The real secret behind getting six pack abs?
95% of you getting a six pack is going to be dialing in your nutrition.
People talk about eating healthy foods all the time. That's not what I'm talking about right now. What I'm talking about, is eating the right amount of calories and the correct ratio of macronutrients for your body.
Basically, what you need to do is eat less calories than you are expending. We've linked up our macro calculator for you that's gonna help you find out how much to eat. Check the youtube video in post for tips to use it.
Calculate your Macronutrient Intake
So, this works for just about everyone, men and women. I'm gonna do it for myself. I'm 26 years old. I'm a man, so I'm gonna click man, male. I weigh 185 pounds. I am 6'2 which is seventy four inches. I am highly active because, I'm exercising every single day and then some. My goal is to lose weight. I want to stay nice and lean, so I'm gonna go down here and click ‘calculate calories.’
But there's one more step.
I'm a guy, so I'm gonna click “high” for protein. I'm gonna calculate it again. If I was a woman I would calculate medium, this is for protein down here guys. So, if you're a woman, go medium, calculate it again and you'll see the protein/carb/fat ratio changes.
If you're a man, click high protein, calculate. There you go. You get your numbers down here. Total calories, carbohydrates, protein, and fats.
Once you have this, you can head over to a site like myfitnesspal.com and create an account. Then, on the daily, track your food intake. Whatever you're eating, just put it in there and make sure you're hitting the numbers that the calculator gave you. All right, guys? You can download the MyFitnessPal app for your phone. Super easy. That's it.
High Intensity Jump Rope Training
Nothing's gonna replace your effort, all right? Specifically, doing all out effort on jump rope run in place. Think about a sprinter for example. They have the ideal zen dude or dudette physique, nice and sculpted, lean but not bulky. Well, you can replicate this by doing jump rope run in place.
Next step, working out before you eat or as we call it, and as they call it in the scientific community, working out fasted. I haven't had anything to eat since last night, and I feel fast ...ed. Fasted. I feel fasted.
What does this mean?
It just means that you're working out before you eat your first meal. So, if you can, before eating, try to go get an intense jump rope workout in. When you're doing this, you're mobilizing stored fat and removing it from your body.
What happens when you remove fat from your body?
You reveal what's underneath, which is musculature in the abdominal region, also known as a six pack.
High Intensity Interval Training
When you do high intensity interval training, also known as HIIT, you are again mobilizing more fat in your body; both in that moment and then also for the rest of the day.
There's real a thing that happens called EPOC. You like all these acronyms? Basically, it means is that your resting metabolic rate increases, so for the rest of the day you're burning more calories than you would otherwise.
The goal with everything we're telling you is to make sure you're burning as many calories as possible because when you are, you are more likely to be in a calorie deficit that will help you lose more body fat.
So H-I-I-T or high intensity interval training is is going through periods of all out effort, for example, jumping rope as hard as you can or sprinting rope as hard as you can, followed by complete rest.
Rest. Rest. Rest.
This pattern helps you increase your resting metabolic rate, which means for the rest of the day, your body is burning more calories than it would otherwise.
