Now, we’re gonna take our abdominal training to the next level by incorporating bars into this workout.

Performing abdominal exercises on the pull-up or dip bar are a lot harder than doing them on the ground. Mainly because it requires a lot more effort, with more muscles working simultaneously together to achieve the exercise.

And, by lifting yourself or hanging, you’re applying all your body weight to your abdominal exercises, which requires a lot more stabilization and body control, which will engage deeper muscle fibers. Also flexes your abs and engages your abs differently.

When you’re hanging and you’re flexing your abs you have an upward flexion. And, when you’re lifting yourself up you have a downward flexion. You should be engaging your abdominals both ways if you really wanna make sure to have perfect six-pack abs.

Also, because you’re lifting yourself or hanging, it’s gonna require more effort. You’re going to be burning more fat while developing strength and muscle.

Not only will we be building strength, muscle, and endurance in our abdominals, we’re gonna be burning a ton of fat and calories with no equipment at all using high-intensity interval training.

Now, HIIT training is an effective form of cardio that involves short bursts of intense training, increasing our energy levels and heart rate, leading to more calories burned.

HIIT training has an after-burn effect that can last to 24 hours when you can continue to burn calories even after you’re done exercising, and this is why it’s most efficient as your body will still be burning calories while you continue throughout your day.

And since high-intensity interval training is done with short bursts of intense exercises, these style workout routines are a lot more challenging and intense, but they also can be completed in a shorter amount of time and they are just as effective, if not more effective. So this is one of the key elements to getting your six-pack abs.
