Truth About Abs

0 601

With this article, I want to show you why you might be struggling to lose that stubborn stomach fat that is covering up your abs. These are the main reasons most people just can not seem to get those six pack abs that everyone desires. If you haven’t already seen me around online somewhere, I’m the creator of one of the most popular abdominals and fat loss programs on the internet.

So in this article I want to highlight for you the main points and strategies that I use to make this program one of the most effective programs in existance for fully developing your abdominals as well as getting rid of that stubborn stomach fat that is covering them up.

Pay attention, because once you get this stuff right and start using these techniques regularly, you’ll be showing off your ripped abs in no time flat, whether it’s at the beach, at the pool, in the bedroom, wherever… Just think how great it’s going to feel when people are complimenting you on your washboard stomach!

Alright, here’s what make’s The Truth about Six Pack Abs different:

1. The main focus of this program is NOT abs exercises… And, better yet, this program consistently get’s BETTER results by NOT focusing on abs exercises!

I know that sounds counterintuitive, but the fact of the matter is that abs exercises are ok, and you do need to do a certain amount of them to develop the abdominals as best as possible. But to be honest, most people that are trying to get better looking abdominals waste WAY too much time training the abs directly. What you really need to focus on is burning off the extra fat that is covering them up.

Let’s get this straight right now… Abs exercises do NOT burn fat away from your abs! This can only be accomplished through a much more effective full body training routine that maximizes both your metabolic response and your hormonal response to your workouts. This is the main focus of my Truth about Six Pack Abs Program.

Now don’t get me wrong. It wouldn’t be an abs program if I didn’t show you the most effective exercises for developing your abdominals. I also give you detailed instructions and photos on how to do them right. But like I said, the main focus of this program is the secret method that I use to compile the full body training routines and maximize your fat burning effect.

This is the main reason that this program will be MUCH more effective for you than any other abs programs you’ve ever tried before. You’ve got my word on that.

2. This program uses none of your typical boring monotonous cardio routines.

In fact, you don’t have to do any typical cardio if you don’t want to! I actually recommend against it.

Seriously, almost every program out there tells you that you MUST do endless cardio exercise regularly to lose the body fat that is covering your abs. Most of them tell you to do 30-60 minutes of cardio exercise 3-4 days/week in addition to your strength training routines.

The truth is that this is not only unnecessary, but it can actually be counterproductive if you’re really trying to get as lean as possible, as quick as possible. I go into this in much more detail in the book, but basically this all comes back to the aspects of your metabolic rate, how much lean muscle you have, the hormonal response in your body from the exercise, and the residual calorie burn in the hours and days following your workouts. And normal boring cardio routines are ALL WRONG when it comes to maximizing these effects!

Now you’re probably thinking that since I’m against typical boring cardio routines, then that must simply mean I’m a proponent of interval training. Yes, as a matter of fact, I believe interval training is MUCH better than typical cardio.

However, I also use a special exercise combination and sequencing in my Truth about Six Pack Abs Program that gets even more powerful fat loss and muscle defining results than interval training. And that’s saying something, because interval training kicks butt! You’ll find out how this system works inside the program.

Want proof that you don’t need typical long-duration steady-pace cardio?

Well, first of all, I actually took a course recently that was devoted to scientific research into why steady-pace cardio exercise is actually not that effective at strengthening the heart. The focus of the research basically boiled down to the fact that the heart needs to be trained in a wide variety of ranges to actually be truly strengthened and ready for all the various stresses that life throws at it. Not only that, but steady-pace cardio was also proven in the research studies to be far less effective in the long term at reducing body fat stores.

To give you a real life example… Personally, I haven’t done what most people would label “cardio” in probably well over 5 years, and I’m actually leaner now and have a lower bodyfat % now than years ago when I did cardio regularly. Not only that, but my heart is in the best condition ever, as I now consistently have the resting heart rate of an elite athlete at about 50 bpm (remember that lower is better). My resting heart rate used to be in the mid to upper 60’s years ago when I used to do typical cardio and strength training routines like most people do.

