Aesthetic 8 pack abs workout program

Updated on October 5, 2017

How to get 8 pack abs

Getting 8 pack abs like a Hollywood star or a fitness model is every guys dream and it is attainable, it is just that too many of us guys do not put in the effort that is needed in order to get that flat stomach that women go crazy for at the beach. There are 3 ways to get 8 pack abs and only a combination of the 3 methods will get you the results that you want.

Step 1

Diet is the first step to the success rate of any exercise, if you eat junk food all the time and all you drink is liquor and soft drinks than you are never going to get the results you want. So basically you need to clean up you diet and remove the sugary and high fat content and replace the bad fat with the good fat such as omega 3 fat found in nuts and fish, use olive oil to cook your food, do not eat things with too much sugar, access sugar is changed and stored as fat in your body. The next thing you have to do is to eat an increased amount of protein so as to increase you muscle growth and recovery especially after a workout. This will take you a long way towards building your dream physique and you will get your beach ready abs.

step 2

Once you have your workout in check, you now have the task of building and thickening your abs so that they are developed enough to be skin tight and pop out. At this point I would like to add that your ab structure is genetic therefore some of you may only be able to build four pack or 6 pack abs and also the lower abs are much harder to bring out, so you will struggle to make them as defined as your upper abs.

Your ab region will be divided into 3 regions for the purposes of this workout plan, the obliques, the upper and lower abs. You need to target each region to get the best results. I will also now inform you that it does not matter which ab exercise you do as long as it targets each of those ab regions and it is challenging. The key is to do as many reps and sets till failure at-least twice a week. I will now give you a few exercises you could do:

  • crunches
  • reverse crunches
  • sit-ups
  • jackknife sit-up exercise
  • hanging leg raises
  • hanging oblique twists
  • weighted crunches
  • crunchy frogs
  • v-ups
  • planks

There are a lot of other effective ab exercises but you cannot do them all, just focus on a few and do a lot of reps, as I said before the key is pushing yourself to your limits so your body does not get used to your workout. I suggest you do a giant rep for sit-ups 500+ or you do it in 3 or 4 sets of 100+ reps, for the other exercise you could do 4 sets of 20-25 reps, of course combining 2 or 3 of those exercises will do you some good, your abs need to burn as you struggle to do those last reps.

step 3

finally the last step is to reveal all the hard work of your dieting and workout by burning the layer of stomach fat by doing cardio. Cardio is not my favourite part of working out but it is necessary to get ripped and cut to show of your stomach bumps that you have built up. You can either do traditional cardio which is boring old jogging or riding at the same pace on a bike at the gym or you can do high intensity interval training but doing timed sprints between a measured distance. There are other cadio methods such as participating in a sport with high activity, like playing soccer, dancing, swimming, martial arts and a lot of other high activity sports that will increase your heart rate and metabolic rate.


If you follow steps 1-3 you will definitely get visible results and you can go to the beach or the pool and show of your abs. The workout program is incomplete without any 1 of those steps, diet is the most important step of them all. I wish you luck but you will not need it if you are determined and disciplined.

      Thanks for the awesome comment dude. You make a good point to mention which region each ab exercise targets. Problem with many people is they want quick results, so they never try anything that is long term or difficult to do, they usually end up falling for scams that promise abs in 2 weeks.

      Good hub :) There are some really good points in this Hub for people to use. If they think they can do it they can, and if they think they can't, they can't. A lot of people just give up after a few weeks of no results but people need to push through that because sometimes for different people it takes time. I would like to point out that on your exercises for abs you might want to put beside them which area of abs they are for, like which place each one targets because you said you need to target the three areas. I know where it targets but im an exercise nut as well. Great hub though Voted Useful :)
