This 1,000-Rep Ab Challenge Will Test the Limits of Your Core Strength

No kidding. The magic number is 1,000.

We all like a good challenge and we all love a great ripped abs workout, right?

I've combined the two to give you the 1,000-rep ab challenge.

This has been my go-to for abs for a long time now. I hate having to think about my workout, and this ripped abs workout just flat out works.

Get your workout partner, family member or whoever wants to join you and do this 1,000-rep ab challenge either before or after your next workout.

How to Do It

  • Remember the number 10; that's how many reps you will do at each move.
  • Hit 10 reps at Move 1.
  • Immediately go to Move 2 and hit 10 reps.
  • Hit 10 reps at each subsequent move.
  • Go back to Move 1 and repeat for 10 rounds.

Add it up and you get 1,000 reps of abs done. Time yourself and see how fast you can do it!

The Moves

  1. V-Ups
  2. Plank Walk-Ups
  3. Straight Leg Lifts
  4. Hip Heists
  5. Alt Leg V-Ups
  6. Plank Jacks
  7. Knee Up Sit-Ups (2 each side)
  8. Donkey Kicks
  9. Bicycles (each side)
  10. Seated Back Strokes

As you can see, there are a lot of moves in this workout. My suggestion is to get a piece of paper, whiteboard or any type of sign you can see during the workout—something you can glance at to remind yourself.

Set the timer, do the moves, get 1,000 reps and be ready to start seeing those abs poke out in the mirror!
