Who Else Wants the Secret to Great Abs?
It never fails. As spring approaches people start thinking about
getting in shape for summer. And every year the number one thing I'm
asked is "How can I get great abs?"
You've probably pondered that
question at some time or another and you're likely frustrated with your
waistline. Maybe you've given up on your abs after doing dozens of
crunches only to see zero results. I don't blame you.
Forget everything you've heard about how to sculpt your abs. Crunches
simply won't give you a six pack.
You see, to do crunches with the hope that it will turn your midsection
into a washboard is to operate under one of the most widely held
fitness myths. I'm talking about SPOT REDUCING. Simply put, training
one area of your body will not specifically burn fat from that area.
You've probably heard that spot reducing is a myth, but most people
still train as if it is true. Doing crunches will not magically make
your waist shrink, it will not cause your muffin top to disappear, and
it will not give you washboard abs.
Only a drop in total body fat will do that for you.
So what is the secret to great abs? Instead of endless crunches, the
secret is a winning combination of fat burning cardio, resistance
training, and proper eating.
It is absolutely possible for you to dramatically shape up your
waistline before summer hits this year. Yes, Y-O-U. Weight loss is not
reserved only for the people you've seen on the Biggest Loser or on
diet pill infomercials. You can do it too.
Answer the following two questions to see how your routine measures up:
How often do you exercise? If your answer was anything less than 4
times a week, then that's the first thing getting between you and
streamline abs. How do you define a fat burning workout? A routine
including intense cardiovascular training coupled with effective
resistance training. Do you do this?
I'm sorry to be the one to break this to you, but walking on the
treadmill for 30 minutes isn't a fat blasting routine. Neither is a
leisurely 20 minutes on the elliptical machine. The truth is that you
can dramatically increase your results while investing less time when
you exercise right.
Cardio exercise is all about maintaining an effective level of
intensity. This doesn't mean that you should be out of breath or
gasping for air. It does mean that you need to push yourself.
Resistance training is the second key part of a fat burning workout.
This means working your major muscle groups against resistance in a way
that stimulates your metabolism. Again the key here is to find the
right intensity and to keep each muscle group guessing.
What kind of shape is your diet in? Diet is a big stumbling block for
most people-especially as it relates to their midsection. Here's a
fact: If your diet is out of control then your abs will be too. You
can't trim your waist without trimming the junk out of your diet,
regardless of how hard you exercise.
