Ok, back to the workout stuff!
The Following video is a demonstration of a great abs exercise that you can do at home!
Here are my TOP 5 tips to help you get a six pack FAST!!!
1. DO NOT TRAIN ABS EVERYDAY!!!
I ALWAYS hear people saying that its ok to train abs everyday, that is pharmaceutical grade bullshit! are just like any other muscle. You wouldn’t train legs every day so why would it make sense to train abs every day? I train my abs 2-3 times per week. If your just starting out, you should do even less. As rule of thumb, after you workout a body part, wait till your 100% not sore before you train that body part again.
2. YOU CAN NOT BURN FAT IN ONLY ONE SPOT!!!
there is no such thing as spot reduction. If you workout your abs and get them strong, they still may not show if you have a layer of fat on them. People think that just doing ab workouts will help them lose there guts, but it does not work like that. You can’t just make it disappear from your waist alone.
When you increase your exercise time and moderately cut back on calories, your body will start to burn some of your stored fat for energy. The result is fat loss… everywhere. When you drop enough fat for your six-pack to show.
3. YOU HAVE TO EAT RIGHT!!!
you cannot out-train a bad diet!!!!! Abs are made in the kitchen and not the gym. Diet is responsible for 90% of your results! In order to burn the fat that is covering up your abs you need a good diet and a solid strength training program backing it up. Here is some FREE info to get your started!
4. DO MORE CARDIO
I strongly recommend your try HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) cardio. It burns WAY more fat in far less time than traditional cardio. A study at Laval University in Quebec, Canada found that HIIT cardio helped trainees loose nine (yes, 9!) times more fat than those who trained the traditional way (moderate speed for 20-60 minutes). Combine HIIT with your weight program and you boost your metabolism through the roof!
I have a lot of info about HIIT in MY PROGRAM. Here is a video of me doing a version of HIIT (this video has over 1,200,000 MILLION views!)
5. DRINK MORE WATER!!!
Since our bodies are over 70% water, drinking water is essential for optimal health. Water helps prime the body for fat loss, as well as flush out harmful toxins. Not drinking enough can lead to a water imbalance in the body, which can increase your risk of disease. Water is the ONLY thing I ever Drink (and alcohol a few nights a week).
