Do your Google Keyword search again for those phrases and make sure that you have 'Exact' ticked and 'Broad' unticked. This will show you how many people are searching for that exact term per month.
Here are the global results that I got:
fastest way to get abs 880
best workout for abs 1600
how to work out your abs 210
These search volumes are much different than what you posted. I'm not sure how you ended up with those numbers.
Also, the tab in the Google Keyword Tool that says competition is not how competitive it will be to rank for the keyword phrase. The competition tab means how competitive it is to advertise with Google Adwords, not how easy these phrases are going to be to rank organically. (I misunderstood this when I started out.)
Traffic Travis can give you a much better idea of how easy or difficult it will be to get ranking higher in the SERPS. In TT you have to weigh out how the competition is targeting these keywords with titles, descriptions and h1 tags and also how many backlinks are pointing to the specific pages that are ranking for the term.
Hope this helps,
