Six Pack Stomach – How to Really Get Those Six Pack Abs!

There are a lot of info commercials selling abdominal machines of all kinds claiming to be the best way to get a six pack stomach.


If it is that easy you would think that every one would have a six pack stomach.While many of these machines are great for developing your abs, to see your six pack stomach you need to get rid of your tummy fat.


In order to get a nice six-pack, you will need to lower your body fat percentage. This will remove the layer of fat that is preventing those beautiful abs from being seen.


When you go to the beach you will notice that most skinny people already have good abdominal muscles even if the don’t work out. The reason for this is because they have a low body fat content.


You will need to do more than abdominal exercises to reduce the percentage of body fat to where it needs to be. A combination of diet and exercise is required.


One more wrong belief is that by simply exercising the muscles located below an area of your body, you can burn the fat in that target area. This is totally not true. Your body will adjust to your exercise routine and will use the appropriate energy source needed for the completion of your routine.


Carbohydrates or proteins are usually used during this type of exercise. Now, which abdominal exercises are going to provide the most bang for your buck?


There is no need for any special equipment, you can get a six pack stomach by doing the following exercises:


There are two simple workouts which I advise – three sets of crunches at 80% of your maximum. Be comfortable as you lie flat on your back, place your hands on your chest, then bend your knees, your heels close to your bottom.

In order to begin your “crunches”, pull in your navel toward the floor, and roll your body forward smoothly beginning with your head. You want to go forward just enough to get the middle of your back off of the floor. Do not try to go all the way up.

To set your routine up you simply do a sample of as many as you possibly can. Whatever that amount is, take 80%. For example, your first attempt was a maximum of 10. Obviously when you multiply 10 by 80 per cent, you get 8. So your routine for the first week is to do 8 crunches 3 times with a one minute gap in between each set.

You should re assess your maximum each week.


I wish you well in building your six pack stomach, and be sure to stick with it and It won’t be long before you can show them off.
