Abs of Steel

Getting Great Abs means you have to put in the work. Are you ready?

Abs are the one area that both Men and Women want to improve. Diet of course plays the most significant role in how your abs look aesthetically, however like any other muscle in the body the abs MUST be worked. Some self Proclaimed experts would try to make the case that all you need is to watch what you eat and your abs will do the rest. Bottom line, THEY, ARE, WRONG. No strength coach, fitness expert, research scientist or PhD in Exercise Science, Kinesiology, Bio-Mechanics, or any other field will tell you NOT to work your abs. If you want a great looking mid section, then you must work it.

Now the type of abs you want may differ based on your over-all genetics and body fat percentage as well as how and where you carry most of your weight. That is why it is key to tighten up the diet and also have a structured plan that targets the mid section in all areas. The anatomy of the abs can be summed up in a basic structure of Upper, Mid, and Lower areas, and also the external obliques or the side region of your torso.Different exercises play a different role in emphasizing these areas more than the other. In the below program I outline a program that targets each of these areas appropriately as well as give you a couple of videos to help with understanding the technique of how to hit your abs correctly and perform some of these movements.

The reason why there are so many different types of ab plans out there and different ones we also provide is because of the bodies ability to adapt. This plan like any others is good for only so long until your body plateaus with these exercises and loads you put on your body with either weight, reps or speed. Be sure to check back frequently as we will always make more plans available in the future.

If you really want an over-all custom plan trust us when I tell you to create your profile by signing up and following your plan from the workout section on the trainer. There is an optional upgrade that we make available that gives you much more customization with your nutrition, the ability to click and view any exercise and other advanced features, so we can pay the staff here on the Trainer to continue to make these plans available to you. We hope this helped and good luck with this ab program.

Take care,
Mike McErlane
