Abs Made Easy
BRING YOUR SIX-PACK OUT OF HIDING BY BURNING THE FAT THAT COVERS IT
Directions Alternate workouts A and B with two days of rest between them. Alternate the number/letter exercises (1A, 1B; 2A, 2B), resting 60 seconds between exercises. Do the others as straight sets, resting 60 to 90 seconds. Aim for fatigue on each set.
IF YOU WORK OUT... 3 days a week: Do each workout once, plus 1 interval workout. 4 days: Do each workout, 1 interval workout, and 1 cardio session. 5 days: Do 3 strength workouts (alternating A & B), 1 interval workout, and 1 cardio session.
INTERVALS Warm up for 5 minutes. Work up to 85% of your max heart rate (220 minus your age). Slow down until your heart rate falls to 70% of your max. Start the next interval. Keep going for 20 to 30 minutes. Cool down for 3 minutes. CARDIO Aim for 45 to 60 minutes of steady-speed activity, indoors or out. A brisk walk is fine. Your only rule: Don’t do anything that hurts your recovery from strength workouts. You should feel better the next day, not worse.
