IS A 6 MINUTE AB WORKOUT LONG ENOUGH?

Do you have 6 minutes? Well, then you’ve got plenty of time to get a great ab workout, and I’m going to show you exactly how to do it step-by-step, exercise-by-exercise today.

Yes, 6-Minute Abs are possible!

Many guys think that the only way to get abs is to spend copious amounts of time doing crunches and planks every day.

Some even think they’ve got to work their abs more than once a day!

Put simply, that’s a waste of time.

The fact is, you can start working on your six pack with just 6 minutes five days per week!

If you haven’t seen it already, in my video that I did on How to Get a Six Pack I try to help you to strip away all the lies and the mistruths to learn exactly what you need to do from a nutrition and ab training perspective, regardless of your current Body Fat Level, to get a 6-Pack.

Today, I wanted to show you an exact workout that I did when I was on a business trip in Las Vegas this past week.

With just six ab exercises, in only 6 minutes, I covered my upper and lower rectus abdominis, obliques and core stabilizers.

I wasn’t able to get to the gym, but I did have the ability to follow an ab workout that I got right from our 6-Pack Shuffle that’s included with the ATHLEAN-X Training System. With just six ab exercises, in only 6 minutes, I covered my upper and lower rectus abdominis, obliques and core stabilizers.

MY ‘SIX PACK PROGRESSION’

All of the workouts that are delivered by the 6 Pack Promise app follow the important ‘Six Pack Progression’ that I have stressed in previous ab workout videos that is so important to seeing fast results from your workouts.

My ‘Six Pack Progression’ works the ab muscles in this sequence to get optimal results:

  1. Lower abs
  2. Bottom up
  3. Obliques
  4. Mid-range
  5. Top down rotation
  6. Top down

HOW TO USE 6-PACK SHUFFLE

The 6-Pack Shuffle tool allows you to choose level of difficulty that matches your fitness level.

I generally try to go with the Max Level.  It also allows you to select your equipment, and since I’m traveling, I chose the No Equipment option.  After those 2 steps you hit start and it pops up a 6 minute workout.

6 PACK SHUFFLE –  YOUR ULTIMATE TOOL FOR SIX PACK ABS

As you can see, the unpredictability of the Shuffle feature is what can make the 6 Pack Shuffle workouts so challenging.

The ‘Six Pack Progression’ sequencing that I’ve created is what makes it possible to have such an effective workout in a short period of time!

6 Pack Shuffle is an effective tool for me because I can take it with me on the road. All I need is my computer. I can dial up the workout, hit shuffle, and I have no idea what’s going to hit me. This one hit me like a ton of bricks!

THE HIGHLIGHT REEL:
MY AB WORKOUT USING 6 PACK SHUFFLE

This is only one example of an ab workout that 6 Pack Shuffle can serve up.  The possibilities are endless!

  1. Figure 8’s for 30 seconds
  2. Seated Ab Circles (Clockwise for 30 seconds and Counterclockwise for 30 seconds)
  3. Dueling Clocks for 60 seconds
  4. Recliner Elbow to Knee Ab Tucks for 60 seconds
  5. Jackknives for 60 seconds
  6. Russian V Tuck Twists  for 30 seconds

Remember, the key to getting your abs to show is the correct Meal Plan and the right types of exercises done consistently and done well. And I want to emphasize, you can’t get the abs to show if you’re not following the right nutrition plan. Don’t let anybody else kid you to make you think otherwise!

The 6 Pack Shuffle tool comes with our ATHLEAN-X Training System, which also includes the ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY step-by-step Meal Plan, nutrition information and the best workouts to get you building muscle and burning fat straight through for the next 90 days.
