The best workout for a six pack isn’t what you might think. If you want six-pack abs, you don’t need to do crunches all day. You need to focus on the best workout routine that will skyrocket you to peak fitness now, and for the rest of your life.
The best workout for a flat stomach and six pack abs? Running. Yes, it probably doesn’t sound appealing at first, but if you can maintain a routine of running at least 3 days per week, you will lose body fat and get lean very quickly.
Unless you’re playing a sport like tennis, rowing, or soccer, running at a good pace for 20-30 minutes is simply the best workout you can possibly do for torching fat and getting shredded. Mission Lean combines great running workouts with other strength based routines to achieve a maximum result of lean, toned muscle. But if you’ve been going to the gym for many years, or are just starting out, and haven’t been incorporating running into your routine, you need to start doing it now.
Why is running so effective for six pack abs?
Running works for six pack abs because you’re able to burn off visceral fat that would otherwise be hiding your ab muscles. Don’t let running intimidate you–it’s so important for lean fitness and should be done every other day, if possible.
Make a great playlist on your phone or iPod, and get at it. Start at an easier pace and work your way up to a faster one. You can also watch more of our videos about how to become a runner right here on this channel.
