Last year I did an experiment. Being an impatient Ingrid I don’t like waiting very long for the things I want. ‘I want it now!’ ‘I wish it would hurry up!’ are some of my favourite phrases.
However I had decided that I wanted a six pack. No not the type you get from the off license or Tesco. Rock hard visible abdominal muscles.
I had decided that I wanted to get fit and this was my goal. Additionally I wanted to do it in 3 weeks. Yes 3 weeks!
Having not done a workout in years I knew it would be a challenge. However I did some research and I followed what I had learned to the letter and within two weeks I had a four pack and by the end of 3 weeks I had a visible six pack.
I am going to give you a quick guide of how to get those abs you’ve been dreaming of with a few simple steps. I was just short of ten stone when I started and 5’10 inches so relatively slim but not in shape by any stretch of the imagination.
Obtaining six pack abs in 3 weeks is a lot to do with focus as with most goals in life. You have to start by hyping yourself up and thinking about what it is you want.
I found a picture of Mel B (spice girls) who I thought had the most amazing stomach and I put it on my screen saver as motivation to what you can achieve with hard work. You might have a different method. But it’s whatever works for you.
The second thing you need to be prepared for I have just mentioned, it’s work. If you aren’t prepared to 食物包裝牌照 work you will not achieve!
Also you must believe that you can do it and are capable of it mindset is everything here no negative thoughts.
Sorry guys this is not an easy method remember we are talking about 3 weeks here. However as my late Gran used to say ‘There’s no such word as can’t’. You can if you put your mind to it!
Diet seems to be a dirty word these days but unfortunately diet is one of the key factors of obtaining 6 pack abs in 3 weeks. Any personal trainer will tell you six pack abs start in the kitchen.
And I’m not talking about any crazy fad, Atkins, Maple syrup, cabbage soup etc etc kind of diet. When I say diet I am talking about the things that we eat the way we eat and how meals are structured throughout the day because all these things play a role in the way our body holds and burns fat.
Fad diets are not sustainable. For one thing if you are barely eating any food you will always be hungry and are likely to snack. Many people snack on junk food cause it’s quick and easy to get hold of.
The first thing I did when I was beginning my mission/experiment was to ban all junk food from my diet and more importantly my house. No chocolate, no crisps, no fizzy drinks, no chips, no biscuits, no processed cheese, no processed meats.
Essentially if it’s not there you wont eat it! I suppose you’re thinking well what can I eat? A healthy diet. OK so it’s not rocket science but for many people understanding that we need a healthy diet is one thing but putting it into practice is something different altogether.
The best method is cut out all fats, so to clarify, that’s no full fat milk, swap it for half fat milk or semi skimmed, or skimmed if you can handle it, half fat milk is till packed full of calcium but without the fat. Buy half fat cheese not processed cheeses and margarine instead of butter.
Essentially we are trying to shift fat from our bodies and build muscle. Many body builders argue that diet is more important than training and I would agree with them. However for muscle building exercises are also essential.
