A one month ab workout program to build core musculature and abdominal strength may be necessary for you to do to tighten up your midsection, which will build a foundation for the health of your overall musculoskeletal system. Not only does a six pack look great, but the overall importance of core musculature health is often overlooked. Let’s break it down to the bare bones… Literally. From your pelvis all the way up to the top of your head, your spinal column is the only bony structure that supports more than 2/3 of your body weight. This includes an abdominal cavity full of organs and soft tissue, both of your arms and your head. If you have weak abdominal muscles, you will have poor posture, which can eventually lead to premature degeneration of the discs and bones in your spine. When this occurs, nerves (including your spinal cord) can become compressed, which leads to pain and weakness in your extremities. So yes… While having a six pack will surely turn heads, the underlying importance of building strong abs is clearly a priority and a good reason to invest your next 30 days into a one month ab workout program.

While this one month ab workout program will undoubtedly improve your core strength, you also have to make sure that you start or maintain a healthy, low-calorie diet throughout this month to keep the fat over your midsection to a minimum. It’s like having a car with a brand new, high-powered engine, but the  paint on the outside is falling off the car and the tires are flat… To be straight with you — the most difficult aspect of dieting is self-control! If you want to lose weight, you will need to eat healthy. The rules are simple. Out of all of the foods that you eat, 1/2 should be fruits and vegetables, 1/4 protein (meats and beans) and the other 1/4 should be complex carbohydrates, such as brown rice and cereal. Some great website are available to help you out, such as MyPlate.gov. Weight watchers also is an excellent program. Regardless of all of this — the most important thing is that you have to want this…

On the other end, you must perform at least a 20-30 minute cardiovascular workout 3-5 times per week to burn those additional calories over you midsection so your 6-pack can shine through!

Now that you know what you need to do to make this work, let’s get on to the one month ab workout plan!
