Everyone is striving for that great six pack. Okay, that’s clearly a false statement. If everyone were really working hard to get a nice set of abs, plenty more people would have them by now. In reality, most people are hardly working out. They do so when it’s convenient for them and doesn’t interfere with their TV schedule. One reason folks aren’t getting motivated is due to results. Or should I say lack there of? You see, when it comes to working out and getting fit, people want it to happen over night. Unfortunately that is not realistic. It takes proper dieting and a regular ab workout to get that chiseled six pack. Are you willing to do the work? I know you’ll love the results.
Showing off muscles is something everyone likes to do. It’s not just a guy thing. Girls also enjoy strutting across the beach in their new two-piece and exposing their rock-hard abdominal muscles. It’s a great feeling to know you’re lean and strong. But, what is the best ab workout, and is there a little more involved? Well, it all starts with your diet. Think about what you consume each day. Do you focus on foods that are high in fat and sugar? This is a major no-no. If you want your abs to show and look amazing, you shouldn’t be consuming tons of fat and unhealthy calories. Try a low-fat diet with plenty of exercise and water. In order to show off your abs, you need to remove the excess fatty tissue that covers them up. But not without adopting the right kind of diet. Then there’s the ab workout aspect of it all. This is just as important. You want to try exercises that put good strain on your abdominal muscles specifically. For example, sit-ups primarily work your sides, and not your abs. So this is not a good ab workout. Try crunches, but perform them properly. Lie on your back, place your legs up on a chair so that your knees point straight up to the ceiling, clasp your hands behind your head and clench you tummy. You should come about a third of the way off the floor. When you clench, hold it for a few seconds before you relax and start again. This will put better strain on the abdominals.
The key is knowing which ab workout works and which ones are useless. Other great abdominal exercises you may want to try are; crunches with the Swiss ball, knee raises, crunches holding a medicine ball over your head, and decline crunches on a bench.
