I am looking for a workout program that will help me lose body fat and strengthen my ‘core’ muscles. I want to get lean and once I do, have visible and strong abs. Do you know of a program that will help me achieve this goal?
Hey Tim. While there are hundreds of ‘core’ training programs available few really work to strengthen the muscles that make up this segment of your body. This is because they have you performing relatively ineffective ab exercises like crunches for countless reps at each workout. These exercises do very little to strengthen your abdominal muscles and don’t burn enough calories to help you get lean enough for them to be visible.
What you need to do are exercises and workouts that train your abs properly. This means movements which make them stabilize your body and resist excess rotation, flexion, and extension while standing, sitting, or lying down.
One exercise you can do to build your ‘core’ for visible abs is the kettlebell swing. It’s a total body workout in one movement with a huge emphasis on the muscles of your abs and lower back. Another benefit of it is that it burns more calories than perhaps any other strength training exercise. Take a look at this article for more info on how to perform kettlebell swings and the best way to add them to your workout.
If you want a complete workout program for your abs I recommend Turbulence Training For Abs 2011 (TT Abs 2K11). It’s a complete workout program that features exercises which really emphasize your abs. Some of them exercises are: kettlebell swings, 1 legged squats, pull ups, and planks. Once you try it, you’ll see how they work your abs harder than any sit-up or crunch every can.
The workouts are structured in a way that maximize the calories your body burns. This is done by using methods like supersets and circuits.
You don’t need a lot of equipment to do the workouts in this program either. All that’s required is some spare room and a set of dumbbells or kettlebells. You’ll do the program on alternating days 3 times a week. Every workout takes about 45 minutes to complete.
TT Abs 2K11 is a downloadable workout that you buy online. It comes with a money back guarantee and free online support to help you get the most from each workout.
