Toward the end of the 20th century, baring your belly was quite a fashion trend. Thank goodness today this trend has died and our fashions are somewhat more modest. Still, even without the extreme motivation of keeping your abs trim to be constantly on display, it is a good idea to keep a trim waistline. It’s better for your health, and all clothes fit better when your waist is well defined.
When your abs are strong and in good shape, your back will benefit as well. That’s just one reason why having strong, good-looking abs is beneficial to your overall good health. Luckily, according to Jari Love, the creator of the Get Ripped program, it’s easy to get noticeable results quickly when you follow a well-designed ab exercise program. The Get Ripped DVD workout series is a good example. This program presents fresh moves that help you shape and define your belly quickly. In fact, just 20 minutes a couple of times a week will help you reap quick, positive, measurable results.
With Get Ripped, you attack your abs from all angles in a very short amount of time. The reason is that this challenging workout is designed in a circuit format that alternates aerobic work and muscle building. This is a great way to improve your metabolism, increase your heart rate, build solid cardiovascular health, burn fat and build muscle.
Circuit training is set up so that you complete a set of each recommended exercise in quick succession without resting in between. You repeat this circuit two or three times with only a brief breather between circuits. This is a challenging workout, so you will need a day of recovery between sessions. Remember that recovery is an important part of fitness. You will feel some muscle stress from this workout, so enjoy your recovery time to the fullest.
Here Are The Exercises & Recommended Repetitions
* 20 Obliques Bench Crunches
* 15-20 Reverse Crunches
* 10-12 Side Planks W/ Overhead Raise (on each side)
* 30 seconds of Single-Legged Plank (on each leg)
* 10 Weighted Windmill (on each side)
When you have completed this entire circuit you can rest for a minute or two. Then briskly move on to complete the circuit again.
How Do These Exercises Work?
The obliques crunch targets your rectus abdominus muscles and your obliques (both internal and external).
The reverse crunch is targeted toward the rectus abdominis and the transverse abdominis muscles.
The side plank w/ overhead raise targets the external and internal obliques and the rectus abdominis.
The single-legged plank targets the gluteus maximus, the erector spinae and the transverse abdominis.
The weighted windmill targets the internal obliques and the external obliques.
With this complete, simple, time-saving circuit training program, you can attack your abs from all angles for excellent, quick results. You don’t need any special equipment or clothing, and you can perform these exercises in just a few minutes a couple of times a week.
