Do you hate doing crunches?
Most people do.
It’s the same crunching motion over and over again with little to no results.
What’s the purpose of crunches anyway?
If you said, “to get a six pack.” or “to tone and flatten the belly.”
If you have a layer of fat over your stomach and are performing hundreds of ab exercises, you are only making your belly bigger.
How’s that possible?
Good question but let me ask you another one first.
If I want bigger arms what would you suggest I do to get them? Use exercises that will build and strengthen my biceps, right?
How about legs? If I want to build and strengthen my legs, what would I do for them? I do leg exercises.
So, again if I want a thin, lean midsection, why is the general consensus to do excessive abdominal exercises? It could be due to misleading infomercials or uneducated personal trainers.
I also think people would rather do crunches, even though they hate them, much more than eating healthy and having the discipline to stick it out until the beautiful abs hidden under that layer of belly fat to surface.
Now that we are clear that doing countless numbers of ab exercises isn’t going to give us a thin waste and toned stomach, now I’ll tell what will.
First, we do need a strong core. It helps prevent injuries such as back pain and discomfort.
There are many ab exercises that will assist with strengthening the core, but you don’t have to do as many as you think.
Hanging leg raises and planks are great for strengthening the core.
The second, and more important part of getting great results is nutrition.
The greatest rewards in life come from laser focused discipline and relentless determination.
It’s too easy to fall into the “everyone else is doing it” routine and never reach your ultimate goal. If you really want the toned body you see on everyone else, you have to give up, to go up.
Stay the course with your nutrition program and you will see what you’re looking for in your own mirror!
Most nutrition and diet programs will leave you failing and miserable. When I talk about a supportive nutrition program, I’m referring to Trinity’s “Rule of 3.”
Sometimes it’s hard to prepare meals that are healthy and nutritious and really taste good.
