Why Weighted Ab Exercises Are A MUST For RIPPED ABS (+ the best ones)

Today’s video breaks down the best weighed ab exercises and gives you a few ideas on how to set up a weighted ab workout you can stay consistent with. I believe weighted ab training is a must for visible six pack abs and for maximizing how good your six pack can look. There is an old school thought that you don’t need to train abs directly to achieve an eye popping visible six pack and that you just need to get lean enough where you don’t have a layer of fat covering them. After all, Abs are made in the kitchen, right? While you certainly have to be fairly lean to see ripped abs, I’ve been able to get my abs to pop a lot more even at 12-13% body-fat this past year because I have incorporated the best weighted ab exercises into my training, and built my abs up a lot more because of it. I’m also going to share with you a powerful six pack abs technique called “activation before overload” that will help you get the most out of every set of your ab training. It’s important to understand that your abs are a MUSCLE GROUP and in order for your abs to grow you need to put overload and time under tension on them just like any other muscle group. The best time to build your abs is actually when you are lean bulking as the calorie surplus will help you grow your abs. If you are preparing a lean bulk like myself soon I recommend that you train your abs with this complete weighted abs workout i’m about to show you 2-3 times per week.
