How to Get Six Pack Abs in 3 Steps

I'm gonna start tomorrow

You need just 10 minutes a day to get your abs fit.

Step 1: Classic Crunch

Feet and back level with ground, knees bent upward and arms folded around chest. Starting slow and steady is always best; you want to be able to feel your abs actually pulling you through and up. To create a good burn you usually only have to go half way up to your knees.

Step 2: Planks

Planks require you to concentrate on remaining still, and they may seem easy but a minute will seem a lot longer during this exercise. Try to include one or two of these in every seven minutes.

Plank Upright

Lift yourself with your toes and forearm, keep body as straight as possible and KEEP YOUR BUTT DOWN. Within 30 seconds most people start involuntarily shaking and that’s how you know it’s working!

Plank Right

Lift yourself with your right forearm and keep left arm perpendicular with body. Again, your body should form a straight line, or plank.

Plank Left

Same as Plank Right, but on your left side.

Step 3: Six Inches

Six inches

Position yourself with back facing ground and hands underneath your butt. Raise your legs so that your heels hover roughly 6 inches from the ground. After 30 seconds your legs with start involuntary spasms.

Six inches to crunch

Fold your arms around your chest, and simultaneously raise your kneecaps to your chest while you crunch and as you go back down push your legs back out so that they hover 6 inches to the ground. Your feet should never touch the ground.

Six to thirty six

During one minute slowly raise your legs so that your feet hover from six inches to 36 inches above the ground, and then slowly lower them back to six and repeat.

Swimmers

Start off in Six Inches position and raise each leg at a time upwards and as one leg comes down the other should be going up. This exercise should be done faster than the other leg raises.

Scissors

Same as Swimmers but instead of going vertical, your legs should be going horizontal and crisscrossing each other in a fluid motion. This one is also a fast pace exercise.

Bicycles

Start off in classical crunch position with feet up. Start pumping each leg mimicking the rotation of pedaling a bicycle. With opposite elbow to kneecap, side crunch so that they just barley touch. Start off slow to get the grasp of the motion.
