To build your abs, you’ll need to train them just like you would any other muscle group. This program contains dozens of new and challenging ab exercises, providing just the right amount of variety and difficulty your muscles need to finally build that six-pack you’ve always wanted.
Here’s an example of what your week might look like:
Monday: Chest and three heavy ab exercises
Tuesday: Back and one high-intensity ab circuit
Thursday: Legs and two ab supersets
Friday: Arms and three heavy ab exercises
Saturday: Shoulders and one high-intensity ab circuit
Follow a different split? That’s fine. You can make this program work with just about any split, or use it to replace the ab workout in any program in Bodybuilding.com All Access. Just make sure you follow these cardinal rules:
Do your hard ab training after big strength moves like deadlifts, squats, and military presses, not before. You need your abs to be ready to protect your back during those other moves! On something like chest day, or a shoulder day that doesn’t have heavy standing presses, feel free to start with abs.
Respect the rest days!
Why not train abs every day? Well, if you’re training your abs correctly—i.e., hard enough to add muscle and strength—and you don’t give your body adequate rest, you run the risk of burning out or sabotaging your other training. That’s the same reason you’ll perform these ab routines after your other training: so your other training doesn’t suffer from all the fatigue!
Since you’re going to be using a lot of weighted movements in the next four weeks, you can expect to be sore on those rest days.
This is only a 30-day program, but if you’d like, you can run it back to back. Just take a few days or a week off from it at the end of a month, and then dive back in. You might find it’s even more effective the second time around!
| The Schedule and Split |
In this program, you’ll hit abs about 4-5 times a week, following a schedule of two days on, one day off that’s designed to work with your weekly split. To be clear, this is an ab-specialization program, not a comprehensive training plan, so you should still be working other muscle groups while you follow this plan.
That said, to get the most out of 30-Day Abs, you should probably make it your biggest priority for this month. In other words, this isn’t the time to sign up for a powerlifting competition or try to add three inches to your biceps.
| Get Systematically Shredded |
This two-on, one-off plan hits the sweet spot of both frequency and intensity. You’ll do weighted work and supersets to make your abs pop, plus circuits for fat loss. These are short workouts to be attached to your current program, but you’ll feel them the next day!
