In other words, you need to train your abs not only to look good but to excel in your overall athletic performance and basic day-to-day functioning. Before we get to the actual ab workout, we must stress the importance of nutrition when embarking on your quest for the holy grail of midsections.
This again brings home the point about abs being made in the kitchen. If you need help calculating how many calories do I need to lose weight, click here. And, if you want some tips on structuring a fat loss diet, check out a comprehensive cutting guide here.
Reducing your intake of hyper-processed, ultra-refined foods like the majority of boxed goods in the grocery store can help you lose extra fat and gain six-pack abs. The reason for this is that during the refining process, foods lose much of their natural vitamin, mineral and fiber content. This leaves you with a food that might taste great but is ultimately void of much nutritional value.
In fact, one particularly interesting study noted that individuals who consume a higher amount of refined foods are more likely to have higher amounts of body fat compared to people who consumed more whole grains.
This data is backed by additional research which documented an association between the consumption of whole foods and lower body weight as well as reduced waist circumference. Therefore, the focus of your diet should be on whole food sources, including lean proteins, lots of fruits and veggies, along with whole grains and healthy fats.
These foods are rich in essential vitamins and minerals as well as water and fiber which help keep you feeling fuller longer and provide more stable blood sugar levels. The core is involved in just about any exercise that you perform to one degree or another. This means that you do not necessarily have to perform dedicated ab training everyday in order to strengthen, tone, and define your midsection.
For example, when you train exercises such as the squat, deadlift, and overhead press, your core musculature receives a great deal of stimulation due to the role it serves in stabilizing your body. This is also another one of the many reasons you should perform heavy compound exercises in your training program and not rely solely on machines and isolation exercises.
As such, you do not need to perform ab-specific exercises each day. The abs are just like every other muscle group. Perform each rep under control and hold the peak contraction for seconds. This eliminates any momentum swinging, kipping, etc. The abs are just like any other major muscle group of the body. So why is it that we so often only perform bodyweight exercises like sit-ups, crunches, and planks to train the midsection.
To get your ab muscles to grow, you need to do the same as you would with any other body part, challenge them with increased resistance, i. The quintessential ab workout advice is to do endless rounds of crunches. In reality, this is one of the most ineffective things you can do to build your abs, and research has proven as much.
To build an impressive six-pack you should use only most effective exercises that train all areas of your abdominal section, including your obliques. Research by Dr. Peter Francis notes that the typical everyday lifter cannot recruit only the upper or lower abdominal muscles when training their midsection. Translation -- focus on strengthening your entire core when training your abs, and stop trying to isolate the upper or lower abdominals.
Perform this routine times per week after your typical resistance-training workout of the day. For even more ab training tips, check out our Abs by Summer! The Complete Training Program. Yes, rigorous training and a tightly monitored diet are all you need to build a stunning midsection, but there are a few useful supplements that may help reduce the length of time it will take you to etch those abs. Primeval Labs has developed a comprehensive array of weight loss support supplements to help you shed fat, limit cravings, and reveal that six-pack faster than ever.
Just remember, no amount of supplementation will ever make up for poor diet and training habits, so commit to your goal and pursue it with relentless determination!
