2 Weeks to an ABSolutely Amazing Core

Feb 11th 2014 at 8:15 PM

The good news is that you can significantly improve your abs (or any part of your body) in just two weeks. The bad news is that it doesn’t come without sacrifice, but you already knew that, right? Theodore Roosevelt said it best when he said, “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty…” We get it Teddy, no pain-no gain.

I never gave diet much thought, actually that’s a lie, every woman has given diet much thought! What I mean is that I never really took into account how a single meal could make me look significantly better or worse until I was talking to my good friend, nationally ranked figure competitor,

Tara Zito. She was describing how after her “cheat” meal she looks 3 months pregnant. If one meal could convert her perfect physique to second trimester roundness, then what effect is one meal having on me? The truth is a lot, especially if that meal is heavy with salt and carbohydrates.

Two weeks doesn’t feel like a ton of time but it’s 42-70 meals and 7 intense workouts! Think about this, if you train each body part once a week, it would take nearly 2 months to get 7 good workouts in. But if you want sculpted abs in a hurry, you can compress that 2 months into two weeks by training your abs every other day, following a strict diet plan, and eliminating bloat.

Phase 1: Eliminate the water weight by drinking more water, aiming to drink 64 ounces a day. That’s 8, 8-ounce glasses. Flavor your water with citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, or limes because the extra potassium will help with bloating. Try Skinny Mom’s Slimmed Down Detox Water for a healthy boost and great tasting drink!

Phase 2: You’ve all heard the saying, “abs are made in the kitchen”. Well, we’re here to tell you it’s true. You can exercise your abs from sun up till sun down, but if you aren’t eating the right foods for a flat tummy, you’re not going to see the results you want in the time you want them. Here is a meal plan for 3 weeks of perfect ab eating.

Phase 3: Sculpt. Yeah you heard me, sculpt your abs! Work ‘em hard and work ‘em often, but don’t make a mistake and train them every day. While some consider abdominals to be “endurance” muscles, they are actually very similar to the muscles in the rest of your body and need 72 hours to repair (48 minimally).

Use these 7 exercises for your 7 workouts. That’s 49 ab exercises in just two weeks!

Depending on your starting point, you may not be able to achieve a six-pack in just two weeks, but I promise you that you will see a positive change in your core, and most likely your whole body if you really concentrate on your abs for two straight weeks. How could you not?
