This abdominal workout routine for men will give the body women are looking for. Perform each exercise 4 sets for 20 reps with 20 seconds rest. 1. Crunches

Raise your head and shoulders toward your knees with a situp motion and simultaneously lift the pelvis. Feel the lower and upper abs contract together. Flex the abs hard at the top of the movement to get maximum contraction. Avoid pulling on your head with your hands. It may help to exhale just before crunching upwards.
