Circuit Workouts for Big Shoulders and a Ripped Six-Pack

This four-round circuit will build muscle and strength in the shoulders and abs.

Following a workout routine day-in and day-out can get tedious and boring. Sometimes it's a good idea to just break the routine and go with a quick and easy workout to focus on specific areas you want to build up. What better place to start than shoulders and abs? Building your shoulders gives you a broader look, and a ripped six-pack is what every man wants. We've asked training contributor to HUMANFITPROJECT, fitness model and entrepreneur Abe Cruz for his go-to workout.
