Alright man, many things factor into obtaining a six-pack. The fact is though, you already have a six-pack (everyone does). It’s just covered by fat (either a thin layer, or a huge stack).

So, the first important aspect is diet. You MUST eat right to obtain the best results. No more greasy, fast food shit. You need alot of whole grain foods (wheat, cereals, oats, ect.), next you will need to eat more vegetables and fruits, and of course good quality protein (chicken, nuts, fish, hell even a protein shake), and NO SODAS whatsoever… water, water, and more water. Try to eat 6 small meals a day (this will boost your metabolism and help you loose that layer of fat over your abs)

Next, Fitness. You will need to do alot of cardio exercise to help you loose some weight around the waist. Run, treadmill, stair climber, ect. Along with that you will need good core workouts (body planks, sit ups, push ups, and crunches. Remember sit ups alone won’t get you anywhere. You have to do alot more workouts than just sit ups.

Keep up with the exercise routine and diet, and please be patient. Results won’t happen over night.

Best of luck! 🙂

This sounds like a question you should have asked before you spend a lot of time and treasure on your education.

OH&S is a rapidly growing field and virtually all industries hire OH&S Professionals, from hospitals to manufacturing to construction. Go after a position you have some background in.

Does anyone else think there should a test before able to give health tips?

Question by Khelben: Does anyone else think there should a test before able to give health tips?
Argh I’ve read so many advice from all these people and there’s soooooo many misconceptions that hurt people instead of helping.

1) You resistance train before cardio because in the beginning your using up quick stored energy instead of the fat on your body. Cardio burns more fat so do it when all the stored energy has been used.

2) Toning does not exist. Tone is just the state of your relaxed muscle. If you do high reps low weight your muscles build more endurance and firmer they don’t look any better or have any better definition.

3) Doing ab exercises does not give you abs. There is no such thing as “spot reduction.” Losing the fat on your stomach requires dieting and cardio.

4) Doing ab exercises w/o additional weight only gives you endurance not muscle growth.

5) You can’t exercises crazily and not diet and expect good results.

6) There are NO quick fixes, any dramatic change takes time to do it right and to do it well.
Give some additional misconceptions.

I’m 29 and 5’1 and I weigh 190lbs. My goal is to be able to go down to at least 170lbs or less than that from now till xmas. I have already began eating more healthier, I have stopped eating candies, fried food, sodas, bread, tortillas. But I havent began exercising. I have a stationary bike at home and was wondering if that is a good exercise and how long I would have to be on it everyday to get some results?? I have a big butt and thighs and would like to either tone them up. I’m not good at counting calories so would like a diet and exercise plan easy to keep up with. I will be moving into apt in about 2wks that has gym so would like to know of any ideas to do right now at home as far as exercise goes to help me out. Any other diet and exercise tips will be greatly appreciated. Do you think its possible to lose that weight and be able to reach my goal??? Any other good diets or exercises please let me know??? Thank You

if you aim for 1-2 lbs a week, it is possible to reach your target weight.

1) Eat more steam food, lean meat, lean protein, vegies and fruits

2) Cut out the junk food, soda drinks and snacks. Get rid of the junk food from the cupboards! Eat cashew / almond nuts instead.

3) drink plenty of water / green tea

4) Exercise – look at combining weights and cardio into your program. you can look at alternating upper and lower body exercises without rest, say bicep curls, then lunges , rest and repeat. With cardio, try sprinting 100m, jog 100m and repeat.

Here’s a review link to a program

5) Have 5-6 healthy meals a day(1 plate portions) to keep your body satisfied

6) if you have cravings drink water or eat fruits
here’s an article to a healthy diet

7) have an action plan for long term goals, start off with small goals and increase it gradually over time. And you will see in your size drop.

8) form a support group. Make yourself accountable to someone like your parents/relatives/friends/partners. Best yet, get them to participate in a healthy lifestyle.

Good luck

Not being able to do situps or some pilates exercises without someone holding down feet: Is it a core issue?

Question by Niki T: Not being able to do situps or some pilates exercises without someone holding down feet: Is it a core issue?
I’m wondering because it seems that every time I watch a pilates instruction video, they seem to have no issue doing the moves without someone holding their feet down and I do.

I am not fat but I am slightly larger than the fitness models on these things and I carry a lot of my weight in my bust so is this just a matter of being too top heavy or if I keep at it, can I eventually be able to do it on my own?

Answer by Pinklovaa
keep trying. don’t quit because of a minor set back. don’t worry. once you’ve done it so many times, you will be fine on your own. try putting heavy books on your feet instead of a person. technically that is doing it on your own. =) Just kidding. Don’t stop trying!
