While the most obvious benefit of The 30-Minute Abs Workout Program is a shredded midsection you can flaunt in the gym, it's worth pointing out that having muscular abs isn't just for show.

Reducing body fat in your midsection can actually help reduce back pain as well as increase your overall flexibility and agility. So building your abs will not only make your look better, but also greatly benefit your health.


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