Six Components Of A Six Pack

Six pack abs are a lofty goal for some but for the strong willed and ambitions it can be a piece of cake! The best weapon for getting six pack abs is knowledge. Here, I break down the six components of a six pack! In no particular order, here they are:

You NEED to have proper nutrition to reach any serious fitness goal. This is not as hard as it seems, however. You just need to meet certain quotas and not go to far past others. It helps to eat plenty of meat and green vegetables. I am sure the meat will not be a problem but if you must skip the veggies, you need to start taking multivitamins. Also take fish oils for brain function and joint health among other things.

Meat has another obvious purpose. You need to meet your protein requirements to grow muscle. This is not that difficult and most of the information grossly overestimates your daily requirements. Remember to eat your fats too. You need fat as a stable energy source and for regulating your hormones. Carbs should be generally avoided, but not to the point of total eradication. Also remember to get some fiber to make things go a lot more smoothly. High protein diets are known to be a little messy...

Work out your abs like you would any other muscle. Abs are not special and deserve no special treatment. Do exercises that you can only do about twelve reps for and organize a routine of reps and sets. You need to put in work that hits your upper abs, lower abs, and obliques. Remember to always do more with each workout to make progress. Once again, abs are just another muscle group.

To lose body fat you have to build up muscle and do some intense cardio. Build up muscle everywhere you can. Muscle burns calories in a passive manner and therefore can be a great assist. Doing intense cardio stimulates your body to run more efficiently. This means getting rid of excess body fat by increasing your metabolism.

You need to give yourself time between workouts. Going too hard for consecutive days will only wear you out and make you miss out on any progress you would have otherwise made. A general rule of thumb for this is to take one day off for every two days of hard training.

Finally, you need to continue to learn and make use of the experience you gain while training. You must develop on your own and find out what works best for you. When it comes to training, one size rarely fits all!
