This is something that I tell over and over again, yet, people still think the same. I think it is set to deeply in the mind of all people. Since we are young we are always told to burn the fat with a set of crunches, when all we are doing is working the muscles.
Getting that six pack you want is not about making an ab exercise to burn fat. It is a matter of lowering your body fat to a minimum. The ab muscles are pretty easy to work and define. They don’t have to be too big, they just have to be defined, contrary to other muscles like the back or the arms.
Everyone can get great ab muscles with a little work and determination. This is the easy part. The hardest part is actually to get rid of the fat and make your metabolism improve. For this, you don’t have to over train your abs. So avoid training them all days of the weeks and doing thousands of repetitions.
Let me tell you again:
Lose the fat by eating a healthy diet and doing cardio training. Is that simple, yet difficult if you don’t have focus and determination. The fact here is that your abs are covered by fat and as long as you have that fat, you’ll never see them. Grab a book that has all the right combination of exercises, cardio and diet, or look on line for more information. But if you have to remember something, just remember that doing ab exercises won’t burn the fat off your body. Good luck!
