How to Flex Abs

Flexing or tense muscles is an essential part of many strength training exercises. It also increases the overall intensity of an exercise by forcing the muscle to work harder than it would if relaxed or at rest. The abdominal muscles are no exception. Flexing or contracting the ab muscles can strengthen them and help develop core stability. It can also help prevent back pain and injuries, especially for those with weak or flat abs. In addition, if performed correctly, flexing can also help to increase the size of the muscle.

In general, flexing or tensing any muscles will increase the muscle’s strength, as it is an isometric exercise. However, it is important not to over-strain or flex muscles too hard or for too long. Flexing or tense muscles may also cause pain, which is not a good sign. Too much strain on a muscle can lead to a tear in the muscle, which is a severe injury and should never be ignored.

The most common way to flex your abs is to lie on the floor with your back flat. Then, place your hands in front of your chest -- either make a fist or clasp your fingers together -- and lean your torso forward slightly. You can then squeeze your abs and chest to activate the muscles in your midsection. Flexing the muscles in your chest can also help to chisel those eye-catching pecs. Lastly, you can try to flex your arms as well to engage the muscles in your shoulders and forearms.
