Bodybuilding Myths



Do you envy some people who have those nicely cut six pack abs? You might be doing intense workout crunches and sit ups but if you are not doing anything to get rid of the fats around your waist and stomach area then those abs would not show. The key to getting those great abs is to lose your fat and have a regular workout.

If you have a layer of fat on your tummy it is time to get rid of them. Get into cardio exercise routines because you really need to lose those fats. Cardio workouts are exercises that raise the level of your heart rate. Examples of cardio exercises are jogging, cycling, running and rowing. If you are at the gym you can use the treadmill or the stationary bike.

Have a good balanced diet. Since you are trying to lose those fats, you can have light and small dinner. Eating large meals at dinner will affect your goal to shed fat because you tend to be inactive after dinner. To offset this, you can eat a big breakfast meal. Make your breakfast the most important meal of the day and never skip breakfast.

Get into the bodybuilding routine and lift weights. Gaining muscles mean your body burns more calories even at rest. Without weight training you may lose your muscles and even your abs.

Switch your diet to whole grains. This will certainly help you in getting rid of your excess belly fat. If you are eating food rich in whole grain you are changing the glucose and insulin response in your body and this process helps in melting the fat and your body can burn them easily.

Now that you know how to eliminate belly fat you then have to develop your abs. One effective exercise you can do is intense crunches. For your crunches to be effective, never lift your entire back off the mat. Control your breathing and do not let the back of your head touch the mat. The crucial and most important movement is the initial flexing of your abs as you pull your shoulders up from the mat. You can also do crunches on stability balls to intensify and add variation to your workout

Another exercise you can do is the sit ups. It is important to always keep your back straight during sit ups. You can intensify this exercise by doing sit ups at an inclined bench. You can challenge yourself even more by holding weights on your chest and doing your sit ups.

Include in your routine squats and deadlifts. This is to train your entire core. The abs are not just for show, its main purpose is to work together with the back muscles to maintain a good and stabilized posture for your body.

There are still a number of exercises you can do to target the development of your abs. You can do the leg lifts, jackknife sit ups and static holds. Be sure to train your oblique muscles or the muscles at the side of your stomach. You can use twisting machines at the gym to target your oblique muscles.

By constant and intense workout combined with self discipline, you can achieve your goal of getting those amazing six pack abs that you've always wanted.
