Six Pack by Summer

14 Comments

You CAN have a sexy stomach in time for Summer by doing the "At Home Tummy Tone" 3X per week along with regular cardio workouts!

“At Home Tummy Tone”

  • Duration: 20 minutes
  • Calories burned: about 100
  • Focus: Strength and tone of Rectus Abdominis, Obliques
  • Commentary: Ladies and gents – summer is creeping up a little more every day.   Go ahead and get a jump-start on tightening up your tummy.  Below is workout I put together to overload your abdominal muscles, build core strength and flatten the belly.  No equipment is required so you can do it effectively at home!
  • Facts: The Rectus Abdominis (front abs) tend to be one of our weaker, under-worked muscle groups so its critical to spend special time strengthening them specifically.  Strong abs help balance weight throughout your core and prevent too much weight-bearing and stress on your lower back.  A flat tummy is also just nice to look at 🙂
  • Instructions: Do the following set of exercises – just one time through.  The entire workout should take about 20 minutes and your  abs will be on FIRE!  For best results, do the workout at least 3 times per week along with moderate/high intensity cardio workouts.  Be sure to stretch (cobra position) afterwards and enjoy your six pack!

  1. While this is certainly an ab strengthener, wouldn’t there need to be more cardio (e.g. fat burning) rigor in this workout to actually reduce tummy fat?

  2. Is it okay to break the reps into sets? For example, would I need to do 100 crunches at once or could that be done in intervals with other ab exercises in between?
