Additional Tips for a Six Pack
Before you begin, it's recommended you understand how each exercise is performed to achieve the maximum results.
Note: * A1 & A2, and following letter pairs reference joined exercises (supersets) One exercise A1 followed immediately without rest by A2.
Note: 4-point tempo explained:
2010 tempo =
2 = negative/eccentric action
0 = pause in stretch position
1 = positive/concentric action
0 = pause in contracted position
* You can substitute a crunch for a double crunch if you want the overall exercise to be more difficult.
* By doing a variety of movements, you are targeting all the areas of the midsection. Using bodyweight is usually preferred over heavy weights that tend to build up and thicken the midsection.
* Rep ranges in this program are suggested. Go for 'perceived' exertion. If you can do more, do more. Judge a set by how you feel not how many reps you do.
* Keep the tension on the abdominals at all times.
