Military Workouts That Could Give you Six Pack Abs

by : Matt Shuebrook

Just a few days ago this military Sergeant emails me looking for fitness advice. He says he needed a workout routine to give his 30+ team of solidiers that will excel them in performance so that they would pass any tests that they might have to take with flying covers.

The message that he gave me was that his team had completely plautoed

Keep reading below as I will tell you all about the workout that I gave him to give to his team. Keep in mind though that this workout is one of the most advanced BODY WEIGHT workouts that one can endure, obviously its not THE most advanced, but it is certinly not easy..

With that said, keep in mind that if you're not yet at an advanced level, you can still use this by simply using the basic format of the workout, and just do less of whatever exercises you struggle with, or choose an easier alternate exercise that's similar.

Ok so here is the workout and my response...

"Hi J****. To get your soldiers to that next level in their workouts, we're going to keep the intensity super high here and use the whole body. Keep rest periods short, and use full-body multijoint movements as much as possible.

I'll give you a killer workout idea below that not only workouts your abs and obligues, but the entire body as well in a very intense manner. Even if you do not have equipment you will be able to do this workout. Here's an example to take your men through:

Make sure you always start with a 2-3 min warmup of light jogging, jumping jacks, or jump rope.

Once you are warmed up you can then, move through these exercises in a circuit fashion, one move right after the other with only 10 seconds rest between each (repeat the circuit 3-5 times for a killer total body workout):

1. BW (body weight) squats - 12 reps

2. power pushups (clapping) - 10 reps

3. walking lunges ( you will go forward 6 steps and and then back 6 steps)

4. floor mountain climbers for 30 seconds (these will knock the wind out of you)

5. lunge jumps - 6 reps to each side

6. lying leg thrusts (abs) on floor - 12 reps

7. squat jumps - 8 reps

8. side plank hold 30 seconds one side, then 30 sec opposite side

Rest 2 min after each circuit; repeat circuit 3-5x

If you take them through that workout and they still can't past the test, then quite frankly I don't think that they will ever pass the test.