This improvement in both body fat % and reduced resting heart rate is the direct result of the unique training methods I used in developing the programs in The Truth about Six Pack Abs.

3. This program does NOT revolve around having to use supplements or “fat-loss” pills.

Trust me when I say that for the most part, about 95% of supplements are a complete waste of your hard earned money. I’ve been approached by supplement companies in the past looking for me to promote their products for them, and offering me a lot of money to do so. Well, you know what I do? I tell them to shove it! Seriously, I won’t promote something to my readers that I don’t honestly believe in.

The fact is, I’ve learned over the years through my own experience, as well as hundreds of my clients and friends experiences with supplements, that they are really just selling you the dream that their pill or powder will be some “magical” solution to your struggle with getting that lean ripped body that you’ve been wanting for years. In reality, most supplements do nothing at all to help you improve your body.

Don’t get me wrong… I’m not totally bashing supplement companies, but like I said, about 95% of the products they promote are worthless, and won’t create any noticeable changes in your body. I will admit that there can be a place for meal replacements for people that can’t find the time to prepare or pack all of their real food meals. I also admit that I do think a high quality, fast digesting protein like whey protein can be useful to mix into your post-workout smoothies.

But the fact is that real food is always better for you than processed supplements (as long as you pick the right “real foods”). Anybody that tells you otherwise has either been brainwashed by all of the propaganda and super-hyped up ads that the supplement companies have spread throughout every magazine on the planet, or they have financial ties to selling supplements in some way themselves.

I have dedicated myself to not being lured into the lucrative world of selling supplements. Even though I could make a lot more money selling supplements than by selling my abs program, it’s just plain against my morals to rip people off like that.

Frankly, it amazes me that most people are more willing to spend $30, $40, even $50 or more on a bottle of pills or powder than to spend $30 on a comprehensive training and nutrition guide like this Truth about Six Pack Abs program, which will set them up for life on training programs and dietary secrets that will keep them lean and ripped for life. The only thing that bottle of pills or powder is going to do is give you expensive urine! You make the choice.

4. This program does not revolve around using any fancy “ab machines” or “ab gadgets”.

In case you were suckered into buying any of these worthless ab belts, loungers, rockers, or any other worthless ab gadget or machine, I have bad news… You were ripped off!

The truth is that most of these machines and gadgets are not the best way to develop the abdominal muscles. Sure, some of them may help a tiny bit with strengthening the abdominals, but they are far less effective than some of the best floor, hanging, and standing abs exercises.

Also, more importantly, virtually all of these abs machines, belts, and gadgets do absolutely NOTHING to burn fat off of the abdominal area!

Again, losing the fat that’s covering up your abs can only be accomplished with a smart nutritional program, and a well designed progressional training program that increases your metabolism and stimulates your fat-burning hormones in your body. Achieving this is simple once you understand the secrets I reveal in the Midsection Meltdown program.

5. This program does not include some sort of fad diet or gimmicky diet trend.

None of that here. I promise you won’t be given any more crap about needing to eat “low-carb” or “low-fat”, or low or high anything, for that matter. The nutritional secrets I reveal in this program go against all of the authors and companies out there that are trying to lure you in with another one of their gimmicks.

The fact is that they need to come up with some sort of different “angle”, so that their diet program appears unique and gives the media something to talk about. That’s why there’s always some gimmick, like low-fat, or low-carb, or high protein, or the “colors diet”, the “low glycemic index diet”, the fasting diet, the cabbage diet, and so on.

Instead, I wanted to give you the TRUTH about what it really takes to eat a nutritious diet that not only will have you burning off that stubborn belly fat, but will also have you feeling full of energy every single day. If you don’t already feel energetic and alive every single day, then you are missing out, because it is an awesome feeling!

