Gym Rumor Vs. Reality

exclusive fitness pro vs gym rumorGYM RUMOR: “If I train abs every day and do thousands of them I will get a 6 pack.”

REALITY: Everyone is born with “abs”. The only reason we cannot see them is for the simple fact that a layer of fat covers them. To get rid of the fat around the belly is to pay attention to your caloric intake and focus on the types of food that you are eating.

Remember, you cannot spot train for fat loss. We all wish it could be that easy. If it were that easy everyone that did “crunches” every day would have magnificent abs regardless of what they eat. Get on some kind of scheduled plan even before you start working out. Get your nutrition in check and with the right type of effort in the gym. Your abs will slowly start to show themselves as that layer of fat around your mid-section melts away. Stop going for those quick fixes and “fat-loss potions”. Nothing worth having comes easy.

FOCUS:

– Putting together a well-balanced meal plan.
– Increasing the intensity of your workouts.
– Every week you should be challenging yourself.
– Be consistent in your efforts.
