Weighted Curls with Medicine Ball
In order to perform Weighted Curls with Medicine Ball, one must, quite obviously, own or have access to a medicine ball. A medicine ball, for those who do not know, is a small weighted ball that can be used in a variety of fitness applications. Performing Weighted Curls with a Medicine Ball is considered one of many ways to help flatten belly regions by strengthening the abdominal muscles and burning calories.
Again, to perform Weighted Curls with a Medicine Ball one must gain access to a medicine ball of his or her desired weight. The individual simply lies on the floor in a normal crunch position with back flat and knees bent. Holding the medicine ball on his or her chest, the individual contracts the abdominal and lower back muscles, so as to flatten the small of the back. Then he or she performs a normal crunch, lifting the shoulder blades just a few inches off the floor and holding this position for a two count. He or she then slowly lowers the upper body back to the ground. Repeating the Weighted Curls with a Medicine Ball over and over again could be an effective way to tone and flatten belly muscles, especially since it is said that the weight of the medicine ball makes a normal crunch even more difficult.
