Abdominals - The Surefire Way to a Six-Pack
The surefire way to a glorious six-pack
Everyone wants a washboard tummy, and all of us do have a six-pack – whether you want to believe it or not. This is because we use our abdominal muscles throughout the day in order to keep our bodies balanced and stable, which means you’re exercising your abs when you walk, stand for long periods of time, and even when you sit. So your six-pack is there – it just might be buried under a layer of fat! That means you can do 100 abdominal crunches a day and it won’t make a difference.
But don’t despair; there is one “exercise” you can do to uncover your six-pack – eating a healthy diet. You see, first you have to reduce your body fat, which is that layer covering your abs. Compliment your healthy diet with regular bouts of your favorite cardio exercises and weight training, and your abdominals will be the envy of everyone at the beach this summer!
But remember, your abs shouldn’t be treated any differently than your other muscles. So stick with three ab workouts a week, and concentrate on 10 to 30 reps of each exercise at most. If you’re doing more, chances are you’re either doing the exercise improperly, or not challenging your abs enough. You can challenge them more by using a stability ball for crunches, ankle weights for hanging leg raises, decline benches or medicine balls for additional resistance. Remember, your abdominal muscles need time to recover and repair – just like every other muscle in your body.
