Workout of the Week: Abs for Two

How about some abs to go along with your next workout?

Today’s workout is another partner workout. Find a friend and get ready to shed some belly fat!

Everyone wants washboard abs. They want to look like those supermodels you’ll see in fitness magazines…

Here’s a workout you’ll both love. One person will do 30 reps, then the two of you will switch. Once you both complete 30 reps, you’ll move on to the next station.

Let’s go get some six packs!
