What's the fastest and most effective way of getting flat abs
be it exercise, diet or whatnot, what do you suggesting is the best way of getting rid of those flabby abs
This is a very good workout program: http://www.twohundredsitups.com/ Basically you do a specific amount of abs between intervals of min. 1 minute. Do it 3 times a week, and you will see the difference!
In my experience, drink more water, gets rid of toxins and yesterday's food quicker, regulates your body, walk at a medium pace for 30 min per day. I found this out from physio therapist when I hurt my back. and told not to run for 6 months, so I walked and still lost stomach fat. This is from a guy who used to do 200 sit-ups..
Now, I do just 50 to 75 every 2 or 3 days and some walking while in recovery phase. Obviously, not many carbs/breads, especially after 5 pm.
hope that helps
Being a Stott Certified Pilates instructor I get asked this question alot! I find the ab structure to be genetic. What I mean is not everyone, no matter how thin will be able to display the "6 pack ab" look. It is also a matter of diet , not only exercise. You want to have good abs because they of course look better but it also protects your back. I tell people to go to your local library, check out a video on mat pilates, clean up your diet, eat smaller portions and do aerobic exercise. There isn't a magic workout only the one you will stick to. It will be good for your overall health and bring you closer to your goal. If you are lucky to have a pilates studio in your area then check out some classes or take a few private sessions and the instructor will be able to take you to where you want to be!
Eat cleanly (no fake sugars and other artificial ingredients the body doesn't process efficiently). More fiber, water and aerobic exercise. Less simple carbs.
i used to see in my gym some guys are cnsuming some pills and work out.They told that pills will help to burn extra fat easily.but i never prefer this.
swinging kettlebell, from feet to waist or doing leg raises with a 20 lb weight between your feet will tighten your lower abdomen.
I'm not sure if you saw this DVD but it's called "Insanity". It is a workout that is guarantee to give you results. Also stay away from starch foods such as; white bread, mash potatoes, grits, etc. Continue doing sit-ups and other ab workouts and eat right.
FYI: Make sure you stretch before and after your workout.
The abs aren't designed to be a muscle that contracts and relaxes like a bicep, but rather a muscle that stays contracted to keep you erect, etc.
Planks are the best ab exercise. Just hold a plank for at least 60 seconds and do it a few times per week.
Diet is critical to being able to see the muscle definition. Stop eating grain, fruit and dairy if you are serious about visible six pack.
It is true that the reason you don't see the muscles is because they are covered by a layer of fat and not chiseled and visible in everyone. I would recommend fat burning exercises, high intensity aerobics. Cut out the sugar, junk food, eat food that looks like what it is.
It's all about the diet, imo. If you can't fix your diet then no amount of exercise is going to get you those abs you want.
One way I found to be efficient was to target ALL of your abs. My friend, who is an EXTREME workout girl, said do 3 different ab exercises that target all of the abs and do 3 rotations of it. For example, you might do the bicycle, leg lifts, and toe touches 20 count of each, 3 times. Be sure to switch out the exercises so that your body doesn't get use to the workout. Hope you'll keep us posted on your results!
Flabby bellies are due to lack of muscle use. Sitting around letting your stomach slob over your belt or walking around that way is never going to help tone those muscles. Flabby abs is lazy stomach muscles.
From what I understand we can do all the sit ups, crunches, or tummy exercises we want, unless we dump fat it is not going to do anything but give us a bigger belly. Stomach fat accumulates because of the way we eat or don't eat. It is the storehouse for our bodies during the starvation periods. Problem is we never experience it, at least not all of us.
Change how you eat, hold in your stomach using both the lower and upper abdomen muscles and experiment with different exercise programs. Everyone has their favorite you need to find yours.
Me? I have a soft belly and am alright with it.
Very simple, core and cardio daily.
You can add muscle tone with core exercises but without cardio, you will not be able to achieve the results you desire.
Exercise is effective and best method of getting rid of stubborn fats at your abs.
You have to be determined and doing cycling exercise (lying on your back and stimulate the cycle motion).
After which, you have to do leg raising at 30 degrees angle and holding it for a minute before resting. Repeat for 3 cycles.
Lastly, do the scissor exercise while lying on your back (crossing your leg while holding it at 30 degrees angle) for at least a minute. Repeat for 3 cycles.

Why does my lower back hurts when I do abs workout?I lay down on my back and do several different sit-ups, sometimes with the upper body, sometimes with the legs getting up and down. But my lower back always hurt. I can feel a gap between my back and the floor when I lay down on my back.

THIS is just a little rant to convince people to forget about the scale and focus on the real enemy - body fat + a little bit of shameless self promotion [rant]The mistake that most people do, when they want to start a exercise program and diet, is to think that the bad shape their body is in is...

I have heard many people complain about not being able to get a six pack, but the problem I find is most people aren't willing to put forth the time and effort it takes to get one and fall for the fast abs gimmicks that refuse to point out the fact that everybody's different. "does anybody...
