HOW TO MASTER THE CALORIE-TORCHING V-SIT PRESS
If you’d rather slam a 25-pound dumbbell on your foot than another freaking crunch to train your abs, we’ve got the perfect move for you: the V-sit single-arm press.The V-sit single-arm press is a practice twofer that combines an overhead media which can help you enhance shoulder stability having an isometric V-sit that targets the abs and also the muscles that help protect your spine. Because you’re working more muscles simultaneously, you’ll also be torching more calories in a shorter amount of time. To put it differently, it’s precisely what guys who want to lean out before the beach should sub into their training patterns. Start with two sets of eight reps per arm. When that starts to feel easy, add another set.You’ll want to try this movement at the very beginning of your abs workout routine. Why? Because of the unique position you’re required to hold while executing it, you’ll recruit a number of stabilizer muscles I your core and back to maintain the V-sit. If you’ve set yourself through a monster exercise and try to tack this on at the end of your session, then your form is very likely to suffer because you’ll be too tired to perform it properly.HOW TO DO THE V-SIT PRESS: Sit on the ground with legs completely extended (or bent if fresh to the move) and lifted off the floor to approximately shoulder height. Hold a dumbbell in one hand, with elbow tucked at shoulder level. Keep chest up and head forward. As you keep the squat position, slowly press the barbell overhead. Complete all reps on one arm before switching sides.