The great thing is that once you start eating balanced and healthy all the time, you virtually eliminate cravings altogether. Personally, I used to crave sweets constantly before I adopted the nutritious diet that I currently eat. Now, I can honestly say I can’t remember the last craving I had. It had to be more than 5 years ago… no joke!

Not only that, but I actually enjoy everything I eat way more than I used to years ago when I ate a lot of junk. Does that mean that I never eat burgers, or pizza, or beer? Of course not… We all have a social life. In fact, there are actually very healthy ways and variations to preparing healthier burgers and healthier pizza that I occasionally use.

I hope this article has given you some insight as to where you may be going wrong with your exercise and nutrition plans in striving for those elusive abs. See below for more info on losing stubborn stomach fat and developing ripped six pack abs.

Washboard, killer, six pack abs. Good looking guys and women with excellent midsection are admired and make other people’s jaw drop. If we can just do a hundred sit-ups a day, then it is possible to get the perfect abs that we want.

Myth alert!

It seems like not all the things that we heard from “experts” or overheard in the public areas are true. Maybe the reason why we are not getting those perfect abs are because we are not doing it right. Then that would be such a terrible waste of our time. So we need to know the myths and what is real to get the chiseled abs we want.

Six pack Myth 1: Abdominal muscle is different from regular muscle.

Muscle is muscle. Abdominal muscle is the same with our biceps and lats. The only difference is the location. Abdominal muscles are not resting on a bony surface, instead it is against the stomach and intestines. There is no significant difference whatsoever.

Six pack Myth 2: Strong abs means a strong back.

The key to a strong back is a balanced abdominal muscles. You can work your abs, but no more and no less than you work your other muscles throughout the day. There are heavy emphasis on working your abs, this heavy emphasis is often misunderstood to be the contributor of food health. Infomercials give the false belief that by working out just one part of your body will give your health great benefits.

Working out and exercise should not just be concerned with one part of the body. What you need is an overall body fitness to be healthy.

Six Pack Myth 3: You have to train your abs at least every other day.

They say that you need to train your abs hard enough twice a week, that is to give them time for recovery. The key is to choose exercises that fatigue your abs, so that they actually need recovery time. Include exercises that use the abs functionality. Since abs are used to stabilize the body, holding a push up position without letting your body sag will really feel and develop your abdominal muscles.

Six Pack Myth 4: To gain results, high repetitions are required.

The key to abdominal gains is the to overload. If you aim abdominal endurance, the more crunches you do each time, the more you can do later on. It does not strengthen the abs very much but it also eats up most of your time.

Six Pack Myth 5: Hard rock abs can be attained by doing a lot of sit-ups.

Many doctors say that sit-ups and crunches are the work exercises and perhaps should never be done. A common mistake done during crunches, is throwing the neck out. Crunches and sit-ups cause the abdominal muscles to be pulled to tight, this excessive pulling put stress on the neck or what is known as throwing the neck out. The overuse of crunch type exercises may even lead to the reduction of thoracic extension and contributes to bad posture.

Six Pack Myth 6: It takes years to get great abs.

Everyone has abdominal muscles, you just need to train them in the correct order and reduce the fat surrounding them. For some, it would take a few weeks. For other it may be longer. Different body type develop at different rates.

One of the major reasons that people work on their physical fitness is the importance that general fitness has in terms of performing well in sport. Someone can be technically gifted in a sport – skilled at passing a football, able to hit an excellent forehand in tennis or have superb accuracy when shooting a basketball. But when you lack the core fitness that professionals have, the technical ability is not enough.

Increasing your core fitness and strength will allow you to better showcase your sporting ability. If your tennis shots are particularly good, then adding strength in your core region (of which the abdominal muscles are a key part) will enable you to play those shots more often and more consistently. It will also allow you to put more power into shots and running.

The amount of work that you do to maintain fitness is reflected in the results that you get on the sporting field. There are players, and indeed even teams, who are well-known for being prodigiously skilful in short bursts, and starting matches particularly well, yet end up losing more often than not because they don’t have the ability to finish as well as they start.

