  • I made a workout for myself to do, because I don’t want to go to the gym and I don’t have much equipment. So I made a workout that I can do easily at home and in one work out I work on my abs, arms, legs, and butt, but I don’t know if I’m doing each workout long enough so will I still see a difference? or do I have to challenge myself more because my workout is pretty easy. Will I see any results? Or all I just wasting my time?

  • A tip for losing fat from belly: Lower your insulin levels. If you cut on carbs, belly fat is most likely the first thing to go away.

  • People, this shit ain’t that complicated. IF you want to see a nice six pack, it’s a simple 3 step process. 1.) Get your body fat % to 10% or less via diet and exercise. 2.) Workout your abs at least 2-3 days a week just like you would any other muscle group. So long as you fatigue those muscles, they will grow enough to have good definition. 3.) Get enough damn sleep. If you don’t get an average of 7hrs of sleep per night you will fuck everything up, starting with your hormones such as leptin, ghrelin, testosterone, and cortisol. Do those 3 things and you will have a nice defined six pack within 3-6mths if not less, (depending on how fat you are to begin with).

  • I watch this channel because he gets straight to the workout and gives the best advice on how to do the workouts properly. God bless you all.

  • Very good video man, will try to do today 4 sets of Crunches, reverse Crunches and Russian twists applying your tips + diet advice and let’s hope the abs will pop in 1-2 months

  • Is it only me? But i really can’t do sit-ups �� that’s why i always skip it in every exercise. I tried doing it so many times but i just can’t.

  • First of all thanks mike for the valuable video and I felt by watching this how difficult to get the abs than rest of the mussels group of the body.

  • How many of these YouTubers are taking hormones….. That’s the real question….. Don’t belive the hype…… This is clearly NOT a natural body….

  • Hi training pal I have a question, I do 12×5 sets of knee raises but it starts getting hard after 3 sets, is it still effective at building muscle or do I get muscle endurence?

  • Eating appropriate portions of food and general active workouts got me my abs and helped me lower my body fat percentage.
    Before that I just did as many sit-ups as I could humanly could do until one day I strained the muscles in my lower back.:(

  • I have an old thumb injury that keeps flaring up whenever I do a lot of plank variations. I really don’t know what to do. The doctor taped it and it is fine after a week of not putting weight on that hand but as soon as I go back to my normal work outs my wrist/thumb will hurt again. Up and down planks and all sorts of variations are a staple of almost every workout and I don’t know how to substitute:( does anyone have some alternative exercise ideas?

  • That ‘I’m gonna tell you in just a moment’ thing made me skip all the video and at the end i didnt learn anything. Just explain how to fix itafter explaning the mistake. That made me not watch the video, just sayin. Not hating

  • My back is always arched because of back problems (I mean my spine is curved like that since I was born) so I find it impossible to touch the floor with my back while doing ab workouts and I get a lot of back pain with some type of ab exercices. It really sucks

  • Thanks for the video Max. Good content. I think it’s great you indicated that Abs should not be trained everyday. I used to train them daily. I’m hoping that training them 3 times a week nowadays will make a difference.

    As PictureFit would say, “Abs are made in the gym and revealed in the kitchen.”

  • Hi I am your new subscriber… your videos are so informative and inspiring ��. Is 21 day abs fat focus excercises safe for Diastis Recti? For many years I excercise daily but I have mommy pooch, I want flat tummy like you. I have two college going kids. So after all these years, will my stomach be completely flat? I want flat stomach. Pls reply me.

  • Mistake #4 was me. I always do 22 days ab work out from this fitness YouTuber Jeff Cavalier, I finished and kept going but I stopped because I got hella bored. And then boom here I am with these important other abs work out!

  • For my girl’s who work on their feet a lot: please look up good push/pulling mechanics. HIP HINGE (don’t bend), and look into good posture. If you have bad back pain then you don’t have good posture (outside an injury etc). I have suffered for years please don’t be like me. My particular problem was “anterior pelvic tilt” (pelvis isn’t in correct position which causes excessive low back arch) and I wondered why my abs were so weak despite working out for years. Also look up how to walk correctly. I know that may sound ridiculous but after 8 hrs on ur feet it makes a difference!!
    Stretch. those. hip. flexors.

  • I feel like my back hurts bc I wanna keep it straight. I have scolisis and I REALLY focus on not arching my back when I exercise…it still hurts which never used to happen, does my back just need time to build up muscles the “correct” way?
