Do you know the secret to a killer ab workout? The secret is you just have to do it. Creating killer abs is about the work you put in for the results you want. There are no shortcuts to sculpting those 6-pack abs. The problem is there is too much hype out there on the best way to get a set of killer abs. We are bombarded daily by TV commercials showcasing the latest piece of ab exercise equipment or miracle pill that will mold our bodies to look just like the models with the firm toned bodies they use to sale the stuff. We see it everyday, some excited loud talking exercise “guru” trying to sale the latest ab blasting device that will give you a set of abs just like those good looking fitness models using the equipment in the background. And you can get those nice abs if you use that device 3 days a week, 20 minutes a day. Now the first thing you have to ask yourself is, just how did those models get their bodies to look like that? It probably wasn’t by doing some pseudo-crunches on the ab blaster lounge or whatever they call it. They probably didn’t get that way by taking some sort of fat burning miracle supplement either. No, they got those bodies by working hard for them. A killer ab workout is a combination of exercise and diet and that’s what those TV commercials are leaving out. There is no one abdominal exercise that will give you the abs you want. Why? Because while ab exercises are good at strengthening the abdominal muscles they do very little to burn the fat that hides those muscles. If you want to have a set of killer abs you have to lower your overall body fat content too. There are three main things you must do in order to have a killer ab workout. • Core Strengthening Exercises – You must exercise and strengthen all your core muscles, not just your abs, if you want that firm toned midsection. In addition it is vitally important that you also exercise your major muscle groups which include your legs and back. These are the biggest muscles in your body and working them burns more calories then exercising just your abdominal muscles. • Cardio/Aerobic Training – The key to getting rid of fat is burning more calories than you take in. Aerobic training does just that. If you want to get rid of belly fat then get up off the couch and go for a walk, take a bike ride, or play some hoops. Find something you like to do and keep doing it. • Diet – This has nothing to do with the latest diet fad. This has everything to do with the nutritional value of the food you eat. Your body is a high performance machine. It needs protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and vitamins and minerals to function properly. A lean healthy diet will allow your body to metabolize its fat stores more efficiently. The key to having a killer set of abs is an exercise and diet plan that takes into account the entire body. You must remember that your body is a system and the better you take care of the entire system the better your health and fitness level will be. The road to killer abs involves total body workout and diet plan.
