Plyo Your Way to Shredded Abs

Snap Fitness

We all know abs are built in the kitchen, but your workouts make a difference too. There are many ways to build core muscles and burn fat. There are slow-burn crunches and total-body circuits, but what about plyometrics?

 

Adding plyometrics into your cardio program allows you to quickly boost your total calorie burn. I usually follow this routine with a superset of ab exercises to work my muscles hard in a short period of time. Tip: No two workouts should be the same. I use a combo of different moves or change the order to keep my muscles guessing.
