1000+ reps of daily ab work is an amazing feat of endurance, but that’s not how you get visible, 6-pack abs! Unfortunately, if your abs are covered up with a layer of fat, you will never see them even if you do 10,000 reps a day!
Personally, I only do about 15 minutes of ab work two times per week, with anywhere from two to four exercises for about 10-25 reps per exercise. Forget about thousands of reps of sit ups — it’s a waste of time. The reason my abs look the way they do is not from endless repetitions, but because I get my body fat down into the single digits with a highly specialized fat-burning diet program.
It’s a monumental error to think that 1,000 reps of ab work a day will make your abs finally “pop” when your diet is a disaster and that’s leading to fat storage. It’s not that ab exercises aren’t important. But all the ab exercises in the world won’t help as long as you still have body fat covering the muscles. You can’t “spot reduce” with abdominal exercise and YOU CAN’T SEE YOUR ABS THROUGH A LAYER OF BODY FAT!
If you have ignored your posture for long and are now willing to get back in correct one, here are some tips and exercises to help you get back your posture.
Did you know that staying hydrated is important to health? Staying hydrated throughout the day helps keep your body working the way it should!
Thirst is often the first alert that your body needs water, but don’t rely on it alone when you work out hard or in hot conditions—drink “proactively” whether you’re thirsty or not. Other symptoms of dehydration include dry mouth, swollen tongue, weakness, dizziness, confusion, sluggishness or fainting. Dehydration may also lead to muscle cramps in athletes—another important reason to stay hydrated during rigorous exercise.
