Ever wonder why you can train abs over and over again and still not get the results you’re looking for? Check out this video where BPI Sports Co-Founder James Grage reveals some simple secrets for getting 6-pack abs.
James starts out with a basic ab exercise, the crunch. Now, to properly do a crunch, think about bringing your head toward your knees instead of up toward the ceiling. Just make sure you don’t pull on your neck or head. You should now feel a greater contraction throughout your entire abdominal region. Once you’ve mastered proper technique you can then add resistance into the exercise. High reps don’t build your abs or burn belly fat – you build your abs the same way you would build any other body part – with resistance.
