Can You Crunch Your Way To Great Abs? : Lean Body Secrets

Lean Body Secrets :

1 - Do high intensity interval training. This works better for increasing your metabolism and losing fat than aerobic exercises/ slow cardio workouts.

2 - Do more core stabilization exercises such as planks and side planks. These exercises make the muscles of your trunk stronger which in turn help keep your spine and body stable. A stronger core will make you less prone to training injury and back pain.

If you don't have back pain issues, you could mix in conventional flexion ab exercises such as crunches and no-momentum sit-ups as well as rotational exercises such as Russian twists and cable woodchopper.
Also include hyper extensions in your routine to balance out your routine.

You actually could no abdominal training and still have a nice sixer, if you get lean enough. But by getting in some ab training, you could have your six pack show up in a more dramatic fashion.
The keys to "abs training" are balance, variety, not overdoing them and slowness.

In an interview (which can be downloaded in PDF format here), respected fat loss expert, natural bodybuilder and personal trainer, Tom Venuto, points to the importance of doing abdominal training slowly while squeezing the muscles.



If for example you do sit-ups rapidly, you reduce the quality of the muscle contraction because you are using momentum and not muscle action. Mr. Venuto also states that he does only 15 minutes of ab work, twice per week, from 2 - 4 exercises for about 10 - 25 reps each exercise.

3 - If you are overweight, reduce your calorie intake by around 15-20%. Avoid refined simple carbs such as cakes, sodas etc and eat more natural complex carbs such as vegetables, brown rice, beans etc.
Eat a source of complete lean protein such as egg whites and fish on a daily basis.

Keep total fats and saturated fats low. About 20% - 30% of total calorie consumption should be fat. But make sure it is the right kind of fats.

Replace saturated fats in your diet with foods high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids such as tuna, salmon, walnuts and flaxseeds.

4 - Drink more water especially if you are physically active. Consuming more water can help you feel more full and cut your appetite for unhealthy foods.

5 - Get adequate sleep. Aim for 7-8 hours per day. Lack of proper sleep can increase stress levels in your body and can make weight gain easier and weight loss more difficult.
