If you’re someone who’s on a mission to get six pack abs, there’s no question you’re going to want to get your hands on a good workout that will stimulate not only the primary abdominal muscles, but the muscles surrounding them as well so you can get a toned and lean midsection.
Far too many people spend countless hours on crunches and other exercises each day but fail to ever see results come about because of them.
Instead, you need to learn the secret tricks that you must do with your workouts if you hope to garner success.
What are these secret tricks?
They can be summed up in three words: instability, increased range of motion, and added resistance.
You want instability to be in the picture because when you perform the exercise while you’re unstable, every single muscle fiber deep within the core will be contracting at a rapid rate, thus taking your workout intensity up a notch.
Having an increased range of motion is going to be beneficial since this will ensure that your muscles are targeted to a maximum extent and not only partway through a movement pattern, and finally, having added resistance is going to ensure the muscles are working as hard as possible and are being put to the test.
Just like you add additional weight when training your other muscle groups as you get stronger, the abs are no different.
So all of this said, let’s give you a great ab workout that will incorporate all three of these elements and help you finally get the results you deserve.
Perform either of these workouts every other day at the end of your workout program.
