Hey Gang! ¬†While it’s FREEZING outside, I can see the little light at the end of the tunnel that is Spring Break. ¬†Despite being 29 years old and not having a true Spring Break, I like to still prepare my bikini body – hehe. That said, ¬†I’ve been digging through my workout repository and have pulled my 3 fiercest, most effective AB workouts…

Now, the plan is to do 1 workout every other day for the next 6 days. ¬†So do 1 workout, rest/do cardio, do the other workout, rest/do cardio…and so on. ¬†Got it? ¬†The idea is to give your abs and core one day of rest in between workouts so your muscles can repair and gain strength. ¬†Overworking your abs without adequate rest prevents you from gaining the full benefits of the workout. ¬† Alright… let’s do this!

After doing my ab workout , you’ll be on your way to a sexy stomach like Beezy!

Alright, you guys asked for it so here it is – “Six Pack by Summer Vol. 2” ¬† If you missed Vol. 1, click here to check it out.

Vol. 2 ¬†is¬†no joke and will definitely get your tummy tight! ¬†Do the entire circuit which consists of 4 complete parts. ¬†For best results, do the whole circuit at least 3 times per week AND up the intensity and duration of ¬†your cardio workouts (can’t forget those). ¬†Once you get it down, try to lengthen the duration and reps of each exercise. ¬†The entire workout should take about 20 minutes.

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 ūüôā
  • 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!
