Ever since the iconic image of Usher's album cover for 8701 first appeared, the man's six-pack abs have become the stuff of legend. We've teamed up with trainer Cliff "Hollywood" Boyce to show just how you can get Usher's abs.

Directions

At least three times per week, Usher completes this ab circuit. He does a move for 30 seconds, then, after a 10-second rest, runs on the treadmill for two minutes. He repeats with the next movement until he's done with each exercise.

His goal: Five circuits in less than an hour. Make that your goal, and incorporate this workout into your regular fitness routine, to achieve similarly shredded results.
