Abdominal Exercises with TT AAA Abs Workout A

July 19, 2010

Now that you are warmed up, you’re going to start this workout with a tri-set or a mini circuit.

Move right into the maximum number of underhanded grip chin-ups in perfect form. With your palms facing toward you and your hands about shoulder width apart or slightly wider, pull yourself up so your chin is over the bar. Pull up and slowly back down.

If you can’t do chin-ups, you can substitute these with underhand inverted rows or you can skip this one. For inverted rows, set your bar up and grip the bar with your palms facing back. Row your chest up to the bar and back down. Do the maximum amount of reps.

Without rest, move immediately into push-ups. Again, you’ll do the maximum number of push-ups as you can for this. When you do these, you’ll probably only going to be able to do about 60-70% of your normal maximum push up number.

Move immediately into dumbbell forward lunges, alternating sides. You can either do these in the same place or do walking lunges.

Rest 1 minute and repeat this circuit 1 more time. This is a little bit of competition for your grip, so you won’t have great results in the second round, but after you’ve done this workout for a couple of weeks, you will see improvement with your performance with the second round, especially in the number of push-ups after doing the chin-ups.

In the next superset you will start with dumbbell step-ups. Put one foot up onto a bench and pull yourself up by driving through your heel. Slowly lower back down with putting all of your weight on your lead leg. Repeat this on the other side.

Move immediately into dumbbell pullovers on the stability ball. If you are not comfortable with your balance on the ball, you can do this movement on the bench instead. By using the ball, this will allow a little more of a stretch in your abdominals, which is what were after with this. Slide out on the ball and keep your hips bridged up at all times. Hold the dumbbell straight up and slowly lower it back down and stretch out. Contract your abdominals on the way up. Make sure you keep your hips up throughout the entire exercise for perfect form.

The final superset will start with renegade rows with dumbbells. Its best to use the hexagon dumbbells on a flat surface so they stay in place. If you only have rounded dumbbells, you will want to use dumbbell rows instead or you can even use kettlebells.

Place the dumbbells under you in the push-up position with your body in a straight line and your abs braced and your feet apart. Your external obliques are going to work really hard to maintain that straight body position. Row the dumbbell up and slowly back down, while minimizing the movement at your hips. Keep this very strong and very straight.

Move immediately into 2 handed kettlebell swings. Swing down and back up driving through your hips.

Finish this workout with bodyweight interval training. This is really a unique training program, but probably one of the hardest ones that I’ve put together.

Start out with 10 squat jumps, rest for 10 seconds and then repeat this 3 more times, for a total of 4 sets of 10.

Next you will do 10 pogo calf jumps, rest for 10 seconds and then repeat this 3 more times, for a total of 4 sets of 10. Bounce on the balls of your feet and bring your toes up as you jump up.

After that you’ll do 10 stability ball jackknifes, rest for 10 seconds and repeat this 3 more times for a total of 4 sets of 10. You can either do these with your hands on the floor or on a bench. If you are more advanced, you can hold a plank position for the 10 second rest.

Finally, finish this out with 5 Turkish get-ups per side, rest for 10 seconds and repeat this 3 more times for a total of 4 sets. Keep your arm extended up the entire time.

Make sure you perform this circuit on a softer surface, not on pavement or concrete. The best place would be out on the grass or a soccer field. Make sure you are landing properly too. If you are not comfortable with the jumps, just so bodyweight squats or jumping jacks or something else that is lower impact.

Train hard and train safe!
