How Do I Get A Six Pack?

Can I Get a Six Pack? It’s a question asked by almost everybody who is just beginning a new muscle building or fitness regimen.

Can I Get a Six Pack?

It’s a question asked by almost everybody who is just beginning a new muscle building or fitness regimen.  How can I develop my abdominal muscles so they will be on display every time I wear my swimsuit at the beach or pool?  In other words: How can I get a six pack?

Most people believe that the answer depends on how many sit ups and crunches you are willing to do.  They think that six pack abs only come as the result of many hours spent in the gym doing abdominal strengthening exercises.

The real answer to this question, however, may shock you.  Yes you can get six pack abs.  You already have one.  In fact, everybody already has a six pack.  The muscles are already there, you just can’t see them.  The reason most people don’t appear to have six pack abs is because there is a layer of fat that covers the abdominal muscles that prevent them from being seen.
So the only real way to get six pack abs is to reduce your body fat to the point where your belly is flat enough to show the muscles underneath.   Sure crunches and sit ups will help you build and strengthen your abdomen, so you should keep doing them.  But you also need to spend time doing cardio workouts to burn fat, and you need to eat a proper diet to help keep yourself lean.

So How Do I Get A Six Pack?

Just remember to do the three things necessary: cardio, resistance training and proper diet.  Have the motivation and discipline to stick with it.


You should do your cardio exercises three times a week at a minimum, and try to do at least 30 minutes at a time.  It doesn’t matter if you prefer the treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical machine, or if you would rather take a long jog outdoors or ride your bike in a park.  You just need to get out there and do it.

If you combine anaerobic exercise with your aerobic exercise, you will get a much more intensive workout.  This will help your body burn fat for hours after your workout is over.

Resistance Training

Crunches are pretty much the standard exercise for building up your six pack.  These exercises are not much fun.  I don’t know anyone who really enjoys them.

The good news, however, is that you can do your crunches almost anywhere at any time during the day.  You can unroll your exercise mat out in front of the television and work your abs while watching morning shows, evening news or even late-night talk shows.

There are some abs exercises that you can only do in the gym.  These exercises require some equipment like a pulley machine or a roman chair.  Once you start to get into a routing, you can move on to the best abs workout.


The diet is where you really have to be disciplined.  You can’t continue to eat large amounts of pizza, pasta and junk food.  Lean meats and fruits and vegetables are the mainstays for those who desire six pack abs.

You want to reduce or eliminate your consumption of soft drinks as well.  That high-fructose corn syrup will derail all of your hopes of ever achieving a six pack.


The fourth key to getting a six pack is motivation.  Anyone can eat healthy for a week or two, or make it to the gym for a month or so.  But after a while, it becomes so easy to go back to your old eating habits, or skip a workout session.

The best motivation for many people is to have a goal and write it down.  For example, you can write down a goal like ‟I want a six pack to show off at the beach this June.”

Once you write down the goal you can post it someplace where you will see it every day.  Good locations are on your refrigerator or the bathroom mirror.  If you are reminded of your goals every day, it becomes much easier to take the necessary steps to achieve them.

Yes You Can Get a Six Pack

Now that you know that you already have a six pack, and have learned the steps you need to take to show off your six pack, it is only a matter of time before you have six pack abs.

I run for my aerobic exercise. You can run, walk, dance; whatever you prefer. Just be certain to do aerobics at least 3 – 4 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes each workout. If you are using HIIT or something on that order, obviously you will be spending less time getting in your aerobics.
