Turning a keg into a six pack is no easy task. Your body will probably fight to keep the last little bit of fat that you may have.
Most of the time, people despair of ever getting rid of that spare tire round their waists; they give up before they get any results. This is especially true of those with endomorph body styles.
It might surprise them to know, however, that the battle to lose belly fat is often lost because of a few simple mistakes they’ve made. In order to get the abs that you have always dreamed off, there are three secrets that you should know.
Secret One: Do Full Body Workouts
What you may not realize is that doing abs crunches alone will do very little for your physique. In order to get amazing abs, you need to undertake full body workouts.
This includes doing cardio and muscle-building exercises. By doing a full body workout, you not only get great abs (through abdominal exercises) but also a great upper body to go along with them.
Secret Two: Lower Body Fat
One of the biggest challenges to sculpting six-pack abs is body fat covering the muscles. It’s that stubborn fatness that does not go away when you want it to.
In order to get amazing abs, you have to reduce the amount of body fat as a totality. This is done through a combination of exercise and diet. Doing cardio workouts more often will help burn calories and ultimately rid you of body fat.
On the other hand, eating everything in sight and doing cardio exercises will not get you great looking abs. You may also need to reduce your calorie intake. Just don’t starve yourself. Eat enough to get you through the day and through your workouts.
Secret Three: Eat 6~7 Meals a Day
As absurd as this may sound, eating more frequently in small quantities helps to regulate your body’s blood sugar level. That means fewer cravings for food.
Eating more meals a day but in reduced quantities also helps to regulate your metabolism and results in burning more fat in order for your body to function normally.
To make sure you are getting sufficient variety and nutrition in those meals, it helps to have a good source of recipes, specifically geared toward building abs, too.
So don’t give up. Getting the abs that you have dreamed of isn’t impossible. It just takes a bit of dedication and hard work, along with consistent application of these three secrets.
