HOW TO SCULPT SEXY SIX PACK ABS




HOW TO SCULPT SEXY SIX PACK ABS


Training abs is essential for a sexy midsection.  There are several workouts that work fast, your body is your best source of resistance, you don’t need any fancy equipment to get cut abs.  It all comes down to training faithfully at least 5 days a week and eating a clean diet. 

If you train hard then do yourself a favor and eat a diet rich in protein, fresh veggies, fruits and good fats so you will be able to see your hard work pay off when you look in the mirror.


Here are a few of my favorite exercises that hit the lower and upper abdominals and obliques.  As you train focus your mind on the muscles you are working, it will aid in sculpting your desired six pack faster.  

As you continue to train your abs your midsection will become stronger and your endurance will increase as well. Always look at training as a gift. Enjoy your special time as you workout hard to create the body of your dreams.  

The exercises listed can be done in the comforts of your home. It takes about 20 minutes to do all exercises. Be sure to do it on an exercise mat or on carpet to protect your back.
