Tips to Getting the Flat Stomach You Want

We've all seen those perfectly flat toned stomachs, six pack abs and beach bodies on tv, most if not all of us have thought about how nice it'd be if we could look like that at some point in time. Maybe you've thought "No way anyone really looks like that its a touch-up" or maybe you just scoffed at the idea thinking "My stomach could never look like that".Well I'm here to tell you that Yes some people actually do look like that, and Yes you definately can too. With the right advice, motivation and (of course) some determination from you this can become your reality.Let's talk about how you can make this happen. Some have already tried perhaps many different ways to achieve those six pack abs only to find all their work just couldn't produce the results wanted or planned. In this article were going to be talking about some of the excercises that do work,as well as what does not, and how to take action to help you get the results you want.

Today we'll cover some abdominal workouts. There are numerous excercises you can do to target the different muscles of your core ( targeting specific muscles is the key to success), For starters you have the regular set-up and crunches, back to the basics here... ( we can probably all remember elementary and junior high, yes those same ones we liked to cheat when the p.e. teacher wasnt looking Lol! ) These emphasize on the upper and middle ab muscles. For the lower abs you need to be doing leg raises, hanging knee raises and such. Your also going to want to focus on your obliques ( the muscles along both sides of your abs ).These excercises will do exactly what they're supposed to and work the targeted muscles, but the key is in making sure your doing them right. Pay more attention to each rep and less to how many you can get done in a set.You'll see better results by taking your time doing them slow and concentrating on contracting the muscle rather than zooming through trying to reach a set number. "Quality first then Quantity". You'll get there if you work towards it.

Now it's time to put in some cardio, this is a very important part of getting your flat stomach and six pack abs. To see those muscles you've been working so hard on you've got to get rid of the excess body fat ( that for most of us likes to hang around our mid section). To do this we have to burn off more calories than we're taking in. By doing cardio fitness you are raising your heart rate and using various muscles, depending on the cardio regimen you choose, in doing this the rate your body burns calories for energy is increasing. However, there is another key to burning more calories than your taking in...

Diet, I know no one likes to hear that word but it is a major factor in achieving that flat stomach and rock hard abs. You DO NOT need to starve yourself, in fact, that can actually cause your body to store more of the food you eat. Rather break your meals up into 4 or 5 small meals. This way you "trick" your body into thinking it is getting more, which will cause you to store less of those intake calories. Limit the amounts of starches you consume like bread and pastas, Also try to avoid as many simple carbs as possible such as sugar.

Getting those six pack abs and/or flat tummy just isn't as easy as doing a few set-ups everyday ( for most of us ); there are alot of variations of muscle targeting excercises, diets, weight loss plans, and programs to choose from and follow to achieve your personal goals.

There are just to many to get into 1 article posting, I could probably write a book with everything out there, but we will be getting into them later. Talk to your personal trainer. Getting the results that you want takes time and effort. It is a process, but there are ALOT of really good products that can help to expediate it and make reaching your goals all that much faster. Each of us are different, and not all programs and/or products will produce the same results for everyone. Why shouldn't our weight loss and fitness regimens be as unique as we are?

I hope this article has been beneficial in giving you a headstart to take action. We are always here to address any questions you may have or to help you find, and set, an individualized program to get the results you crave.
