The short but intense nature of the Abs Strength Guide workouts make them ideal as a warm-up to Lift Hard Play Hard. They can take the place of the ab exercises in the Lift Hard Play Hard program and make the 40 minute workout more potent by raising the body's metabolic rate. A fast metabolism increases the efficiency of the body to burn excess calories from body-fat.
Since they work different muscle groups, It is suggested to alternate workouts A and B throughout the week (resting every 2 days). Monday workout A, Tuesday workout B, Wed rest, Thursday workout A, Friday workout B and so on.. this will give your muscles time to rest and get stronger for the next session.
Abs Strength Guide Application
ASSG workouts are intended to be 50/10, meaning that you perform 50 seconds of work, followed by 10 seconds of transition time between exercises. If you need to take more time to recover in the beginning, just remember that you're building up to full intensity. Naturally, results come fastest with the intended format, but you'll get great results either way. Just so long as you're sticking to the 10 min a day, 5 days a week schedule, it's perfectly okay to do a lower level of the same exercise (as long as you keep it at 9/10 intensity). The key to continuous fat burn is keeping the heart rate up, so don't be too focused on form. However, you should gradually work your way to doing the recommended form for continuous progress and avoid reaching muscular plateau.
