Do you still remember how BTS Jungkook abs took over ARMY’s attention on ‘Fake Love’? It is impressive that Jungkook still maintains his abs perfect shape until now.
According to Wikipedia, abdominal muscles, or better known as abs, are paired muscles running vertically on each side of the anterior wall of the human abdomen. It is quite hard to get as well as maintain the good shape of this part of body. Not only we need regular exercise to get it perfect, but we also need to manage our diet and lifestyle. Though, BTS King of Abs, Jungkook makes it look very easy. Let’s see how he shapes and maintains his “well-defined Jungkook abs”.
Regular exercise and athletic hobbies
According to a post on Twitter a while ago, Jungkook had written a list of exercises he regularly does.
The list is translated as 20 squats, 20 push-ups, 20 jump-squats, 20 shoulder exercises, 10 plank shoulder blades, 20 mountain climber, 15 burpee, 20 crunches, 20 leg raise, and 20 superman exercises.
Besides, ARMYs know that Jungkook has many athletic hobbies, including boxing and weight training. He recorded and uploaded one session of his weight training. What do you think of his strength?

BTS Jungkook abs are like Jungkook love for ARMYs
During a BBQ party with Nippon TV, BTS played a keyword game where they had to send a love message to ARMYs using the word given to them. On this occasion, the word for Jungkook was “abs”.
In a cheesy way, Jungkook mentioned that his abs as the center of his love for ARMYs. It made other members burst out laughing and said that Jungkook can’t lose his abs, or else he will lose his love for ARMYs too. In response to that, Jungkook promised that his abs are there to stay, like his love for ARMYs will remain forever.
How you can get BTS Jungkook abs
Do more cardio
Cardio is an exercise that increases your heart rate. By doing cardio routinely, you can burn extra fat. Cardio is also effective in reducing belly fat, which will speed your way to set your BTS Jungkook abs. Try to do 20-40 minutes of moderate cardio exercise per day.
Exercise abdominal muscles
When you want to get BTS Jungkook abs, you must do exercise on your abs. It is the key to increase muscle mass and achieve your own well-defined abs. Crunches, bridges, and planks are some most popular abs exercises to strengthen and shape your abs.
Try High-Intensity Interval Training
HIIT, or High-Intensity Interval Training, keeps your heart rate up and increases fat burning. It is a form of exercise that includes alternating between intense bursts of activity and short recovery period. You can try to switch between walking and sprinting for 20-30 seconds at a time for your cardio exercise at home. You can also alternate between high-intensity exercises like jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and burpees with a short break in between.
Increase protein intake
Pair your regular exercise with a healthy diet. Protein can help you reduce calorie intake. Moreover, by increasing your intake of high-protein foods will promote weight loss, reduce belly fat, and support muscle growth. Consuming protein after working out also helps repair and rebuild muscle tissues as well as aid in muscle recovery. Some examples of healthy, high-protein foods are meat, poultry, eggs, seafood, dairy products, legumes, nuts, and seeds.
Cut back on refined carbs and fill up on fiber
Refined carbs can lead to high blood sugar levels, which then makes you craving for more foods. It will mess up your plan to have BTS Jungkook abs. Instead of eating refined carbs, you better take high-fiber foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and seeds. Moreover, high-fiber foods make you feel full longer than refined carbs.
Stop Eating Processed Food
As we all know, processed food is high in calories, carbs, fat, and sodium. However, they are low in fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals, which are essential to our body and muscles. Stop taking frozen meals, baked goods, and salty snacks. Instead, why don’t you choose fruits, vegetables, legumes, and other all nutritious foods?
Research shows that drinking 500 ml of water can increase energy expenditure by 24% temporarily. It also can reduce your appetite and help weight loss. Besides, staying well-hydrated will help to improve your metabolism and make it easier to get your BTS Jungkook abs.
