How Do I Get A Six Pack?

Dec 16th 2015 at 12:25 AM

When it comes to physiotherapy, one of the most commonly asked questions has to do with a person's ability to obtain a six pack abdominal structure. There is a reason why you do not see a world populated with plentiful six pack abs, however. Even the most dedicated workout addicts struggle to produce the abdominal structure that they desire, which causes discouragement.

So how does one finally get their abs to look like the muscle men and women that you typically see on television and in the movies? Those who have already inquired about physiotherapy in Cambridge should read on in order to learn more about the following tips and hints. These six (what other number could it be?) tips will help whip those abs into fighting shape.

Work On Muscle Groups Simultaneously

Sure, those big boy dead lifts are what will lead to building the most muscle, but the problem is that the majority of people are too tired after these lifts to get in a great ab workout. While the major lifts should remain a priority, it is best to work out your abs, forearms and calves at the same time. By doing so, you are able to attack all of these groups with the same amount of intensity, instead of forcing yourself to work on abs once you are already tired from a workout.

Incorporate Ab Workouts At Home

The beauty of ab workouts is that they are so incredibly simple, they can be done just about anywhere. For example, if you are someone who likes to spend time at home watching television, you can incorporate ab workouts into your down time by doing ab workouts during commercial breaks. If you have an office with a door or are completely unconcerned about your co workers' opinions, you can also fit some in during the work day.

Exercise In Traffic

While you might be asking yourself how this is possible, the reality is that ab workouts in traffic are much easier than they may seem at first glance. All you need in order to work out your abs in traffic and develop that coveted is to flex the abs as hard as possible, while exhaling and crunching in a downward motion. Hold the motion to the count of five and repeat the process until you have arrived at your destination.

Stagger Your Sets

When you are at the gym and are also in between sets, instead of resting on the bench, take the opportunity to get a quick ab workout in while you are resting a certain muscle group. This method is especially helpful when you are working on smaller body parts and should be avoided with larger ones, as it can lead to injury.

Learn To Multi Task

Instead of forcing yourself to do ab workouts every day, incorporate ab workouts into other aspects of your personal regimen. Whether it is working on abs along with your calves and forearms or adding an ab workout to your cardio routine, there are numerous ways to add an ab workout, without carving out any additional time.

Give Your Six Pack Objectives Some Serious Thought

It is not enough to know what you want, you must also know the route that you will take to get there. Excessive focus on the aesthetic rewards of a six pack and lack of focus on the overall composition of the body can be dangerous. When you spend too much time on the bigger lifts and skimp on abs, this causes you to get less out of your workouts from an overall standpoint.
