Six-Pack­age Deal

A FOUR-WEEK WORK­OUT THAT BUILDS ABS – AND MUCH MORE.

Men's Health (South Africa) - - STRENGTH - BY MICHAEL JEN­NINGS

Yeah, you want a six-pack, but a strong core doesn’t just make you look great. The true rea­sons to train your core: pow­er­ful abs re­duce back pain, smooth your run­ning stride, and boost your bench press. Sum­mer is an ideal time to fo­cus on this, prep­ping your body to both work (cut­ting all that grass) and play (surf­ing!). This work­out blends the ideas of three train­ers with dif­fer­ent spe­cial­i­ties – biome­chan­ics guru Andy Vin­cent, strength ex­pert David Birtwistle, and pro-ath­lete trainer Tom Bliss – and it’ll chal­lenge your abs to sta­bilise your body as you train other mus­cles too. Best of all: it’s a sit-up-free plan!

DI­REC­TIONS Do this full-body work­out 3 times a week, rest­ing at least 1 day be­tween ses­sions. If you’re new to the gym, this is all the fit­ness you’ll need for the en­tire month. You can also add these moves to your own work­outs.
