Six Pack Workout Programs, What’s The Best One?
With the massive demand for a fit physique these days, there are so many six pack workout programs that are floating around the internet. But which one’s really work? I can tell you right now a lot of the stuff I come across regarding six pack workout programs is absolute rubbish. Heck there is even “six pack cream” floating around.
You see there really are 2 main factors to creating a six pack program to achieve that desired mid-section that all of us seem to want. Diet and Workout plan. Now as you all know (or should know by now) no matter what program you follow or how well you execute it, the real damage is done in the kitchen.
As they say “Abs are made in the kitchen”.
What I mean by this is the first thing you need to get in order is your diet, without being able to burn the fat there is no way for your ab’s to show no matter how hard you work them. I wont dive too much into the diet here as I’m going to talk about the best six pack workout program.
My six pack workout program
I personally follow a specific program 3x per week. One of the biggest mistakes people make is neglecting their core altogether, you see the abdominal muscles are just like any other muscle in your body. In order for them to grow and develop you need to work them on a regular basis. Everybody seems to train their other muscle groups 2-3 x a week (example being biceps, chest), why not abs?
My program has personally given me the best results. As I said before, without combining both of the underlying factors then this isn’t going to necessarily work for you too.
Yes that’s right, just the normal crunches. Forget what you hear about miracle programs advertising “abs without a single crunch”. The basic crunch motion is one of the best exercises that targets both your upper and middle abs. This is only the very start of my six pack workout program so I like to start off very basic. 25-30 Reps, 3 sets, 30 second rest
- Decline medicine ball sit-ups
For anyone who doesn’t know what this is, pretty much how you do it is by lying down on a decline bench, perform a normal sit-up but at the top of the motion you twist and bounce the medicine ball to each side of your body. This is a great exercise that is targeting your upper, middle, lower abs and obliques. 25-30 reps, 3 sets, 50 second rest
- Weighted Sit-ups super-set with hanging leg raises
For the last part of my six pack workout program I will finish off with a weighted exercise. Start off by doing a normal sit-up either with a weight plate on your chest (whichever weight you can handle) or a dumbbell extended over your head, either works fine. 15 reps, 5 sets, 90 second rest
Super-set this exercise with hanging leg raises until failure, the reason for going until failure on this is because the exercise is created to be a burn-out exercise, meaning to fatigue your muscles as much as possible.
As I said this may not work for everyone, there are many factors that go into creating a six pack workout program. This has just been the most effective six pack workout program for myself.
If you’re still having trouble wrapping your head around things, especially with the diet part of the program.

I owe a lot of the knowledge I have today to that book.
Do you know how to properly do a six pack workout? I know there are tons of information on the web, ebooks, video, and websites. How do you sort all of this information out and actually find a workout that works? I have tried many types of six pack workouts and have discovered that one of the biggest ingredients in getting the ripped six pack that everyone wants is “Consistency”.
If order to achieve results in your abs, you need to do a six pack workout more than once, twice, or even only for a few weeks. To get a six pack you need to work out your abs consistently with concentration and effort for at least 3 months to start seeing results. In order to have ripped abs for a life time you need to do six pack workouts the rest of your life.
Yes, I know it gets boring and it sucks, but when you know how to do a six pack workout properly and efficient, and then you start seeing results, believe me, you will enjoy doing them. Everyone has a six pack underneath the layer of fat that most people carry on top. You need to build the muscle just like any other muscle in your body and then do cardio workouts in order to burn the fat.
To properly do a six pack workout there needs to be a good all around ab workout with proper breathing control and concentration. Breathing is very important because it will help with contraction, making the ab muscles workout out harder. Concentration is extremely important as well. When you focus and concentrate on the abs being worked on, it prevents you from using any other muscle group, taking away from the effort of doing the six pack workout and and it will help you get one hundred percent of the result.
Remember you muscles grow in between the workouts not during the workout. The key is to break the muscle down during the workout, burn the fat, and let it recuperate in order to grow and get defined efficiently. Here is my six pack workout routine that has worked for me, many years.
Grab the tricep extension rope and place your knees on the ground facing the cable machine. The crunch down towards your knees with proper concentration and breathing.
The roman chair is one of the best leg raises machine to do a six pack out out there. Get on the machine and raise your legs straight up, crunching your lower abs while concentrating on your whole abs being worked. Do not use momentum to bring your legs up. Beginners, just bring your knees up.
Grab a plate or dumbbell, 25 – 45 lbs, and stand with your feet close together. Grab your opposite shoulder with your free hand. Bend to your side using your obliques.
Here is a basic six pack workout that works your whole six pack area. You should do 15 to 25 reps of 3 sets of each exercise. That is enough to get the ripped six pack workout that you want. Visit my website to see videos and pictures on how to do the proper workouts.
You can achieve whatever you want as long as you pay the sacrifice for it! Have a successful year!
