Six pack coming soon ! Watch
The next most important thing after cardio is diet - limit saturated fats, eat lean meats and low GI carbs, i.e wholewheat pasta instead of normal pasta, brown rice instead of white rice, etc... Also alcohol/added sugar is seriously destructive of any 6 pack, but hey, we're only human
do cardio to get rid of fat overall. and build muscle. you can build loads of muscle and never see it if you have body fat percentage of over 12% or so
My advice is:
Don't eat as much at once. this may sound silly but gorging yourself doesn't help, especially on carbohydrate rich products. The reason behind this is because you are increasing your blood glucose levels. If these raise too much insulin is released which stores the excess glucose as glycogen or more importantly as fat. So eat in small amounts, I found 7 small meals gets me through the day.
Lift, the more muscle you have the more calories you burn as you have more cells that respire which require glucose, glucose can be gathered from sugars mainly but also proteins and fats.
Split your diet into around 30% carb 35 % protein 35% fats. Fat doesn't make you fat, however be wary of what meats you are eating, as too much red meat can cause high cholesterol levels in the blood. variety is the key to life
I'm still working on my six pack lost 3" off my waist since September and I got soooo much faster no word of a lie. Just be wary that you eat healthily and make sure you do some cardio as there is research saying that weight lifters put a lot of strain on their heart and as many do not do cardio it can cause heart problems.
Hope this helps
THANKS GUYS!! THE REASON IM DOING 8min is because I'm a student so Don't have a lot of time to spare! But now I will definitely watch on my eating
Half an hour working out is 2% of the day.
But still, better than nothing
I gave up after a year though because I am actually very lazy, but I am getting back into the swing of it again!
If you just want what I call a 'skin pack' (someone who is skinny and has a six pack) then you just gotta have a low diet intake, stay off those fatty foods and if you do eat a lot of carbs then burn them off.
Going for a real six pack then lower your fat intake and do a mixture of cardio training and core training, e.g. sit ups, crunchs, push ups and pull ups. Remeber if your going to work your stomach you want to do your back as well.
By doing cardio and core training with the correct diet will get you your six pack within a couple months
no idea why you got negative rep. you are absolutely right, diet is probably more important than anything; that being said, you must have the muscle to sustain a six-pack.
