Getting That Sexy 6-Pack

It takes work. It also requires attention to diet.

I hear this a lot: “I want a 6-pack!” Your overall body fat needs to fall (probably) and then what nobody wants to hear:

No cake, cookies, beer, ice cream … So you’ll need to get your nutrition right 🙂

It’s also true that genes come into this somewhat, therefore, it’s accomplished easier for some but there’s always work involved for all.

Here are some SPECIFIC AB EXERCISES, I absolutely love. Yes, these will hurt….

1) SIDE PLANK WITH A CLAM:
Get into a side plank with hips & knees stacked – with your knees bent behind you about 90 degrees. Your head & neck need to be in line with your spine; your arm should be resting on the mat with your elbow under your shoulder – your other arm on your hip.

THE MOVEMENT:
Lift your top knee toward the ceiling & lower it back down again to meet the other knee. Keep your feet together the entire time, opening your legs like a clam. as you lift: firmly press your bottom knee into the floor.

2) RUSSIAN TWISTS (loaded or not)
Do it this way:

 

3) STABILITY BALL HANDS TO FEET
Do it this way:

Don’t use your arms to create this movement!
4) PRONE PIKE WITH STABILITY BALL
Do it this way:

TIPS for this move in order to get your 6-pack:

Keep legs extended & keep feet separated by a few inches. DON’T bring your feet together. Pull deeply from your core to create this movement. DON’T sag into your shoulders or lower back – you’ll feel that.

5) THIS :

I do these every day. Very typical gymnastics Ab-workout.
