How to Get Six Packs in Just 4 Weeks – Tips

Its About Lowering Body Fat

Getting a six pack is all about lowering your body fat to the point where you can see the abdominal definition just under the skin. 80% of this is achieved by your diet.
All the sit ups in the world will not burn the fat around your middle, as targeted fat burning is something very difficult. Any excess fat around your belly will be covering your six pack..you probably have none, it’s just hiding! Luckily there are a few secrets that will help you uncover it.

Don’t overwork yourself:

Every movement you make is technically working your abs. Running works your abs, turning around works your abs, walking works your abs. Each and every physical activity generally affects the mid section one way or another (except isolation exercises). And if you train hard to get a six pack on it’s own, you are actually causing more trouble to your abs. Working your abdominals out at the end of a normal session every 2 days is more than enough for your abs to start building.

Work on your diet:

Working on your diet us crucial to burn off the unwanted belly fat. And you also have to make sure that the foods you eat don’t slow down your metabolism or add more fat to your body.
Stop eating junk foods and sugars NOW. There’s a price to pay for everything in the world. You don’t get something for nothing. And if you want to have a hot six pack that turns heads, you’ll have to give up on some of the sweeter things in life! Like we said, this is 80% diet. Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. Diet’s vary individual to individual, but you need to ensure overall that you are burning more calories that you are taking in.

Kick start your metabolism in the morning:

Having a good breakfast is very crucial to getting a flat belly. Make sure that you don’t starve or miss a single day of health breakfast, eat less during lunch and dinner. During your breakfast, make sure that you feast like a king, fuelling your body for the day ahead. Have a glass of fruit juice, such as apple or cranberry juice with your breakfast as the natural sugars will help you through the day. Apart from that, add some omega 3 fatty acids in the form of cod liver oil.

Do varied cardio exercises:

The most common cardio exercises are high rep weight lifting (great for getting abs showing), walking (steady state cardio) and jogging; however it is important to engage in other cardiovascular exercises, such as HIIT training. This type of training is short bursts of full effort cardio, followed by a short rest. You can do this on a treadmill, bike, or a rower and it’s sure to get your heart rate ramped up! By increasing your heart rate, your body will burn stored fat, even up to 24 hours after you’ve eft the gym! Adding in HIIT training 3 times a week will get you that 6 pack goal in 4 weeks! But again, REMEMBER DIET!

Be consistent:

Consistency is another crucial factor to get your abs to show in 4 weeks. If you aren’t consistent enough, you are not going to go anywhere! Consistency and moderation is really the key. Don’t miss a single day of your workout program or diet.
