Ben’s ABS Workout
When it comes to abdominal workouts a lot of people dismiss them towards the end of their routine! This is usually due to them being to tired or just through lack of motivation. When i train my abs i usually do it in the morning for a 20 minute period but not every day.
When designing my abs routine i follow a few set principles:
- I always start the session with heavy weight abs execises, such as weigthed leg raises, plated sit ups and cable crunches. I limit m rest period too 30 seconds and perform between 12-14 reps of 4 sets.
- When my abs begin to get tired i drop the weight and up the reps, keeping at the same rest period of no more than 30 seconds
- As they begin to severely fatigue i finis with super setting exercises such as wood-chop/knee raise to finish them off.
Workout: Rest 30 seconds for each exercsies/super set
E1. (Heavy weighted) Hanging leg raises 12 x 4
E2. Plated decline sit ups 12 x 4 (Plate positioned behind your head).
E3. (Heavy weighted) Lat pull down crunches 12 x 4
SS1. (Unweighted) Hanging knee raises 20 x 3 Plank 60 secs x 3

SS3. Lying oblique crunches 20 x 3 (Each side) Reverse crunches 20 x 3

Have a go and i promise in weeks your abs will have improved dramatically.
