The 3 Best Ways to Get 6-Pack Abs

 

Get 6-Pack Abs



Getting six-pack abs requires dedication and hard work, but it doesn't mean you have to go to the gym seven days a week or become a professional bodybuilder. You just have to do a few key things consistently, and that's what we're gonna look at in this article.


Number one: Cut your calories.

Basically, if you can't see your abs, then it's because you have extra fat over the top. So, the way to get rid of that fat is to cut your calorie intake so that you're consuming fewer calories than you're burning. There's a range of eating patterns and strategies that can help you do just that, and we've got loads of videos on how to do these. You can just search the channel. Basically, you've gotta cut down heavily on refined food and junk food and alcohol, and eat real whole foods. If you don't change your diet, then even doing a thousand sit-ups a day is not gonna show your abs.

Number two: Do more cardio.

Cardio, also called aerobic exercise, is any form of exercise that increases your heart rate. Regularly incorporating cardio into your routine can help you burn extra calories and therefore extra fat and speed your way to a set of six-pack abs. But basically, it helps you burn more calories. So, if you are also eating fewer calories, the calorie deficit you are creating is bigger and then you will lose fat quicker. Try to get to 20 to 40 minutes of moderate or vigorous activity a day or between 150 to 300 minutes per week. You can do things from brisk walking to running, cycling, swimming, any kinda sport that you enjoy. Get moving.

Number three: Exercise your abdominal muscles.

So, this one's pretty obvious. If you want to have abs that stick out and show, then you gotta have strong abs. In saying that, doing ab exercises like crunches and things isn't as important as we've been led to believe. Like I've been saying, if you have extra fat over the abs, then no amount of ab work is gonna get them to stick through until you've reduced that fat. As you'd expect, this study found that six weeks of abdominal exercise training alone five days a week was not sufficient to reduce abdominal subcutaneous fat and other measures of body composition.


Now, if you've already done the hard part and your body fat percentage is really low, then, for sure, crunches, bridges, abdominal planks are gonna help those abs become stronger and bigger and they're gonna show through even more. But like I've been saying, if you're going from the start, you need to look at your diet first. As the saying goes, abs aren't made in the gym, they're made in the kitchen.
