What does it take to get a six pack?
Everyone seems to have one nowadays.
Except from the people you actually know.
In reality, most of them don’t go beyond the one-pack-mark, including you.
Despite that fact, everyone somehow seems to know how to get a six pack.
It doesn’t take you any more than 2 weeks, 7 days or 8 minutes.
And it’s bullshit.
The six pack is the mark of a serious bar brother, and you are dying to join the six pack club.
So you tried all those easy and convenient six-pack plans.
You have been sitting in front of the tv with your abtronic on for hours and hours.
But something just doesn’t seem to work and you don’t know why.
You just know that all those quick fixes have left you with everything except a 6 pack.
It’s because you’ve been blinded by unrealistic short term results.
That’s why these 6 angry six pack secrets are going to hurt your feelings.
The 6 Angry Sixpack Secrets That Will Hurt Your Feelings
You know that sometimes you need a kick in the ass.
Someone to push you.
Someone to hurt your delicate little feelings.
You might not like the harsh words at that moment.
But when you look back, you will know.
It was EXACTLY what you needed.
Secret 1. Stop Believing In Magic Pills
You probably got enticed by the word secret.
It has this magical marketing feel about it.
Just google six pack secret for once and you’ll see that it shows more than 6.000.000 results.
That’s a whole lot of secrets out there.
Somebody must be good at keeping them.
And somebody has to be the ‘sucker’ who keeps believing that there is that one magical answer out there.
Most six pack secrets aren’t secrets at all, it’s just a way to get you into a program.
Into a course or into some other weird thing they cooked up in their marketing scheme.
If it ends in a ‘secret or supplement’, you know they are bullshitting you 9 out of 10 times.
The only secret they don’t tell you, is that they don’t include the ‘you-really-need-to-work-your-ass-off’ part.
2. Get Into A Caloric Deficit And Stop Playing The Blame Game
Body fat and six packs don’t go together.
They are enemies.
To really start seeing those abs you need to drop down to around 10% body fat.
And has less to do with genetics than you want to make yourself believe.
You aren’t big boned.
You aren’t the ‘exceptional person’ who magically doesn’t burn fat even in a caloric restricted diet.
You are just eating too much, but you don’t know it.
The fitness models or body builders you see in the fancy magazines are usually at 5% or even lower.
Which is not really healthy.
And has a wide range of side effects such as lower testosterone, weakened immune system, bad temper, higher stress levels, longer recovery time and more…(study).
Most of the guys you see in those magazines or in fitness contests are completely dehydrated.
Tired and on the edge of breaking down.
You really don’t want to take it that far, unless you are preparing for some kind of competition.
What do you need to do?
Start managing your caloric intake. How much do you really eat?
Do you even know?
You need to start cutting away that fat and get into a calorie deficit if you want to start seeing that six pack.
Cut your calories within reasonable boundaries.
3. Hamburgers Are Not Going To Help
You need to start cutting those crappy meals, drinks and other stuff you have been putting into your body.
You know what they are, I don’t need to tell you.
The cool thing?
Stop cheating yourself into thinking that you deserve a six pack if you can’t even control your fork.
A hamburger isn’t going to get you anywhere closer to your goals.
Not only do processed foods hijack your brain, they send signals that actually make you eat more instead of less.
And you’ll end up having more cheat meals than you would like to.
Your entire day becomes a cheat meal to be completely honest.
But what should you eat?
Stick to 1 simple diet rule:
If your great-great-great grandfather wouldn’t be able to collect, kill or gather, you shouldn’t put it into your body.
Remember that it’s impossible to out train a bad diet for a longer period of time without health consequences.
Nobody has ever succeeded and neither will you.
4. Be Consistent With Your Cardio, But Don’t Make It Your Main Exercise
You probably hate it.
Running endlessly. Whether it’s in the morning or the evening.
It’s not going to get you a six pack as long as your diet isn’t it check.
But it can give you some extra room to play with your calories.
Don’t make cardio your main exercise for a six pack.
It’s inefficient and more muscle tissue is a MUCH bigger user of energy.
Don’t replace your strength workouts with cardio workouts, but you might want to add them every now and then.
So run, climb, crawl, cycle or jump till you drop every once in a while.
5. Kill Your Abs And Get Rid Of Flabs
You know no result will come by itself.
Getting a six pack is 100% dieting, 100% consistency and 100% working out.
They are both made on the kitchen and on the training ground.
That’s why having and getting a six pack will be your new 24 hour job.
A job that is usually underpaid.
And the workout part?
No excuses…no pain, no gain.
Pick one of the 6 pack ab routines depending on your level of skill and feel free to add your own variety or to experiment with different exercises.
Here are the 3 routines for beginners, intermediates and advanced.
And make sure that whenever you have done an ab routine, you also do lower back max out exercises such as the bridge or a plank.
If you don’t you will get some serious back pain, which will be a pain in the ass.
So this is only if you don’t want to be average.
6. Fast Your Fat Into Submission
You know I’m a strong proponent of fasting.
Especially when you combine it with some intense strength training.
Firstly your insulin is low and your testosterone levels are high when you wake up.
Now add a strong workout to that already beneficial state for your six pack and you have yourself a recipe for some ripped abs.
And it’s going to get you the 1 thing most people will never have.
A rock hard six pack.
Cycle to work, run to school, just make sure you get in those 20-30 essential minutes of fastened training.
It improves your insulin sensitivity which in return makes your body more effective at breaking down the glucose in your blood.
And which additionally improves appetite signaling.
Meaning you don’t build fat as fast, because you’ll be inclined to eat less.
By submitting your hormones you’ll stop being the fat-storing-non-ab-building system and transform in an ab-building-fat-burning system.
That’s exactly what you want.
