The Key Principles to Ab Training
A lot of people neglect their abs when it comes to training. Even the major bodybuilders think that diet is enough. However, just like you wouldn't neglect your chest you can't neglect your abs. You can't expect your biceps to look go if you don't do curls. You need train your abs at least one hard day per week, but usually two times a week is optimal. Make sure to do about 8 to 12 sets for your rectus abdominis and about 5 sets for your obliques.
Moreover, the more intense you are, the better results you will get with anything in life, and nothing holds more true to that than ab training. You ned to train to grow your abs, not just to tone them. You should stick within the 12-15 rep range scheme, making sure to increase the resistance like any other exercise from week to week.
Furthermore, remember to train at a slow, steady pace, focusing only on your abs and not working your hip flexors. Hold each contraction for one to two seconds and make sure to flex at the top of the ovement to get a peak contraction.
In addition, remember to train all parts of your abs including the upper abs, lower abs, inner abs, and obliques. However, the most importat part of ab training will be your diet. Your diet needs to be altered to lose fat. Eliminate all of the trans fats and simple carbs, minimize the saturated fats, and eat the right amount of proteins and carbs at the appropriate times of the day. Make sure to also do cardio either postworkout or first thing in the morning for a half hour consisiting of high intensity interval training.
Working out your abs will help you build up the muscular tissue in your abdominals. However, the only way to see ripped abs is if you remove the fatty tissue surrounding it. You need to be under 10% body fat in order to see a six-pack. That means that ab training really is a systemic process in terms of training your entire body, eating a healthy diet conducive to staying lean, and creating the proper anabolic hormonal environment within your body (increasing the production of testosterone and natural growth hormone). MP45 is a program designed exclusively by Muscle Prodigy that details an entire 45 day plan for you to remove that fatty tissue and have your abs looking the best they've ever looked.
