I will be honest with you. I have had six pack abs in the past and I don’t have them right now however, I would like to tell you I have did it once and right now I am working on losing some pounds. My goal is to get those six packs again.
I have done it once and I know I can do it again. If you want to know more about me, you can read the about me section of this website which will give you details about me.
As I know few things about getting that washboard abs, I will be sharing few things with you in this post. I would like to share my experience on how can get that chiselled look and who you can get those abs.
There are lot of articles, programs and many other devices that are being marketed which I think are waste of time. Some are good but if you stick to my basic advice, you should be able to get that abs.
So what is the right way to get six pack abs?
Do you know that we all have abs muscles? Yes, if you are fat and you have a big tummy, you still have abs muscles. Only thing wrong is that it is covered with a layer of fat which is also called adipose cells.
Once you get rid of that fat, your abs muscles will revealed and you will get the six packs you need.
The challenge is to get rid of that fat. You can reduce that fat by doing ab exercises and by buying some fancy equipment.
To get rid of that fat, you have to burn calories. That is done when you go on a diet which has low fat and low carbohydrate diet. But the diet should have some good protein in it. The idea when you are losing weight or losing fat is to maintain your muscle mass and burn your fat tissue. There is no point in burning the muscle weight.
If you burn the fat tissue and maintain your muscle mass, you will get that sexy look you have always dreamed of.
Ok, so let cut to the chase and let me give you three tips to get rid of your belly fat.
The first tip is something I already mentioned again. But it is worth mentioning again. As they say “Repetition is mother of skill”. The more we read something over and over again, the better chances for us to remember it. J. Anyway let’s get to the point?
To reduce your belly fat, the first thing you need to do is reduce your intake from fat. There are many things in fat but I will keep it simple. You have to stop eating junk food. Anything which has high quantity of sugar and oil has to be avoided at any costs.
You also have to reduce your carbohydrates intake and you should eat carbohydrates that have a high glycemic index. I will explain about glycemic index in another post. Carbohydrates have a protein sparing effect and it will give you the energy you need to maintain your daily activity and also will spare protein to do its work. Protein’s work is to maintain your muscles mass. You should eat protein from animal sources because they have complete protein. This includes meat, fish and chicken. If you are vegetarian, you can go for cottage cheese, curd and milk.
Aim to eat at least one gram of protein for 1 kg (2.2 pounds) of your body weight.
The second tip is to do some kind of cardiovascular exercise. This means you have to do running, jogging, swimming or cycling. Jogging is always the best. Build your endurance or stamina and aim to run eventually for half an hour to 60 minutes every day.
If you do these two things as a ritual, you will start to see abs in a very short time. It all depends on how much fat you will have to lose to reveal that abs. So these are the best way to get six pack abs at home and you don’t have to go to the gym.
The key to success is to take action.
The third tip that I will suggest is to do crunches 3 times in a week. Although spot reduction is not possible and it is has been proved by science. Exercising and isolating you abs will bring the shape you are looking for.
