August has arrived and so has your six-pack if you join me on this challenge! It consists of five simple workouts that will be strategically alternated throughout the month. There is a “Total Abs” Workout that consists of exercises that target all areas of the abdomen. Also, there is an Upper Abs Workout, a Lower Abs Workout, and a “Love Handles” Workout to target those obliques!
You must allow your abs one day to rest in between each workout so that the muscles can grow. That is why a 20-Minute High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Workout will follow each ab workout day. Below is the August Ab Challenge Calendar and instructions for each workout will follow!
#1: Total Abs Workout
#2: Upper/Hourglass Abs Workout
#3: Lower Abs Workout
#4: Love Handles Workout
#5: 20-Min HIIT Workout
High-Intensity Interval Training involves combining short bursts of high-intensity exercises with short bursts of low-intensity exercises, which have been shown to increase fat burning and weight loss more than steady cardio. You can do any HIIT workout of your choice as long as it’s 20 minutes! Below are examples of Treadmill, Elliptical, Stairmaster and Outside Running HIIT Workouts!
