Im pretty thin, dont have a lot of body fat. what kinds of excersizes can I do to tone up more?
Believe it or not, lose more body fat by slowly dieting. That's the main way to get a 6 pack. You dont have that far to go.
But, if you ask me, 6 packs on girls aren't that appealing. (but maybe thats just me)
I would say diet while continuing to work your abs.
Yeah, just keep the dieting going, keep the exercising going, and maybe try out a topical fat-loss product like Napalm.
One great 10 minute or so killer ab workout is the P90x "ab ripper X" routine. Borrow the DVD from someone or download just that part from the internet.
I also recommend the entire p90x circuit training and "keep the body in motion" type of training for toning up...plus the yoga session is extreme and you'll really benefit from it.
This is not THE only way but I stumbled onto it and found it to be a pretty solid way for people to tone up.
My GF finds that leg lifts work well. Lay on a decline bench, the wrong way, holding the top, and lift.
Also she likes to use a back extension machine backwards, where your feet would be supported, and you lean back.
If those dont make sense i might be able to find some pics for you.
Diet must be locked in and you have to have a solid core ab structure.
The leg lifts are awesome, you can also do a version where you lower your legs super slowly, sit ups, typical gym ab machines, broomstick twists , seated bench V style knee crunches, hanging leg lifts..etc.
Dieting, plenty of squats and deadlifts and further core specific work like crader mentioned.
Looks like you are very close to me as well, just tighten your diet down a bit, and use a variety of ab exercises. With enough intensity I would think you could see some nice ripples in 6 months.
By the way...is that a skull and cross bones in the belly button? Nice.
diet. ab exercises.
Cub has some good suggestions.
squats and deadlifts.
SFW and GFH
you dont possess much bodyfat at all, so it shouldnt be hard to "tone up".
I would much rather focus at this point on what crader mentioned, building up a solid ab and core structure (building the muscles within the area)
You are really close I would just do some crunches and maybe use a pilates ball to strech your midsection, to elongate your torso. Keep a good diet and maybe use a fatburner like lipo 6 (the one made for women) to just give you that little kick to get past the plateau. Give it time you'll get there
Continue with eating lean. I often times will add weight to my ab routine and I like using the decline bench for crunches and leg lifts.
keep up the dieting. work high rep of weight training and cardio
And for all three. the most important component is DIET. Get that dialled in right. Make sure that you're training hard (resistance training, maybe some cardio). Add in some exercises for your abs to develop the muscles (so that you can see them). But it's mostly DIET...
