In order to achieve the goal of 6 pack abs or just weight loss you need to know what you are doing with your eating habits and your exercise program. If you mess up either one of those, then you most likely won't get lean and won't see your 6 pack.
That is why I think knowledge is a key part of getting 6 pack abs. With the internet there are plenty of useful places to look.
I know exactly what you are thinking:
1. "Mike, how am I supposed to find something that works and isn't a scam?"
2. "Mike most of the sites on the internet want me to pay for an ebook!"
To find information that isn't a scam is actually pretty easy. Find sites that are written by well established trainers. If you find a blog, see how many followers there are and see if the trainer posts success stories.
A lot of the sites out there do want you to buy their ebooks. So how did I get around this? Most of those sites offer FREE email news letters. In these news letters the trainers usually give away some free tips. If you read and collect these newsletters you can obtain a lot of FREE information!
Now not all sites will work for you, that's why I will subscribe to the newsletters to see if the trainers basic techniques work. After all, you are the only person with your body and you need to find out what works for you. I did this with Craig's newsletter and then subscribed to Turbulence Training and it has worked out great so far.
For example look at the bodyweight workout I got off of Workoutmuse.com. I plan to do this for my next off-day workout:
Do 3-5 Circuits and take 1-2 minutes rest between circuits:
1. Burpees - 40 sec on, 20 sec off
2. Jump Squats -- 40 sec on, 20 sec off
3. Mountain Climbers- 40 sec on, 20 sec off
4. Rolling Pushups- 40 sec on, 20 sec off
5. Burpees- 40 sec on, 20 sec off
I am still subscribing to newsletters because I know that the body adapts pretty quickly and I am looking for a possible change of pace to Turbulence Training. When I do decide to purchase something I will review it here.
There is a lot of free information out there for you to help you reach your weight loss goal or even those 6 pack abs! You just need to sort through it and find out what works best for your body.
Most people still prefer to use the natural ways to lose weight and still stay fit and healthy. You might want to try sassy water. Sassy water might call to mind off tasting tap, or an incident involving a watermelon dropped from a second store balcony onto a full glass, (sorry Mom!) but it's a recipe for a drink. Combine water, slim peels of lemon and cucumber, zest of ginger (light amounts!) and leaves of mint. Leave it in the fridge overnight, and you've got a healthy alternative to soda, and a reason to reuse water bottles. This is one of the things advocated by the Flat Belly Diet, as a soda substitute. It'll keep you from giving cash advances to Pepsi if you stick to Sassy Water.
