    Want to know how to get abs fast and a six pack for summer? 

    The best way to get abs fast is to use effective exercises for abs that target the upper abs, lower abs and core ab muscles in one abdominal workout routine to produce a perfectly chiselled six pack.  Using a variety of abdominal exercises in your ab workout is the key to six pack abs.  If you stick to one kind of abdominal exercise, such as basic sit ups, your muscles will adapt and you will limit results, so you need to keep challenging your abs with a variety of abdominal exercises in every ab workout.

    These 5 exercises for abs will help you to sculpt the ultimate six pack abs and ripped beach body fast. Complete this six pack abdominal workout routine 2-3 times per week, either as a ‘standalone’ abdominal workout or after your weights session.

    Remember that abdominal exercises are only part of the six pack equation, it’s also time to get serious about your six pack ab nutrition with supplements designed to get you ripped while also incorporating a fat-burning cardio regime, such a HIIT (high intensity interval training) into your workout routine.

    Expert Abs Workout Training Tip for the best way to get abs from Paul Haslam: 

    “To get six pack ab results you also need to keep increasing the intensity of your abdominal workout routine.    Like any other muscle group, your abs require intensity and progressive overload to become stronger and more six pack defined. That means when you complete your ab workout routine, over time the intensity of the exercises for abs must be increased by either increasing the number of abdominal exercise repetitions performed per set or increasing the volume of abdominal exercises by performing more total sets or reducing rest periods between ab exercise sets.   When performing your abs workout you can also try increasing the load on the six pack ab region by adding weight to the abdominal exercises.”
