Spring into Your Beach Body: 6-Pack Workout
It has been a long winter and it is now time to put away those heavy jackets and snow boots and start enjoying the beautiful weather spring must offer. If your goal is to have a flat and sexy mid-section by summer, I hope you know that it takes more than just a couple of sit-ups to make it happen. I know that we all are sometimes brain washed by the too good to be true offers of a better body we see daily through social media but the truth of the matter is if you want a lean, healthy and fit body then you have to embrace fitness as a lifestyle. This simply means that you have to follow a healthy eating and exercise program on a consistent basis. The workout program should include more than just abdominals. You need to work your entire body because you can not work one individual body part and expect to just spot reduce that area. The body loses weight systematically and holistically, so just doing abdominals alone is not an effective way to achieve your goal. That being said, you will need to incorporate a results producing abs workout into your overall training regimen. We have come up with just that! Try the following abs routine, it contains 6 exercises that will work your entire mid-section and you don’t even have to leave your living room to do them.
Spring 6-Pack Workout
- Lying Leg Raise: 12-15 reps
- Single-Side Leg Raise: 12-15 reps
- Basic Crunch: 12-15 reps
- Bicycles: 12-15 reps
- Cross-Knee Crunch 12-15 reps
- Plank- Hold To failure.
Do all 6 exercises in a row with 20-30 seconds between exercises.
When finished with the plank, rest for a full 1-minute and repeat (start with exercise 1). Try and complete 3 cycles, meaning you will perform each exercise 3 times.
If you want to increase the intensity of the workout you can increase the amount of repetitions and sets or cut down on your rest intervals between sets. Please don’t get caught up with the more is better philosophy. You should wait 48 hours between abdominal workouts, your body needs rest in order to fully recuperate and you will be hindering your development if you over do it! Rome wasn’t built in a day and either will you be.
