Yep here it is - the working abs video and blog. A few folks have asked about this for some time with the idea that doing abs is going to get them visible abs versus a fat layered belly that most folks have. I am going to tell you right here that you will not get a visible 6 pack abs just from doing ANY abs exercises. I have talked on video and written about this before and the short version is 'abs are made in the kitchen.' So don't message me countless times asking about ab workouts and if they will get you a visible 6 pack abs. THEY DON'T!
Yes they will strengthen your abs and then therefore strengthen and protect your lower back muscles too. And that is a great thing for all you folks out there with back problems. SO your question now might be , 'How much should I train abs?' Well the short version of this is once a week like you do all your other body parts. Can you do it more? Yes you can but what is your objective to doing it more? Do you think doing ab exercises everyday or every other day is going to make it so all of your fat will miraculously disappear and you will have visible abs? If that is what you think, and by the way I KNOW many of you do think that, the answer is NO WAY! It is NOT POSSIBLE, physically, for you to do that.
And here is why I firmly believe that folks NEED to be educated on HOW their bodies actually work. Like how do you actually shrink body-fat? YES shrink because you NEVER lose your fat cells once you have them. You only shrink them. Is it by doing crunches? Do any ab workouts? NOOOO Yes putting on muscle which is a calorie burning machine helps you shrink fat cells but really how big can your ab muscles get? Not to big especially if you compare ab muscles with your quads, glutes, back, chest muscles.
Mostly visible abs come down to what you are feeding your body. Is it quality food as God made it? You know, unprocessed foods that you eat in their natural form. As they came off the tree, out of the ground, from the plant or from their mother. Food that man has had limited messing with. Eat this quality food through out your days, weight train and do some cardio and OVER TIME ( and how long will depend on HOW much fat you have to lose) you will slowly peel off the layers of fat till one day, yes one day, you will SEE with your own eyes you abdominal muscles.
Of course, you can't quit before then or you may NEVER see those abs. Yep if you quit or if you stop eating health, quality food through out the days and weight train and cardio regularly then hmmmmm you get the picture. So when it comes to seeing your abs the KEY is to continue on.... DON'T QUIT. Stay the course. RESOLVE to finish. Yes this will be my next blog tomorrow so stop back - RESOLVE. And if you LIKED this post then write a COMMENT. Don't be shy, I want to hear from YOU!
God Bless YOU!
