How To Get 6-Pack ABS Even After Having Kids
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 a bunch of INFLAMMATORY FOODS out of my diet.
These are the foods that I talk about if you’ve downloaded my FREE 30 DAY MEAL PLAN CALENDAR... you should have received a pdf with the list of inflammatory foods.
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.
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 FIT MOM FOR LIFE 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 you to try.
Michelle Marie’s 6-Pack ABS Workouts
- 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 in the Quick Tone Workout Series inside of Fit Mom For Life , 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.
