Six Pack by Summer

You CAN have a sexy stomach in time for  Summer by doing the “Six Pack by Summer” workout 3X per week along with regular cardio workouts!

  • Duration: 20 minutes
  • Calories burned: about 100
  • Focus: Strength and tone of Rectus Abdominis, Obliques
  • Commentary: Ladies and gents – summer is creeping up a little more every day.   Go ahead and get a jump-start on tightening up your tummy.  Below is workout I put together to overload your abdominal muscles, build core strength and flatten the belly.  No equipment is required so you can do it effectively at home!
  • Facts: The Rectus Abdominis (front abs) tend to be one of our weaker, under-worked muscle groups so its critical to spend special time strengthening them specifically.  Strong abs help balance weight throughout your core and prevent too much weight-bearing and stress on your lower back.  A flat tummy is also just nice to look at 🙂
  • Instructions: Do the following set of exercises – just one time through.  The entire workout should take about 20 minutes and your  abs will be on FIRE!  For best results, do the workout at least 3 times per week along with moderate/high intensity cardio workouts.  Be sure to stretch (cobra position) afterwards and enjoy your six pack!

    Is it okay to break the reps into sets? For example, would I need to do 100 crunches at once or could that be done in intervals with other ab exercises in between?

      For this specific workout I recommend doing them all at once so that you really overload the rectus abdominis. If you can’t do 100 straight, take a little rest in between 4 set of 25 🙂 At the end of the day, the important thing is to just get it in!
