The best way to do sit-ups to build ripped abs

When you do a normal sit-up (unlike in the video above)… Your hip flexors are the prime movers or the main muscle that helps you move back and forth when doing sit-ups so while you're doing regular sit-ups…

All your abs are dong is stabilizing or contracting real hard to keep your back straight while doing sit-ups and your abs are contracting the hardest in the middle of the sit-up movement and…

At the beginning of your regular sit-up exercise your hip flexors are doing almost all the work and towards the end of the sit-up your abs are almost not doing any work at all so…

It makes sense that when you do a sit-up you spend most of the time in the middle of the sit-up exercise where your abs are contracting the hardest and that's why if you do your sit-ups as shown to you in the video above you'll clearly get a much better workout for your abs over regular sit-ups and as a matter of fact…

I bet you right now you'll get a better ab workout doing sit-ups as shown in the video above doing ONLY 5-to-10 FIVE second reps than you doing 100 sit-ups in a row the old way because like I said…

When you do regular sit-ups most of the work is done by your hip flexors and your abs are only actually contacting or working for mere seconds when compared to you doing sit-ups MY WAY where you hold & contract your abs at least 5 seconds on each rep &…

To make this exercise tougher…

The best way to do Ab crunches for building six pack abs

Click Play To See How To Do Crunches Correctly

The only problem with doing regular crunches off the floor is there is not enough range of motion for you to get a better ab workout so in order to increase that range of motion…

In crunches your abs are doing all the work moving you up back and forth but without that extra range of motion from a stability ball or anything else…

Then moving just a few inches off the floor for 100 reps or more is doing you no good at all and when you've got that much needed extra range of motion...

All you'll need to do is 8-to-12 reps at a time and if you find that doing those 8-to-12 reps is too easy then…

Warning: These 2 exercises will only help you build a six pack &…

They will do very little to help you lose belly fat so you can see your six pack abs so look at how to lose belly fat & yes…

You will definitely build a six pack quickly after 2-to-4 workouts by doing 1 of these 2 exercises for 2-to-6 sets of 8-to-12 reps per workout 2-to-4 days per week but…

You won't be able to see the fruits of your labor (your newly built six pack) until you've lost all your belly fat.

Hello My name is Donna, last year my girlfriend left me cause i started dating my boyfriend again so i started sleeping with her late last year she told me am used goods and she doesn't want to finger paint me anymore, so i started eating a lot but never gained so much weight now i need to shred some weight please adrian help me get laid.

Im 5"10.5 (179 CM) male age 26 at a weight of 137 pounds (62 KG). Previously I was 90 KG 3 years ago. Anyway I lost the weight in February 10 2014 with diet+exercise and gave up junk food and sugary drinks & have now successfully maintained it for over a year now without any weight regain tendency! Something that I am happy about.

But I have no visible abs at all, but a flat stomach. Even though the skinfold caliper test says I have a Body Fat 5.78% with both digital and manual skinfold caliper since last year.

I was wondering whether just doing crunches would indeed build a 6 pack and how long would it take, few weeks, few months? Or do I need to rebuild muscle by incorporating weight lifting as well, since I may have lost some lean mass due to the diet and cardio.
Also do I need to eat at a caloric surplass when doing crunches to build the abs?

Many thanks,

Adrian, I like the work-out! I'm 26 and have some lower back problems. Chiro told me to get my abs in better shape and it could solve my back problems. Is this workout good for your back also?

Adrian Bryant

How long will it usually take? And why do I have to do it only 2-4 times per week? If I'm strong enough, can I do it 5 times a week?

to get abs you need to lose fat to be able to get them or see them.
