is going to come up, push and then from her contracted position is going to be her arms straight, flexed back. She is going to push her abs out nice and far while keeping her head in line in neutral position. Now this is really important to work on those abs because they've been under pressure for so long, it's really going to elongate the abs, it's going to work the back and it's going to help prevent injury. And then her second movement is going to be that cat stretch. So she is going to come up on all fours, she is going to roll her back up, really working on that spine and then push down. And that's going to help stretch those abs out. This also pulls on the glutes and the hamstrings and works the neck as well. Alright, thank you Kerry. And that will be plenty for stretch and cool down.
