The Best Ab Exercises: The Top 5 Mistakes Most Guys Make

One of the many challenges men have is to decide what kind of workout they want to do to get a sexy six pack. One of the fears that many men suffer from is that they will work out for months on end and never see any results, or go back to the old way of doing things. So the question is, what are the best ab exercises for six pack abs?

The best way to explain this is to talk about what NOT to do. With that in mind, I’ll not talk to you about the top 5 mistakes most people make when they are trying to get ripped six pack abs, so you can save yourself the time and energy, by not making the same mistakes again.

Mistake #1: Imitating bad workouts you find on TV. This is a probable reason why you will not be able to burn the belly fat fast. Inexperienced people think that doing some simple workout, like they do on TV is the answer, because they have ripped abs and sexy bodies, and don’t know any better. What they don’t know is that most of the workouts on TV are ineffective and they actually got the abs working out the REAL way, and eating the RIGHT way.

And in fact, one of the WORST ab exercises you can do is the regular, repetitive crunch or sit-up. When you do this exercise you are not adding enough resistance to your stomach, and you are not burning belly fat efficiently either. (You should go behind the scenes and see them really work out! You’ll a totally different workout routine!)

Mistake #2: Trying to get ripped by only working out your abs. This is not the most effective way to burn belly fat! You want to keep a gradual increase in resistance and difficulty for your abs. That’s how you build size, which is what makes them come out from behind your belly fat.

So what ab exercises should I do? There are hundreds of exercises that are better for building abs. Some of them include doing a classic mountain climber, or doing the plank for 1 minute. You must also incorporate pull-ups and dumbbell squats. These exercises keep your metabolism high and will allow you to burn fat even after the exercise.

But the bottom line is that many, many people will need to do something different from what they are doing now in order to get the most out of their workout routine.

Mistake #3: Think that because you purchased some type of exercise machine will make you get ripped abs, just because you have it. The magis is not in the machine, the magic (if any) is in the workout done by YOU, regularly, on the machine, and eating right.

Mistake #4: Being weak minded. Thinking that you can get a six pack without working hard is a myth. It does require a fair amount of exercise and work. You cannot get a six pack by wishing or thinking about it. You actually have to RUN, do the PUSH-UPS and replace fast food with broccoli soup! But if you are able to do these things, you’ll start to see a ripped midesction in less than 12 weeks!

Mistake #5: Thinking the hardest exercises are the best ones. You don’t need to do some crazy, advanced, upside down workouts in order to get the ripped six pack abs you want. The best ab exercises are simple, effective and fun. Just do the normal ones, with the exception of crunches and sit-ups, they don’t work to well!

Hard ab exercises is a waste of time. They are frustrating, hard to do and often kill your motivation to continue, since you can’t do them properly. It’s about building strength and having good form, not winning the academy awards of crazy ab workouts.
