Deadly Ab Workouts For Summer

By Vince Del Monte, WBFF Pro Fitness Model, Certified Fitness Trainer and Nutritionist and author of No Nonsense Muscle Building.

As you know I had to delay the launch of my new ab and fat loss program almost 6 weeks which was pretty embarrassing but I am sending you loads of free workouts, plans and advice before you can get your hands on the complete step-by-step plan this Monday, August 4th, at 12pm EST!

It makes no difference whether you have to lose the first 100 pounds or the last stubborn 10 pounds and I don’t care how bad your genetics are or what you’ve tried.

Lately, I’ve been getting interviewed by some of the top fitness guys on the Internet and have cut and paste some of my favorite responses to some of the best questions I’ve received. Enjoy…

Question: What do you think about low reps versus high reps for an ab workout plan?

Vince: I don’t think it really matters if you do low reps or high reps if your body fat is too high – you’ll have no idea if you have an effective ab workout unless you focus on your diet.

You can do the worlds best ab workout but if your body fat is too high – you’ll never know.

Interestingly, you can get a six pack without doing a single ab exercise or ab workout in the world if your body fat is low enough.

But to address your questions, I prefer a combination of higher volume circuits on abs and weighted exercises for lower reps – I incorporate both methods into the same workout to ensure I hit all the muscle fibers. I have over a dozen great ab workouts that I blend into my weight training and cardio workouts and just rotate them around so I never get bored.

Question: What is the biggest mistake men make when trying to get 6 pack abs and creating an effective ab workout plan?

Vince: Winging it and just “hoping” the fat will come off. How do you believe that you consistently lose 1% body fat each and every week until your shredded without following a specific plan?

That’s like hoping to become a millionaire one day without having a saving plan.

Most importantly, not having a pre-designed meal plan that is based on a set number of calories and tells you exactly what to eat, at what times and in what amounts and exactly what to shop for.

If you do not have a specific meal plan and just trying to “eat healthy” then how do you know at the end of the day if you over consumed or under consumed? How do you know what to change next week when you get on the scale and have plateaued? How can I help you tweak your diet if you’re not even following one?

Question: What is the weight training program like in your new program?

Vince: Hard!  This is not a “10 Minute Simple Workout” like that new one on T.V. right now. When I figure out how get six-pack abs in 10 minutes a day then I’ll will certainly let you know though 🙂

If you were the laziest person in the world, you would still sweat and suck for air during some of my workouts because of the exercise combos, sets, reps and (lack of) rest periods.

My weight training program has strength, function and conditioning all under one umbrella which is critical for getting the trophy of all trophies – six pack abs!

My philosophy is, “If you want to look fit then you must become fit,” so these workouts, unfortunately, are not easy but very exciting, challenging and rewarding.

Question: Could you provide me with a great ab workout for beginners?

Vince: I consider this kind of circuit “foundational” before building six pack abs from the inside and out and having a core as strong as a bear.

This is an excellent mini circuit for beginners or if your just getting back into it (but I’ve made some pretty big guys shake like crazy while doing this so give it a try):

1. Plank in push up position – 10 legs raises each leg
2. Plank from elbow position – 10 leg raises each leg
3. Side plank from hand position – 10 legs raises each leg
4. Side plank from elbow position – 10 leg raises each leg

Build up to 2 sets of 20. These will engage your core, gluts, shoulders and arms all at the same time. This will “switch on” your entire nervous system before an intense weight training workout as well. Don’t be surprised if you start sweating.  You can do this every day.

Question:Do you have an effective ab workout if I’m advanced?

Vince: Yes, I just posted my favorite one on You Tube which you can view and comment on.

Check out this great ab workout if you’re advanced:

1) Hanging Leg Raises – 3-4 sets to failure

2) Wood Choppers (high to low) – 3-4 sets for 15-20 reps a side

3) Weighted Cable Crunches – 3-4 sets to failure

Rest for 60 seconds if you want to do it again.

One of my secrets to getting a six pack is not being a slave to the details of your program. I did this ab workout every day after my early AM cardio.

Life is good,
Vince Del Monte

  4. My generation, faced as it grew with a choice between religious belief and existential despair, chose marijuana. Now we are in our Cabernet stage.
