How to get ripped abs – 6 easy tips to a 6 pack!

There is no doubt about it a good six-pack is hard to beat. Is it really too early to be thinking about Summer 2016?

  1. Vitamin C

People who take 500mg’s of Vitamin C daily burn 39% more fat than those who consume less than 100mg’s a day! Arizona State University have conducted studies that show that low levels of Vitamin C impede your body’s ability to use fat as energy.

  1. Don’t under-estimate your abs…

Abs are serious muscles. They are some of the strongest muscles in your body. Once you are in a routine at the gym and feeling good use weights to heighten the load. Your body weight may well not be enough. (sourced TheThirdSpace.com)

  1. Save the best until last!

Leave your ab workout until the end. You use them in most exercises you do so don’t hinder the rest of your workout by doing them first. Save until the end and then you know you can go for it!

  1. HIIT it up

Use HIIT classes to help you drop weight off. Too many people sit for hours doing crunch after crunch and don’t understand why they aren’t getting great abs – trim fat with HIIT style workouts.

  1. Get engaged to your core

Whenever you are doing any exercise always consider engaging your core – many of us rely on skeletal support – get the core engaged!

  1. Eat your carbs after you workout.
