Take 3 Steps Toward Better 6-Pack Abs Training in ONE Day!

If you want a sexy set of 6-pack abs then you need to take these 3 steps today.

When you get in the right mindset, fuel your body correctly and modify your abs training then you can easily build an amazing set of abs.

By the end of this article you will know exactly what it takes to have visible 6-pack abs.

Get In The Right Mindset

The first thing you want to do today is tell yourself that you WILL achieve visible abs. There is no need for excuses; anyone can have visible abs. It doesn’t matter if you think you have “bad genes” you can change your life to make your genes the best they can possibly be. It doesn’t matter if no one else in your family has visible abs, that just means they’re not living a lifestyle to attain a ripped stomach.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never seen your abs before. That just means that YOU haven’t been living a lifestyle that makes it possible for your abs to pop out.

That doesn’t mean that you can’t do it, it just means that you need to make some changes.

You need to take action and stick to it so that you can achieve your goal. When you learn new methods for attaining a 6-pack you need to try them out before you brush them off and say that they won’t work.

The information and methods are out there you just need to put them to use. Not everyone who has visible abs was born with them; they had to work for them too. Here is the next thing that you need to change.

Eat for Abs

There is only one reason that you can’t see your abs; it’s because there’s a layer of fat over them. So in order for you to get a washboard stomach you need to melt this layer of fat off your body. Thousands of crunches aren’t going to do this for you; you can’t spot reduce fat. No, what you need to do is modify your diet. Like I said, this information is already out there. You know the many different ways you can improve your diet and lose weight, but let me give you two tips to help you out.

First you want to go through your house and get rid of all the junk. Throw it out, feed it to the birds or give it to someone else; you don’t want this stuff in your house. So go through your fridge, freezer and cupboards and find all the ready-made meals. Things like TV dinners or family meals you can just pop in the microwave are full of horrible ingredients that will sabotage your ab-gaining efforts. Get rid of all the chips, sodas, a lot of your condiments and desserts to. This doesn’t mean that you have to give them up for life; you just don’t want a source of junk food in your house. It’s too easy for you to get to it. Plan out cheat meals on occasion and then go out to get your junk; don’t bring it home with you. Then you can restock your home with healthy food and drinks.

Next you’ll want look at the places in your house where you spend the most of your time. You don’t want any food sources near those places. Don’t have food sitting next to your favorite chair in your living room or on your computer desk. It’s too easy for you to reach out and start eating. Separate your eating from other things you do in your daily life. When it’s time to eat, you go to the kitchen to get your food. Force yourself to put in a little effort if you want to eat and it’ll keep you from overeating while you’re sitting around. If you have to get up to get food then maybe you’ll think twice about it and wait until you really should be eating again. But to ensure that your abs look good once you melt the fat off them, you’ll have to perform exercises that really work your ab muscles.

Train for Abs

You don’t want to have a workout filled with the age-old sit ups you learned in elementary school. You want to do exercises that are going to completely rock your abs and build a strong waist that looks amazing. And to do this sometimes you have to go about things in a backward approach. Like for instance doing reverse crunches on the floor. Get into the normal crunch position on the floor with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Then bring your knees up to your chest by flexing your abs and lifting your butt off the floor. Make sure that you keep your knees in that 90 degree position the whole time as you lower your legs back down to complete one rep.

You can also do exercises that might look odd, but are actually pretty effective, like a straight body side crunch. Lie on the floor on your side and put your arms straight out above your head, in line with your body. Keep your legs straight too and clasp your hands together. Then you want to raise both your arms and legs up at the same time so that they’re not touching the floor. Hold this position for as long as you desire and then flip over onto your other side and repeat for the same amount of time to complete one rep.

If you want to work your obliques even more then you ought to do a set of seated Russian twists while cycling your legs. Take a seat on the floor and cross your arms across your chest by grabbing your opposite shoulders. Then you want to lean back until your torso is at a 45 degree angle from the floor. Then you want to twist your torso to the right while bringing your right knee up to your chest. At the midpoint of this rep your left elbow will be touching your right knee. Then you reverse the motion and twist your torso to your left while bringing your left knee up to your chest and that’s one rep. These are three steps that you can implement in one day to help you work toward your 6-pack abs.

These simple changes are proven to help anyone gain a visible set of abs. When you change your mindset, change your diet and change your workouts you are three steps closer to a waist you can be proud of. You now know 3 things you can change today to boost your 6-pack abs training and break out your abs for all to see.

Good advice. How would you rate coffee? Is it a toss out or a keep?


Bendo13 profile image

Bendo13 5 years ago from Colorado Springs, Colorado Author

Thanks, WRParker86! Personally I don't like coffee... I don't like how it makes me feel - makes me hotter and sweat more and it doesn't give you energy - it's just a stimulant. I like to be comfortable when I workout and not dehydrate myself and coffee does the opposite for me.

But there have been studies that claim it helps boost your metabolism (the caffeine) and can help you lose weight faster. But for me, it just does't do much.

It could, however, help you if you're use to how it makes you feel and it doesn't make you jittery and too hot. If you feel comfortable when drinking coffee then perhaps you can benefit from combining the caffeine with something like green tea extract. They help each other out to boost fat burning, because caffeine alone doesn't do much. Take that mixture about a half hour before you workout and you should see results.

Thanks for the heads up. I feel like I need coffee to survive, so maybe back it off a little and adding the extract might be a great solution. You have been very helpful!
