There’s a bit more work to get your abs than just traditional abdominal drills that don’t really help that much anyway. What you are going to need to do is eat healthy foods so that you have the power of nutrition behind you as you work. This is a round the clock and round the calendar effort to keep fat from ruining your body. I’m going to list for you a few of the lies that are around about abs and I’m going to try to help you understand the truth.
Lie Number One: exercising will get the job done. This is so false. Never ever believe that working out means more than eating right. Your nutrition is the engine behind your efforts to get a lean body. As long as you’re loafing in the area of eating, you’re never going to get that belly flab off your body.
Plan your nutritional content in advance and make sure you get healthy ingredients that haven’t been ruined through artificial processing. You will need to get plenty in the way of proteins, veggies, high-fiber fruit, and no-cal beverages like water or teas. Don’t be eating anything with sugar
Lie Number Two: Work with crunching movements to target the fat on your abdominals.
Crunches aren’t going to be very effective to start with, especially if you don’t address your nutrition and do other workouts that will get your metabolic rate up so you’ll burn more calories even while resting. I know that many athletes that I have been training have the six-pak people dream of. I also know that they didn’t get that way by doing crunches.
How you get a 6 pak is by working the whole body and doing high intensity bursts while exercising to burn fat and build muscle.
