Guide to Six Pack Abs in 2023

“If you want to get six pack abs without any equipment and you’re not sure what ab workout to do, then this is the one for you. This six pack workout is designed to do two things in only 22 days. The first is to train your abs they way they should be in order to get stronger abs. Your upper abs, lower abs, and obliques will be trained through their functions to most effectively hit them.”

“The next most important part of this six pack workout is that research has shown that it takes 22 days to form a behavior. We also know that when one behavior is changed or formed, others tend to follow suit. If you stick to this 6 pack ab workout for just 22 days, you will start to see changes to your lifestyle as well as your approach to working out and your nutrition for the rest of your life.”

“It is this element that makes this plan effective for even someone that is at a much higher body fat percentage, something that they will want to invest their time in doing. While the six pack abs may not be completely visible by the time the 22nd day rolls around, it is the habits and behaviors formed that can carry over and be the biggest game changer of all.”

“It’s important to note, however, that while you are making a commitment to this workout you are not underscoring the role that nutrition plays when it comes to having visible abs. I’ve said it many times before that the most important element of getting ripped and staying lean is having a good nutrition plan. I also mentioned previously that behaviors tend to pair together – meaning that as your behaviors change for the better with your commitment to this workout, your commitment to your nutrition will also likely change for the better along with it.”

“The good news is that your body fat levels do not have be nearly as low as you may have previously thought they needed to be in order to get a six pack. Some can even see the outline of a complete set of abs at body fat levels in the mid teens! That said, here is how this extinction style ab workout breaks down.”

“There are 6 total ab exercises in this routine. They start with lower ab movements and progress through midrange and oblique exercises, ending with top down movements at the end to preferentially target the upper ab fibers. The key to getting six pack abs is that you perform them for the given rep or time range. If you can do this successfully, simply rest for 10 seconds and repeat the exercise. Keep repeating the rep or time range until you cannot perform all the prescribed reps or time. Once this happens, you have reached extinction. Once you reach extinction, you move onto the next exercise in the six pack workout and complete it in the same manner.”

This 6 pack workout contains the following ab exercises:

  • Lower Ab Spikes x 10 reps
  • Seated Knee Tuck Drags x 45 seconds
  • Power Ups x 10 reps
  • Seated High Twists x 45 seconds
  • Backwards 7’s x 5 reps each side
  • Sunrise Situps x 45 seconds

“This entire ab circuit is to be performed just one time through, however, remember that you may be repeating individual exercises more than once if you are able to complete all the prescribed reps or time. In that case, you would rest 10 seconds and repeat the exercise until you couldn’t complete what was prescribed in terms or reps or time.”

This ab workout is a killer one but can be done by anyone, regardless off ability level or body fat level.
