Hello peeps, surely, you are here to know how to get abs!
For you, it might feel like a million-dollar question: “How to get abs?” as everyone says that it is no child business, and it might also be a challenging task for you as you might have tried so hard to get your abs, but you still are unable to accomplish it.
And this has led you here, so don’t you worry as I will help you accomplish it. However, I will need consistency, hard work, patience and discipline from your side. If you are ready, then let’s begin!
Now, this is a very minute problem, and my answer to this is that you already have spectacular, amazing abs. However, the problem here is that fat which is layering over your amazing abs. Hence, let us change our problem from “how to get abs” to “how to get abs to show”.
Herein, we will be providing you with different tips on how you can proceed towards your goal of getting those spectacular six-pack abs of your to come to fore.
Tips to achieve the six-pack abs:
Here, we are going to be using a two-pronged strategy towards getting the abs, since just exercising the crap out of your body or starving yourself to death won’t get you abs.
- Healthy dietary practices:
It is important for a person wanting to get abs to balance his diet in a way that allows the body to increase metabolism, increase the consumption of fat and grow out new and stronger muscles. These three things are important because increase metabolism will not allow any new fat to accumulate, the increased consumption of fat will, consequently, decrease the fat layers that are hiding your abs, and growing out newer, stronger muscles is significant because abs are made because of the rectus abdominis muscle which is present in your core. Therefore, it is important to keep the following points in mind while planning out your diet:
Fill up on the protein: Protein is the most essential dietary supplement that you might need while making your abs as the muscles need protein for their growth.
Say no to processed food: Processed food or junk food, besides, being bad for health also increases the number of trans fats in our body, and since trans fats are industry produced fats, it harms our body a great deal, while putting our goal of getting abs in the backseat.
Stay hydrated: Water is one of the best things in the world as it increases your body’s metabolism, intoxicates our body and a much lesser-known fact about water is that it also burns that extra belly fat which you want to remove so badly. Moreover, it makes you feel as if your stomach is full and, consequently, doesn’t make you crave for that junk food in your kitchen cabinet (a little advice: stay away from that junk).
Increase your fibre intake: Fibre, just like dumbbells or any other exercising equipment for that matter, exercises your stomach internally and since exercising your stomach requires energy, the fat in your body is reduced. Besides this, the fibrous food also takes a long time to be consumed and assimilated properly in our body. Therefore, it keeps the belly full for a long time, helping us not go to that kitchen cabinet.
Cut out on the sugar: Sugar is one of the biggest fat increasing food, so you might want to cut that extra sugar in your coffee.
Cut refined carbs out of your life: I seriously mean it when I say that refined carbs are really, really bad for your help and especially for your health, although, they are really good for your fat. Instead, try to accommodate whole grains in your diet.
- Regular exercise and workout sessions:
Now that your dietary plan is all set to let us move to our second step towards building spectacular six-pack abs. Exercising is as important as having a healthy diet because while having a healthy diet will not allow you to grow anymore fat, it will not eliminate that accumulated fat from your body, which is where exercises come into play. Following are the points and exercises that you need to keep in mind while preparing your exercise chart:
Increase the proportion of cardio in your exercise set: Cardio is basically any exercise that increases your heart rate. It is good for your heart, and it is also pretty good for burning fat. Therefore, exercises like jumping jacks, butt kicks, running and swimming etc. can help you burn fat like nothing else.
Exercise every muscle of your body equally: Now, you might be wondering that if we want to get abs, then why should we exercise all the muscles and not just rectus abdominis muscle and the other muscles of our core. Here’s the catch, exercising every single muscle uses energy, and that energy comes from burning the fat. Thus, exercising the muscles in your body is directly proportional to burning your fat. Moreover, it will help you to strengthen your body equally while getting abs, that is a plus point right there for you.
Incorporate high-intensity interval training (HIIT) in your routine: HIIT is a form of exercise that constitutes intensive burst of activity in addition to small breaks in between so that our body can experience high heart rate and subsequently some lower ones. It has been proved that HIITs can burn fat faster than normal exercises. Also, try to do your exercises in circuits, that is, doing exercises that have an impact on different body parts and then repeating them, for instance, starting with squat, then going into crunches, then some shoulder and hand exercises, and subsequently, after a two-minute break, repeating all of them.
Lastly, I would like to conclude the article by focusing on the point that not everybody’s body is designed to grow out abs and so no matter how hard one tries to get them, it would be impossible to get them ( it has been scientifically proved). Therefore, be gentle on your body and try to accept it as it is. Moreover, always remember that your body strength and well-being are much more important than getting six-pack abs. However, it is always good to try to get the abs show and strive hard to achieve your goal. All the best!
