Fantastic Abs Workout

Overview

If you want to see your abs, the first thing you need to do is stop thinking that certain exercises target individual muscles. Your body is smarter than that. If it wasn't, then every late-night TV abs device would do the trick. You see, the layer of fat on your belly has no connection to the muscle beneath your sexy stomach. This workout is the ultimate fat-eliminating routine because you'll activate more muscle, burn hundreds of calories, and work all of your core muscles with every exercise.

How to do this Workout

Perform this workout three days a week, resting at least a day between each session. So you might go on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

When you see a number with a letter next to it-such as 1A and 1B-it means the exercises should be performed as a group. Do one set of the first exercise, rest for the prescribed amount of time, and then do one set of the next exercise in the group. Repeat until you've completed all of your sets for each exercise, and then move on to the next group.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
