The Secret to Ripped Abs
We have all seen the many training programs online and off that promise to show you how to get ripped abs. The reality is no matter how good or bad these programs are there will be people who succeed and people who fail. There are people out there who have a great set of abs from training them every day, and there are those with a flat stomach who have never done a single sit-up in their life. The truth is, ripped abs aren’t only achieved by people who train them every day, you can have a washboard stomach too!
The one thing these two groups of people have in common is a low body fat percentage. It really is as simple as that, if you want to reveal those 6 pack abs you need to work on getting lean. You would be 90% of the way to getting ripped abs if all you did was focus on reducing your body fat though the right training and nutrition. Adding abs exercises into that mix will simply top that hard work off.
Now let’s talk numbers. If you truly want to get ripped abs then you need your body fat to be below 10%, if you’re a female than in the teens. The best way to track your progress is to have your body fat monitored on a regular basis. I would recommend getting your body fat tested by a professional every few weeks. For consistency and the most accurate results you should be doing it under the same conditions, like day of the week and time of day.
Trust me body fat tests can be greatly influenced by even the slightest changes in variables. Getting this done is an important step to being able to asses your progress and evaluate how your training program is working. Make it your priority to reduce your body fat percentage and get the ripped abs most people can only dream about.
