5 packs of 6 really useful tips
These 6 pack of tips will help you develop your six pack abs. Now, it takes a bit of time to tear, but these tips will minimize that time to a great extent.
So give them a try. I think you will be surprised how much they help!
1. Eat less
Okay, if you want to have strong abs, then you need to lose body fat. No one will be able to see your abs, no matter how big, if you have fat covering them.
And the only way to lose body fat is to eat less. That is as simple as it sounds. Nobody likes to diet, but there it is.
Once your body fat is low enough, your muscles (especially your abs) will start to shine. You will look more muscular and sexy, even if you just lost weight.
2. Lose 1 to 1.5 pounds per week
Lose just a little fat each week. Don’t go on a crazy, fast-paced diet and try to lose a ton of weight quickly; you will only be hurting your progress.
Why? Well, if you lose weight faster than 1 or 1.5 pounds per week, you will lose about half the fat and half the muscle after that. Which is not a good proportion; Muscle is precious like gold, and you must protect it at all costs!
Of course, this does not mean that it will take you longer to reach your goal. You will be taking the most efficient way to blow yourself up.
3. Lifting weights
Lifting weight is vitally important to getting a 6 pack broken. Not only will weight lifting make your muscles stronger, but it will also help you retain muscle mass when dieting and burn calories.
Now your weight training program doesn’t have to be incredibly complicated. Just lift once or twice a week, if you work hard, that’s fine.
Oh, and for your routine, keep it simple. Don’t overdo it with small lifts, like bicep curls and calf extensions. Work up a sweat and work hard with some great lifts like squats, deadlifts, bench presses, standing presses, clean and press, and chin-ups.
Ab exercises are helpful, but only after you’ve lost most of the body fat that you need to lose. That is the time to start worrying about enlarging your abdominal muscles.
4. Tea and espresso
Green tea and coffee (especially espresso) will help you lose weight. And not for the reasons you might think.
First of all, none of the theses have calories. Okay, maybe if you have five shots of espresso it will be two or three, but it is essentially zero. Which makes them so much better to drink than orange juice, milk, or triple mocha-frapa-latte-whatever with three shots of vanilla.
Both tea and coffee also contain caffeine, which helps mobilize fatty acids (so you can burn fat for fuel more easily) and stay active. Again, this won’t make up for a crappy diet, but it will help if combined with good eating habits.
5. Be cold
Being cold will help you lose fat. Not a ton, but a few.
See, your body burns a lot of energy every day to keep you at a constant body temperature. If you’re cold, whether it’s turning the thermostat down, taking cold showers, wearing fewer layers, or drinking tons of cold water, you’ll lose weight faster.
