It isn’t easy to generate those sexy abs is it? Well 6 pack abs workout via crunches actually isn’t the correct way to develop them so we need to change up your strategy a little bit. Obviously you are motivated enough and dedicated to researching how YOU can achieve your 6 pack abs. So let’s make sure you get started on the right path and begin developing those abs how you should.

Again, the key isn’t to creating a 6 pack abs workout via crunches. Creating them is really just a simple science, yes it really is a science. A simple science at that, all you need to do in order to get a six pack abs is to eat right, and exercise correctly. Developing a strategy can be frustrating at times but will be very rewarding when you finally look into the mirror and see those abs you always dream of.

The first goal for obtaining your washboard 6 pack abs is your nutritional intake. This can be broken down into several different catagories for nutritional intake depending on the time of day. For instance, the meal you have after you just worked out needs to be orientated differently then the meal you eat at lunch or dinner. I’m going to start with the basics of an overall general diet and then go into the basics for meals before and after working out.

Stay away from things like hydrogenated oils, processed foods, and corn syrup. These are the three killers of any wanna be six pack developer. The sad part is that those three things play a very active role in most peoples everyday ‘diet’. If you are serious about getting the abs that you want then you need to be serious about the food that enters your body. These chemicals will lead directly to unhealthy circumstances like heart disease, heart attack, cancer and other degenerative diseases. Did I mention cancer? Yes, it is a proven fact that the consumption of those chemicals can and will produce cancer forming cells in your body, so AVOID them at all costs.

Another very important thing to look for when building your diet is to buy products that are as close to their original natural state as possible. Don’t eat fake products like peanut butter, butter, and other processed alternatives to the real thing. You may think that because it’s described as low fat or even fat free that you are doing yourself a favor. It is actually quite the opposite. These items are packed with harmful chemicals and preservatives that attempt to alleviate the item of the ‘fat’. Stick with the real thing and have a work out plan, it’s really as simple as that. When you use these fake oils to cook with the actual vitamins and minerals are lost because of the chemicals. Consider steamed vegetables for an example, use a real organic free range butter rather then the fake butter alternatives. The nutrition and vitamins are lost when you use the fake oils to cook with.

What you eat is what matters most, especially after your workout. After working out your body is in a catabolic state where your bodies muscle glycogen is depleted and as a result your cortisol levels rise. It’s time to help your body during this process and rejuvinate it. You need a meal that will break down and digest easily and that will replenish your muscles with glycogen to get your body back to the anabolic state. Focus on finding a meal that has a two to one ratio with twice the amount of carbohydrates to protein.

This will help create an insulin spike to allow your pancreas to begin shuttling nutrients to the muscle cells and help with the replenishment of the muscles. Keep in mind that this is only after meals and your general meals shouldn’t be focused around this type of two to one ratio. Rather your general meals should have sources of healthy fats. Fat slows down the absorption of the meal so that throughout your day your body has food digesting and helps replenish your muscles over time.
