How To Get 6-Pack ABS & A Workout
You want a FLAT BELLY& 6-Pack ABS?
Tired of trying diet and after diet and workout after workout and still……. no changes……..
The good news……..you don’t have to train your abs every day, you don’t have to spend hours and hours at the gym and you don’t have to starve yourself.
Your ABS are muscles like all the other ones in your body which need rest and recovery in order to get results. So, no need to train them every day! 2-3 times per week is more than enough.
The bad news………most people do too many of the wrong exercises which coupled with the wrong nutrition equal NON EXISTENT ABS……..FLAB!
After having 2 kids, I now have ABS. I have never had them before which is crazy that now after 2 kids I do.
The main thing I have done is take THESE 5 FOODS out of my diet.
So I have to make sure you are not eating one or more of foods on this list. Because if you are, it can be completely SABOTAGING your results. Yes, it can totally be true that you can be working your butt off at the gym 6 days a week, eating super healthy (as you think), but if you are eating one or more of these foods, you will NOT BE ABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT. The reason is because these foods though some may think are healthy or not so bad, are actually very inflammatory.
Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard if not impossible to burn fat. So in order to be able to burn fat so you can lose weight effectively, its crucial that you take these foods out of your diet.
This is so important and makes such a huge impact on your results that I decided to compile these foods into a PDF for you. So go to the following link where you can download this information for free. I also added a list of 5 Foods that are NECESSARY for you to include in your diet if you want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET TONED. Foods that you should eat daily!
I also took the liberty to share with you a short video of my favorite 5 ABS EXERCISES. The ones that have gotten me ABS after having 2 kids (daughter is 15 months) and I never had them before. Here is the link so you can download the PDF and get the VIDEO. Start applying it right now. Take those 5 foods out of your KITCHEN immediately! LINK TO PDF & VIDEO
I have also finally GAINED CONTROL OF MY EATING.
I have learned how to NOT EMOTIONALLY EAT, which you can read about here.
And I have learned what the right times to EAT CARBS are, which you can also read about in this post.
You know, you can still eat carbs and end up with a FLAT BELLY and ABS.
I do and I have tons and tons of clients that do too.
And actually, trying not to eat carbs can actually do more harm than good, see why here.
Isn’t it a relief to know that you can still eat, and not have to spend tons of hours at the gym to get the results you want?
I’m telling you, I do 3 weight training workouts and 1-2 25 minute cardio workouts per week and eat healthy and moderate and have gotten the best results ever.
That is what I teach my client in my BeFit Moms Program and that is why they get such great results.
It’s all about following a meal plan that will allow you to be consistent.
One that you will enjoy enough to be able to stick to it.
The same goes with your workouts.
If you don’t enjoy your workouts and you have to spend hours and hours a week doing workouts you don’t like, the chances of you sticking to it are close to none. And consistency is what will give you great results.
That is why my BeFit Moms get such great results.
The workouts are short and to the point, they can be done at home or the gym and the meal plans are freakin’ delicious and easy to make.
I’m telling you, if you can’t stick to it, don’t even try.
Keep searching until you find a meal plan and workout program that you can follow through on, that you can be consistent it.
Once you can take control over your food intake, then I do have ONE REALLY GREAT TIP.
And this is a tip for working your ABS.
And its pretty crazy because when I was going to a Fitness Institute to study fitness, kinesiology, physiology, exercise science, etc….. I was taught that doing weighted core exercises would just make your core muscles grow and you would get “bulky” from the abdomen… as in your belly would pop out and look “thicker”.
So for many many years, I stayed away from weighted ABS exercises for begin afraid of getting a THICKER belly.
But I decided to test it myself and HELLO…………. The results are actually amazing!
This is why you should always test things yourself.
Doing weighted ABS exercises actually will help you have more defined ABS, if you eat properly of course.
So go ahead and try some weighted ABS exercises.
There’s tons of EXERCISES for every body part in My YouTube Channel so make sure to check it out and hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on any of them.
Here is an ABS Workout for your to try.
Michelle Marie’s 6-Pack ABS Workout
- 90 Degree Leg Drops: Progression on Stability Ball or BOSU
- Reverse Oblique Crunches
- Stability Ball Plank with Rollouts
- Side Plank with Hip Lifts & 20 second Hold
Perform 2 sets of 10-20 repetitions in a circuit fashion with 60 seconds rest in between each circuit. Perform this workout no more than 3 times per week with at least one day of rest in between each workout.
Make sure to incorporate one exercise for each part of your CORE:
*Rectus Abdominis: Flexing the spine or lifting the pelvis
*Transverse Abdominis: Compressing the belly down or holding.
*Obliques: Side movements
- High repetitions are optimal
- 2-3 sets per workout are enough.
You can start your workouts with Core Circuits as a warm up or you can end with them or you can put them in as active rest. That is the beauty of creating workouts and changing them up all the time.
Actually, its crucial to change the workouts every 3-4 weeks so that you don’t plateau and continue to see results. That is why my ladies love my MMF Monthly Workouts , they don’t have to think about what exercises to do, how to put them together, what amount of repetitions is necessary for their desired goal and its fun to just get new workouts every month. Its like having a personal trainer (but way way cheaper) LOL.
