Abs of a Greek God

By Sean Celtic Fitness Dunne in collaboration with LA Muscle Athlete Zoran

One of the main reasons that guys go to the gym and the finishing touch to a perfectly sculpted physique is of course rock hard, chiselled abs with a defined lower ab v-cut.

Anyone can have abs but to achieve all of the above requires the correct diet, training and supplementation.

Nobody likes doing thousands of sit ups and crunches. Not only are they ineffective and time consuming but you can achieve the desired results with certain movements and exercises that fully target and contract your abs and core, giving you the definition that you're after.

Here are some great exercises that target your abs and strengthen your core to give you rock hard abs with maximum definition.

Hang On

Jump up and grab the parallel bar with an underhand grip, hands shoulder-width apart with your arms at a 90 degree angle. Engage your lats to begin in an active hang and tense your whole body with an extra focus of contraction on your abs and core. Hold this for at least 30 seconds and release. Ideally, once you have been doing these for a while and get stronger and used to them, you want to eventually hold this for a minimum of 45-60 seconds per set for 3-4 sets.

Tuck In

Jump up and grab the parallel bar again with an underhand grip. As you rise up, use your lower abs to tuck your knees into your torso. This will angle your body under the bar as your head just passes it. Tense and tighten your abs and core and hold. Lower yourself down until your arms are nearly straight. Do 10-12 reps for 3-4 sets.


Kick Out

Jump up and grab the parallel bar with an underhand grip, hands shoulder-width apart with your arms at a 90 degree angle. Engage your lats to begin in an active hang. Forcefully extend your legs to form a 45-degree angle from head to toe and tense your whole body with an extra focus of contraction on your abs and core. Hold this for at least 30 seconds and release. Do 3-4 sets and try and increase the time to a minimum of 45-60 seconds per set.

Add these exercises to your ab workouts and within a few weeks you'll have shreds worthy of any Greek god!
