Pre-Holiday Ab Workout
With the holidays just around the corner, you need every strategy at your disposal to stay fit and keep the weight off.
This killer pre-holiday ab workout will help you get a jump on things and start early to fight fat so why not right?! Do this ab workout 2 or 3 times a week over the next few weeks, and you’ll keep that fit, toned physique through the holidays.
The Truth about Ab Workouts
There’s a lot of confusion surrounding abdominal workouts, so before we get to the routine, I thought I’d clear a few things up.
You need to work out your abs at least once or twice a week to see results, but these workouts have to be part of a total body workout plan. It’s not enough to only work out your abs. In order to burn fat and tone up enough to see your abs, you need to engage your entire body.
So I recommend doing this ab workout a couple times a week as part of a full body plan. This should include targeted upper and lower body workouts, so that by the end of the week you’ve hit every major muscle group.
You also need to be doing a lot of fat-burning, because you can’t target your fat-burning efforts. At the end of the day, successfully boosting your metabolism and burning more fat is a necessary step in getting the abs of your dreams. Intense cardiovascular exercise can help a lot with this, as can a healthy fat-burning diet. So it really takes a diversified approach to see real results.
Now for my pre-holiday ab workout…
