Awesome Abs Work Out

“What’s the best abs work out?” A question that gets thrown about alot at my gym! In this article, I shall reveal what I think are some of the best exercises that target the abs. What you also need to know that even if you have a good workout routine, it won’t mean a thing without a good diet. By the end of this article, you’ll be on your way to getting a ripped six pack!

So what are the best abs work out exercises out there? Certainly not crunches or sit ups! People seem to think that because they can feel a slight burn after doing a certain amount of crunches, that they’ll get a great set of abs real quick. This is so wrong! The most important thing about getting visible abs is lowering body fat and burning the fat around your belly.

When you’re exercising, your body burns fat, pound by pound, from all over your body, not just from one certain area. This is why crunches aren’t very effective, as they’re not very intense and won’t burn body fat quick enough. A good abs work out will contain highly intense compound exercises. Compound exercises don’t just target one specific muscle group, but involve alot more of the body. As you’re working more muscles, you’ll be burning more fat and therefore seeing much quicker results!

Here are two proven, and very effective, abs work outs. The pull up is one of my personal favourites. This is a very easy exercise to perform as all you need is something to hoist yourself up with! To perform an effective pull up, just grab onto a bar overhead, and slowly pull yourself up. When you get your chin to the bar, slowly begin to lower yourself back down. Keep doing this until you can no longer perform a good rep. The second exercise is called the front squat. Similar to a normal squat, only this time, you rest the barbell under your neck, holding the barbell with crossed palms. Then perform as you would a normal squat. The reason why the barbell rest under your neck rather than your back is because this will target your abs much more!

Now you have knowledge of a proper abs work out, you need to improve your diet. Lowering body fat levels is crucial if you want to ever see your abs brilliantly defined. Cutting out the rubbish foods such as crisps and cakes is a must. Also, aim to eat foods that have a high protein content. Protein is considered the building blocks of gaining muscle, so is vital to make sure your getting enough protein in your diet.
