Sure, you can eat your way to shredded abs, but you're not going to have much to brag about unless you build them in the gym!

You've done this workout four times by now, so you know how it goes, but don't let familiarity breed laziness. Every single exercise should be done with precision and a strong mind-muscle connection. Perform every crunch, twist, and raise with a clear picture in your mind of your abdominals doing the work.

When you're done crushing your core, hop onto a piece cardio equipment for a 50-minute ride. If you get bored, switch machines every 10 minutes or so!
