[Workout Plans] The ULTIMATE, Ryan Reynolds Six Pack Abs Workout

Looking to carve up a six pack like Ryan Reynolds!? Do this routine 2-3x per week. Assuming your body fat is low enough, you’ll start seeing baby abs sprout within a few short weeks, and MONSTER abs proliferate within a few months.

The ULTIMATE, Ryan Reynolds Six Pack Abs Workout is well-rounded and smashes everything: including the rectus abdominis (aka the six pack muscles), the lower abs, the obliques, and even the transverse abdominis — the inner section that vacuums the entire torso in nice and tight. It’s like a delicious salad of abtacular proportions; designed with a series of high quality ingredients sprinkled throughout to ultimately bring together one rock hard, defined, cohesive core.

It’s going to BURN and feel like you got punched in the gut 2,796x the day after, but that’s breakdown and new GROWTH — incarnate. Live for it. Savor it. Progress (and pain) rarely feels more rewarding.

And if you’re a lady, it won’t give you the grizzled Ryan Reynolds look — you’ll craft a svelte, defined Marisa Miller stomach. Yum.

Take 30 seconds of rest in between each set. If it’s too difficult at first and you need to cut back on reps and/or add more rest time, that’s completely fine — cater it to your own level of ab strength and gradually work your way up over time.

For weighted exercises, continue to increase the weight as your abs get stronger.

  • Pat

    How many repetitions in each set?

  • Jay

    When your doing 1 and 1a, 3 and 3a and 5 and 5a, are you supersetting? As in doing a set of hanging leg raises and without taking a break doing the hanging knee raises, then getting off the machine

    • Exactly, those are all supersets. Do your best to remove all rest, but if it’s too difficult at first, complete the sets as close together as possible.

      • Jay

        Thank you! I appreciate the response!

  • Julia

    Are there any ways to substitute exercises without gym equipment?

  • hamza

    how many seconds or minutes we should rest after each set??

    • Keep it as brief as possible. 30-45 seconds, ideally.

  • Pearla Perkins

    If somebody helps me out get the six pack I will definitely believe and even buy they stuff!!! Perla.perez@gmail.com

  • Enkhnaran

    how much weight do i use on russian twists

    • Keep it in between 5-25 pounds.

      • Enkhnaran

        thank you so much for replying

      • Enkhnaran

        and i am also doing this workout plan at home is there any exercise to replace cable crunches?

        • There’s no exact replacement — they’re really unique in that they let you apply a huge load to your core without compromising your back/neck/etc.

          I’d swap them out for bicycle crunches. Shoot for 45 reps per set.

  • luis

    how many times a week ?

    • Do it 2-3x per week. Let your abs rest at least 1 day in between each ab workout.
