Perfect Abs Workout For Lazy People

Tired of boring ab workouts?

Sick of the same abs routine you have been doing emm…forever?

Fed up with ab workouts that cause more harm (read: pain in lower back, strained neck, hurt hips) than good?

Looking for something fresh and better?

Then I got some exciting news for you.

“BETTER ABS” WORKOUT SERIES ARE HERE

It’s time for better workouts and better abs.

I recently asked my blog visitors what would they like to find on Abs Experiment. Most of them (and maybe you too) said abs routines.

That got me really excited.

You see if I am really good at anything then it’s designing effective workouts. You can ask my personal coaching clients.

Here it’s how it’s gonna happen.

I will film and post 1 or more (hopefully) new abs workout a week. This way I will be able not only to provide useful stuff for you but also bless my own abs on regular basis. It’s a win-win.

Plus I will get a chance to add many different ab exercise videos and pictures (that are sitting on my hard drive for a while now) to my abs exercise database. Again win-win.

My goal this year is to focus on this blog and grow it outer space (read: help as many people to reach their goals as I can).

In the following months you can expect many unique ab workouts and other great stuff here on Abs Experiment. So stick around. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to not to miss out.

I would appreciate if you kept me accountable too.

HERE’S HOW DO I DESIGN MY ABS WORKOUTS

This is important for you to know.

If there is anything I take very seriously in this life, then it’s workouts.

When developing every workout I take into consideration things like:

Does this workout includes multiple ab movement patterns?

You see there are a multiple functions of your abdominal muscles. Crunching is just one of many. (You don’t wanna hear how much I hate all those Pinterest and Instagram ab workouts with 10 different crunching exercises in one workout).

You have to implement every movement pattern in your workouts if you want fully developed and functional midsection. I will cover this topic in another post in more details.

How to minimize lower back/neck/hip pain during the workout?

Do the wrong exercises or/and do exercises in the wrong order and you might be forced to terminate your ab workout before providing enough stimulus for your ab muscles. Thus not getting the results you are looking for.

There are many things I consider when coming up with workouts.

Will this workout will be suitable for beginners?

How to design the workout that would challenge and benefit even advanced trainee?

I try to put together simple and easy to follow routines. Don’t be fooled though. Simple doesn’t always mean easy.

Ok. Enough talking. Try it for yourself.

Here’s the #1 Better Abs workout…

PERFECT ABS WORKOUT FOR LAZY PEOPLE:

Watch the video below:

This is one of my favorite abs routines lately. That’s probably why I did film this one first. In less than 3 minutes you can work almost every single muscle in your abdomen. Perfect abs workout for lazy people and those in a hurry. No equipment required.

All you have to do are 3 exercises in a row. For 3 rounds.

No rest between each ab exercise. You rest after each round.

You do exercises on time.

Your goal is to do as many quality (can’t stress this enough) reps you can. Once you finish one exercise begin the next one immediately. When it gets tough lower the tempo but keep performing the exercise. If necessary stop for a second and reset.

Objectively evaluate your core strength and choose between Basic or Advanced version. Protocols are the same. Exercises are different. Thus difficulty differs.

STRUCTURE OF THIS ABS WORKOUT:

  • Exercise #1 (lower abs): 45 seconds
  • Exercise #2 (inner abs + obliques): 45 seconds
  • Exercise #3 (upper + obliques): 45 seconds
  • Rest: 45 seconds
  • Repeat 3 times

Total abs workout duration: 9 minutes. Hint: One 3 minute round is better than nothing you know.

The goal is not just to survive the workout or do as many reps as possible. No. The goal is to go through the workout with a confidence knowing that you are getting the most out of every single repetition.

That’s why I friendly recommend get acquainted with each of the exercises beforehand. Click on the links below and read How To’s, common mistakes and tips for each exercise.

Promise me that you’ll focus on quality instead of quantity. Okay?

LOWER ABS FIRST

For majority of people lower abs are the weak point. Meaning they are less developed when compared to upper abs. That’s why we start this ab routine with ab exercise that allows us to put more focus on that lower abdominal portion. We do this at the beginning of the workout while we are fresh and have the most energy.

GO FACE DOWN

Unless you are resting your neck on the floor (which is a bit easier) while you do the first exercise, there will be some tension in your neck. This is why the second exercise is face down. Front of your neck can rest now just in case it got tired.

This exercise will help to strengthen and firm your abdominal wall without adding any size to them.

A BIT OF IMAGINATION

After that’s done we go back on our backs to focus on the obliques and upper abs. Rope climb crunches is the most exciting crunching exercise out there. Because it’s fun and it burns like hell if you do it right.

USE TIMER

To make things more convenient, download a decent timer application on your phone so you can set the intervals beforehand. You can use Tabata Timer Interval Timer (for Android) or Tabata Stopwatch Pro (for iOS) or any other you prefer.
