Having a lean, defined midsection is at the top of a lot of people’s fitness goal list.
At the end of the day, though, a clean diet is a big part of getting a flat stomach … which is at the top of a lot less people’s goal list 🙂
If abs are what you’re after … and you don’t like the idea of dieting … I have “kinda” good news for you.
The bad news is, if your body fat is relatively high (mid teens % or more for men, low 20’s % or more for women), you gotta get with the program, and clean up your diet, to get that lean belly you’re after.
*If you are in the Sacramento, CA area, sign up for our Rapid Fat Loss Challenge VIP pre-registration list, and get access to a fantastic new fat loss dieting method we’ve started using @ FVT recently with some incredible results:
On the other hand, if you have strong and well-developed abdominal musculature – you can get a flat stomach, and even visable abs, a lot quicker than if you don’t.
As an example … guys in the couple-of-percentages-above-ten body fat range, and gals in the upper teens range, may not need to diet down much, if at all, in order to see their abs. Many times, doing the right kind of ab training does the trick.
And, if your body fat is already low, but you don’t have the ab definition you desire quite yet, changing the way you train your abs will also likely get you to where you want to be.
So, what is the “right” way to train your abs?
The answer to that, I will have for you very soon … as this week’s “theme” @ FVT is how to get strong, functional, and defined abs.
