Abdominal Training Made Easy

Sep 14, 2008
There is no question about it, whether it's bodybuilders, non-bodybuilders, supermodels, teachers, or lawyers, every one of them wants to have a lean, cut, well defined six pack of abs. It's become part of our culture and media that having nice abdominal muscles is extremely desirable and important.

Despite the huge number of people who want them, many of them think that training your abs is exactly like training all the other muscle groups. They might get worked out once in a while, and by some random chance they're going to one day pop out on their own and be the most defined muscle of your body. The people who think like this couldn't be more wrong. In order to develop a great looking set of abs you need to have the right combination of training, diet, and cardio. It also helps to avoid the things you do everyday that keep those chiseled abs in hiding. The following are six steps that will help develop a six-pack.

1. Your abs must be trained. A lot of people whine about their embarrassing stomachs, but they probably won't tell you that they can't remember the last time they tried doing a sit up. Muscle groups need to be trained to grow. It's best of the abs are trained 3-5 times a week.

2. Cardio is a must. A set of stellar abs is pretty much useless if you have them covered in a nice thick layer of fat. If cardio isn't part of your routine, begin slowly. Cardio exercises raise your metabolism and will let your midsection start taking shape.

3. Develop a more strict diet. Taking in less calories means your body will burn body fat to keep going. It is also important that you don't go to the other extreme and eat very little, this will make your metabolism go way done and you'll probably put weight on. The best is having 5-7 smaller meals throughout the day with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables.

4. Green tea and water. These are most likely the two healthiest drinks you can have. These two beverages will work to prevent any drops in metabolism you may experience from any number of the things in our hectic lives.

5. Eat foods with low insulin and high protein. Make sure the fats that you're eating are the healthy ones. Watch what kind of carbs you are eating. One way to do this is to trade out the same amount of calories for more of a better food for you. So instead of 300 calories worth of chips, get the same amount of calories from almonds.

6. Alcohol should not be consumed. Alcohol will lower your levels of testosterone and quickly put on calories. It has no place in the world of abdominal muscles.
