You want a sexy, shredded abs. You've come to the right place. We're about to show you the best at-home workout for shredded abs. BodyRock is in the business of helping people realize their body goals healthfully, realistically and of course, effectively. Everyone has the ability to get great abs, but we're not going to lie: it takes a whole lot of hard work, commitment and sweat. 

So much sweat.

In addition to eating a clean diet, getting your abs to pop requires workout consistency--and not just any workout will do. Crunches and sit-ups have their place in a well-rounded ab workout, but they alone won't cut it if you want cut abs. To get those, you need to take a more holistic approach to training, building up the lean muscle mass in your entire body so that you can more readily torch fat from everywhere, while also smashing ALL the muscles in your core. We're talking glutes. We're talking hamstrings. We're talking erector spinae, obliques, hip flexors, and yes, abdominals. 

We're talking too much, so let's get to the workout. 

The Best At-Home Workout for Shredded Abs

We're going to combine a killer combo of heavy, resistance-based moves with lighter plyometric moves to really get your fat burning engines revving. The result? Leaner, sexier, shredded abs--when you do this workout consistently, of course. And don't be afraid to challenge yourself with heavy resistance! Challenge is what breeds CHANGE.

Since it’s core week, you can all the gear used in this workout for 20% off. Just use promocode CORE20, so no excuses, k?

The breakdown:

The workout is only around 20 minutes, but will yield insane gains overtime. Some of these exercises are timed, and some are rep-based. The reason is, as Lisa-Marie says, "you can't cheat a rep!" 

We want to make sure you're really pushing yourself, and in a timed exercise your reps per round can vary depending on how tired you are. But, if you know you simply have to smash out 25 reps, then you HAVE to do it, no matter how long it takes.

You feeling us?

Good! Then let's get started. Perform this workout as a circuit. Take 10 seconds rest between moves if needed. 

Press & Point Jump Squat - 15 reps

Recommended gear:Dumbbells

Tips: Keep your spine strong and straight. The weight should be heavy, but not so heavy that it pulls you forward.

Lunge + Twist - 60 seconds

Recommended gear:Sculpt Bar

Tips: Twist slowly! Don’t rush the movement, which could cause injury.

Mountain Climber - 60 seconds

Recommended gear:Balance Trainer

Tips: The Balance Trainer adds an extra challenge to this move. If it is too much, perform the mountain climber on the floor. Keep your hips parallel with the floor and do not allow your lower back to sag. Pull your belly-button into your spine to maintain core engagement, and breathe fully throughout the move.

Kneeling Thrust-15 reps

Recommended gear:Core Bands

Tips: Focus on squeezing your glutes as you reach the top of the movement. 

Star Abs - 15 reps

Recommended gear:Pink Thing

Tips: Pull your belly-button into your spine and do not allow your low-back to leave the floor. If you find the move too challenge, try it without The Pink Thing or just focus working with this resistance band on the lower body.

Remember: use promo code CORE20 for 20% off all this gear for the best workout for shredded abs. Tag us onFacebook orInstagram once you’ve done this workout and let us know how you did. Or, just comment below. We also love to hear fromour #FitFam!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
