Brendan Meyers is a YouTuber with an excellent body that’s nevertheless highly attainable. This is an everyday guy clearly but there’s no questioning that his routines work.
This Brendan Meyers 2018 abs routine in particular is fast, effective and straightforward. At the same time, it involves some moves that many of us won’t have seen or used before.
To give this workout a go yourself, simply perform the moves in order while making sure not to break in between. There’s no need to do multiple rounds – you should find one is more than enough!
Start in sit up position but have your hands on your knees. Now roll your stomach upwards and slide your arms down your knees as you go. And repeat!
Start in plank, then lower your abs slightly towards the ground, then push your buttocks and stomach up in the air. This is great for the rectus abdominis and the transverse. That means a flat stomach with tons of definition.
This is a side plank, so you’ll be resting on one forearm with your body facing forward perpendicular to the ground. The other arm will be pointing directly up in the air.
Now you’re going to crunch your body down sideways and up. Remember to perform 12 on both sides.
These are like leg raises, except you’re starting from the top with your feet pointing up at the ceiling. What you’re then going to do is to do roll your legs even higher by moving up your back.
Butterflies are like V-Ups except you’re going to bring your arms out to the sides at the end of each rep, the bring them forward to touch your toes. Remember, your back and feet must remain perpetually off the ground!
Legs pointing straight in the air and back flat on the ground, you’re going to roll forward to touch those toes.
Keep your legs straight and then just perform little kicks.
Now keep your feet raised just above the ground by six inches. This is an isometric hold for the lower abs and it works wonders.
Next up come the crunches. The six inches refer to the fact that your legs are still going to be held that short distance above the ground.
Supermans work the lower back. Start on your stomach and then raise your feet and arms up simultaneously to engage the erector spinae.
This is the same as the plank, except one leg will be pointing up in the air behind you. Not only does this make the move harder, it’s actually a great stretch.
Flutter your legs as with the flutters earlier but lift the legs up all the way you go.
