Every Monday, Ill be posting a new workout here on the ParkerCoteFitness.com Blog to add to your routine.  I’ll switch it up each week, focusing on different muscle groups, techniques, and exercises with workouts that I have found to be effective.  I thought it would be fitting to lead it off with most people’s number one physique goal: a set of impressive, lean 6-pack abs.

Especially since summer is right around the corner, I figured it would be perfect timing.  This workout should take no more than 20-minutes, so you can add it to the end of a resistance training or cardio session.  I think it is imperative to train the upper, lower, and oblique portions of your abs in each workout.  That way, you train your entire core thoroughly and completely, avoiding and weak points.

In this workout, we are going to keep it simple.  For each exercise, perform 3 sets of 15-20 reps.  On the superset exercises, perform the sets back to back with no rest (for example, decline crunch directly to hanging knee raises), and rest 1-1.5 minutes between each superset.  For the medicine ball Russian twists, rest 30 seconds to 1 minute between sets.

Add this workout to your current exercise routine 1-3 times per week for best results.
