I would like to share with you a trick that will help you get your six pack in no time. Keep in mind that not a lot of people know about this and you may be the first from your friends.

As we all know there are time when you will have to eat more carbs and times when you will have to eat less carbs. Well lowering down your carb intake at night time will help you lose fat and you will see faster results in your ab area.

Eat Less Carbs At Night Time:

The reason is that at night time your metabolic rate is lower than ever. Meaning that you are not burning a lot of carbs. You are also not in an active mode, which means you are also not burning any calories.

Now this does not mean that you should start working out at night time (that is actually a bad idea). It only means to lower down the carb intake. If you eat 30g of carbs before bed, only the half of it is going to get used by your body. The other half is going to be saved as fat.

So if you are usually eating 30g of carbs, before bed eat only 10g-13g. You have got no idea how much this will help you to lose fat and get abs faster. When I was just starting out as a bodybuilder I did not know about this. After I lowered down the carb intake before bed, I started seeing faster results with my abs. The same happened with my students.

What kind of carbs:
There are two things you must remember about carbs before bed.
  1. They must be complex carbohydrates not simple carbs - You want the carbs to last you the whole night. 
  2. NO SUGAR. You must NOT eat anything that has sugar in it. That means no fruits and no sweets. You will have to get your carbs either from vegetables or from whole grained bread.
Honey before bed:
Some people say that eating honey before bed is actually going to help you lose fat and get abs. I have tried it and honestly It did not work. You will even gain more fat instead of losing it. The reason is that it has sugar and a lot of it. This will only slow down your fat loss and will destroy the chances of you getting a six pack.

If you are trying to get a six pack and trying to lose belly fat eating less carbs at night time will help you out a lot. The only sources of carbs MUST be vegetables and whole grained bread, NO SUGAR BEFORE BED. Follow these steps and you are going to get your six pack faster than ever.

Core Strength is NOT Washboard Six Pack Abs

Most people associate the core with the look of your abdominals. They believe that having a strong core is associated with the look of a washboard stomach or Six Pack Abs. In reality, there are 27 muscles that make up the core of your body. From pelvis and hip muscles on up, the core is an entire system. Only a few of the muscles are visible to the naked eye.
Core Strength is the foundation of a strong body. It is a major player in balance and injury prevention. Real core strength though is more than just the musculature and bones, ligaments, tendons, and joints that make up the physical system. Building real Core Strength comes from deep within. It is a foundational power and resilience that can only be fully recognized at times of hardship where we dig deep into our core and draw forth the power and strength that is usually buried inside of us. Some people call this internal fortitude. I just look at it as soul strength.
This article is simply to give you some practical ways of activating the physical while taking a look at the deeper sides of core strength.

Abs ball exercises

Would you like to get six pack abs but don’t think it’s possible? It is possible; it’s just a matter of doing the right types of exercise and eating right. Your ab muscles can be just as toned as anyone else’s if you do the right kind of exercise and stick to a healthy diet. If you look at different books, DVDs and exercise devices, you’ll see hundreds of different ab workouts all claiming that theirs is the only way to six pack abs. But great stomach muscle tone can actually be achieved by some simple exercises.\
Sit ups are often overlooked because they are so simple. It seems some people believe that exercise has to be complicated or newfangled in order to really work. But a plan including plain old, uncomplicated sit ups can be one of the best abs exercise routines you can do. It’s a good idea to do variations on a simple sit up, too. That way you’ll be using many different muscles in the torso area.
When you do sit ups, you should have your knees bent to eliminate unnecessary strain on your lower back. Holding your hands behind your head or neck will also help keep your abs working as you sit up, rather than you leading with your arms and putting the pressure to sit up on your back and shoulders. Twisting to the side (try touching your elbow to the opposite knee) helps your abs by working the muscles on the side of your waist, called the obliques.
 Ball exercises are a great way to work your ab muscles. Put yourself in a sit up position, but with your back on top of a stability ball. Put your hands behind your head or neck and do tiny sit ups known as crunches. Tighten your stomach muscles as you lift just slightly. The crunch, done on a ball or on the floor, gives those muscles a more intense workout. And while you’re on a stability ball you also have to balance yourself a bit, which brings tiny muscles all across your abs and your back into play.
You can also lie on the floor on your back, raise your legs a little and bend your knees, and push your feet out in an alternate motion, like you’re riding a bicycle. This is great for toning those lower ab muscles deep in your lower stomach. Use a band to add some resistance, and you’re well on your way to six pack abs.
While there may not be any one abs diet that guarantees you a washboard stomach, there are ways of eating that can give you that extra boost toward the body of your dreams. Some of the best diet tips include a focus on protein without many simple sugars and starches. Go for whole grains and good fats like polyunsaturated and monounsaturated. Combine that great diet with abs exercise a few days a week, and you’ll be surprised by how soon you’ll see muscle definition.

How to muscle gain and lose fat FAST

 Keys to getting a six pack: You can have the greatest, most muscular set of abs in the world, but if they are blanketed by a layer of body fat, who cares. In order to rid yourself of the extra body fat around your midsection, you need to incorporate effective cardio sessions into your fitness plan. You cannot spot-reduce the midsection by doing extra ab exercises like crunches or sit-ups. You first must burn off the body fat through proper cardio to properly define the area. Abdominal training by itself will not do much. Cardio needs to be intense enough to do the trick. Three to four sessions a week of intense jogging, running, the Stairmaster, the elliptical, jumping rope, or biking should be enough to get the process in gear. Swimming, hiking, and taking aerobics classes are beneficial as well. Nothing beats jogging or running. It is the most intense, efficient, and effective method of burning calories. If running outside hurts your joints, try running inside on a treadmill or outside on a dirt path. It definitely is easier on the body. Again, you NEED three to four intense cardio sessions a week to help create a calorie deficit and help rid the body of the fat that covers your abs. Proper Nutrition: Do not sabotage your results in the gym by giving yourself a passport to pig out. Ridding the body of fat once and for all is accomplished by proper nutrition more so than
