5 Things You Must Know to Get Six Pack Abs

Do you want a sculpted six pack? Have you been trying to flatten your abs for a while now and are not seeing results? Then you might be believing one of the 5 misconceptions about achieving six pack abs. Read on to find out what they are and how to avoid them.

1. A lot of health foods are not actually that good for you. Many of these "health foods" are just disguised junk food that is far over priced. You don't need to buy special snack bars or $10 microwavable dinners to eat healthy. These scams actually stimulate you to gain more belly fat.

2. Doing dozens of crunches and sit-ups each day will not build your six pack. Crunches and sit-ups are actually the least effective ab exercises that you can do. Instead, try the bicycle and leg raises. Remember, it is not how many that you do, it is how you do them (form, length, etc).

3. Repetitive cardio exercises is not necessarily the best way to lose fat and uncover your abs. Sure, spending 30 minutes on the treadmill 4 - 5 times a week will burn fat, and there is nothing wrong with doing it this way, but there are quicker techniques. Look into exercise videos (make sure they're quality - read reviews) and activities like boxing cardio and step.

4. Fat burning / weight loss "magic" pills are a waste of money. These never work, so don't spend your money on them. You don't need supplements to flatten your abs, you just need to eat a healthy, natural diet.

5. Most of the specialized ab machines, like ab belts, ab rockers, and ab loungers, are just gimmicks and are not effective. The models that you see using these machines don't get their perfect six pack from them, they are just getting paid to sell the product. They get their muscles from real workouts and real nutrition.

Now that the 5 most common misconceptions about getting flat abs have been cleared up, I hope that you can plan your workout and diet more effectively for achieving your goals.
