Worst Way to Get a 6 Pack

Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Fitness

This sounds insane to me now, but I used to do 500 sit-ups per day.

Then I heard that sit-ups were bad for your back. That made sense since my back was starting to kill me. I was only in my early twenties so I figured I had to be doing something wrong.

So I switched to crunches. And did 500 of those per day.

Guess how my abs looked from all those sit-ups and crunches?

I couldn’t tell you. Because I couldn’t see them. There was just a smooth, soft, pasty white midsection. Not a line, indention or visible abdominal muscle to be found.

That’s because spot reduction is physically impossible. If it were you’d see tennis players with one arm way leaner than the other.

We all have a six-pack. It’s just hidden under a layer of fat. And all the crunches and sit-ups in the world do nothing to reveal it. You have to get lean if you want to see your six-pack this summer.

The best way to do that is with a combination of proper strength training and nutrition.

When you build muscle you burn more bodyfat all day, every day. Even while you’re sleeping. In fact, during sleep, fat is the body’s preferred energy source. The more muscle you have the more muscle you’ll burn while sleeping.

Don’t waste your time with endless sit-ups and long hours of boring, joint-wrecking cardio.

Get jacked with a scientifically advanced strength-training program. That’s how you’ll get your six-pack.
