7 Myths About 6-Pack Abs

Muscle and Fitness Logo By Zack Zeigler of Muscle and Fitness | Slide 1 of 8: If your goal is to have a slimmer waistline, don’t train your abs with heavy loads. Use a weight that allows you to get at least 15 reps per set, allowing minimal rest between sets (less than 60 seconds). Alter your pace and exercise selection rather than your loads to get the most out of your ab routine.
