Getting a six-pack is not hard. The reason so many people have been failing at it, is because they are following the advice of the online bodybuilding gurus, that claim they have the secret formula for the best looking abs ever. The only thing those gurus are doing is filling the internet with lies and myths.
“Ab exercises will get you visible abs”
“Eat one apple and one orange a day”
“Do mindless cardio”
It’s sad. It’s even more sad that there are thousands of people worldwide that believe that.
Remember this from me, the only way you are going to get visible abs is if you lose body fat. When you lower down your body fat percentage to 7-8 that is when you are going to start seeing your shaped abs.
Losing fat is not that hard if you know what you are doing. Here at Thebodybuildingblog101 I have already posted an article about losing fat. You can go ahead and check it out later.
Training your abs is also really important. If you don’t, you will not be able to see them even after you are bellow 7% body fat. But you cannot remove the belly fat just by simply doing some ab exercises. You will have to change-up your whole diet and lifestyle.I would advice you to train the whole core (your abs and obliques). It looks much more impressive. Exercises like the deadlift, squads, lunges, will help you train the core while training your legs at the same time. Remember the more muscles you engage the higher your metabolism goes, the higher it goes, the more fat you burn!
There are a couple of other pluses that you will get when you lose the belly fat. It has been proven that belly fat can cause diabetes, I am not joking. The more you have the higher the chance for you to get it. So not only will you look good, but you will also lead a nice and healthy life.
And another thing, never trust the advertisers. Those people only want your money, they don’t care if you are fit or not. The people who are selling the products on TV are bodybuilders/actors being there so they can make some extra money, don’t blame them, blame the huge companies that are pulling the strings.
