Who doesn’t want flat abs? Almost every single person in this world wants awe inspiring abs. Some people
even go through the extremes of completing 300 crunches each day. However, there is a lot more to achieving
the tightest midsection. It’s not all about countless repetitions and hours upon hours of exercise.
One of the steps towards a great midsection is healthy nutrition. A diet rich in natural and whole foods is a
great beginning. You will not achieve six pack abs by eating processed and calorie laden foods. A bad diet
along with 300 crunches daily will get you nowhere. Cardiovascular fitness is also important; try walking,
running, dancing, or any other type of cardio for 30 minutes at least 4 times a week. Another part of your
exercise regimen should be targeting your abdominals. This does not mean that you need to do 100 reps. The
abdominals are just like any other muscle so they don’t actually require an insane amount of reps. You wouldn’t
do 50 bicep curls so why do 50 crunches? 15 to 20 reps of three different moves should be enough. Do this at
least 4 times a week taking your time on each move and targeting the muscles the best you can. You will know
that you are doing the exercise properly when you can feel each and every rep in your abdominals.
These are three of the most important things to remember when trying to achieve flat abs. Of course the process can
be more difficult for those who are in their 30’s or 40’s but it is still attainable. By strengthening the abdominals
you will not only feel better about yourself but you will also strengthen your torso, improve your posture, decrease
lower back pain, and reduce the risk of injury. So stop overdoing the number of crunches and concentrate on all of
the important aspects of six-pack abs.
