Awesome Abs

abs b&w

I’ve worked my abs many, many different ways.  There have been times where I’d end every workout with an ab exercise or 2.  There have been times where I’d only work my abs once per week, but it’d be an all out ab blast.  Sometimes, I would use weights.  Sometimes, I wouldn’t.  There are so many options.  If anyone ever tries to tell you there’s only one way, uh… they need to open up their mind and try mixing things up.  Also, I’ve found that sometimes one way works better for me than another, and the way that works best can change.  Listen to your body and experiment to find what works best for you.  Anyhow, I’ve been following a program that I put together for about 3 weeks now.  I’m planning to stick with it for 6.  Sometimes, I change up my program more often than that, but I’m trying to set some personal records with this program, and I’m continuing to see progress.  I’m going to stick with it for a full 6 weeks.  The main personal record I’m working on with this one is basically to see the highest number of sit-ups I can do in 2 minutes.  The rest of the workout just supports the overall goal by strengthening the abs.

Alright.  Get ready.  It’s workout time!

Sit ups: as many as you can do in 2 minutes (I use the timer on my phone)

Ball pass: Lying on your back, hold a ball between your ankles (most people use an exercise ball for this, I like weight here, so I use a medicine ball), raise your legs up above you, reach up with your hands and take the ball.  Holding the ball, bring your arms overhead, so the ball touches the ground.  Meanwhile, lowering your legs to the ground.  Then, bring your arms and legs back up and pass the ball from your hands to your ankles.  Continue passing the ball back and forth. (3 sets of 10, no cheating, ankles to hands, to ankles is 1 rep)

Sit ups: as many as you can do in 2 minutes (I use the timer on my phone)

Ab wheel rollouts: Starting on your knees, hold the handles on your ab wheel and roll out, and back.  (3 sets of 10).  Learn more about the ab wheel here.

Sit ups: as many as you can do in 2 minutes (I use the timer on my phone)

Plank: Hold a plank on your forearms for 1 minute (3 times).

Sit ups: as many as you can do in 2 minutes (I use the timer on my phone)

Boom!  There you go!  You made it.  You did it.  Congratulations, and keep at it.  Always work hard and always try your best!
