If you tell me you really don't care how your abs look, well, I'm going to just come out and call you a liar. We all want toned abs.
Why wouldn't you?
Growing up, I used to crank out Crunches, Sits-Ups, Planks or whatever I could just to get those washboard abs. At age 13 it was pretty easy to have abs. My metabolism was sky high and I was wrestling every day of my life. I had a solid set of six-pack abs and it felt great!
Through high school and my collegiate wrestling career at Michigan State, I still had those toned abs from being an athlete and training my body to the limit every day.
College came to an end, I got a job, wife, kids and BAM! My Sit-Ups and Crunches got put on the back burner. Not a good idea.
I thought that I could get by with doing my basic moves—you know Squat, Deadlift, Bench Press, Sled Push, you name it. I was doing everything except targeting my abs.
So after a vacation this past fall, I came home after a week of drinking beer and eating everything in sight to discover that I had kind of lost my abs!
This had to come to an end.
So I went back to my 13-year-old days and came up with a Simple Ab Routine that I could do in addition to my strength workouts. Sure enough, it still works!
After doing this workout just twice a week, I now have my toned abs back and I'm feeling phenomenal.
So Simple Abs Routine
- Feet Up Sit-Ups - x 25 reps
- Furniture Mover Pikes - x 25 reps
- Plank Hip Dips - x 10 each side
- V-Sit Holds - x 10-second holds
5 Rounds, no rest.
See what I mean by simple? You can do this workout practically anywhere and it gets the job done!
Start doing this So Simple Abs Routine twice a week, and you too will start to see those six-pack abs you clearly want.
