What lady doesn’t want flat, firm abs and a sexy
What busy woman and mom doesn’t want to lose stomach fat and finally feel good wearing her swimsuit or tight
tank top and skinny jeans?
I can count on one hand the number of women I’ve trained who were totally satisfied with their stomachs, and
I’ve been training women for years and have logged thousands of personal training sessions.
But what does it take to get that flat, firm stomach? Does she really need to do
lots of crunches, buy the latest gizmo, follow some weird diet or go on mind-numbingly boring walks or jogs with
In short, no. I’m going to reveal to you the top 3 secrets to flat, firm abs for
ladies. Follow them and you will lose stomach fat and you will have that flat sexy tummy you want.
#1. Nutrition is Key.
You really can’t overlook nutrition. You’re probably saying to yourself “No kidding, smart guy.”, but I’m
serious. No workout will ever outperform a bad eating plan, no matter how tough the workout plan may be. You just
can’t look past your nutrition.
That doesn’t mean that you need to eat like a bird, nor does it mean you need to stick with some crazy fad diet
that your co-worker, sister, mom, or the other moms at the park told you about.
You need to eat sensibly and you need to eat more than you think. First you need to cut out all the processed
carbohydrates found in boxes and bags, yes that includes all those so-called “healthy” crackers and snacks. Most
are wolves in sheep’s clothing that will do nothing but make you gain fat, especially stomach fat.
You need to consume lots and lots of fruits and vegetables. You may have heard that fruits make you fat because
they’ve got too much sugar, but that’s a total lie. I’ve never known anyone who eats lots of fruit and gets fat.
Quite the contrary, everyone I know who eats lots of fresh fruit is very lean with very little body fat and the
majority of them have flat, firm stomachs that look awesome in tank-tops and swimsuits. So stick with fresh fruits
and veggies if you want to lose stomach fat and get that flat, firm stomach.
You also need to make sure you’re getting enough protein. That doesn’t mean you need to eat tons of meat,
though. You can get plenty of protein by consuming lots of healthy nuts and legumes like almonds, peanuts, black
and white beans, etc.
Whole-grains are also a good source of protein as is soy.
However if you’re going to get your protein from meat sources or dairy, just make sure it’s low in fat and if at
all possible organic.
#2. Switch from long steady-state boring cardio to interval training.
Long, steady state cardio is a favorite for ladies wanting to lose stomach
fat and get that firm, flat stomach. I always see women out on the sidewalks,
streets and bike trails with their friends walking for hours upon hours everyday hoping to get rid of their stomach
fat, yet most of them look the same today as they did a couple months ago.
That’s because long, steady state cardio as a means to lose stomach fat is a thing of the past, especially for a
busy woman like you.
There’s a better way and that better way is through interval training.
Doing interval training doesn’t mean you have to turn yourself into some kind of world-class sprinter or
“hardcore” athlete. It just means you have to step up your intensity every 60-90 seconds and work harder.
Say you like to jog for your cardio. That’s fine, just intermix bouts of running harder for a period of 30
seconds every 90 seconds and repeat that cycle about 6 times and you’re done…after your warm-up of course. If you
do it correctly, you’ll have worked your tail off and jacked your metabolism up for the rest of the day helping you
to lose stomach fat even while you’re not working out!
#3. Stop doing so many crunches and sit-ups!
Endless amounts of crunches, sit-ups, twists, leg lifts, etc. will do little to nothing when it comes to getting
rid of your tummy fat and getting that flat, firm stomach you’ve always wanted.
Actually they’ll do practically nothing, despite what the advertisements and so-called experts tell you.
To lose stomach fat and get that flat, firm tummy you have to burn the layer of
fat off your stomach and doing so means that you have to combine the first two tips I just gave you and limit the
number of crunches you do in favor of full-body workouts and full-body exercises.
You can’t spot reduce. When your body burns fat, it doesn’t just burn it from one spot, it burns it from
everywhere. So it should make sense that to burn the most fat you need to move the most muscle and crunches move
very little muscle.
You should instead stick to exercises like squats, lunges, push-ups, etc. Those exercises work lots of muscle,
which means they burn lots of calories and will have that layer of fat burned off your stomach in no time giving
you that firm sexy stomach you’ve always wanted.
So take my advice and follow those 3 tips and before you know it, you’ll be able to fit into that bikini, buy
those skinny jeans and wear that sexy tank top because you’ll be rid of your stomach fat and finally have that
firm and flat stomach.
