How to Get Six Pack Abs?
Everyone has the muscles that make up the 6-pack, but for most of us they are not well-defined and hidden under a layer of fat. Here are some tips to help you show off your six pack muscles as fast as possible.
Lose Extra Fat
No matter how many crunches you do, you won’t see the six-pack abs you want if they are hiding under a layer of stomach fat. To keep your body fat low enough to see your muscle definition, you need to consider both your diet and how much fat is being burned during your workouts.
If you are strength training with high-intensity circuits, you are probably burning plenty of fat with your workouts and just need to focus on adjusting your diet (I would recommend cutting out extra carbs as a way to cut calories without sacrificing nutrition.)
If your strength training workouts are lower intensity, you might need to add in some cardio exercise to kick up your body’s fat burning engine.
Do the Right Ab Exercise
Grab an ab wheel for a truly challenging ab workout that will get you results much faster than crunches.
Start on your hands and knees, knees under hips, holding the handles of an ab wheel. Slowly roll the wheel out, engaging your abs to keep your back flat and extend your arms out in front as you roll. When you feel like you’ll fall if you go any farther, use your abs to roll yourself back in to starting position.