If you build better abs, you will find that the final few minutes of the match go a lot better for you. You will be better able to maintain concentration because you will not be so tired. You will have better posture when it comes to taking a shot because your core strength allows you to stand upright. Better core strength makes you a better athlete.

“Health” and “fitness” are two terms which are often used as though they were synonymous, when in reality they are not. However, the reason that they are used in this way is that they are influential upon one another. The healthier you are, the easier it is to stay fit, and the fitter you are the healthier you are likely to be.

This extends to getting the best abdominal muscles. Good abdominal muscles will provide better muscular support to every organ in the area and allow you to have a better level of digestive health. Not only that, but the benefits of doing the right exercise, eating well and taking the right supplements will also have an important effect on your general health.

Putting the work in to get the best abs is something worth doing for your own good, and it allows you to learn about yourself, find out more about your body and gain in strength and conditioning. Having good core strength is highly beneficial in terms of getting the right exercise for many other purposes. If you are strong in the abdominal muscle area it will help your endurance for general exercise.

The most important thing you can do if you want to be healthy is look after your body. The increased awareness that you will gain by working on your abs and monitoring the results will be of vital importance when it comes to increasing your general level of fitness, with positive results all round

Times have really changed. Before, men are the only ones who would want to have a muscular body. So what they do, they go through rigorous training and exercise just to achieve six-pack abs. But now, women are also into the same thing because many of them believe that having a muscular body can be a gauge of their sexiness.

Studies show that more and more women are into getting six-pack abs because they are so conscious about their appearance. Since having six-pack abs indicate that one is slim, many of them are into losing weight. For those who are thinking of ways on how to get six-pack abs, losing weight can be an effective key but they must familiarize themselves with various means of weight loss before trying one.

Weight loss as an effective key to six-pack abs

Indeed, one of the most effective means of getting six-pack abs is to lose weight. And for most women, the easiest means of losing weight is through a weight loss program, which can either be followed by attending a class or can be used a guide especially on online classes. While it’s true that many people can attest to the effectivity of various weight loss programs, please bear in min that not all programs will lead to desirable results. To ensure that if the weight loss program will help you get six-pack abs, make sure you’re your conduct research on the available programs very well.

Nowadays, there are so many programs for losing weight. But, fitness experts categorize these into two—the clinical and the non-clinical. Clinical refers to the services provided in a health-care setting such as clinic or hospital and administered by licensed health care professionals like doctors, nurses, dietitians, and psychologists who suggest scientifically-proven weight loss care and treatment. Here, services such as physical activities, nutrition education, behavior change therapies, and surgeries are included to ensure that the program will help the student achieve a desirable body.

Non-clinical, on the other hand, pertains to commercially-operated weight loss procedures that privately owned such as in weight loss chain. This type usually requires people to join others in a support group, a worksite program, or community-based projects and may require patients to use the various foods or supplements offered by the program. The patients can follow a non-clinical program on their own with the help of a counselor, a guidebook, a website, or even the use of weight-loss products.

The type of weight loss program to get six-pack abs will depend on your schedule and your need. But experts warn that no matter which type of program you choose, make sure that you engage in any activity or diet provided by the program to ensure results. It is also advisable to visit a registered or licensed physician first before using any weight loss product offered by the program like food supplements, herbs, or over-the-counter medications and rigid sets of exercises.

Adhering to weight loss diets can also be an effective means of losing weight and achieving six pack abs. More and more people agre that weight loss diets can promote simple processes of burning calories such as the “Atkins Nutritional Approach” allowing the person to eat satisfying amounts of delicious and nutrient foods while customizing the program to specific individual needs, tastes and preferences; the “Bill PhillipsEating For Life,” based on four primary ingredients such as food, amount, combos, and times; “the Blood Type Diet” aiming to lose weight by matching the body’s biological profile through blood type, and the “NutriSystem” that manages diet through prepackaged foods that are ideal for people who want to achieve six-pack abs despite their busy schedules.
