You try and try, but you just can't seem to get a sculpted six pack. I won't kid you, it isn't easy...but it also isn't that hard if you have the right approach.
Abdominals happen to be my favorite muscle to work, but I don’t train them every day. Three days a week is just enough to help me get the definition I want. The trick is to use different exercises each day so by the end of the week, you've hit your core at all angles.
This 3-day breakdown has helped me sculpt my abs, and it will help you too. Try it out!
*Move through each exercise back-to-back. Repeat circuit 3x, with a brief rest between sets. Beginners, start with 10 reps each. For the more advanced, add extra reps!
Monday: Lower Ab Exercises
Hanging leg raises
Lying leg raises
Heels to the heavens/or hip ups
Scissor kicks/flutter kicks
Wednesday: Weighted Ab Work
Med ball throws
Weighted Russian twists
Leg raises with medicine ball
Friday: Full Core Work
One minute plank
Knee to elbows
In and outs
Exercise ball crunches
It's not about how long you workout, it's about the QUALITY of your workout. High intensity training is key for burning extra calories and decreasing body fat.
Most importantly, diet is essential for achieving the perfect six pack. Avoid processed foods, excessive sodium and sugar. Keep it real!
With dedication, consistency and the right diet regimen, you'll get the results you're looking for.
