If you are wondering how certain men and women are claiming to have achieved sexy, six-pack abs in the comfort of their homes, then you have come to the right place. Here, you will learn what Ab Ripper X is all about, what you need in order to do it, how often you should do it, and how exactly you should perform it to get the coveted six pack abs.
What Is Ab Ripper X?
Ab Ripper X is a strength training type of workout which is part of the P90X commercial home exercise regimen developed by American fitness guru, Tony Horton. It contains 11 abdominal exercises requiring you to do 25 repetitions for each hence 275 repetitions altogether that last for about 16 to 20 minutes. The program focuses on your core and abdominal muscles and is popularly used for creating sexy, six-pack abs.
Unlike other workout routines that require heavy exercise machines, you will need nothing but your mat, towel, and a bottle of water with Ab Ripper X.
How Often Is It Done?
The ideal number of times you should do the Ab Ripper X is no more than three times a week. Like the rest of your body muscles, your abdomen needs time to recover so it could get in shape. When it is at rest from your routine, your muscles start to repair and build stronger and thicker muscle tissues.
How Is It Done?
The following are exercises comprising the Ab Riipper X which require 25 repetitions each.
1. Ins and Outs – This exercise requires you to sit down on the mat with your legs straight in front of you and your hands placed on your sides near the buttocks. Lift your legs a little off the ground and pull your knees into your chest then straighten them back out. You can also put your hands in the air as you do the repetitions. This exercise does not only target your abs but your thighs and hips as well.
2. Bicycles – While you’re in the same position and with your hands either raised or on your sides, imagine yourself riding an imaginary bike in mid-air. Move your legs as you would pedal a bicycle and after 25 repetitions, do the reverse.
