How To Get A Six Pack

How To Get A Six Pack 1


 Do you want to know how to get a six pack? The real question is “how do I unveil my six-pack?”. I don’t care who you are, if you are overeating and under exercising, don’t expect to see them abs. Now if you are not on the lean side and you have excess body fat then you can’t just think “But I do hundreds if not thousands of sit-ups a day, but I can’t see them. All the ab exercises in the world won’t do it for you if you are not paying attention to other factoring issues.

This is your nutrition, exercise and your lifestyle. Its basic maths, you need to be consuming less calories than you burn, this means you need to be in an energy deficient state. Let’s say you need 2500 calories just to maintain your body weight for your daily activity levels, so if we cut 500 calories from your diet then your body must find that energy from elsewhere, so it recruits it from your fat cells. 

If you lost 500 calories per day via diet  and exercise or a combination of the both, then 7 days of this equals 3,500 calories which equals about 1 pound of fat lost, but remember that this is from over your total body weight, you cannot spot reduce from only certain areas. 

My theory is that ab exercises are great for strengthening, toning and sculpting, but if you want to see this muscle group then you had better eat clean, train hard, recover and sleep well. Although it is good to strengthen your core and do these abdominal exercises, it is not the most effective way for burning calories. 

So, you must think about how much time you have to invest in your training. You would burn so many more calories from hard intense weight training sessions, using the best basic compound exercises, such as squats, deadlifts, bench press and military press, for the same amount of time than you would doing crunches. This is because of your total level of effort would be far more demanding as it would involve moving more musculature. 

I believe that if you want to burn off that unwanted body fat then weight training is the best way to go, as the more muscle that you can add to your body, the more calories your body will burn even when at rest.

So if you want to become a fat burning machine, then use the big basic compound exercises and follow a sound nutrition plan (Not a diet), one that you can stick to and implement as part of a healthier lifestyle.
