Over the years I have seen many weak ideas on how to get a number out six "slices" of abdomen. The most common scams are special machines that will sometimes do a drink. I remember at one point Slim Fast seemed to show obese people suddenly popping up a row of six "slices" of abdomen.
Anyway, I wanted to put this idea to rest that there is some magic to getting a six pack. Sure there are some genetics involved in sculpting perfect abs but the two most important factors are nutrition and exercise.
What? Did you think there was a shortcut?
Six Pack Abs Diet
The diet section is pretty simple, you need to put away any extra fat you've probably heard of before, but there is no such thing as reducing points when you lose weight, you will lose weight proportionally, generally as you lose weight.
What you may find is that you have a big stomach and if that happens naturally you will lose that fat faster than you lose the fat on your feet but that is precisely because it is where fat deposits will be easier for your body to use. .
As you probably know from reading other places of my own I subscribe to the idea that people eat too much carb in general, but I still do not support the Atkins diet in general but more of a Paleo diet without bread, rice or even potatoes, all carbohydrates must come from fruits and vegetables.
I think you need to increase your protein to at least 20% of your diet, keep fats at about 20% of your calories and then have carbohydrates as the other 60% of your calories. If you are still having trouble losing weight and fat you may be a little carbohydrate sensitive and can increase the protein a little.
Six Abs Pack exercises
As for exercise, to get a set of six ABS packages you need to do two things; Take in one hour of cardio a day to boost your metabolism and really start reducing fat, and then make sure you do your abdominal exercises at the beginning of your workouts.
For Cardio Exercise it doesn't really matter what kind of cardio exercise you get but it is always best to differentiate your exercise so as not to promote any muscle group. I never see people talk about cardio training, but I have found in the past with my cycling that when I do a lot of riding my legs hurt but my body is recovering well.
So you might try to alternate some form of cycling, swimming, hiking, jogging, rushing and even using a rowing machine if you have a chance. Do cardio almost every day, five or six days a week is good, seven days a week it puts a little pressure on my eyes.
Abdominal exercises follow. There are three points to target your abdominal cavities, the lateral cavities that are on your sides, your upper abdomen and your lower abdomen. Doing abdominal exercises is something that some people think you should do every day, but I really think you do well if you do it every other day or three days a week.
Six Abs packages – side exercises
You can overturn your shoulders. Just sit on a bench with your body straight up and down and put some kind of light rod or broom on your shoulders, and then twist from side to side as you go for two sets of 100 repetitions.
The key is to not use too much at all, as gaining muscle in your back will broaden your midsection, which is not something most people want to do.
Six Pack Abs – Ab Exercises Ab
To work your upper abdomen, you want to do some posting or crunching.
I am more a fan of the critical as it is easier on your neck and the machine behind. Lie on your back with your feet on the chair so that your feet are at a 90-degree angle with your body, and then lift your shoulders a few inches from the ground and then lower them again.
This should give stress to your abdomen and you should feel it quite strongly after only a few repetitions. make sure you do this exercise slowly for at least three sets of 30 repetitions.
Six Pack Abs – Lower Ab Exercises
To work your lower abdomen, you need to do something that lifts your legs in the air, as opposed to lifting your upper body in the air.
My favorite exercise for this is a kind of reverse judgment for which I don't have a name. I walk flat on my back and hold something behind my head to keep my upper body firm and then bring my knees up to my chest and back to the ground again.
If you get really strong this way you can just try lifting your legs straight out and up, but unfortunately I'm not that strong.
The muscles of the transverse abdomen are a set of muscles that lie beneath your core and wrap its way around your body. This muscle is most affected I find by making boards and side boards.
Working with Transverse Abdominis is a finished exercise as you finish making these boards and side boards that you will have nothing left to work on. Your entire kernel will be spent
