  1. Add protein to your diet

    Because getting six-pack abs fast involves building muscle, add lean protein to your diet. Include proteins such as omega-3 eggs, cottage cheese, lean beef and chicken breast.

  2. Do long-arm crunches

    Lie on your back on a mat on the floor. Bend your legs so your feet are flat, and extend your arms straight above your head. Clasp your hands. Engage your core muscles to pull your head and shoulders off the floor. Keep your biceps by your ears. Hold for a second, then slowly lower back to the floor.

  3. Perform reverse crunches

    Remain on your back on the floor, but straighten your legs. Place your hands behind your head. Slowly lift your knees toward your chest until they are at a 90-degree angle. Engage your core, and curl your hips off the floor. Point your legs up toward the ceiling, hold, and slowly lower back to the floor.

  4. Do the pike

    Still lying on the floor, place your arms at your sides with your palms down. Engage your core, and use it to draw your arms and legs off the floor simultaneously. Stop when your body is at a 45-degree angle, creating a V shape. Reach your arms up your legs, hold for a second, and slowly release.

  5. Finish with a cardio workout

    After your abdominal workout, finish with a high intensity cardio session to burn fat. Row, cycle or run for at least 10 minutes.
