For those of you who don’t yet know who Brian Dietzen is, I have one question:
Do you not watch NCIS!?
Dietzen stars as Jimmy Palmer who is a Doctor and also the Chief Medical Examiner for the NCIS Major Case Response Team.
And for this one we’re specifically going to be talking about Dietzen’s ab workout!
You guys have been asking for more ab workouts, which is why we originally put together our Top Ten Celebrity Ab Workouts article – but now we’re back for more.
For that article I went through our Workout Database and Celebrity Workouts Database and pulled from full celebrity workouts that had included awesome ab routines and I pieced it together accordingly (with one or two exceptions being more similar to this article).
For this one we just have Dietzen’s ab workout to focus in on!
He jumped into an interview with CBS Watch Magazine to give them the full scoop.
Here’s what they shared:
This scientist has a secret. Underneath that ordinary lab coat, assistant medical examiner Jimmy Palmer—played by Brian Dietzen—has some seriously amazing abs!
In the article Dietzen also shares some more insights that I think are more relevant if we lead with, prior to getting into the ab workout itself.
One tip Dietzen shares about his training is:
“I wear my Microsoft Band 2 activity tracker whenever I work out (and pretty much all the time). It’s a good way to keep track of my heart rate, calories and time spent on each exercise.”
From there he also shares some information on how his training has adapted over time:
“I used to do all sorts of exotic pull ups–Vs and funky dips–and while it looks cool, it really messes with your rotator cuff, so I keep my hand close together on pull-ups and chin-ups to avoid injury.”
But, alright, let’s get into the full workout.
I’m going to break it down piece by piece (exercise by exercise) for us below.
