This program is strictly to increase your abdominal and core strength. Just like any workout program you need rest time to help your muscles recover. If you are trying to make your abs show by losing the fat over top, you will need a circuit type workout program with a good weight loss meal plan. It should take you about 15-20 minutes per day three times per week for this advanced core workout routine.
A planned nutritional meal plan is one of the most important aspects of any body composition change. Please see the nutrition section to learn about protein, carbohydrates and fats. The bottom line is to make sure to get 6 small meals during the day all having protein, veggies and fruit. Carbohydrates and protein during and after a workout for muscle recovery. This is needed for increasing muscle mass which will help with your basal metabolic rate (BMR).
All routines benefit from changing the sets, weight and reps week to week. This will help prevent a plateau. An example is:
Alternate this exercise with a lower back exercise from day 1. Treat this as a circuit. After completing the lower back exercise take a 45 second brake and start over with this exercise. You can also do this with an exercise ball.
