Subj: How to get 6-Pack Abs.
I’ll keep this article short and to the point because beach season is right around the corner.
Dudes want to have a 6-pack. Girls want dudes that have a 6-pack.
So, how do you get 6-pack abs?
Obtaining washboard abs is a two-part formula:
#1. You must have muscular abs +
#2. You must be lean enough for your muscular abs to show through the skin.
To get muscular abs, you must train hard. To get lean, you need to eat right amount of the right food:
The 3 Part Solution to Develop 6-Pack Abs
#1) Intermittent fasting
Intermittent fasting is quite possibly the fastest way to get 6-pack abs. I prefer the 16/8 intermittent fasting method where you fast for 16 hours and eat with an 8 hour window.
Within this 8 hour ‘feeding window’, I usually eat 2 meals and have several snacks.
Within days of intermittent fasting I notice improvement in my abdominal definition.
Be sure to drink a lot of water while intermittent fasting. I drink over 2 gallons a day. I fill my Nalgene bottle with water and drink it constantly throughout the day. Usually, I’ll drink a gallon before noon. It curbs hunger, flushes your system and helps metabolize fat.
#2) Eat clean
Eating clean is easier said than done. It starts at the grocery store – Only buy clean foods and you will only eat clean foods.
Meal prep is another trick to ensure you eat healthy.
Have healthy snacks like almonds and nuts on hand at all times incase hunger strikes.
Eat beef, chicken, fish, eggs and green vegetables for 80% of your diet.
Go low-carb. Pasta, rice, cereal and breads are off limits or to be eaten in small amounts. Most of this stuff is garbage anyway. Personally, it makes me bloated and lethargic. I love pasta and bread but I feel much better now that I don’t eat it (often). It’s easy to ween yourself from things once you see and feel the benefits.
#3) Train hard
The best way is total body training using heavy lifting.
Squats, deadlifts, bench press, overhead press, and barbell rows are must dos.
Train as heavy as you can safely. Training heavy with these exercises guarantees you have a strong core or else you would buckle under the weight.
6-Pack Abs Workout
I rarely train abs directly. I developed abs primarily through heavy squats and deadlifts. So, you need to get aquatinted with basic barbell training if you aren’t already.
The best ab exercises are weighted cable crunches, leg lifts on a bench, and hanging leg raises.
Make it a point to do 4 sets of one of these exercises after every workout and you’ll be trading in that keg for a 6-pack in no time.
