The ultimate abs workout (difficult but highly effective)

Check out Jeff’s ultimate abs workout on Athlean X.

The Ultimate Ab Workout

“When I set out to create the best abs exercise program, I had a lot to consider. There were hundreds of ab exercises to choose from, and more importantly, even more ways to perform them. To create the best ab workout routine, I had to determine the best way to test your abs while mixing in many new styles of training that your abs weren’t used to yet.”

“In this video, I show you the first ultimate full abs workout. This ab workout contains weighted ab work as well as more time under tension for the different ab exercises by using a one and a half rep training style. The key to getting your abs to respond to your training is to stop doing the same old ab exercises when you train them.”

“Too often people get comfortable using the same 4 or 5 ab exercises in their ab workout and quickly lead to what I call stale abs. If you want to generate all the new development from your abdominal workouts, you need to present challenges to your core that your body isn’t used to yet. One and a half reps does exactly that.”

“As you can see, it’s much more difficult to complete one rep of an ab exercise when you have to stop your momentum in the middle of the exercise and return it to the original direction. This demands that you have killer core strength and control. It must then have the power to restart movement back in the desired direction. This has the overall effect of lengthening your time under tension and helping your abs work harder.”

“Weighted ab workouts are just as important for overall abs development. Many times, people complain of having flat abs…abs that don’t stick out or have a six-pack appearance. Combined with proper nutrition, it’s smart to overload your abs in some way if you want them to explode. This combination at the beginning of training is perfect to achieve it.”
