If there’s one thing I hear more than anything, lets work on abs! I want a toned stomach!!!
Truth is a circuit training routine or high intensity cardio routine is going to do more for toning your stomach then 25 minutes of abdominal exercises.
A six pack requires two things.
Low body fat percentage
Toned abdominal muscles.
How this is done…
Sensible diet !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (So Important for anyone without a gifted metabolism)
Intense, muti joint strength trainin
Intense abdominal crunches
The most effective and quickest way to lower your body fat is through intense strength training.It increases your resting metabolic rate which increases your fat burning rate.
Focus on mutli joint routines that target major muscle groups such as back squats, back work and chest work.
High intensity intervals training can be done on equipment or outside and should be done 2-3 times per week. You want to push yourself to the max for about 30-60 seconds followed by a moderate recovery from 2-4 minutes. Repeat this for 20-30 minutes.
You only need to spend 5-10 minutes about 3 times per week on core exercises. Intense abdominal workouts will make the abs tight and firm. In my opinion the best abdominal exercises are one in which you aren’t using other body parts to achieve the exercise motion.
Nothing better than abdominal burn with some old fashion sit ups!!!
