Oh No!! Ab Workout tips.
The dreaded abs! I can’t stand ab workouts. There I said it!
Most of us think that doing hundreds of crunches is the cure all for a washboard stomach. However it probably has more to do with your diet than your routine to get that six pack. The good news? You have abs already. The bad news? They’re hidden from you.
Here are a few tips to get you heading in the right direction for a washboard stomach on it’s way to a six pack. Stay with me here…
1. Go lean. You have a layer of fat covering those ab muscles. You should and will have to change your diet to not restore what your working off. The whole goal here is to burn off the fat without eating the foods that will replace it.
2. You have 4 main muscle groups, you need to learn the right exercises to target each one of these.
You have muscles going all different ways in your abdomen. You need to workout the same.
- Crunches with a twist
- Leg raises
- Knee ups
Tip: Remember you want to add exercises that twist along with those Situps and Crunches.
3. No Overkill! Your going to get tired of hearing this but it’s not quantity here. It’s quality of food and exercises that target and burn those fat calories. So change your goal of doing those 1000 sit-ups and focus more on what your eating and your exercise routine.
4. “The strongest of all warriors are these two — Time and Patience.” LEO TOLSTOY, War and Peace (He said it better than I could.) You can’t force your body to BE, you have to train it. That takes some time, so have some patience yet persevere.
5. Five things you should NEVER eat. Forget the “all things in moderation” You have a Goal, by all means eliminate the obstacles that can get in your way of achieving those goals.
- Soda – If you haven’t retained water…this will surely help you do it. Nothing good in here. NOTHING. Basically sugar and acid.
- White Breads – This all is converted into sugar. Stay away from the bleached/white flours.
- Fast food – I think this one is kinda Duh. Even those salads. (I don’t care how they are advertised.)
- Junk food - Potato Chips, All Chips potato or not, that little bag of skittles you cheat with, (Disclaimer: no skittles were harmed in the making of this article.)
- Stop Drinking. I of course mean alcohol. Most of Alcoholic drinks have a high calorie or sugar content. Side note: alcohol breaks down muscle fibers. We need those.
6. Good rule of thumb – If you can’t easily understand or know what is in your meal, you should Not be eating it. Now I’m not talking about going Lettuce Green here. Just keep away from the frozen food isle. Those “Lean” meals have more additives than your laundry detergent.
Let me summarize in saying this. You will be amazed at what you will accomplish by changing your diet and getting into a routine. The only reason why you have not accomplished this Yet is because you haven’t started. Make the changes and do it. Hold yourself accountable, workout with a friend, husband/wife or coworker. Stay consistent – Be Patient – Eat Right.
