Ab Routine – For Cutting

Weighted Sit Ups or Cable Crunch

8-12 reps x 3 sets

For the weighted sit-ups, try not to use your legs and focus on your abdominals. For the cable crunch, try not to use your arms to force the weight down, concentrate on curling your abs to bring the weight down, your arms shouldn’t really move at all.

This primarily targets the upper abs.
