Want flat, fabulous abs? Who doesn't! While there’s no instant fix, a good abdominal workout goes a long way. If you’re in to fitness training apps like 5K Runner and Hundred PushUps, then Situps 0 to 200: Ab Workouts might just work for you.
0 to 200: Ab Workouts is part of a family of fitness-focused offerings from Clear Sky Apps. As the name suggests, it helps users build up to 200 sit-ups (ab crunches) by gaining strength and providing a quick, easy-to-follow sit-up routine that gradually increases the number of sit-ups done in each workout. Use 0 to 200: Ab Workouts three times a week for just 20 minutes and go from 0 to 200 in just 10 weeks.
Used as a training tool, Situps 0 to 200: Ab Workouts is simple to use and makes keeping track of your workout progress easy. Start with week one and pick a day to start – then workout every other day starting with just three repetitions of 5 sit-ups. The app automatically increases the number of sit-ups and sets as you go. But don’t worry, Situps 0 to 200: Ab Workouts lets you work at your own pace if you choose by repeating lesser sets if necessary. But most importantly, it lays out a simple and completely achievable goal – even for those who spend limited amounts of time working out.
Though the name Situps 0 to 200: Ab Workouts might imply it offers a collection of different abdominal exercises, it isn’t about variety, it’s about repetition and results – and a bit of motivation. To be successful, any workout routine has to be simple to follow and totally achievable. 0 to 200: Ab Workouts serves as both. It’s not overly complex and is simple to use. The app is interactive, meaning you’ll have to have it on to tap the “did it” button between sets, but voice guidance is supplied to resume after each 30 second rest.
As you complete each increasing number of crunches and reps, Situps 0 to 200: Ab Workouts tracks your progress for you. If you have workout buddies in your social network groups, it gives you the option to share your progress via Facebook, Twitter and email. You can also use it with multitasking to play music from your favorite workout playlist and you’ll still hear the voice guided prompts. It’s pretty much as simple as that.
For a simple to use and simple to follow sit-up routine, Situps 0 to 200: Ab Workouts fits the bill nicely. It includes access to instructional videos and help as well as lets you stay connected to workout buddies through social networking, email and online forums. There’s also a free, limited version available to try before you buy.
