  1. I totally agree that abs don’t just come with working out! Although some people are blessed with a fast metabolism and can burn fat quickly no matter what they eat.  I have seen people get great results in their upper body with push ups and crunches.  It seems that if you target your core area that all of your body will get into shape.  

  2. Great post, It shows all the best exercises to achieve a six pack, and more importantly to achieve strong muscles in a safe and healthy environment. Everyone should try to do some exercise each day, whether they wish to build a six pack or to simply look and feel great for themselves.

    Thank you

    1. Well thank you, I’m pleased to hear that you find the information useful. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I was always under the impression that crunches and similar exercises were the best way to get six-pack abs! I honestly had no idea that jumping jacks and push-ups would help with your abs! How many times a week and how many reps of each exercise would you recommend for the best results? 



    1. Well, that’s right. Most exercises focus on different areas of your body. Jumping jacks, for example, focuses on Lats, shoulders, biceps, triceps, inner thighs, hamstrings, quads, calves, and glutes, but not mainly your core. But, you won’t feel the same burn-in your abs from doing jumping jacks as from a set of planks, but you’re still working these muscles. Best to advised for doing in 3-10 minutes continuously.

      When it comes to push-ups its a really good exercise for your chest with the anterior head of the shoulder and triceps while doing push-ups you have to keep your core stable throughout the entire exercise, so it definitely does help you work the core area. A recommendation would be 3 sets with 10 repetitions.

  4. I workout regularly, with the instruction of a coach, and although my upper abs are showing some definition, the lower abs need improvement. Not sure if I will get a six pack, but I am working in that direction. I am just knowing that jumping jacks help abs. I didn’t know that. I find the plank, push ups and hanging leg raises very challenging, and from your descriptions these are what I need to do. So I will just go ahead and stop complaining. I will do what i need to do. Thank you for your article.

  5. I totally agree with you that having an astonishing and sexy abs is a combination of both nutrition and exercises. Thanks for pointing this out because we tend to focus on exercises alone. 

    These exercises you have shared are nice but I must admit that I am only familiar with push ups. I’d take a closer look at the others.
