If you’ve been exercising for a while now, but you’re still having trouble losing that pudge around your middle, it may be that you’re not doing the right ab exercises. For instance, you might be simply doing crunches. Ab workout routines should be diverse in nature, challenging all areas of the core. These 6-pack exercises are designed to do just that.  So get ready for your new 6-pack fitness routine to tone, sculpt and define those abs!

Eating a clean diet and using portion control is important for uncovering your 6-Pack. Join the Skinny Plate Club and get your 6-Pack in record time. It’s free!
