Forget all those hundred's of 'crunches' and sit-ups' everyday if you want to have great ab's you must change your ab's workout. There are 5 facts you must understand if you are ever going to lose your belly fat and get six pack ab's. 1. Many so-called "health foods" are actually cleverly disguised junk foods that actually stimulate you to gain more belly fat, yet the diet food marketing industry continues to lie to you so they can maximize their profits. 2. Ab exercises like crunches, sit-ups, and ab machines are the least effective method of getting flat six pack abs. 3. Boring repetitive cardio exercise routines are not the best way to lose body fat and uncover those six pack abs. 4. You don't need to waste your money on expensive "extreme fat burner" pills (that don't work) or other bogus supplements. A special class of natural foods is much more effective. 5. Ab belts, ab-rockers, ab-loungers, and other infomercial ab-gimmicks, they're all a complete waste of your time and money. Despite the misleading infomercials, the perfectly chiseled fitness models in the commercials did not get their perfect body by using that "ab contraption", they got their perfect body through real workouts and real nutrition strategies. If you really want the opposite sex to start noticing and complimenting you on your new chiseled body & rock-hard etched-out abs that have started emerging from beneath what used to be pure lard then you have to do something different from the millions of people who spend hours a day sweating it out in gyms with little to show for it. (Except a slimmed down wallet by paying for the monthly gym fee!) If you change your methods drastically then your body will finally change drastically! The truth is there is a program by a personal trainer called Mike Geary that will blow away all the myths surrounding the way you exercise. For example the squat is at the top of the heap (along with deadlifts) as one of the most effective overall exercises for stimulating body composition changes (muscle gain and fat loss). This is because exercises like squats and deadlifts use more muscle groups under a heavy load than almost any other weight bearing exercises known to man. Hence, these exercises stimulate the greatest hormonal responses (growth hormone, testosterone, etc.) of all exercises. In fact, university research studies have even proven that inclusion of squats into a training program increases upper body development, in addition to lower body development, even though upper body specific joint movements are not performed during the squat. Whether your goal is gaining muscle mass, losing body fat, building a strong and functional body, or improving athletic performance, the basic squat and deadlifts (and their variations) are the ultimate solution. If you don't believe me that squats and deadlifts are the basis for a lean and powerful body, then go ahead and join all of the other overweight people pumping away mindlessly for hours on boring cardio equipment. Couple this type of workout with a nutritious diet that not only will have you burning off that stubborn belly fat, but will also have you feeling full of energy every single day. If you don't already feel energetic and alive every single day, then you are missing out, because it is an awesome feeling!
