You don’t have to work your abs every day to get the six pack you desire. The better option is to incorporate an ab session into your workout routine two to three times a week and cut out all the junk from your diet.
Working out is only a small percentage of developing six-pack abs. Eating clean and cutting out processed foods and junk is the bigger side of the equation. You can’t have a six pack with a high percentage of body fat. Clean out your diet by reducing the number of times you eat out at a restaurant and plan to cook healthier meals at home. Do this for a week or two and the next time you order a plate of chicken wings, the grease will overwhelm you and I bet you won’t even finish the plate in front of you.
Four Moves to Six Pack Abs
After warming up for 5 minutes with some dynamic exercises to get your blood flowing, work your way through this ab circuit, resting for only about 15 seconds before moving on to the next exercise. Once you’ve reached the end of the circuit, take a break, get a well-deserved drink of water and two minutes later, start again. Repeat this circuit 3 times in total.
Bicycle Plank – holding yourself in plank, bring one knee up to the opposite chest and thread your foot through if you have the flexibility. Take your time with this move and avoid sharp, jerky movements. Repeat each side 10 reps. On set two, go for 20 reps and on your final set, aim for 30 reps.
Plank – get into the push-up position and hold for 30-45 seconds. You can rest on your forearms or alternate from straight arms to forearms to work your obliques at the same time.
Burpees to High Knees – perform one burpee and end with four high knees (2 each side). Repeat for 10 burpees in total.
Mountain Climbers – get into plank position and keeping your back absolutely flat, run your knees in to your chest for 20 reps – 10 each side.
