Six Pack Workout Programs, What's The Best One?

With the massive demand for a fit physique these days, there are so many six pack workout programs that are floating around the internet. But which one's really work? I can tell you right now a lot of the stuff I come across regarding six pack workout programs is absolute rubbish. Heck there is even "six pack cream" floating around.

You see there really are 2 main factors to creating a six pack program to achieve that desired mid-section that all of us seem to want. Diet and Workout plan. Now as you all know (or should know by now) no matter what program you follow or how well you execute it, the real damage is done in the kitchen.
As they say "Abs are made in the kitchen".

What I mean by this is the first thing you need to get in order is your diet, without being able to burn the fat there is no way for your ab's to show no matter how hard you work them. I wont dive too much into the diet here as I'm going to talk about the best six pack workout program.

My six pack workout program

I personally follow a specific program 3x per week. One of the biggest mistakes people make is neglecting their core altogether, you see the abdominal muscles are just like any other muscle in your body. In order for them to grow and develop you need to work them on a regular basis. Everybody seems to train their other muscle groups 2-3 x a week (example being biceps, chest), why not abs?

My program has personally given me the best results. As I said before, without combining both of the underlying factors then this isn't going to necessarily work for you too.

Crunches

Yes that's right, just the normal crunches. Forget what you hear about miracle programs advertising "abs without a single crunch". The basic crunch motion is one of the best exercises that targets both your upper and middle abs. This is only the very start of my six pack workout program so I like to start off very basic. 25-30 Reps, 3 sets, 30 second rest

Decline medicine ball sit-ups

For anyone who doesn't know what this is, pretty much how you do it is by lying down on a decline bench, perform a normal sit-up but at the top of the motion you twist and bounce the medicine ball to each side of your body. This is a great exercise that is targeting your upper, middle, lower abs and obliques. 25-30 reps, 3 sets, 50 second rest

Weighted Sit-ups super-set with hanging leg raises

For the last part of my six pack workout program I will finish off with a weighted exercise. Start off by doing a normal sit-up either with a weight plate on your chest (whichever weight you can handle) or a dumbbell extended over your head, either works fine. 15 reps, 5 sets, 90 second rest

Super-set this exercise with hanging leg raises until failure, the reason for going until failure on this is because the exercise is created to be a burn-out exercise, meaning to fatigue your muscles as much as possible.

As I said this may not work for everyone, there are many factors that go into creating a six pack workout program. This has just been the most effective six pack workout program for myself.

If you're still having trouble wrapping your head around things, especially with the diet part of the program. Check out the Truth About Ab's Program. A guide that is dedicated solely to attaining abs, combining diet and program. I owe a lot of the knowledge I have today to that book.
