Getting 6 Pack Abs Fast

What do you think all famous movie stars and models share in common? The answer is six pack abs. A ripped core is often seen as the pinnacle of health and being in shape. If a person has defined abs, that person is usually considered to be in exceptional shape. I believe it has something to do with the fact that the abdominal area is the last place to lose body fat, so if a man is defined in that area he is probably in great shape overall. However going to the gym is not enough, probably less than 10% of gym goers actually have a defined mid section. The obstacle is that many people (including a lot of trainers) don’t undestand what it takes to have abs.

Will Working the Core Muscles Give You Great Abs?

Often times nowadays if you go to a gym, a lot of the focus will be on core exercises. Personal trainers have people doing all sorts of crazy exercises on exercise balls which supposedly forces the body to stabilize itself using “core muscles”. Solely working these muscles is supposed to get you 6 pack abs. I see personal trainers devoting close to 1/2 of the client’s time focusing on exercises which work the core. The funny thing is that I see people do this week in and week out and none of these people get any closer to getting six pack abs.

So how about a whole lot of crunches? Will that get me super abs? Do you want to learn how to get shredded?

Another common misguided belief pattern is to hit the abs ever single day. There are a lot of workouts which concentrate on the core muscles. Many people use various floor exercises such as crunches or sit-ups. People also use machines in their quest for six pack abs. Some say work the abs daily or 4-5 times per week. Some tell you to use high reps and no weight or heavy weight like every other muscle. I see tons of people do this week in and week out and guess what…very few of those people have six pack abs!

How about following a system from a guy who actually has great abs.

I have a very defined midsection year round, but it wasn’t always that way. I followed the above recommendations and failed to get that six pack look. In fact a back injury was actually the key to discovering what works and what doesn’t! Let me elaborate…I sustained a back injury 5 years ago and was unable to perform any crunch movement without pain. I was bummed out, because I had a vacation to Cancun planned 8 months later. I wanted to look great in a swimsuit and have firm six pack abs. I had to give up on working my abs directly for 8 full months! I accepted my fate that I would look out of shape. But something weird happened… I actually got the best abs of my life and I didn’t even do one single direct ab exercise!

My Approach to Getting Six Pack Abs.

Okay, since that time I haven’t worked abs directly at all and my midsection looks better than ever. Having amazing abs is a great deal about having a low body fat percentage and a small part about doing ab workouts. You see, all of us already have a nice six pack…it is just hidden under a layer of fat. I promise that if you drop your bodyfat to around ten percent or lower you will have great abs. Stop doing all those ab workouts and replace it with cardio workouts. Do you want a great 6 pack? Hit the Treadmill or the Elliptical Machine. Seriously, it the only way you will ever see those abs.
