But abs? Abs are a different story. Too many guys sweat through hundreds of boring, awkward crunches on the dirty gym floor only to look down and see…no progress.
So, first off, let’s acknowledge a hard truth: Not all abs are created equal. While some dudes seem to get their abs to pop without a single situp, most guys need to work their belly to exhaustion before they can carve out a six-pack.
Regardless of where you fit on that spectrum, effectively training the core comes down to the three planes of motion: frontal, sagittal, and transerve. Hitting all three with different exercises in a circuit keeps your workout intensity high, maximizes your progress toward sculpted abs, and can even lead to greater fat loss.
