Six pack abs are a physical feature just about everyone wants but are incredibly difficult to get. We spend countless hours and dollars each year trying to create six pack abs. We see our favorite TV and movie stars with them and get jealous because they have all the time and money in the world to spend on creating those beautiful abs and we don't.
So what is the secret to creating six pack abs anyway? Lucky for us, there isn't really any secret movement or exercise to creating six pack abs. Instead, it is a combination of diet and exercise, but what diet and what exercises? There are several excercises you can use to achieve results, but the best options are as follows:
If you want to have six pack abs you need to do the following things:
Exercise those abs and lose the body fat.
What exercises are the best? Abdominal of course, but more importantly:
2. Sit ups
3. Leg lifts
4. Jack Knife Sit ups
5. Static Holds and Side statics
6. Push Ups
7. Pull Ups
These exercises will strengthen your abdominal muscles so that they will appear once you start losing the body fat. There is nothing more awesome than seeing your ribbed stomach muscles for the first time. It is best to start out with 10-12 reps of each exercise with 3-4 sets each. As your muscles get stronger you can increase the number of reps.
Now how to lose the body fat:
1. Lift weights
2. Perform cardio (running, jumprope, riding etc)
3. Watch what you eat
Lifting weights will increase your muscle mass which does several things. It causes you to burn more calories from the food you eat. This helps to lower your fat reserves. Cardio work helps your heart as well as your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the more calories you burn both during activity and at rest. This is key. Lastly, you need to cut down on portion sizes at meal time, eat smaller meals but more frequently, and increase your lean meats, vegetables and fruits in your diet. Try to stay away from all sugars as much as possible. Drink plenty of water as well! Increase your fiber intake and eat breakfast.
