Unless you’re a trainer, religiously follow fitness sites, or have been working out for a substantial amount of time, chances are you wouldn’t believe that you don’t need to “train” your abs with 100s and 100s of reps. Will 100s of reps help? Sure. Is it completely necessary, no, not really.
If your diet is in check, and you’re doing big, complex movements like squats and deaflits in the rest of your workouts, your core is getting plenty of action. So, you don’t need much more. We gave you a quick one to finish off every workout and to keep things interesting, we’re giving you another.
Tack this on to the end of any workout, three times per week.
CABLE CRUNCH x 12-15 reps
SIDE CABLE CRUNCH x 12-15 reps
PLANK MODIFICATION x FAILURE
Rest 30 seconds and repeat x 3.
