The fact is that there are many men who dream of having a six pack. There are many reasons behind this necessity, but not many are actually life essential – either to impress other bodybuilders around you or use them to hook up more easily with a girl you like. Whichever way you look at it, it should not be something regarded as essential. But for those who do find this more than vital for their every day existence, here are some tips and steps which can speed up the entire six-pack process. However, always keep in mind that in order for the advice to be fully effective, you do need to mind your diet and the way you conduct all your physical activities, since one without the other will only lead to more disappointment than success.
Step 0 – Do consult your doctor prior to exercise programme onset
This is an extremely, if not vital, thing to take care of before hitting the gym. In order for you to avoid unwanted consequences, it is essential to consult your doctor and at least one expert regarding the programme that would best suit your needs, and that would not cause overstraining and disaster.
Step 1 – Supplements Aid
The most essential ones to be taken are minerals and multivitamins. These are essential because the regime that is to be followed for getting six packs is the one that will most certainly deprive your body of the above mentioned, i.e. those most vital nutritious substances. For example, to control sugar craving and boost metabolism function, chromium is one of the best. When having in mind overall health, then vitamin C and E supplements are the most beneficial ones. Other beneficial ones are creatine (protein), glutamine (amino acid), to mention the most important ones.
Step 2 – Work That Abs
When it comes to exercises that are most beneficial for your abs, there is just abundance to choose from. The most vital thing to pay attention to is work the abs minimum three times in the course of the week, and not less than 20 minutes per session. Also you need to pay close attention to the way you do these abs exercises, since the proper form must be followed. Sets of exercises are most effective when each is comprised of at least 15-20 repetitions.
Step 3 – Weight Training
This is one of, probably, the best and verified ways of increasing muscle and overall body mass at the same time. When having muscles in mind, important to know is that they require greater quantities of calories in order to function properly. This is directly related to the fact that the greater the number of muscles, the greater the quantity of calories will be burned by our body during those resting hours, and thus will be able to feed on much more fat located in the abdominal region. In order to gain as much from the weight lifting as possible, and thus get nicer and firmer abs, you need to do more repetitions using light weights in the beginning, and switching to heavy weights as you progress.
