Sculpting Specific Body Parts : Want That 6 pack abs?

Want That 6 pack abs? 

Then Read On...

Have you noticed that most people will never fail to include abdominal

muscle exercises in their routines and yet somehow or other, they can

never own that coveted 6 pack abs?

 

Have you been religiously doing your abdominal muscle exercises? Is your

abs showing to your satisfaction? No? Why?  Do you know that your

abdominal muscle is one of the easiest muscles to build but yet why is

it that most people have difficulty in developing that 6 pack abs?

 

Here is the truth. Those of you who are working out your abs regularly

do probably own that much sought after six pack. Yes, you do. The only

trouble is that your belly fat is covering them. Your abs will not show

up well if you have a body fat ratio of more than 12%.  The more fat you

burn off, the more defined your abs will be. You will own that rippling

washboard abs when your body fat is 10% or less. So if you have fat on

your belly, forget about abdominal exercises and burn off the fats

first.

 

There is another reason why people put in so much effort to develop

their abdominal muscle and yet their abs are not showing although they

have low body fat. Again, there is a simple explanation. They are doing

the wrong exercises and working out in bad form.

 

Let's take for example the most common abs exercises, the sit up and the

leg raisers. Everybody seem to be doing these two exercises not knowing

that these exercises really don't do much for their abs. Don't believe

me? Ok.try this. When you do your sit up or leg raisers, place your

palms on your hip on the area connecting to your  thigh and perform the

exercises. Tell me what did you feel? Ahhh..you are getting it. Those

muscles there are doing most of the work. Those are your hip flexor

muscles. Since your hip flexors are doing most of the work, how can you

develop your abs effectively?

 

So you say, from now on I will do crunches instead. Well, I have another

surprise for you.

Most people perform their crunches wrongly too. Think about it. Why is

the exercise called "crunch"? It is because you must squeeze your abs so

are that you are crunching them. In order to squeeze your abs hard, you

have to curl up like a prawn and breath out all the air in your lungs at

the top position and then squeeeeeeeze the muscles so hard that you feel

a burn. That will take a few seconds to crunch out all the air before

you lower to the beginning position again. You can't do this effectively

if you just go up, down, up down, up down rhythmetically. So, if you

have been doing hundreds of crunches everyday with minimal result, now

you know why. In fact, it is almost impossible for the average guy to do

tens of properly performed crunches and not to say hundreds of them. The

same squeezing principle applies to other abs exercises.

 

Ok..now that you  know why your abs are not showing up well, so get on

with burning your fats and perform your workout in correct form. You

will then see your 6 pack abdominal muscle in no time.
