How To Get Six Pack Abs With These 3 Easy Rules

Feb 28, 2008
Frustration is usually the first thing that springs to mind when it comes to abs training for a great six pack. Frustration due to the sheer amount of hard work, time and effort it takes just to remove the stubborn fat, let alone seeing a nice defined set of six pack abs.

To make things worse, we constantly get bombarded with the latest diet fads, the new crunch machine or the "do it in one weekend" scam that simply throw us further off track than we were before.

However, we've come a long way since the days of endless crunches that do more harm than good. But if you've spent the past few months or even years wasting your time and energy with crunches, sit ups and being the guinea pig for all those here today gone tomorrow abs machines and fad diets, then it's time to evaluate what's going wrong.

Sure, it takes hard work, but there is a fundamental difference between working hard and working smart. You're a smart person, so you needn't work so damn hard right?

There are 3 things you should always remember during your overall approach to a six pack with less effort...

1. Keep metabolism steady

The trick behind a great six pack is simply to lose weight first. A great way to do this is by controlling your metabolism. Don't just eat for the sake of eating. Eat when you feel genuinely hungry (but not desperately hungry). Make sure you keep some healthy snacks such as nuts or fruit at work so that you can continually feed yourself. It is recommended to eat around every three hours, but don't take this strictly as it differs from each individual.

2. Eat more fibre

Fibre has lots of benefits on your overall health, reducing cholesterol and keeping your heart healthy. Not only that, but if you want to reduce your natural food intake, fibre is the secret. This is because fibre makes us feel "full", and for longer. This means you will consume less food and still be fulfilled. Try things like brown rice, wholegrain bread and cereal, beans and lentils. However, don't go overboard...too much fibre can cause gas in the stomach and even constipation. The trick lies with point 3, which is to...

3. Drink more water

Water helps us flush the system from roughage and comes with numerous essential benefits. You should try to drink eight glasses per day when possible. Sometimes, drinking water can stave off apparent hunger pangs, which actually is your body's signal of thirst not hunger (which is a common natural deception we suffer)

These are just three things you can start doing today for free, but the three things alone are simply not enough to see dramatic and speedy abs.

You will need to have a well balanced, concentrated diet along with a proven abs training program to see the best results in the fastest possible time.
