This is the biggest question I get from everyone. How do I get a 6-pack? Or just get rid of my “beer belly” or “muffin top”?
It is going to take some work and dedication, but it can be done. It is not too late!
- Eat Clean! The number one thing is to cut out the sugar! It’s not fat that makes you fat, but sugar. Sodas, sweets, juices, candy, alcohol, etc. are some of the obvious sugars. But if you eat too many carbs, like pasta, bread, chips, these will also be converted to sugar if they are not burned off. 80% of the time, try and eat clean!
- Exercise! This increases our metabolism and will help burn off the extra fat. The best form of exercise to do is high intensity workouts, which skyrocket your metabolism and burn calories up to 48 hours after you workout.
- Strength Training! Try and incorporate some type of weight training, along with your cardio workouts! This, too, will help gain lean muscle, which in return will keep your metabolism burning that fat!
- Do Core Exercises! Core exercises include working your abdominal area, as well as your back muscles. One of the best core exercises is holding a plank.
Hold the plank for at least 1 minute a total of 3-5 times. If it’s hard at first, work up to it. Start with 30 seconds and work your way up the minute.
