Ab attack workout

By Darren O'Toole | In Fitness, Gym, Health, Outdoor, Workout | on April 15, 2017

Abs are made in the kitchen – so they say – but without also doing a variety of different abdominal exercises to target the rectus abdominis and oblique muscles from different angles, then you’ll never see that elusive six-pack. This ab attack workout, to be performed twice per week, will help you to develop a firmer torso, just in time for the summer. Follow this routine of reps and sets below:

  • Ab crunches (20 reps)
  • Touch and crunch (10 reps)
  • Scissors (30 reps)
  • Oblique crunches (15 reps each side)
  • Reverse crunches (20 reps)
  • V-sit ups (20 reps)
  • Side plank (30-45 secs each side)
  • Plank (as long as you can hold the position)

Complete this circuit. Rest for 2 mins. Repeat. Add an extra set ever 2 weeks.
