How to Get Ripped and Shredded 8 Pack Abs – The Simple Way

0 18

8 pack abs are the latest when it comes to a torn and shredded ab area. This is due to the rise of celebrities like Twilight star Taylor Lautner and number one fitness model Greg Plitt. With the rise of such celebrities, it was only natural that people’s desire to have a physique like hers would also increase, in this case the desire to have 8 pack abs.

You too can have 8 pack abs, so if your core is genetically structured to have 8 pack abs, the truth is that not all of us are meant to have 8 pack abs , some of us have 6 pack abs and some of us have 4 pack abs . Don’t let that discourage you, because no matter what your abs genetic makeup allows, I have ab training tips that will maximize your midsection look leaving you ripped and shredded

Physique similar to your on-screen heroes and role models.

Getting the abs of your dreams is something anyone can achieve if they put their mind to it. It’s all about following 3 basic rules or phases and each phase is an integral part of your overall success and each step will surely get you that well deserved 8 pack abs. So what are these phases you ask me, I won’t do them

don’t wait any longer…

Here are the 3 phases you need to go through or follow to get 8 pack abs:

stage 1

Get your diet in order, have a clean, healthy diet because nothing will set you back like not eating a healthy diet. Think of it this way: food is to you what the sun is to green plants, without which those plants cannot photosynthesize. You need to have protein in your diet and plenty of it, this will ensure you get maximum ab growth and this will help your muscles to recover. You will be able to get protein from a variety of natural food sources such as eggs, milk, beans, nuts, fish, meat, chicken and the list goes on (research other protein food sources).

Alternatively, if you’re looking to build not just abs but a full physique, your protein could come from taking supplements to meet your daily requirement of around one gram of protein per pound of body weight. Another thing to consider is to try to cut out meats with a lot of fat and use olive oil for cooking if you can afford it. Junk food is a no-no, if you are serious about getting abs try to avoid junk food or eat it once a week but compensate by working extra hard at the gym that day to get the extra calories to burn that you have set out to burn. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water and stop or limit alcohol consumption (drinking is a step backwards, especially beer). Try to stay away from sweets if you have a sweet tooth, as this is also a step backwards and will make it harder to reach your goal.

Level 2

This step includes the actual training; This is what I enjoy the most since I’m the type who likes to do sit-ups. During this step, you need to choose ab exercises that target your entire abdominal region to get the look of ripped and shredded abs. By your overall abdominal region, I mean your upper abs, lower abs, and obliques. At this point, it’s best to choose ab exercises that are easy yet offer a level of difficulty that will both carve and thicken your abs. Examples of this would be crunches, hanging leg raises, and oblique V-ups (extremely difficult to start with).

These aren’t the only effective ab exercises that target your entire abs, just good examples to show you what I mean by targeting your entire abs. I believe all ab exercises work, but they work differently, some require higher reps (that’s your crunches or your sit-ups), others require fewer reps and more sets (hanging leg raises could be combined into 20 reps and 4 sets with another abdominal exercise). Pick your favorite ab exercises and do them well until your abs hurt so bad you can’t laugh.

3rd and last stage

This is your fat burning phase to reveal all your hard work. This isn’t my favorite stage, but it’s necessary if you want to add the ripped and shredded abs to your 8-pack description. In this phase, you’ll do cardio to burn off the extra fat on your stomach and unveil the magic. There are many cardio exercises that can be categorized into steady-state cardio and high-intensity interval training.

I’ll admit my personal favorite is HIIT because it doesn’t take too much time and the intensity is fun, plus it increases your metabolic rate so you’re burning calories long after you’ve finished your workout, an example a HIIT exercise is do sprints between a few points, not continuously, hence the interval in the description. Regular, steady-pace cardio training is also popular in the form of jogging, and folks who use the stationary bike at the gym (although you could also do interval training on a bike) I find this option time-consuming and if you jog too long a distance you could also burn muscle, not just calories.

Please note that all three phases must be done together, but you could do phase one and two together and do phase 3 at a later date to reveal the finished product.
