Growing up, I was a always told, “If you want to get a six pack, you need to do a load of sit-ups and crunches”. What a load of crap!
That would never work for anybody, even with low body fat.
I used to look at guys with shredded abs and think they were just genetically gifted and I would have no chance of getting abs like those guys.
If only I knew back then what I know now, I would have given myself a huge kick up the arse!!
If your reading this and you’re think it’s impossible for you to get ripped abs, then let me tell you…
It’s only when I actually started working out at the gym and managed to build muscle in every area of my body, only then did I realize It was possible to get six pack abs.
If I had no problem building my upper body, then why should it be any different getting a shredded six pack?
If you can involve an equal amount of effort you put into getting a shredded core as you do with the rest of your body, then you’ll be well on your way to achieving your goal.
I learned how to burn fat and get ripped mostly through trial and error, just learning and apply different exercises to my routine.
A lot of the time I was frustrated when I didn’t see results, but I knew if I kept trying and worked hard I’d eventually succeed.
My Journey To Getting A Six Pack
I learned that, in order to get a six pack, I’d have to have very low body fat and in 2014, my body fat was around 15%. So my goal was to get my body fat percentage down to at least 10%.
HIIT Training For Fat Loss
So I went online and research the best cardio for fat loss and found HIIT (high intensity interval training) such as sprinting to be a very effective way to burn fat.
Now, I know I still haven’t gotten my sprint technique down right, but from my experience sprint intervals is an excellent way to burn body fat super fast with just eight to ten repetitions at high speed short intervals.
You might have a preferable exercise for burning fat, but short sprints have produced the best results for me.
That’s just going by my experience. Yours might be different.
Getting A Shredded Core
I did that for a few years and I definitely lost weight, which was great! But I also lost muscle mass, so I cut down on cardio a fair bit, then removed the bad carbs and sugars from my diet and doing more core exercises, which would result in getting the shredded v shaped abs I have today.
There are just 4 exercises that I’m going to teach you in this video and if you include them in your next ab workout routine, you should definitely see some noticeable improvements.
Check out the video below:
There are many other core exercises that I did not include in the video, but I’ll list below here:
- Hanging Leg Raises
- Weighted Leg Raises + Crunch
- Russian Twists
- Weighted Planks
- Weighted Oblique Extension
