3 Tips To Get A Flat Stomach

So what Do You Need To Get A Flat Stomach (aka six pack abs)?
Greg Carbone, Monmouth County Boot Camp trainer, back again for another guest post for my buddy Tristan. I am actually slightly surprised I was invited back after that first post. Luckily for all of you, Tristan and I will be taking Connecticut by storm in the very near future. Watch Out!
Gym, Tan, Laundry to get a flat stomach.
Really? Well, 1 out of 3 is correct. It is actually gym, diet, posture to fasttrack your way towards flat abs.
1. GYM: Your gym workout should consist of something similiar to my Monmouth County Boot Camp or Tristan’s killer bootcamp class. High intensity weight training intertwined with high intensity cardio interval sessions will start melting fat off of places you can’t even see in the mirror.
The standard rule of thumb is that if you can have a pleasant conversation with your classmates, then you better push that butt a little harder. Get moving!
2. DIET! DIET! DIET! Before you get too disappointed, I am referring to diet as what you put into your mouth, not as the action of starving yourself with that pre-packaged shit that Dan Marino eats. Meat is meant to be refrigerated. If it is in a cardboard box, then please do yourself a favor and pass on it.
Having a solid diet is rather simple to be honest. I like to tell my Monmouth County Boot Camp members to imagine all of the aisles in the grocery store. Then I ask them to draw a path around the outside aisles. Follow that path and you will be ahead of nearly 99% of people. Fresh vegetables, dairy, lean meats, fruits, olive oil (for cooking), and whole grains should make up your diet.
3. Posture. Do you sit at a desk all day? Do your shoulders come forward? Does your workout consist of mainly chest and biceps work and very little back work? You probably answered yes at least once to those questions. Who cares though, right?
Posture can play a major role in the way you look…and the way your stomach looks. By keeping shoulders back and sucking in your stomach and holding it tight, you can reduce your waistline by nearly 2 inches. Seriously. Try it.
Hope those quick tips will get you on yor way to a flatter, firmer stomach. Until next time…
