Six pack abs home circuit: How to do it?

Do 3 sets per session, 2-4 times a week. Rest for 2mins between sets but don’t rest between each exercise. If you find that difficult, allow yourself enough rest between sets.

For maximum results, you must focus on the area that you are working out and on your breathing. Execute the exercises in a controlled manner and exhale as you contract your abs.

You must complete all exercises in the circuit back to back.

Six pack abs home circuit: Which muscles does it target?

The exercises included in the circuit target most abdominal and core muscles in your body.

The crunches and leg raises target your upper and lower abdominals.

The side crunches and Russian twists target your obliques (or “love handles” if you prefer).

The plank targets your transverse abdominis. This is the deepest layer of your abdominal muscle. It wraps around your torso (back to front and from ribs to pelvis).

Six pack abs home circuit: What to expect?

Tom’s home ab circuit is designed to strengthen and develop your core muscles, and to sculpt your abdominal area.

If you are after a lean six pack look, you need to combine the circuit training with a fat-loss diet and cardio training.

    • @ Zayyan: It depends on your definition of “pretty lean”. If you are working out and eating properly but still can’t see your six pack abs, then you probably need to check your body fat %.

      If your diet is good, you may want to up your cardio a bit to burn some of the fat that’s hiding your six pack abs.

      • I am eating pretty decently but trying to eliminate bad habits. I don’t work out too much thats why I was looking for an at home plan so I think I need to up my cardio. Thanks! I will really use this plan and use your tips. Hope it goes well.

      • Eating right is an important part of any body transformation. Some say that 80% of your six pack abs are made in the kitchen. I am glad that you find the attached home workout useful. Please let us know how you get on.

      • I was looking at some eating habits considering carbs, fats, and other various nutrients but I was confused on what to take due to the fact that those are for intense workouts. So, I was wondering if you could direct me to a nutrition guide that works alongside this workout. Thanks.

    • @Carl: You are welcome, Carl. I’ve been looking for a simple home workout like that for a while. I had to post it when I saw Tom’s video. Mine has all the makings of a six pack – I just need to melt the fat layer that’s hiding it 🙂
