How to Get Six Pack Abs Fast

Aug 20, 2008
Believe it or not, you can get six pack abs fast, without any expensive equipment, gym memberships, or gimmicky devices. In fact, all you really need to get a six pack is a little dedication and some open floor space (preferably carpeted).

There are certainly a wide variety of products on the market promising to give you lean, defined abs if only you'll plunk down the fifty or one hundred bucks for their product. It might even seem plausible that these products could be effective - after all, the models using them always look great. Some of these products are even effective, at least partially so. But none of them have been proven to work better than the basic ab exercises most of us know so well.

In fact, a recent study by the American Council on Exercise showed that the three most effective abs exercises (gimmicky machines included) are: the bicycle maneuver, the captain's chair, and the exercise ball crunch. You can do any of these exercises with very basic gym equipment (such as an exercise ball).

The best news from the study was that the first two exercises -- the bicycle maneuver and the captain's chair -- target both sets of abdominal muscles, the rectus abdominus and the obliques. Therefore, a routine incorporating these three top abs exercises is all you would need to develop your entire abdominal area. Therefore, you don't need to go to great lengths to target your separate abdominal muscle groups. These three top abs exercises will tone and define everything from your six pack to your love handles.

Of course, you can do all the abs exercises you want and still not get a six pack if you don't also burn off the layer of fat covering your abdomen. One great way to burn fat is to reduce your carb intake, replacing the carbs with protein and fat. Another way is to build up muscle mass by starting a weightlifting routine.

There are many great fat burning diet plans and muscle building routines to try. So start doing your homework today and choose the diet and workout routine that suite you best, and start doing those ab exercises every three days. A combination of fat burning and stomach muscle developing is utterly doable with just a little determination.

So skip those gimmicky contraptions and jump right into a fat burning, ab building routine, and you'll get six pack abs in less time than you think.
