People often ask me ‘how do you get your abs to look like that?’
I 'diet' for it. By diet I mean my nutrition plan is created with the specific goal of reducing body fat.
You can NEVER out train a bad diet. If you want to be lean or have low body fat, you need to be very conscientious about what you eat. Unless you are one of those super blessed people with a raging metabolic rate, then… well, I hate you. (kidding!) I’m an endormorph. That means I put on muscles and fat easily and also have a hard time burning off the excess fat. Of course I am not lean and shredded all year round. This only happens when I am preparing for a contest which is what I’m not doing right now. My body needs a break from the extreme dieting for a contest,but I won’t go into that in this post.
The equation is THAT simple. Calories in versus calories out. Your muscles are created in such a way that it is ‘hiding’ beneath that layer of fat. Abs are muscles right? So in order for them to show, you need to strip your body of the unwanted fat.
I focus primarily on strength training.
I have a system which I follow for building strength and muscles. I eat according to my goals. That’s what all of us need to do. EAT and TRAIN for YOUR goals.
For the record, I do not do 100000000 crunches. That is just a waste of time. Your abs is just like any other muscle group. If you want to build them, you need to start training them to grow. My favorite ab exercise is doing weighted sit ups on a decline bench. SO PLEASE, I’m begging you, don’t buy into the myth that by doing a hell lot of crunches, it means that you’re gonna get a 6 pack.
The formula to getting lean is really SIMPLE. It’s the execution that is challenging. Not many people have the determination, desire and discipline to pull it through.
I never said that the journey was going to be easy. Yes the formula is easy. To actually do it is not. But it can be done.
Stop looking for short cuts and the easy way out. It doesn’t exist. If you know what you want, and you want it BAD enough, let nothing stand in your way. Everything in your life is a reflection of the choice that you made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.
