Still want those ABS??
To sculpt your Abs, you’ve got to take hold of your Diet and Cardio.
Sit ups and crunches will help flatten and tone your
abdominals (and strengthen the lower back) but all the crunches
in the world won’t burn BODYFAT to show off your six-pack.
This is what you need to know, Cardio alone will drop water weight
and a little fat but leave you with loose skin and smooth muscle
(not a very nice look for all those hard hours in the gym).
Water and fibrous fruits (apples) not only increase you metabolism
up to 30% but also control hunger to prevent overeating. If
you’ve got a powerful sweet tooth, a crisp juicy apple should do the
trick. Drinking water stokes the muscles to burn fat, and get rid of
Next, eat your veggies, GREENS GO, WHITE OH NO!!!!
White potatoes increase your body sugar and slows down your
metabolism, just like white sugar.
Last, shake up your cardio routine. Don’t just run on the treadmill,
Go uphill, don’t hold on to the treadmill and run at 40mph, run at
a good pace, slight incline and use your arms to run or walk. With
balance, this movement will increase your oxygen uptake
and burn fat.
Studies also show that after 45 mins. of intense cardio the
body no longer uses fat for energy. It will burn muscle, so
you’ve got to eat more protein to save your muscle and
not store fat. Hey, anything is possible!!! Just try it!!
