If you're doing free-weight exercises like squats, deadlifts, and overhead presses, your abs are probably getting a lot of training already. But what if you're not getting the results you want? No worries, we've got you covered.

With our 30-Minute Abs Workout Program, you can get the shredded midsection you want—without having to do a thousand crunches every day. This program includes 12 workouts total—three a week for four weeks.

To guarantee real results, we're doing challenging exercises like windshield wipers and renegade rows. Make sure you're not overexerting yourself, however: If you don't think you can handle four sets of each exercise, doing three is fine. Only you know how much your body can handle.

Directions:

Do all three exercises in order, doing 3–4 sets of each.

This is the first workout in the 12-workout series. You'll do three workouts a week, for four weeks.
