6 pack absMost guys want a set of six pack abs!  It’s no secret. They want ripped abs that they can show off at the beach, be proud of when they’re with a girl for the first time, and even be the envy of their buddies in good old locker room banter.  But getting them is the little snag that keeps tripping them up!

As a trainer who has worked with some of the greatest star athletes and celebrities, I know that most guys are alike.  They are results driven and want to be able to get to their end goal with as little wasted time as possible.


A Shortcut to Abs?

Well, when it comes to abs there are no shortcuts.  Or are there? What if I told you that with one little 4 minute routine you could steadily chip away at the body fat that is covering your six pack right now, until just weeks from now, you’d be seeing an entirely new you staring back at you in the mirror…a beach ready, ab certified version of you?!?

Would you be willing to invest THAT kind of time?? Well, since you’re reading an article about fitness…and as a loyal follower of AthLEAN-X, I know that the answer is most definitely a resounding YES!  Well, as with any good loaded question, you really might want to know what’s required before you just answer YES!

I never said this would be a cakewalk.  Remember, it’s called 4 Minutes of HELL for a reason.  This isn’t Oz!


Four Minutes of Hell

OK, so now that I’ve got your attention here’s how you’re going to turn up the heat on your metabolism to become a fat burning inferno.  The key is in the succession of movements and the fact that rest is a non-factor in this workout.

You will literally be working from start to finish, involving virtually every major muscle group from abs, triceps, biceps, back, chest, shoulders, calves, hamstrings and quads….to every little muscle in between!  Don’t believe me?  Give me 4 minutes and I’ll give you the workout of a lifetime.

Oh and did I mention that you can do all of this in just a very small area of space? That said, here’s the rundown.  You’ll do 30 seconds consecutively of each of these exercises.  If you’re really man enough, you might even then consider giving hell another run for it’s money with a second round!  But only if you dare.

  • Alternating Kettlebell Swings- 30 seconds
  • Kettlebell Skier Hops – 30 seconds
  • Kettlebell Sunrise Sunset – 30 seconds
  • Plyo “X” Pushups – 30 seconds
  • Twisting Pistons – 30 seconds
  • Mountain Climbers – 30 seconds
  • Burpee Med Ball Press – 30 seconds
  • Jump Rope – 30  seconds


If you’re a visual learner and you’d rather watch someone else go through this ab-rewarding torture then you might either want to visit the following link or just press play on the video below.



Either way, if you can just find the dedication deep inside you to commit just 4 minutes a day 5 days a week to putting yourself through a little “hell” so to speak, just think about the rewards of finally having that six pack and what it will mean to you! Hell….I’m going to go do another 4 minutes right now!

Stay Strong,
