Many men and women want to develop six pack abs… but they just don’t know how long it is going to take. And for most, it is easier to go use a nutrition and diet plan if they only have to dedicate themselves for a few months. After all, no one wants to spend a full year to see the six pack reward for their hard work.
But first we must see if exposing visible abs in that short a time period is even possible.
Here Is The Good News If You Want A Washboard Stomach
The good news is you really don’t have to build your abs with tons of ab directed exercises. So, say goodbye to hundreds of crunches and other ab “isolating” exercises. The fact is, you probably already have the start of a six pack under the abdominal fat.
It is really about exposing your cut abs with a correct nutrition and exercise plan.
Let See If You Are In Striking Distance To Expose Your Abs
A good fat loss workout and diet plan can eliminate around 2 pounds of fat a week safely. (It is actually possible to lose more than 2 pounds of fat with the right program). So a little math is in order. If you only need to lose 16 pounds of fat to expose your hidden abs… then it is possible to get a six pack in as little as 2 months.
Now if you are not in this category, don’t worry. All it means is you’ll either have to use a program that burns more than 2 pounds of fat a week, or it will just take you a little longer.
What To Look For In An Ab Exposing Workout
Since we don’t need to worry too much about “building” your abdominal muscles, we can concentrate on losing the fat covering them. So, what you need is a good fat loss workout.
Here are some things to look for to make sure you get results:
Look for full body workouts that use compound exercises. This is a more demanding workout than doing “isolation” exercises. And the more demanding the workout, the more calories you burn both during and after the workout.
The cardio portion of your workout should be as intense as possible. Don’t use long, slow aerobic exercise if you have the fitness to work harder. Again, the harder you work, the more fat burning goes on both during and after the workout.
Lastly, combine your fat burning workout with the right nutrition. While you may need to reduce your calorie intake some, don’t reduce it to the point that it hinders your nutritional needs to complete the workouts.
If you want to develop six pack abs and are in striking distance, you can get them in as little as 2 months. As a matter of fact, with the right workout and nutrition program, you can lose much more than 2 pounds a week, and reach your goals sooner.
