Best Ab Workouts Revealed

Jan 22, 2008
In this article I wanted to bring you one of the best means of cutting up your abs fast. Tri-sets will have your metabolism racing and your ab fat running in fear as it's days are numbered. Forget about sit-ups and crunches. It's time to work smarter than ever before with this top notch ab workout.

Alternating between these key exercises will give you an awesome tri-set.

* Renegade Dumbbell Rows

* Barbell Front Squats

* Mountain Climbers on Floor

Each set should consist of eight repititions. If you find yourself struggling to do eight reps then lower the amount of weight. Begin by doing 3 or 4 sets of the squats and rows while doing around 30 seconds of the mountain climbers.

Renegade Style Dumbbell Rows: Start off in the pushup position. Your hands on dumbbells. Row one side up and then back down. Switch arms each time. As your the core of your abs struggles to balance your body you are getting a killer ab workout.

Front Squats With Barbell: This is a great leg building exercise with the added benefit of working the abs. Again form is important as your abs will be working hard to stabilize the shift of weight. Take your time and do it right so you don't end up pulling an ab muscle. Asking a trainer if you are doing this one correctly would not be a bad idea. Rest the barbell on your front shoulders while in the standing position. Cross your arms, keep your elbows in front of your body, and push your fist into the bar. Keep your upper arms parallel to the floor. Descend until thighs are just past parallel. Extend knees and hips until legs are straight. Return and repeat.

Mountain Climbers Floor Style: This exercise does not have a specific amount of reps to be completed. Instead you will be doing this set for a specific amount of time. 30 seconds is a good place to start. When done quickly and in proper form your abs will get a great workout. Assume the push-up position. Move the right knee up to your chest and back again to the start. Alternate between legs.

Short rest between sets are key to increasing your metabolism. Follow the steps above and don't let others in the gym distract you. With proper implementation of ab workouts like the one above you will achieve your ab goals in no time.
