Burn fat and get six pack abs without equipment
Some people think that fat burning workouts and ab workouts have to be done separately. That’s not the case. In this video, I show you a fat burning ab workout that you can do at home without anything more than a pullup bar that you hang in a doorway. Not only that, but because of the bodyweight exercises we choose in this workout, you’ll be able to create muscle overload in your upper and lower body and therefore build muscle with this as well.
To start, we will break down this ab workout into more than just abs. With an upper body push, upper body pull and legs component of this routine, you’ll be able to target all of the major muscle groups beyond just the abdominals. First up is the push portion of this home ab workout.
Begin with a set of spiderman pushups to failure. The key difference between this exercise and a more traditional pushup is the increased demand on the core muscles needed to perform it. With just three points of contact on the ground instead of four, you have more work required of your abs in order to perform this classic upper body exercise.
As soon as you are done with your first set, proceed immediately into the pendulum plank exercise and perform it for your 45 second “rest” period. Obviously it would be nice to take an official rest but this is not in the cards in this routine, not if you want to burn fat that is. Keep doing this for 3 rounds and then you earn a quick breather until moving onto the next portion of the workout.
Here you move onto the upper body pull portion of this fat burning ab workout routine. The combo you perform here is the legs straight high pull pullup. This ab and back exercise isn’t easy, but the results are worth it. If you find this too easy for some reason, you would want to wear a weighted vest (as you could with the pushup as well if needed).
Complete your set to failure and move right into the knee drive sit-ups. This six pack abs and oblique movement is the perfect compliment to the pullup since you can perform it on the floor right below the bar without skipping a beat. Once again, three sets of this combo without rest is what you need to do for this bodyweight routine.
Finally, we hit the legs with a bodyweight rolling squat. If this is too easy for you, either slap on a weighted vest of do a single leg version of this exercise. Of course, you can even do a weighted single leg version for an extreme challenge. Your abs rest period exercise is the hollow rock. You perform this for 45 seconds each time.
Complete your fat burning home abs workout by doing 5 minutes of jump rope or an equivalent exercise that will keep your heart pounding and your fat burning on high.
