9 Exercise Six-Pack Workout To Gain Monster Size And Core Definition

People generally like to approach cardio and fitness separately. But by combining them you will see a rapid body transformation and a solid six pack. If you combine these two areas of training, you make each exercise work double time. The great thing about this workout, is all you need are a couple dumbbells.

Do 3 sessions a week, alternating between workouts A and B with a day of rest in between. Perform the moves as a circuit. Do each exercise for 60 sec then move onto the next with just 30 sec rest between each exercise.

Do up to 6 circuits, taking a 60 sec break between each. In your third and final week, combine both workouts into one big circuit. Follow the same work-to-rest ratio, doing up to 3 of these mega circuits per workout, 3 times a week.
