Getting ripped six pack abs is hard to do if you are only working on the ab muscles. There is so much more than needs to go into the workout then just focusing on your core strength. What you need to do is a total body conditioning program that will burn away the fat and Insanity is that program.
Fitness trainer Shaun T has developed Insanity to be the hardest at home conditioning program ever made. What he has done is taken interval training and flipped it upside down. In the past interval training would be short bursts of speed with long rests. Insanity is done with long bursts of intense movements followed by short breaks. Doing so will build your strength up and get your metabolism going. Insanity is so challenging that the warm up will leave you dripping in sweat. Be prepared to be drenched in sweat at the end of each workout as you are pushing yourself to the max each and every time.
How Insanity works is it is done 6 days a week over a 60 day period with a one week rest week in between. Each of the 10 workouts are about 45 minutes long. While this workout is more of a cardio workout you will be throwing in a lot of resistance training as your body weight will be used to get you the lean look you are looking for. The last 30 days of Insanity take the first 30 days workouts and make them even harder. Your cardio and strength will be pushed to the max. If you have ever played sports in your life the best way to describe it would be two a day practices squeezed into 45 minutes.
Since Insanity is a total body conditioning program you will be using your abs as the main muscle through out it as you will need to have built up a strong core area to complete the moves. On certain days of the week you will be doing a 12 minute ab workout after the 45 minute work. When you get to the point of completing both of those you will be well on your way to getting a lean muscular look.
Even though Insanity is primarily a total body workout it is also a excellent ab exercise for men. You are doing so much moving around during such a short period of time that your abs will begin to start showing in no time. To help you get your abs showing there is also the Insanity Elite Nutrition Plan. It is a simple and easy to follow meal plan which will tell you what foods to eat.
