Whether you are into bodybuilding to keep fit or to compete, it is important that along with sculpted biceps, triceps, thighs and calves, you also work towards a ripped 6 pack. By using these tips, you will be able to show off that ripped 6 pack along with the rest of your muscled body.
Allocate one day for your abs. Just as you allocate different days for different sets of muscles, remember to allocate at least one day in a week for your abs. Divide your workouts to include obliques, lower abs and upper abs. Make sure that you get the right amount of rest between sets so that you do not end up straining your abs or your spine.
Eat the right foods for your abs. Instead of simply gorging on high-fat foots to build up muscle, make sure to take expert advice on the right intake of proteins, carbohydrates and fats required for your body frame so as to turn all the accumulated fat on your stomach into rock-hard 6 pack abs. The right diet can help you change from a skinny or fat person into a muscled hunk with 6 pack abs.
Do specific exercises for abs. There are certain exercises that can specifically help you to build 6 pack abs. You can try out traditional crunches, air bicycling, leg raises while lying on an incline bench or hanging leg raises. These exercises will help develop your upper and lower abs and if done consistently then you should be able to spot definite results within a couple of weeks itself.
Avoid fancy gizmos and miracle diets. Instead of wasting valuable time, money and effort in buying and using any of the so-called ‘miracle’ gizmos or diets that promise you 6 pack abs within a few days itself, stick to time-tested and proven methods that might require more energy but will definitely reward you with genuine ripped 6 pack abs for life, and that too without any adverse side-effects.
