Purpose: more beautiful belly

One of the reasons why people do more sports is because they want to have a more beautiful belly, preferably with a number of sharply defined blocks. That’s why this month: the top 10 alternative abdominal muscle exercises.

My 10 exercises

We all know the ‘standard’ abdominal muscle exercises, so these are a number of exercises that you’ve probably never heard of (and of which I’ve just come up with the names).

Medicineball side bridge

Grab a solid medicineball. Lie on your side with your elbow under you and your feet on the ball. Push out until you only rest on your forearm and feet. Try to keep your back, torso and neck as straight as possible and hold this position for 15 seconds. Then switch to the other side.

Swissball Crunch

Lie with your lower back on a good swissball, feet to the ground. Provide tension on the belly, don’t let your back get hollow on the ball. Come up and lower to horizontal again. Don’t pull on your neck with your hands, don’t use your arms to speed things up. Repeat the movement 10 times.

Diagonal jacket knife turn

Lying on your back with arms above your head. Tap your right leg as high as possible in the vertical with your left hand. At the moment of coming back, turn ninety degrees, so that you end up on your side. You turn over the inactive leg. Make the same movement through your side (just tap again) and in this way turn back to the supine position. Then via right hand/left leg to the other side. Do this exercise 10 times on each side.

Bridge to pike

Stand in reclining support on your hands. Stand in one straight line: make sure your back, torso and neck are straight. Now push your hips upwards so that you end up at an angle of ninety degrees. Lower your hips until you are back in a perfectly straight lying position. Repeat the movement 10 times.

Supine to fold

Lying on your back with arms above your head. Leave your arms lying and stretch your legs as far over your head as possible. Then let your legs down gently until they hang just above the ground. Repeat the movement 10 times.

Swissball leg fold

Stand in lying support with hands on the ground and feet on swissball. Stand in one straight line: make sure you have a straight back, torso and neck. Pull your knees to your nose and back again. Repeat the movement 10 times.

Arm to elbow bridge

Stand in lying support on your hands. Stand in a straight line: make sure your back, torso and neck are straight. From this position go to a lying support on elbows, but make sure there is as little movement as possible in the hips. From the elbow lying support back to lying support on your hands, etc. Do this exercise 30 seconds.

Alternating leg raise

Lie on your back with your hands under your buttocks. Raise your stretched legs to the ceiling. From this position, lower one leg to just above the ground, and lift it up again. Repeat the movement with your other leg. Repeat the exercise 10 times on each side.

Spiderman walk

Stand on your hands and lower your body to just above the ground (but don’t touch the ground!). Now try to walk forward as Spiderman without moving or twisting your hips, and stay as close to the ground as possible with your whole body. As a control, you can put a weight on your lower back, if this weight slides: tighten more belly! Walk 10 steps forward and 10 steps backward.

Superman bridge

Stand in lying support on your elbows (exercise can also be done on your hands) and feet. Make sure your back, torso and neck are straight. Gently extend one arm straight forward and put it back again. Repeat with the other arm. Then gently stretch one leg straight up. Repeat with the other leg. For advanced users: extend left arm and right leg at the same time. Do the exercise for 30 seconds.

As you can see: many lying supports. I do all the above exercises daily in and around the swimming pool.

Good luck!

Making Miracles Happen in MMORE

Cancer. One word but can mean the world. How many among your friends or even family members have died of the illness? How many more will die of this? This has already been a bane in society for many years now. People die because of malignant cell growth that is made to ruin the good cells in the same body. Good thing that nowadays, somehow, the medical society has finally found a way to mitigate the fast and uncontrollable way of the spread of such bad cells. These new medical breakthroughs may not really be able to provide an instant cure but atleast, they can somehow give a fighting chance to the victims who are suffering from these diseases. They can treat them to prolong their lives and also to allow them to live their lives fully.

Among the medical breakthroughs, we have now when it comes to treating cancer patients include radiation, chemotherapy, and stem cell transplant. But even amid all these, there is still no exact cure. When the disease hit, we are still left on the limbo – scared out of our wits on whether we are going to live or die. This makes us run though all possible scenarios of our lives because by then dying would seem so real. More than that, this is now when depression comes in to those people who do not know how to adapt and keep up. It makes us wish and pray for further miracles coming from modern medicine because you realize that what you have now is not enough.

Here at MMORE, we do not simply hope, wish, and pray. What we do is that we support medical researches that can make developing a cure for cancer possible while at the same time, give hope and assistance to those victims who are already suffering from such an illness. We are able to do this with the help of our partner organizations, our friends, family, and volunteers who are dedicated to pushing through the same advocacy. Of course, no matter our perseverance and hard work, without the support systen that we have, nothing will come out successfully from it. As such, we are also thankful.

There are many ways in how we realize our goals. Among those include driving out of our garage door in Phoenix to support promising research projects that can make the cure possible. Such support can come in both monetary and non-monetary kind. We also raise awareness by going from one community to another. In that way, many people would know what to expect and when is he right time to go to the doctors to ask for a cure. To those who are already suffering from the disease, we encourage them to join various support group created by the organization. In that way, they can feel they are not alone throughout the way. The most horrible thing is going through with this feeling alone and abandoned and we will never do that to you.

To those who are already suffering from the disease,
