Stuck in a traffic jam and not sure what to do? You’re going to love this exercise for developing your abs while driving. This exercise works your stomach muscles when you’re stuck in a traffic jam.
What you will need:
You’ll need some fitness bands, specifically these elastic bands. You can find them on Amazon, eBay, or Rogue Fitness. I recommend getting a medium-strength resistance band, but feel free to use whatever strength you prefer.
Setting Up the Exercise:
The first step is to put the band over the headrest. If your headrest comes off, you can put one band under each arm of the headrest. You’ll need to loop the band around the headrest if it doesn’t come off.
Doing the Exercise:
Once you have your bands set up, you’re ready to exercise! Sit in your chair at about a 110-degree angle and lean slightly forward. Hold one band in each hand and do some abdominal crunches. Bring your knees to your chest and lock them under the steering wheel. Crunch, crunch, crunch, and you should feel your stomach muscles working. Repeat this exercise 20 times and take a break if you need to.
Tips and Tricks:
- Keep your car in park and turn off the engine before doing this exercise.
- The more resistance you have in the band, the harder the abs exercise.
- You can permanently leave the bands in your car, so you’re always ready for a quick workout when stuck in traffic, and you will end up having really super abs!
This is such an easy exercise, and it really works. The next time you’re stuck in a traffic jam, you can work on your abs instead of being bored. Give it a try and see how it works for you.
