Your abs are like any other body part—to get results, you need to work them hard. That means dedicating a portion of your workout to moves that focus on all three abdominal regions. “We tend to treat the abs as an afterthought and simply devote a few minutes to doing crunches after our ‘real’ training,” notes Muscle & Fitness Hers technical adviser Gino Caccavale. But to sculpt a shapely six-pack, you need to train the abs like your legs, shoulders, or any other body part. 

These ab exercises, modeled by two-time Fitness Olympia and IFBB pro Oksana Grishina, will help you build a sexy midsection by emphasizing different muscle groups with each workout. Do these abs exercises and add 30 minutes of cardio daily to help burn fat. And don’t forget your diet: Watch your total caloric intake and macros. Otherwise, you’re not likely to get the results you want, adds Caccavale. In one month, you should see a noticeable difference in shape and definition for abs you’ll love.
