Abs: a worldwide fitness “obsession” targeting the human population, adding stress to our un-needed dose of daily pressure – as if we’re not having enough already.
The formula is very simple: if you need your abs to see the light of the day, all you need to do is lose fat by creating a caloric deficit. A calorie deficit is the number of calories you need to eat to lose weight compared to the calories to maintain your weight. You create this deficit by either eating less calories, burning more calories (through exercise) or a combination of the two.
Therefore, the lower your body fat percentage is, the leaner you are, the better abs definition you get.
This being checked, strengthen your core and improve your balance & stability with our first Killer ABS Workout Video posted on our social media platforms:
Check out the full description for each exercise below:
1-Ab Barbell Rollout:
Knees on the floor, hold the barbell in front of you as a starting position. Slowly roll the barbell forward, leading your body into a straight position. Reach as far as you can without touching the floor with your body, with a straight back and an engaged core. Hold for 1 or 2 seconds, then start pulling yourself back to the initial position while breathing out. Aim for 4 sets 10-12 reps.
2- Standing Cable Wood Chop:
From the lowest pulley position, with your side to the cable, grab the handle with both hands and step away from the tower about half a meter. Arms fully extended, pull the handle up while rotating your torso, with a straight back and tight core. Return to initial position. Aim for 4 sets 10-12 reps for each side.
3- Landmine 180:
Position the barbell in a corner, loading it with an appropriate weight. Raise the bar to shoulder height with both hands in front of you. This is your starting position. Start by rotating your trunk and hips, swinging the weight all the way down to one side, then all the way to the opposite side, arms extended. Alternate sides for a total of 4 sets 12-15 reps.
4- Weighted Decline Russian Twist:
Anchor your feet onto a decline bench and grab a plate with both hands. With your lower back not touching the bench, start the exercise by twisting your trunk as far as possible to the left, then switch to the right. This is one rep. Alternate sides for a total of 4 sets 12-15 reps.
Enjoy your workout!!
