Ab Workouts

Learn How To Tone Up the Muffin Top and Lose the Beer Gut

Great ab workouts are a key ingredient in getting the midsection you want.  To get the right shape your abdominal muscles have to be toned and tight, not flabby and loose.  The other ingredient is keeping the fat content low over your entire body.  The best ab exercises in the world will not give you six pack abs on their own. 

You can have nice, strong ab muscles and still have a layer of fat between them and the skin.  As you can imagine, that detracts from the look since nobody sees the muscles behind the fat.  The good news is, after you lose some of the fat, there those muscles are!

To make your midsection look its best you need to tone the muscles with excellent ab exercises, and you also need to know a little bit about fat loss.  You need to know, for example, that there is no chance of an abdominal muscle showing until you lower the fat content of your whole body (not just fat around the midsection or "belly fat").

When advertisers say their diet, gadget, or pill "targets belly fat", they are targeting people who are only concerned about their belly fat.  For some reason that's the only fat on their body they see or all they choose to focus on.  In reality, stored fat is stored fat no matter where it resides.  When the body needs energy from fat, it burns fat.  It doesn't check which kind or where it is coming from.

Make a plan to combine these workouts with a fair amount of cardio and a healthy diet that you can live with.  That way you lose the fat from the whole body while you tone the muscles around your midsection.  Make a plan, stick with it, keep sticking with it, quit cheating (you know who you are), and then see results.
