It’s a matter of weeks before the astronomical summer begins on Friday, 21 June 2013. There is a high possibility that you are going on some kind of a beach holiday (or vacation if you read this in America).

Over the past few months, we have published a variety of workout plans and weight training programmes to suite your level of fitness. Here is a selection of three workout plans (plus free downloadable PDF log sheets) that can be performed at home or in your gym. Two are full body workouts and the third is a six pack abs home workout routine, because everyone likes/wants a washboard stomach.

Six Pack Abs Home Workout Routine

A chiselled washboard stomach seems to be on everyone’s perfect body wish list. Everyone in the fitness industry seems to have an opinion on how to achieve the perfect six pack abs. One thing is sure: doing endless repeats and sets after sets of sit ups alone is not the right way to get a six pack.
