I Did the “Baby Monkey Ab Workout” for 30 Days (HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED!)May 15, 2022
There are ab workouts and then there are ridiculous workout for abs. In this video, Jesse shows what happened when he followed the “Baby Monkey Ab Workout” for 30 days. This is a follow up to his previous Baby Shark Ab Workout experiment. Except this time, he’s claiming even better results after 30 days of doing this bodyweight ab routine. Let’s just say, Jesse does hadve an even better looking set of 8 pack abs than before.
The Baby Shark Ab Workout is something that was created for kids as a way to get them exercising. Jesse wanted to give it another shot and see if he could inspire action once again with a home ab workout that requires no equipment at all. Once again, the key to the difficulty of this one is the serious time under tension and a sequence of floor based v-sit ab exercises, it takes the user through It’s actually a series of 8 ab movements without rest.
See if you can keep up with the exercises before your ears burn out from listening to the song.
– Recline Vine Climbers
– Alternating Leg Peels
– Vine Climb Sit-Ups
– Banana Peel Twists
– Plank Vine Swings
– No More Bananas

– Monkey See You Laters
Don’t let the foolishness of this ab workout fool you. Now, this certainly isn’t a song that I would recommend you work out to, but I can tell you this. Music has a way of distracting you from the burn that you might otherwise focus on too much when doing ab workouts. If you can find something to listen to that will distract you in a good way from the difficulty of what you’re doing then you may find that it is easier to get through your ab routine.
The other benefits to this type of training are that the ab exercises are being performed for time rather than reps. For instance, ab routines that prescribe reps of a certain exercise may be challenging for some and not even the slightest bit difficult for someone else. When you use time to failure as a metric of work you will find that it is much easier to equalize the workload despite the difference of ability.
Here, you could perform the same exercise for multiple characters in the song rather than limit it to just one if you were more advanced.
The next key is that the abs remain under constant tension from the first rep to the last. And if you want to make this even more challenging, there’s nothing stopping you from hitting the repeat button and going for a second, third or even fourth round. Just make sure that you’re matching the challenge to your ability level in order to get that 8 pack progress underway.
Now, is this the ultimate ab workout for training like an athlete. Not at all. I’d much rather see you get on your feet and perform more rotational ab exercises if possible, but as far as something that may get more people trying it simply because of the novelty of the idea I think it could be a good thing. After all, the more times people will engage in fitness that otherwise wouldn’t we are doing something right.
