Are you looking for a simpler, straight forward way to get six-pack abs that does not involve joining a gym, signing up for a meal delivery membership, and committing to a complex, multi-step exercise program? While there are lots of things that have the potential to help you get six-pack abs, there are really only two things you need to know and do. And once you are on the right track, getting six-pack abs is a lot easier and quicker than you might think! Here’s how.
You may not realize it, but you already have abs. You just can’t see them because they are covered up. Sure, you can do 100 sit ups a day for a month, but until you lose some of your ab covering it won’t make any difference.
Losing ab covering is almost all about diet. Sure, cardio can also help, but most people already get enough cardio just living life. Spending an hour a day on an exercise bike, without changing your diet, will only make you tired. Cardio alone won’t work.
A good weight loss rule of thumb is that 80% of weight loss is achieved through diet and 20% is achieved through cardio. This is especially applicable to losing your ab covering. Simply put, abs are mostly made in the kitchen.
There are plenty of programs and approaches for adopting a diet that is conducive to your six-pack abs objectives. The trick is threefold.
Once you have soundly addressed thing #1, and only once you have addressed thing #1, then you can turn your attention to thing #2, work your abs. Toward that aim, there are countless exercises and routines that trainers advocate for developing your abs such as crunches, leg lifts, planks, pull-ups and chin-ups, and all kinds of variations of these exercises. They all work.
A highly recommended, simple, safe and effective exercise for getting six-pack abs are pull-ups. Pull-ups, chin-ups, and variations that involving leg lifts and knee raises strengthen your core and rapidly develop your abs. Best of all, they are safe on your body. Unlike sit-ups and crunches that place pressure and stress on your vertebrae and that can cause spinal injuries, straight pull-ups without swinging are an injury free exercise.
If you have never done pull-ups or have not done them for a very long time, then you will find it very challenging to do just one or two. And that’s okay. Actually, it’s quite good because you will immediately start to see improvement in your ability to increase the number that you can do.
There are two very helpful items that you will want to get. The first item is a Doorway Pull-up Bar. You can get a good, basic Doorway Pull-up Bar that is designed to fit in just about any of your doorways at home for as little as $12 and you can get a great Doorway Pull-up Bar with additional gripping positions and padded grips for $50. Just do a Google or Amazon search on Doorway Pull-up Bar and you will find lots of products.
The second very helpful item that you will want to get are 15-30 mmHg Compression Arm Sleeves. Wearing compression arm sleeves while you do your pull-up exercises will provide support, performance, and recovery to your arm muscles. Technically, this is achieved on account of the increased blood flow that the compression produces. But anyone who has done pull-ups knows that tired-tired arm feeling you get and how it only goes away after the blood in your arm starts to circulate. Compression arm sleeves enables your muscles to perform better and recover much quicker allowing you to get on with, and better enjoy, your reps and sets.
The Uvoider UV Compression Arm Sleeves More Support™ Series are ideal for pull-ups and come in two compression levels, 15-20 mmHg and 20-30 mmHg. The Uvoider UV Compression Arm Sleeves More Support™ Series come in four sizes (S, M, L, XL) and are priced at $17.99 for a pair of two sleeves.
Getting six-pack abs is much easier than most people think. You don’t need to lay on the floor and do hours of abdominal exercises and you don’t need to spend hours in cardio trying to burn off calories. Rather you just need to diet a bit so that the abs you already have can start to show and then you need to start your ab exercise routine. Toward that aim, invest just a few of your dollars in a Doorway Pull-up Bar and pair of compression arm sleeves. They will help you quickly get the results you want and have a better and more enjoyable experience.
