I have been saying it for a while and it's getting closer and closer to the time where you will want to be looking as good as you can be. Holiday season is among us and as someone who trains a lot you will want to make sure you're looking your best for it. Not just that, but when summer hits us we wear less clothes and therefore we want to make sure we look and feel great to boost our confidence and well-being.
Abs Are Made ...
The familiar saying is that abs are made in the kitchen but I tend to disagree with this because I feel like abs are made in the gym as well. Therefore you can't just solely concentrate on your diet or what you do in the gym as separate things, they both have to come together properly so you can achieve the best results.
Forget The Crunches
The last thing you want to do when wanting to achieve a six pack is doing endless crunches at home, in the gym and where ever else you deem fit to do them. Quite frankly, performing this amount of repetitions is pointless and it won't get you anywhere because you can't spot reduce on your body. You can't target just one area and turn it from fat to muscle, so you have to make sure you are working a full package.
Become A Lion
In other words, make sure you are doing everything in your power during your workouts to see a difference and not just when you train your stomach muscles. In all your sessions, however you work each individual muscle, you need to ensure you're giving 100%.
The best thing you can do whenever you want to lose body fat and see those flat stomach muscles is ensuring you eat well. We all know what is healthy and what isn't, make the right choices for you and you will see results, it's as simple as that.
