Best Abdominal Exercises - Get Ripped Six Pack
Abs & A Flat Stomach
far the most common question out there is what is the best ab exercise
I can do to get a lean flat stomach with six pack abs. The answer
is a very surprising, none. When you are doing straight abdominal
exercises you aren't creating enough of a metabolic response to
burn enough calories to produce fat loss in order to get a lean
flat stomach. Basically you are strengthening your muscles underneath
the fat, but that alone will not work to produce a six pack of washboard
abs. Actually, sometimes it may even produce a bigger belly by making
the muscles larger underneath the fat, which will push the abdomen
out even further and will seem like you actually have a larger belly.
The best abdominal exercise for a flat stomach in fact is not an
abdominal exercise at all. You really need to be focusing your time
on getting rid of that fat around the abdominal region. You need
to work on removing the fat from the abdominal walls so you can
have the chance to show off the abdominal muscles below. Doing crunches
and sit-ups are simply a useless waste of time unless you already
have a very low body fat percentage.
So if these direct abdominal exercises are a waste of time, then
what are the best exercises for a flat lean stomach? This is a fantastic
start, because we have go to a key question. We need the best exercises
for a flat lean stomach. To produce fat loss, you need to do two
things, build muscle and burn calories. The best exercises to accomplish
this are multi-joint compound movement exercises. Doing these exercises
along with interval training exercises for cardio will be the best
way to produce results. Here is a list of the best multi-joint compound
exercises to include in your workouts:
Instead of focusing on your waistline, focus on building your entire
body. There is a theory out there called spot reduction. It is simply
a myth that has been made up by the fitness corporations to sell
gimmick machines and useless powders and pills. Remember, spot reducing
does NOT work. By working on your waist only, you will not burn
fat from your waist. You need to hit it from all angles and that
means basic compound exercises to build the muscle and interval
training cardio to burn the fat!
Fat loss is a genetically predetermined process. Men have the most
trouble with their waist and women with their butt and thighs. It
doesn't matter if you work 24 hours a day on those particular trouble
spots, you are going to lose fat from other areas instead.
Stop wasting your time working on situps, crunches or leg raises.
These will not produce the results you are looking for. Quickly
give up your diet pills or even worse, those terrible AB machines
that are on all the advertising channels. You need to focus your
efforts on high intensity full body work with multi-joint weight
training exercises and fat burning cardio workouts. Keep working
hard and eating right and that elusive six pack will arrive!
