Mountain Climbers Is One of The Best Abs Exercise Ever

By: Tim Williams..

Tired of the usual and boring abs exercises that dont even produce results? This article is intended to help you find out how to get flat abs through using a workout that provides high intensity stabilization techniques. Changing up an abs exercise routine can help you produce a higher intensity work out which is going to speed up your results.
I am going to present a great high intensity workout you can do to get ripped abs that dont even directly point to straight up abs exercise at all. This work out it set up in a tri-set format (similar to a super set).
Here goes:
1a. Renegade Dumbbell Rows
1b. Front Squats with Barbell
1c. Mountain Climbers on Floor
For each exercise, 3-4 sets of 8 reps would be a great rep scheme to follow. You can also do more sets and less reps, 5 sets of 5 reps or something like that. Mountain climbers can be done for a time interval (such as 30 seconds) instead of "reps".
To do renegade dumbbell rows, start in a pushup position with your hands on two dumbbells. Then, row one dumbbell up while keeping your body stabilized with the other arm.~ Bring the dumbbell back to the ground and alternate the rowing arm while stabilizing with the opposite arm. So how does this work out my abs you may be asking? The stabilizing effect during the rows it what creates work for your abdominal. Dont think your abs are getting a workout, wait til you feel it in the morning!
Front squats as you most likely guessed it are just like back squats, only difference being that you are positioning the barbell in front of your body on the front of your shoulders rather than on the upper back. Get the barbell on your shoulders while crossing your arms to stabilize, and push your firsts into the bar against your shoulders being sure to keep your elbows out in front of your body.
This takes a little practice at first, so you will want to seek a professional trainer at your gym to help you with the form. Front squats require extreme stabilization strength from the abs due to the barbell weight being shifted to the front of the body instead of the back. Even though this is mostly a leg exercise, you'll feel this one in the abs big time!
Just like the renegade dumbbells, mountain climbers have a starting position of a pushup. You then shuffle the your feet in and out so that your knees come up to your chest and back out to the starting position. It gets its workout name due to the fact that it simulates climbing a mountain but you are flat on the floor.
After finishing each exercise, rest about 30 seconds before starting the next exercise. Rest about 1-2 minutes after completing each "tri-set" before repeating.
This will give you one of the best ab workouts you've ever had without even doing any direct ab exercises. You'll see what I mean after you try it!
