Odds Tips For Flat Abs

Hey readers, I got another fitness entry for you to read. Check out these odd tips for flat abs I found while doing some searches for 'ab workouts' on the internet.

  1. The best interval training work-to-rest ratio for losing belly fat might be 1-to-1.5. In an Australian study, researchers found that doing intervals for 8 seconds followed by 12 seconds of rest resulted in significantly more belly fat burning than long slow cardio. Now I know that 8 seconds on and 12 seconds off sounds a little annoying (just try doing that on a machine), but the good news is that these researchers found that going for 24 seconds followed by a36 second rest works just as well for boosting fat burning hormones.
  2. Dr. Chris Mohr's #1 weird diet tip is... "Get almost all of your carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables."
  3. You need to be able to do a Plank exercise for 2 minutes. Dr. Stuart McGill, the world's leading expert on low back health, says in his book that a person with fit abs should be able to do a plank exercise for 2 minutes straight. If you can't do the plank for 2 minutes, then you need to lose bellyfat and you need to get a program that works your abs properly.
  4. New research shows that supersets training burns more caloriesthan traditional straight set resistance training.
  5. To see your abs, a man will need to be close to 10% fat and awoman will need to be at about 16% fat. Of course, the more muscle you have, the easier it will be too seeyour abs, so you'll still be able to see a 4-pack on muscular guyswhen they have 12-13% fat. But the bottom line is that you need to use the nutrition plan combined with the an ab workout to burnbelly fat to see your sexy abs.
BONUS Tip - A great way to work your abs harder than normal planks is the Stability Ball Plank. Research reported in Men's Health magazine reported this exercise tobe 30% harder on your abs than a regular plank.
