Despite what some trainers would tell you, it is possible to do an ab workout that burns fat at the same time. In this video, I show you an ab workout that helps you to burn fat and etch in your six pack abs at the same time. This is accomplished by adding a conditioning or fat burning component to traditional ab exercises. The goal is to complete as many rounds of this as you can and keep this ab workout fat burner going for 15 to 20 minutes.
To start, all you need to do this home ab workout is a pair of socks and a slick floor. You can do it on a concrete floor as I’m showing you or on a hardwood or kitchen floor even better. The key is that you want to be able to slide your feet on the floor quickly in order to get your heart rate pumping and help you to burn fat. Begin with a rapid sliding mountain climber for 30 seconds.
The goal of this exercise is not only to get your pulse up but to work your abs at the same time. If you find that you want more of an ab challenge you can always pick your feet up off the ground and perform a more traditional version of the mountain climber but just make sure it doesn’t compromise the speed at which you perform the exercise. The faster you can keep the pace up and the longer you can maintain it, the more this workout will help you to burn more fat.
Next you perform the ab exercise known as sliding gymnast abs. This core crusher is a tough abs exercise that really puts your six pack in focus. Try to perform 10 reps of this move and return to another round of the sliding mountain climbers for 30 seconds.
You next move onto 5 reps of sliding twisting oblique tucks to each side. This exercise will once again help you carve out that entire six pack and core by attacking the “framing” muscles of your abs called your obliques. As soon as you’re done with these 10 reps you move back to the sliding mountain climbers but this time you want to move them at an angle to either the right or left sides.
Keep this going and return to the gymnast abs for 10 more reps and finish out the circuit by performing the last set of sliding mountain climbers to the opposite side for 30 seconds. If at any point during this home ab workout routine you have to rest, try to do so out of a modified plank position with your knees on the ground. This will ensure that you get a chance to catch your breath but not take the tension off your abs. In order to keep the fat burning aspect of the ab workout up you have to try and keep the pace moving as quickly as you can.
