All About Abs!

Sculpted six packs and sexy midsections are 80% nutrition.  But, a little sweat in the gym doesn’t hurt!  Crunches are great and all (sarcasm), but seeing real definition means building muscle – so grab a weight and let’s go!

Repeat 3x.  Each exercise to failure…then wait 10 seconds and do a few more, now you’re at muscle failure!
