When someone first mentioned the words "8 pack abs" to me, I honestly thought they were crazy. Getting six pack abs is more than I signed up for; an 8 pack is just flat out senseless.

But I don't think so anymore...

I found out later on that 8 pack abs are indeed attainable. A little determination, a healthy diet, and plenty of exercise can get you that 8 pack.

Today, I'm going to focus on that last point - EXERCISE. With all the new technology that are keeping us preoccupied nowadays, exercise has been pushed down the hobbies list by some of you. If you think about it, it does require a lot of time and energy. But keeping your eye on the prize only makes the journey so worthwhile.

There's no better time to start than here and now. These 4 abdominal muscles exercises are the most basic drills you can do to get 8 pack abs:

1. Weighted Sit Ups

2. Bicycles

3. Full Body Crunches

4. Curls

Weighted Sit Ups

Anything that simulates a small amount of weight, like a hardbound book or a small bag of rice, will be useful in this exercise. When my kitchen's running low on supplies, I simply take a zip-lock bag, fill it with soil, and seal it tight.

Now, lay on the ground with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place the weight over your chest and secure it with your hands. Lift your shoulders off the floor slowly without moving the lower half of your body. Always contract those abdominal muscles. Once you're at an angle, hold that position for as long as you possibly can, then lower your shoulders back to the floor slowly. Doing this simple exercise regularly will help you get those 8 pack abs.


This one's my favorite out of the bunch. Basically, with this exercise, you just lie down on the floor and begin cycling in air. While you're doing that, place your hands behind your ears and twist your upper body toward the direction of your bent knee.

Full Body Crunches

They say that the most challenging exercise of all will only give you the best results. This, right here, will definitely push you to get those killer abs.

While still lying on the floor, rest your hands over your chest, and bend your knees once again. Now, come up as you would when you perform a regular crunch. Here comes the tricky part: while doing the crunches, try lifting your lower body at the same time. Your target is to form a sort of horse shoe shape with your body every time you go in for that crunch. Hold that position while you keep your abs tight, and then go back to your original position.


This is a lot like the upper body crunch, but instead of just focusing on the number of reps you do, you will be paying more attention to tightening your ab muscles and maintaining your form. Place both hands on your abdomen and feel it get tighter. Curl your back slowly as you lean those shoulders in, then uncurl at an equal pace back to the ground.

So, here's the truth on six pack abs: Those who say that 8 pack abs are impossible to achieve are just too lazy to try it out themselves. Keep an open mind, work hard, and you can achieve ANYTHING!
