In response to the AARP Magazine/HEALTH FLASH article titled "Six Myths About Fitness After 50." Myth#4: Doing crunches will get rid of your belly fat. Fact: "Targeting a specific area of the body for fat reduction, called spot training, just doesn't work, says Hagberg." However, proper exercise routine selection can be very effective.
The ancient Greeks applied Latin terminology to name the human muscle areas. The muscle area names reflect the muscle’s design or function qualities.
The Answer to the Myth: "Conventional sit-ups and crunches are effective stomach routines"
Kinesiology principles concerning conventional sit-ups and crunches state that 90% of these routines involve the back muscles and only 10% of the stomach / rectus abdominis. The stomach area would require the Ab Extension Routines that are predicated on The latin root word: “Rectus”- any of various straight muscles as of the abdomen, thigh, neck, and eye. This term is clearly presented in medical text books. “Rectus” muscles must be extended / straighten to be exercised properly 100 %.
Ab Extension Routines represent textbook information that is not being applied in the gymnasium industry. It’s my “rectus” conviction to introduce two Ab Extension Routines that primarily exercise the Rectus Abdominis muscle area.
