Now THIS is what I’m talking ’bout! Finally a Rev Abs workout that was so hard I couldn’t even do as many reps as Brett and company! Just like Merciless Abs, all three rounds are the same exercises, and here they are in order:
*WOODCHOPPER: Hold one dumbbell. Step out into a side lunge and chop the dumbbell down like an axe.
*RENEGADE ROW: Get two dumbbells and put them on the floor. You are going to do a push-up. (It looks like when Tony Horton uses the push-up bars in P90X.) At the top of your push-up, you do an upward row with each dumbbell.
*SIDE SQUAT: Step out to the side for a squat. When you come back in, press the dumbbells overhead.
*HOEBEL CURL: This move was probably the biggest pain. You do a bicep curl, but you bring your arms up so high that your elbows are at the same height as your shoulder. At this point the dumbbells are in front of your face. You open your arms up wide, almost like you are playing peek-a-boo. Bring them back together, then drop them back down.
*QUEDA DE QUATRO: Sit on the floor with your legs in front of you. Push your abs up to the ceiling so you are in a “table” position. Then drop back down but KEEP YOUR BUTT OFF THE FLOOR.
*MARTELO COMBO: At first you do 8 reps of stepping out to the side. After that you add a knee. Finally you do 8 kicks. This is followed by stepping out to the side again, then 8 squats. Repeat on the other side.
