Hip Hop Abs

Dance floor moves for perfect abs.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

It's easy to get bored with a workout routine, especially when consistent effort is not producing the results you want. Hip Hop Abs is a workout video series lead by choreographer Shaun T that is committed to getting you back in the mood to workout, without the tedium and monotony of other programs. Hip Hop Abs is a new way to get the abs you've always wanted, while promoting cardiovascular health, and having a lot of fun while you're doing it. Shaun T is a choreographer who has brought his dance experience to you.

Hip Hop Abs is an exciting and fun way to get in shape- while dancing to some of your favorite music. There are four DVDs in the series- Secrets to Flat Abs, Fat Burning Cardio, Ab Sculpt and Total Body Burn. Each video is less than 45 minutes, and will have you moving and grooving your way to perfect abs in no time. More than 2 million copies have been sold.

PRO
  • Abdominal-focused workout

  • Popular music you'll enjoy dancing to

  • Premium cardio and fat-burning exercises

  • 30-day money-back guarantee

  • Promotes inclusion of a healthy diet

CON
  • May not suit everyone's taste
DIET and NUTRITION

Hip Hop Abs does promote healthful eating as part of the exercise program. It does not describe any foods, recipes or menus to follow.

EXERCISE

Hip Hop Abs is all exercise! This program will get your heart racing and focus on toning the abdominal muscles. Hip Hop Abs guarantees you'll get the flat, sexy stomach you've always wanted if you follow the program's instructions. As an added bonus, you'll either learn to dance or better your skills.

Hip Hop Abs is fun and engaging- so you're less likely to get bored or burnt out. You'll achieve all of the benefits of traditional core training- without the tiresome crunches, sit-ups and treadmills. Hip Hop Abs also comes with a nutrition guide to help you focus on healthful eating, a workout calendar to help you develop a schedule and online support.

CONCLUSION

If you're going for six-pack abs or just a flat, toned tummy, Hip Hop Abs is likely the tool you need. Not only do the targed "Tilt, Tuck & Tighten" exercises sculpt your abdominal muscles without crunches or sit-ups, it's tied in with energetic and fun dance club routines. The price is reasonable, especially when compared to gym, trainer and home machine prices. If you enjoy the social aspect of a gym or exercise class, the Hip Hop Abs DVDs allow you to invite the girls over to tone-up together.

It works wonders only the playback quality of theDVD was not good - kept on kicking and stopping midaway but overall the workouts are fun, very effective and the 6 day diet you really lose the inches off. I do the diet every now and again to burn some fats

I just ordered the videos, but know for sure there was no ^ day plan with it< so I googled it.

Hip Hop Abs 6-Day SlimDown Meal Plan schedule

Hip Hop Abs 6-Day Schedule

In six days you are suppose to lose pounds and inches, and jump start your fitness weight loss plan. You can start it any day of the week.

This diet is a high protein/low carb, aimed at getting your metabolism revved up. They do not recommend a diet this high in protein for a long-term heath. For six days, however, this plan will force your body to use stored body fat for fuel at the same time it ramps up your metabolism. Only do this diet for 6 days.

Some of you will probably substitute some of the food items, which is fine. For example, I don??t have Beachbody??s Whey Protein Powder, but I do have another brand that I??m planning to use. You could also use Slim Fast Low Carb or High Protein Shakes. Just remember to plan out your meals for the six days and buy everything that you need before you begin.


Drink at least eight glasses of water a day-carbonated water is okay.

Herbal tea is recommended.

Coffee is okay with breakfast but skip the milk, creamer and sugar.

Only drink water for the 6 days.

Make sure that you eat your dinner 3 hours before going to bed.

I do my hip hop abs exercise 5-6 times a week. I have always loved sport and dancing. We had our first anniversary couple of weeks ago (my clothes felt tight and I didnt feel beautiful in them) which was bothering me so once we got back home I decided to hop on a scale and start exercising again.
Oukki doukki....12 days later 10 pounds gone!!!! Although I have been eating healthier but oh boy does it feel easy to drop off the sausages I have on my tummy area. I have 12 more pounds to go but I am gonna do it!!!! Good luck everybody and have fun dancing. LOOKING GOOD!:D

I just started my 6 day slimdown today and I have not snacked on anything I am not supposed to. I have high hopes that this will work. I only have about 15 pounds total to lose so I am hoping that I can lose at least 6 pounds on this. I do have a question though. Those of you who have completed the 6 day slimdown.... is it ok to have at least one diet soda a day?? I love soda, there are no calories no carbs, etc in it.....????

6 day slim down in 6 days, 8 pounds later I am happy. Getting ready for my vacation in 7 days and will keep it going. I hope I can do this for 6 more days and lose more. Just 3 years ago I was 40lbs lighter, but I stopped regularly exercising and gained my weight "back", yes I lost it before. This is my jumpstart and I will continue. :-)

After reading some of the positive reviews of hip hop abs on here I am just waiting for the DVD's to come for me to start, hope to loose 50lb

I have been doing HHA for about 2 months now I have lost about 20 lbs just by doing it at my own paste without following the schedule. I do it at least 4 days a week sometimes I do one video which is the total body burn and other days when I don't do total body burn I do 2-3 videos. I love it and I never get tired of it. It feels like Shaun T is in the same room with you and he motivates you so well. I borrowed Brazil butt lift from one of my friends. I thought I might change it up a little but I hated it. The trainer on that video was nothing like Shaun T. So from now on any workout dvd's I get are going to be only Shaun T.

I am on my third week of hip hop abs and I have already lost a great deal of weight. My obliques are almost perfect and my stomach is getting flat. I strongly suggest this workout plan to any and everyone serious about losing weight. As long as you follow the plan and stick to it you will have great results. On top of that its super fun!!!! Thank you Shaun T!

I started Hip Hop Abs weighing 190 lbs at 5'3". I found it very challenging, but I could keep up with it- barely. After sticking with it for a month, I'd lost 10 lbs and found it MUCH easier to do. Now I'm 20 lbs lighter, and I still find it to be a great workout. Shaun T is very inspirational, and reminds me of Will Smith- unlike some of the other workout videos I've tried where the instructor yells a lot.
