What’s up, guys Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX. Today we’re going to dispel some myths out there when it comes to burning fat when doing ab work. Now we know that there’s no such thing as spot training. You can’t spot reduce belly fat by doing ab exercises. What you can do is utilize your time a little bit more efficiently and you can make an ab workout a fat burning workout if you use the right exercises. We do this all the time with ATHLEANX. We combine conditioning with core training to make sure that you hit both needs, but.
You get it done a lot faster. So today I want to show you exactly how to do that right now. You’re going to use a floor and some socks. That’s it. If you have cement like I have behind me, perfect. If you have a hardwood floor, even better. But the idea is, if you’re going to turn your ab workout into a fat burning workout it has to be long enough. You can’t do your abs for three minutes, or five minutes. That’s a whole different angle and it’s an approach we use a lot in ATHLEANX when we really just want to focus on training.
Our abs. in this case we’re getting more of a conditioning workout, and of course using our abs at the same time. So how do we get an ab workout that we can do for 1520 minutes Well, it’s pretty simple. We get up here into a plank position and then we’re going to go and do a fast mountain climber. Now, this is a little easier position here than down on your elbows. So if you want to be down here on your forearms you’re going to do that, but you’re going.
Ab Workout that Burns Fat YES ITS POSSIBLE!
To drive into a fast mountain climber ad you’re going to do that for 30 seconds. So you’re using the ability of your feet to slide on the floor to make this a little bit easier. Just got to drive them up. Obviously, this, over time, is going to cause the conditioning benefit. Now, from here we come up onto our hands and we’re going to drive up. We call this a gymnast ab move. We’re going to keep our legs straight and slide our butt up in the air and then down.
Up and down. Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten. Then back down to your forearms and go. Now, if you have to rest at any point you can rest on your knees, but in a plank position, okay So get your arms down. You can see the abs are still working here. Down, but instead you want to keep it going. Now, from here, once you hit your 30 again come up to your hands. This time, swing your knees in to the side and then swing your knees into the side. Two, two. Three, three. Four, four. Five, five. Back down and drive them.
Out. This time bring them to the side this way. Which looks like this on the camera. Do them at an angle. Keep it going. Once you’re done, back to the top, in and out. Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Back down. Other side. So, essentially, all you’re doing is mountain climbers. You can see I’m already breathing fast. Mountain climbers, you’re either driving them straight forward or at an angle. Right or left. You’re doing the gymnast abs, pulling in straight legged to the center, or the knee slide twist that way. Right and left, five and five.
The idea is that you can definitely turn an ab workout into a conditioning workout and still make it an ab workout if you know what you’re doing. I show you step by step not just this workout but how to do it through all of our workouts in the ATHLEANX training system. We say we put the Core at the core of everything we do. This is no exception. Conditioning can also incorporate the core and it makes for much more efficient workouts that get you results faster because you don’t have to spend 30 minutes doing each objective,.
