In order to get six pack abs fast, you will need a good set of abs workouts. In this post, I will show you the most effective ab exercises for both men and women. At the end of the post, you will have a good collection of exercises to start building the six pack.

1. Hanging legs raise

In this exercise, you will need a horizontal bar to start. Make sure to bar is high enough so your legs don’t touch the floor when you are exercising. Now, you will grab the bar and start the exercise. Remember to take a slightly wider than shoulder width grip. After that, raise your legs with your knee slightly bent. You don’t want to make it straight here. As the knee moves forward to the chest, you will also move the pelvic forward. There are a lot of people make the crucial mistake by keep the back straight. If you do so, you will not train the abs but the psoas. Now keep that pose for few seconds and slowly return to the free hanging pose (hanging with body straight).
You should repeat this exercise slowly and remember to keep the right pose (curve back and bent knee). Make sure your body doesn’t swing while practicing.

Put your hands at the back of your head. Now raise your shoulder and upper back off the ground till the new position create an angle around 30 degree to the original position. Hold the new pose for few seconds and slowly return to the initial pose.
