Six pack abs make the perfect demonstration of someone’s fitness level and therefore, are not easy to get. Difficult, yes, but not impossible! Proper diet and a lot of exercise is the key to getting the perfect six pack abs.
First step towards getting the six packs is to have a flat stomach and nothing can flatten your tummy better than a strict diet control. Crunches and sit ups can give you the abs but so long as the layer of fat is on your abdomen, no one will notice that you have them. Do research on proper nutrition and diet. Having said it, we all know that vegetables and lean meat are perfect for men. Lower the intake of calories to the level below you need.
Keeping the diet in control, it is time that you get on the exercise ride. Exercise shapes up your body while the controlled diet rids you of the fat. Remember, you cannot achieve the results with either alone, it has to be both. Abs are the accentuated flat stomach. You need resistance to train your abs and as you do, you need to progressively increase the amount.
The key to getting six packs is giving the rest of your body muscles. Your muscles use a lot of calories which helps in burning fat so it is important that while you work to flatten your stomach, you increase the resistance exercise to add muscles and achieve overall fitness.
These two points are over overlooked. Men either exercise a lot and forget to keep their diet in check or diet without adding resistance exercise to their routine. Just remember, controlled diet and resistance exercise for at least 3 – 6 months are the two must-do for you.
