Here are a few a flat stomach tips I learned from Mike Geary (author of Truth About Abs):
The first & most important thing to get control of in order to lose your stomach fat & get a flat stomach is cleaning up your diet. Exercise is important, but your diet is king when it comes to losing body fat so that you can see your abs. A better diet needs to start from week one.
The second thing that works your stomach great the first 5 days, is to focus on the intensity of your workouts & focus on working the body as a whole in order to get the best metabolic response to lose that stubborn stomach fat.
For the third thing to get started with flattening your stomach in those first 5 days, let’s speak about actually training the stomach specifically. When it comes to training the stomach, in case you need actual results, I always recommend leaving out the crunches & situps for the most part. they are ok for people that are out of shape, but most people that already have some training under their belt need a much better stimulus to acivate their abs than crunches can provide. Crunches are one of the abs exercises that actually provide the least amount of resistance, & keep in mind that resistance is what develops & tones the muscles.
In order toÂ get lean, the workouts ought to have a high intensity, with short rest periods, working the largest muscle groups of the body, instead of trying to isolate specific miniscule muscles like the biceps, triceps, or calves. Getting a flat stomach in 5 days is a bit unrealilstic, but it is a great starting place to work from.
There’s a ton of great stomach exercises in the Truth about abs book, but one of THE highest resistance exercises for the abs, is hanging leg raises (but NOT the way you see most people at the gym doing them). The key to doing these & actually working the hell out of your abs is to curl your pelvis up as you raise your legs. Nobody ever does this ab exercise right. To be honest,Â all of people can’t do this at first, but they’re are some strategies in the book as to how to do these correctly.
