Many people seem to think that they can perform countless reps of
crunches and that will enable them to burn off belly fat and see that
6-pack of abs.
I’m here to tell you that theory is a myth.
Is is stictly my opinion that the only way to lose body fat and see
that elusive 6-pack is through a strict diet.
It is very simple to understand:
If you are eating lots of carbohydrates, dairy, junk food and then
expect to lose fat through high repetition training you’re soundly
Eating is the whole key here. If you eat clean and train then you will
drop the unwanted fat and see the hard earned muscle.
Here is an exact excerpt from my personal journal on my body (I take
notes on how I feel/look on days of different eating plans and
“Friday the 13th of july I got up had a dark coffee and then a protein
shake. After my workout I had another high calorie protein shake
followed and hour later with some eggs and turkey bacon.
I had another shake in mid afternoon then had my dinner. Dinner
consisted of lots of greens and lean steak. I then followed this plan
for saturday and sunday. By cutting out my normal weight gain foods
such as whole milk, breads, cheese and pasta I was not
bloated, not uncomfortably full and by sunday my abs were much more
visible. Sunday the 15th my abs were the most visible they have
been since before I started my weight gain diet back in april.”
I know my body better than anyone else so I can manipulate it
to respond the way I want it to.
Eating is the key and with a proper eating plan then the muscles will
show. If you have a huge layer of fat surrounding your body then you
will not see the muslce.
Granted you will look huge in a shirt but when the shirt comes off you
will look soft and smooth.
Don’t listen to all these “new breed” trainers and coaches who preach
this junk. The only way to target a stubborn area and burn off that fat
is through a leaning out eating plan and hard training. It does not
have to be done through cardivascualr training in the vain of
elipticals and treads. You can simply amp up the training with the
weights such as Barbell squats, deadlifts, cleans, overhead dumbbell
swings, sprawls with weights, rope climbing, pull-chinups, pullovers
with a barbell and dumbbell, heavy barbell shrugs done with heavy
weight and for high repetitions. One of my favorite barbell shrugging
and dumbbell swinging workouts is to load the barbell with 495lbs and
shrug it for 5 sets of 20 reps supersetted with heavy overhead dumbbell
swings for 20 reps. When I was in peak fighting shape back in 1998-2000
I would use a 125lbs dumbbell and get 5 sets of 20 repetitions.
Talk about a conditioning workout!
I was totally wiped out after one of those workouts.
That type of training with a leaning out plan such as my “Get Ripped
like The Machine” will give you the best chance for success of reducing
your bodyfat and seeing that all elusive 6-pack.
