What is the Best Exercise For 6 Pack Abs?
- By: Art Fielding
I bet you immediately think of crunches and sit ups when someone asks you about the best exercise for 6 pack abs. If I asked 100 people, I am sure that 95 of them would answer either sit ups or crunches. People think, if you want abs, do a bunch of sit ups. Many of the so called experts do not even have great abs with all of the time that they have for exercising. Do you think your results will be better?
Where I Started
Last year, I decided to start working out because I wanted a six pack. I had let myself go a little bit after college and it had been a while since I had seen my belt, if you know what I mean. Like anyone else, I started doing tons of sit ups, crunches, leg raises and any other ab exercise that I could find on YouTube. I could definitely feel my core getting stronger, but it seemed like my stomach was actually getting bigger. After all of that effort, it felt like six pack abs were farther away, not closer.
What I Found
While I was searching for the best exercise for 6 pack abs, I started learning about six pack exercises and why they don't work. I found that I could do sit ups and crunches forever and never see any results for all of the hard work. I found out that I needed most was to burn the fat covering my ab muscles. And the so called, "six pack workout" that I was doing did not help me with that at all. While I did burn a few calories, I was not getting the metabolic response that I needed to burn fat. I needed to eat right (nutrition is the most important aspect of getting a six pack), and do full body exercises that would burn the fat and work my ab muscles plenty in the process.
The key to success is to work your whole body and not simply doing the best exercise for a 6 pack. After all, I did it. And if I did it, you can definitely do it too.
