No potion or pill can give you those really sexy v-lines. What you need to do is commit a lot of your time and energy to attaining them. It’s no easy task, but it is very much a possibility. To be spotted with deep v-lines in no time, there are some exercises that you have to perform. Surprise, surprise — 6 of the best ones can be found below!
But before we start discussing those exercises, there is one very important thing that you should know: you have to have your body fat percentage decreased considerably. This means that you have to perform regular cardio if you want to eliminate excess fat that keep those v-lines from being in plain sight. In other words, you have to brisk walk, jog, ride a bicycle, play basketball or tennis, or dance while performing some really effective v-line exercises on a regular basis. Oh, and don’t forget that you should also make super smart dietary changes!
So without further ado, here are 6 exercises that will surely help you attain those eye-catching v-lines:
Lie on the floor and place your hands under your buttocks. Squeeze your abdominal muscles and take your legs up in the air until they are vertical to the floor. Without bending your knees, lift your buttocks about an inch off the floor — this is what’s called a pulse. Maintain the position for about half a second, lower your buttocks and do another pulse immediately. Perform 15 to 20 rapid pulses.
Crunches are good for the upper abs but not that much for the lower abs where the v-lines are. To sport v-lines as soon as possible, doing more reverse crunches is the key. Begin by lying on the floor and positioning your hands just behind your ears, as if you are about to perform crunches. Contract your abs, take your buttocks off the floor, and bend your knees and take them to your chest. Go back to the starting position. Do 20 repetitions.
This particular exercise is best done while you are dangling from a pull-up bar so that you may have your v-lines engaged. Start by hanging from a pull-up bar with your hands at about shoulder-width apart. While keeping your back straight, have your core muscles clenched and raise your legs until they are perpendicular with your upper body. Hold for half a second and return to starting position. Complete 12 reps without rocking your body.
If you are on the hunt for a somewhat challenging workout for the v-lines, this is the one for you. It is a good idea to use a mat for comfort. Start by lying on the mat with your arms resting on your sides. Carefully, take your legs and upper body off the floor at the same time, forming the letter V. Feel free to let your arms move with your body for support. Maintain the position for at least 30 seconds. For more challenge, try aiming for 2 minutes instead!
Exercise Ball Jackknives
For this v-line workout, you need to get your hands on an exercise ball. Get on all fours in front of your exercise ball. Carefully, place your shins on the top of the exercise ball with your upper body supported by your arms. Squeeze your abdominal muscles, and slowly bend your knees as you attempt to take the exercise ball towards your hips. Hold the position for half a second, then go back to the start. Do 12 to 20 reps.
Exercise Ball Pikes
Already bored with exercise ball jackknives? Then do this particular exercise which is slightly more challenging. What you need to do is place your shins on the exercise ball and have your upper body supported by your arms — just like the starting position of the previous exercise. Now press your toes into the exercise ball and take your buttocks high up in the air, forming a bridge. Go back to the starting potion. Do everything 12 to 20 times.
