Killer Washboard Ab Workout & Sweet Broccoli Smoothie (YUMMM!!)

My Double Feature continues with 2 killer routines from Mike Chang (Six Pack Shortcuts).  We start with a functional cardio workout, and then really focus on blasting the abs in the second.  It’s the prefect combo since killer abs are pointless if covered with killer flab.

Mmm, Broccoli!!!!  No one’s ever said that, but that’s about to change :).  I found this great recipe on Tasty-Yummies.com for a Banana Broccoli Smoothie, and then I tweaked it my liking with some almonds and pitted dates for extra sweetness.  Check it out.
