Six pack abs. A flat stomach. A toned mid section. Everybody wants ABS –
Here’s the problem, though: most folks think that hundreds of situps and crunches per day is the answer. Not only is this approach ineffective, it can also destroy your neck and back.
The BIGGEST factor in getting the flat stomach you desire? Your diet. You have abs already, believe it or not – the trick is losing the layer of body fat that’s covering them up 🙂 Here’s an article I recently wrote if you need some help in that area – it’s an example of what I do to keep my body fat at a reasonable level year-round – and more importantly, it’s a do-able plan you can stick with for the long term:
Secondly, you need to focus on training your abs RIGHT way. This means sticking to metabolism-boosting high intensity workouts that work your entire body while also working your abs.
Here’s an awesome article by Mike Geary, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer and
author of best-seller The Truth about Six Pack Abs, that gives you a great example of what I’m talking about (click the link below to check it out):
In summary, the two most important factors when it comes to getting that flat stomach you’re after are 1) a clean diet and 2) a properly structured training plan. I hope the two resources provided in this article help you reach your flat belly goals. Keep training hard and talk to you soon!
P.S. I have a fitness presentation for groups that I’ve been working on for the last few months on this very topic – and I’d like to ask for your help in getting the word out!
In the presentation, I cover the same info I just did in this article – plus, I actually take everyone through a short five minute ab circuit (it’s a bit of an ‘active’ presentation 🙂 ). I also raffle off a couple of free two-week trial passes to my boot camp at the end of the presentation and give everyone in attendance an opportunity to book a free trial session …
IF you might be interested in hosting a talk like this for your employees, organization, etc., OR you know anyone who would, your help would be much appreciated … contact me via email or phone and we’ll get something set up! It’s a totally free presentation for your group, and it helps me get get some public speaking practice and the word out about my program. Thanks in advance!
