It's easy to want six pack abs, but it's more difficult to actually get them. It's always been more enjoyable to consume calories than to lose them, but for many of us, it now takes less effort to find and consume food than to find space to conduct a decent workout. But with a tool like Runtastic's Six Pack Abs Workouts, you can exercise wherever you have enough space to lay out a yoga mat.

This app scales well to both smartphone and tablet screens, allowing you to choose between portability and easy viewing. There are over 50 1080p instructional workout videos to guide you along. Some of these will probably prove too challenging to start off with, so you can adjust the difficulty level to something more your speed. A 10-week six pack plan is included for anyone patient enough to see this through, and there's a 7-minute workout for people who just don't have the time to do more.

The workouts are designed to get your blood pumping without the need for exercise equipment, and they ideally improve overall fitness, muscle strength, balance, and help you manage your weight. Since aerobic exercises aren't included, apartment dwellers should be able to follow along without disturbing the neighbors living downstairs.

Included exercises:

  • Classic sit-ups
  • Cross-body crunch
  • Oblique crunch
  • Planks
  • Mountain climbers
  • Hip drops
  • Leg raises
  • Core twist
  • Side bridge
  • Numerous sit up variations & many more!

To get everything mentioned above, you will need to pay $4.99 for the full version. The free version only comes with a few workouts and is ad-supported. Still, it's a great way to get your feet wet and decide if you have what it takes to get those rock hard abs.

      I have a 12-pack... 6 on the front, 6 on the back.

  • sixpackshortcuts

    is there an app that i can just open and have six pack abs?!

    • Android Developer

      probably so, but you'd need to root your phone and backup the previous abs in case something goes wrong. :)


    Such a good review of the application, however i wish you guys told us that this application requires permissions IT DOES NOT need to run such an app including READ_PHONE_LOGS and retrieve running apps. STAY AWAY.

    Why can't I install this on my N7? If it has great tablet scale ability I want to use it on my tablet.

    Abs are made in the kitchen... not the gym... or by doing 1000 sit-ups a day!

    You want abs, eat right, or you will be busting your ass for a lot of nothing.

    This app is just as bad as those TV commercials advertising the Ab Circle Pro and other related products.

    While we are at it,Does anyone know a diet app that is actually for weight gain not loss? Every single one i found was for weight loss :(

    • Unknown182

      This. I have crohns which makes it very hard to gain weight. I have the body of a supermodel, if I were a girl.

    Building up abs is the easy part... losing the fat covering up the abs is the hard part. Ab exercises alone won't cut it, you need more cardio exercise and of course proper diet.

    Everyone has a 6 pack already. They are hidden by a layer of fat. Sit-ups don't get rid of that fat. You have to do compound exercises, like burpees and cut calories. BAM! I saved you $5
