#1 MOST SUBSCRIBED TRAINER ON YOUTUBE
We all want ripped, shredded six pack abs. Not only are they one of the muscles that women are most attracted to, but they also give you the confidence and respect you deserve. So in this article I’m going to set the record straight and reveal the TRUTH about how you can lose your stubborn fat and get the abs you want.
But I want to ask you a quick question first: have you ever done sit-ups, crunches or other ab exercises thinking that they would burn the fat on your midsection and get you abs… but they’ve gotten you almost no results?
Man, maybe you’ve even gone as far as trying out
you saw when you couldn’t sleep, because you were hoping and praying that something would get you the abs you wanted.
And honestly, you are not alone… I made those mistakes too… and many more.
I actually struggled for quite a few years before I discovered the TRUTH about getting ripped six pack abs. (I wish someone would have shared the information I’m about to share with you, because I wasted a ton of TIME and MONEY on trying targeted fat loss ab exercises and workout gadgets that failed me.)
Here’s the worst thing about most ab exercises: when you do things like sit-ups for example, you get sore and “feel the burn” so you think that you are burning fat… but they DO NOT burn belly fat.
In order to reveal your abs, you have to shed the fat off first. It’s the one thing you must get rid of... but once you burn off that fat, your six pack will appear.
So that’s why guys can workout their abs for weeks but still have their stomach looking the same or even worse than it did before. So they did all of that work, but it burned no fat… and they weren’t any closer to seeing their six pack abs.
Yes, you might get sore or “feel the burn” when you do crunches and other traditional ab workouts, but it does nothing for burning fat...
So how do you get ripped six pack abs?
And don’t worry… you can get them fast if you know exactly what to do.
So here are my top 3 easy, yet proven techniques (#3 is my top SECRET WEAPON!) to get you the ripped body and six pack abs you’ve always wanted.
I KNOW that if you use this advice, you will be amazed at how quick and easy it can be the demolish stubborn “stomach fat” and own a set of rock hard six pack abs.
Let’s do this…
The key to getting rid of the fat around your stomach and the love handles area is to do fat burning exercises… not ab exercises. Yes, a lot of people think that if they just workout their abs, they will get a six pack. But the real way to get ripped abs is to get rid of the layer of flab that is covering them.
Here is one of my fat burning exercise routines… it’s called the M-100:
1. Stand with feet slightly inside shoulder width.
2. Squat down and place your hands firmly on the floor just outside shoulder width.
3. Thrust your feet behind you and assume the push-up position.
4. Bring your feet back underneath your torso.
5. Stand up straight.
1. Assume the push-up position with hands firmly on the ground shoulder width apart and feet slightly apart.
2. Bring one knee up to your chest while one foot remains on the ground.
3. Replace the foot back to its position and bring the other knee up to your chest.
1. Standing straight up with feet shoulder-width apart and pointed slightly out.
2. Squat down low enough to have your knee at a 90-degree angle while still being able to see your toes over your knees.
3. Explode upwards and land solidly back on your feet.
Repeat these exercises until you have done 100 reps total. You will end up doing 40 squat thrusts, 30 mountain climbers, and 30 squat jumps all together.
A lot of people think that going on a starvation diet or hardly eating anything is the best way to burn fat. But did you know that those diets actually ruin your ability to burn fat?
It’s true, when you cut your calories down a lot - you are telling your body to burn muscle off instead of fat. So not only will it make you look worse, but you are hurting your body’s ability to burn fat. Why? Well, when you lose muscle you look weak and scrawny… sometimes even “skinny fat.” And... muscle burns fat! It may even burn up to 50 calories per pound of muscle you add to your body while you’re working out. So overall, muscle helps you burn more calories so by limiting yourself to a starvation diet you are doing damage two ways:
1)You’re burning off your muscle when you starve yourself, so you look worse.
2)You’re burning less fat, because you lose muscle that burns calories.
So what should you do instead?
Eat more often.
Here are the rules you need to follow:
• Protein can be anything from chicken to fish. I love grilled tilapia with some soy sauce on it.
• The best type of carbs are complex carbs, like brown rice or oatmeal.
• All vegetables are full of fiber… not to mention it is impossible to get fat from them!
Doing this will not only ensure that your body burns more fat, but it will also help you to keep all of your hard earned muscle.
You want to get a ripped body and six pack abs, but you shouldn’t have to suffer and not enjoy the foods you like. So eat what you want about 20% of the time, but make sure you don’t eat double or triple the normal amount just because it’s a cheat meal.
Before I go into the Afterburn Effect, I have some crappy news for you…
If you’ve been doing long, slow cardio like jogging or using the elliptical... you have been slowing down your ability to get six pack abs because excercises like that increase this one stress hormone in your body called cortisol. And cortisol causes rapid fat production which makes it extremely difficult for you to get rid of stubborn stomach fat.
That’s why no matter how much cardio you do, you will stop seeing results… or end up looking even worse than when you started because you increased your cortisol levels.
Bottom line: long, slow cardio will not help you burn fat.
Now here’s the good news: there is a scientifically proven way to burn the stubborn stomach fat that’s covering your abs - for up to 48 hours after your workout is over. (without increasing cortisol)
So the scientifically proven technique is also known as EPOC or Excess Post Oxygen Consumption. And not to worry, I won’t get all “sciencey” on you but let me explain what EPOC is… but let’s just call it the Afterburn Effect so that you don’t get confused.
To activate the Afterburn Effect you have to use specific exercises in the right order, with the right amount of rest… so you make your body burn more fat for up to 48 hours after your workout is over. Now once you’ve activated the Afterburn Effect you could be burning fat while you are driving in your car, watching TV, and even while you are sleeping. This will allow you to quickly get rid of all you stomach fat and finally reveal those ripped six pack abs fast.
Now on the NEXT PAGE, I’ll show you exactly how you can easily start activating the Afterburn Effect in every single workout... Because as soon as you know how to, you can enjoy in the fat-burning, and muscle building so that you can finally have the ripped body and six pack abs you’ve always wanted.
