Shelter in Shape: Ab Ripper Flex

Don't just settle for Ab Ripper X. Make it an Ab Ripper Flex.

AUSTIN, Texas — Today's workout is called "Ab Ripper Flex" – a combination of the popular P90X workout "Ab Ripper X" with two other exercises in a total of three rounds.

Begin with a one-minute wall sit.

Then pivot to a two-minute plank.

Follow that with all 11 moves and 25 reps of Ab Ripper X.

For the wall-sit portion, place your back directly against the wall and bend your knees until they form a 90-degree angle. Place your hands out in front of you, behind your head or straight down.

For the plank portion, feel free to experiment with different base width. Try to keep your back as parallel to the ground as possible.

For the entire workout, it's better to concentrate on form than speed.
