6 Exercises For Insanely Ripped Summer Ab Gains: Part 1

  • Insanely Ripped Summer Ab workout part 1

Here we bring to you part 1 of how to get your abs ripped! It’s as easy as 6 exercises to really get fired up and ready. This article is part of a circuit and we bet after this you will really feel the burn.

Remember,  your abs get a decent workout every time you squat, lift or press a weight, but, this is because their key roles include stabilising your torso and transferring power between your upper and lower body.

But, did you know that only ever doing indirect abs training with the big lifts won’t get you a sculpted six-pack. For that, you need to hit your abs directly. This circuit is advised to perform after your main workout!

Here we have compiled two hard-hitting abs workouts to help you sculpt a lean and defined six-pack, to get you started on that ab journey!

Workout 1: This six-move six-pack circuit will hit your upper, lower and side abs. Do this circuit twice a week after your main workout.
