It’s not just impressive on the beach (although it’s certainly that) but a sign of a strong, functional body. Follow this guide for eight weeks to earn yours. In this definitive guide to getting a six-pack, we’ll share the five commandments to follow if you want a solid six-pack, a training plan that replaces sit-ups with spine-healthy core builders, a seven-day meal plan to help fuel your efforts, and tips to help keep your metabolism firing on all cylinders, all day

How To Get A Six-Pack

1. Train with “anti” movements

Your core does its best work when resisting movement, preventing you falling over when the train brakes. Modern core training focuses on such “anti” movements.

2. Work the whole unit

Your abs aren’t everything. Working your obliques, transverse abdominis and lower back will prevent imbalances and, as a side bonus, will let you lift bigger.

3. Use standing up exercises to hit your core from all angles

Real-life exertion rarely happens when you’re lying down, so the majority of moves in this plan don’t either. You’ll get used to using your core from all angles.

4. Eat better, not less

When it comes to food, calories are less important than quality. In this guide, we’ll show you how to eat for abs without starving yourself.

5. Reduce stress

The stress hormone cortisol causes you to store belly fat, so too much means you’ll never see your abs however hard you train. Eliminate it and see results faster.

Six-Pack Exercises

Windmill

0901wm-windmill-1441032989.jpg

Stand with your feet slightly apart, holding a kettlebell or heavy dumbbell overhead. Bend sideways at the hips, bringing one arm down your shin to keep your balance, keeping the dumbbell directly overhead with your arm locked. Stand up straight to finish the move. For more of a challenge, perform your windmills with an unloaded barbell.

Leg-elevated side plank

578104052-612x612.jpg

Get into a side plank with your weight supported on one hand or forearm and your feet stacked on top of each other (or both on the floor if that’s too difficult). Lift your top foot, keeping your body in a straight line, then lower to return to the start.

Three-point row

single-arm-dumbbell-row-3.jpg

The one-arm row works your obliques well, but taking away the bench is an abs-torcher. Start in the top press-up position with your feet wide and holding a dumbbell in each hand. Row one dumbbell up to your armpit, pause, then lower. Try to complete all the reps without the dumbbell touching the ground, then repeat on the other side.

One-arm rack press-up

The Rocky-style one-arm press-up will work your obliques if you’ve got the strength to do it: if not, do this version. Start with your feet apart and one hand on a bench, table or barbell. Lower until you touch the surface with your chest, then press back up. Do all your reps on one side, then switch.

TRX Tuck Split

1412453546.jpg

Get into a plank with your feet in the TRX loops and your hands on the floor. Bring your knees towards your chest, pause for a second, then lower and bring your feet out to the sides.

TRX Pike

With your feet in the TRX loops and your hands (still) on the floor, bend at the hips to bring your feet towards your head until you’re in an inverted V-shape. Pause for a second at the top, then lower.

leg raise

459.jpg

Hang from a bar with your arms bent at 90°. Raise your legs – knees bent if necessary, but preferably straight – pause at the top, then lower.

Plank walk-up

Start in the top press-up position in front of a box, bench or sofa, then “walk” one hand at a time up on to it, bracing your core. Walk back down, then start the next rep with the other hand. Want some
extra chest work? Add a press-up between each rep.

Six-Pack Training Plan

How should you train your abs? Simple: tackle one plane of motion a day. Add these mini-workouts to your existing routine, or do them separately.

Exercises designated 1A and 1B should be done as supersets. Complete all reps of 1A, then move straight on to 1B with minimal rest. Rest as indicated after completing all the reps of 1B, then start again.

Day 1: Anti-Extension

With these moves, you resist extension at your lumbar spine and build strength in your lower back.

1A Miyagi

Resistance-Band-Chest-Fly-250x156.jpg

Sets 3 Reps 10 Rest 0sec

Get into a press-up position holding the handles of the suspension trainer. Think “wax on, wax off” and circle each hand outwards one at a time, keeping your abs tight. If you don’t have access to a suspension trainer, use a pair of small towels on a smooth floor.

1B Fall-out

bicep curls.jpg

Sets 3 Reps 10 Rest 60sec

Get into a press-up position holding the handles of the suspension trainer, let your hands slide away from you above your head, keeping your core and glutes braced so you don’t fall too quickly. Pause at the top of the move, then reverse. Increase the challenge by moving your feet under the TRX anchor point.

Day 2: Anti-Rotation

The trick here is to resist torque on your torso, spurring your obliques into action.

1A Kneeling Pallof press

Sets 3 Reps 10 Rest 0sec

Kneel on the floor holding a cable machine handle or one end of a resistance band in both hands close to your chest. Push out – you should feel resistance trying to tug you to the side. Pause for one second, then pull your hands back in. You can also do this move standing, or hold at full extension for extra isometric strength.

1B One-arm chest press

dumbbell-chest-press-exercise-illustration.jpg

Sets 3 Reps 10 Rest 60sec

Lie on a bench holding a dumbbell in one hand, angling it in slightly to protect your shoulders. Keeping your feet on the floor and your shoulder blades together and tight, press the dumbbell overhead. No bench? Do this move on the floor – but don’t support yourself with your free arm.

Day 3: Hip Flexion

This has gained a bad reputation in abs work, but done right – with a neutral spine – it will make you more efficient in any other movement. Here’s how to do it properly.

1A Gym ball roll-out

82672632-fille-de-dessin-animé-de-vecteur-faire-des-exercices-de-fitness-ball.jpg

Sets 3 Reps 10 Rest 0sec

Start in a tuck position with your shins on a gym ball. Push backwards until your legs are straight and your hands are in front of your shoulders, then brace your core to return to the start.

1B Stir-the-pot

Sets 3 Reps 10 Rest 60sec

With your forearms resting on a gym ball, move them slowly in a circle as if stirring a pot. Complete all the reps in one direction before reversing.

Day 4: Anti-Lateral Flexion

These moves resist sideways motion with your lower back – useful whether you’re carrying a suitcase or hoisting it into an overhead locker.

1 Landmine press

alison-brie-ab-workout-front-squat-press-1515522329.jpg

Sets 3 Reps 10 each side Rest 30sec

Wedge one end of a barbell into a corner or weight plate, then grip the other end in both hands. Press it overhead and turn slightly to one side, then the other.

2 Suitcase deadlift

Sets 3 Reps 5 each side Rest 45sec

Stand next to a heavy dumbbell, kettlebell or – if you’re feeling confident – barbell. Squat and grip it in one hand, then lift it as if you’re doing a deadlift, driving your hips forwards to stand up straight. To increase the challenge, switch to a suitcase carry. Walk 20m with the dumbbell, then switch hands.

  3. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
