Abdominal Workout Tips by Justin Leonard http://www.leonardfitness.com
The proper way to train abs is widely debated by experts. The truth is, there is no right or wrong way to go about training abs. What works for someone else may not work for you. Everyone has a different body type. Results will vary from person to person.
As stated before, the most fat is burned when abs are trained with very little in the stomach. One should also consider performing some type of cardiovascular activity prior to beginning your training session. This minimizes your chance of overexerting an abdominal muscle.
I have designed a generic abs workout for starters. Feel free to modify as needed. This routine uses a traditional one-after-the-other technique. You could also use a supersetting technique (switching back and forth between 2 or more exercises, with little or no rest in between sets).
Crunches - 5 sets of 20 - hold each repetition for 10 seconds
Side Crunches - 5 sets of 20 - hold each repetition for 10 seconds
That's it! It should take less than 20 minutes to complete this routine.
