The fitness routine known as the Superman is a workout that helps participants flatten tummy muscles because it works to isolate the abdominal muscles, even if in a rather unique manner. After we have described how a person performs this exercise, you will likely understand why it is named after a particular flying comic book super hero.
The Superman begins with the individual kneeling on the ground. Placing his or her palms down on the ground as well, the individual makes sure that his or her knees are at a hips’ width apart and hands are at a shoulders’ width apart. Then the individual stretches one arm out forward, say the left arm, so is parallel to the torso. Simultaneously, the opposite leg, the right leg in this case, is extended straight backward, also parallel with the torso. This constitutes the Superman pose, so to speak. The individual the returns his or her leg and arm to their original positions and repeats the exact same repetition but with the opposite arm and leg pair. While it might not seem like it to some readers, the Superman exercise does, in fact, help to flatten tummy regions, because the abdominal muscles are implicated in supporting the body during the exercise, among other things.
