5 Daily Habits To Achieve Six-Pack Abs

Sep 9, 2008
Stripping away fatty acids from your tummy for good can be quite challenging. It entails hard work, consistency and determination to attain six-pack abs.

Start with cardio exercises to burn fat before you do resistance training that targets to develop six-pack abs muscles at the earlier possible time.

With proper mindset that you can, you really make your way towards perfecting your abs. Consider these steps so that effectiveness is within your reach:

1.Rehydrate yourself upon waking up. After a good night's rest, you must immediately address your thirst. For sure, you feel parched after hours of no water. As the sun rises, celebrate by drinking a glass of water or two.

Experts tell that drinking upon rising in the morning increases the metabolism rate by 24% for the succeeding 1 hour and a half. Your muscles will also grow more effectively if you hydrate them with adequate amount of water. A gallon per day would be most fitting.

2.Do not skip eating breakfast every day. As it is the most important meal of the day, breakfast must not be missed out. Most people think it's more fitting to feed yourself big during lunch, which is untrue. The moment you start the day, you must have ample energy. That is achievable by eating breakfast.

Survey says that those who skip breakfast have greater chances of developing a fat tummy than those who eat regularly. Within two hours of waking, you must consume at least 250-calorie meal. You can have cereals, shake, berries or a scoop of whey protein to make a healthy breakfast.

3.Recall your goals as you feed yourself. It's important to monitor what you eat. Is it going to jeopardize your goal of gaining six-pack abs? If the food served is too high in calories, then don't indulge in it.

It will only start to ruin your fitness goals. Make sure you maintain discipline in eating. Eat healthily at times, or you end up defeating the purpose of your fitness program.

4.Pack your lunch. Other than you are able to save a few bucks, preparing your lunch ahead and having it packed will put you on the right track. You can get the healthiest choice of food based on the diet plan given by your fitness guru.

5. Exercise the appropriate way. Doing the crunches immediately without taking out fats first is not right. Spend minutes of cardio to break down fats before executing endless crunches.

Do not do crunches every day. Instead, you can alternate it with free weights training to target your biceps and triceps.

Make these daily habits a part of your lifestyle. Once you are attuned to doing them, it won't be hard anymore. Your body will keep craving for a healthy diet, which means you will have easier and quicker way towards getting six-pack abs.
