Six-pack with a Barbell?

Want to bring out the six pack?  Ditch the crunches for a few workouts and throw some Full Contact Twists into your workout.  Honestly, they are one of the most challenging exercises you’ll ever do for the abs.  Try it and you’ll immediately know what I mean.  Here’s how to do it and how it looks.

  • Place weight on one end of a barbell.
  • Place the barbell so that one end is anchored on the floor in a position where it will not slide and the  weighted end is up in the air.
  • Grasp the barbell with both hands close together (one directly above the other) approximately 12′ from the bar end.
  • The bar should be at a 50-60 degree angle.
  • Keeping your arms straight, slowly lower the bar to one side, twisting your body and allowing the foot (opposite the side you’re twisting towards) to pivot.  Slowly rotate the bar back to the start position and lower it to the opposite side.
  • Continue this motion for the desired number of repetitions.

Here’s how it looks on one side:





And of course, we have a custom video to go along with it.
Give this movement a try and see what you think.  Post you comments below.

Thanks everyone – keep training hard.
