How many days of rest do your abs need in between workouts?
Yes, they do. Think of it this way: you do not grow muscle in the gym. What you do in the gym should stimulate muscle growth outside the gym, which means that recovery is… as important as exercise. Exercise is like medicine: too little is not effective and too much is counter-productive. In both, it's important to get enough without getting too much. It's best to do both cardio and weight (strength) training for fat loss. Cardio will burn extra energy during and immediately after your walks. Weight training will build muscle, which is your metabolic furnace that will burn calories 24 hours a day. It is not necessary to do intense cardio (such as running) for fat loss. The best cardio is mild exercise such as brisk walking. It is sustainable and it will not interfere with proper strength training. An excellent program is to go for a brisk walk six days of the week. The best time to walk is before your first meal of the day. Walking two miles will retard additional fat gain, while walking 3 to 6 miles on average will help you lose fat. "Brisk" means walking at a 4 mph pace. If you have not been walking, build up to that very slowly. You need not do all your daily walking in one session. It's only necessary to do proper weight training for about 45 minutes every 4 or 5 days. (Do a whole body routine. Focus on the major, compound exercises, which are full squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, dips, and chins. Learn proper exercise technique and do it on every rep.) So doing mild cardio such as brisk walking is fine with one rest day per week. Doing proper strength training is fine with only one workout every 4 or 5 days. So both have rest days, and, together, they will greatly accelerate your fat loss. You can use this sustainable program until your dotage. If you have not been doing the weight training, you will find that, unlike cardio, which can be boring, it's actually fun. If you adopt and sustain this program, you will love your results. Train in good health! (Before significantly changing your exercise habits, you may first wish to obtain the blessing of your physician.) ----
If you are reading this, it may be because you want to lose weight, and get a flat stomach. So I will share some secrets about burning stomach fat, and some tips on properly l…osing weight. Many sources have told me a similar thing. Something that may be surprising to you at first, but when you think about it, makes perfect sense. Many people think to burn off body fat, you need to do tons of crunches and sit-ups, but the truth is, these can actually make your stomach bigger! These exercises can help build muscle, which is a good thing, but doesn't really get rid of the layer of fat covering the muscle. Therefore, the muscle builds up underneath the fat, making your stomach appear larger. To burn more fat, you should do more exercises involving your whole body. And they don't have to be boring activities either, they can even be your favorite sport! Another thing that people believe which is a misconception is that in order to lose weight, you must perform vigorous physical activity for long periods of time. Not that losing weight doesn't take some time and effort, but you don't necessarily need to spend long periods of time working out. All the little things you do throughout the day really add up. So you don't have to work go work out in a gym for hours. To more effectively lose weight and get a flat stomach, you should not only exercise, but change your eating habits. Everyone knows the basic guidelines on what you should eat (eat foods with less fat and sugar, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, ect.) Now i realize there are certain junk foods that claim to be healthier. One example is ice cream. Just because an ice cream says fat-free, doesn't mean you should eat it. Usually they will add more of something else to substitute for the fat. For example, they may add more sugar to make it taste better. Another junk food people try to make healthier, is chips. They say things like "baked" (rather than fried). I'm not denying the fact that baked chips are better than fried, but chips are chips. And I don't think any type of chip is necessarily good for you. So if you are trying to lose weight, just avoid junk foods period. Another thing you should change besides what you eat, is how you eat. If you eat slower, and take the time to taste and enjoy your food, you will be surprised at how much less you eat. And how much better your food tastes! There are many ways people try to lose weight that are not always very healthy. One thing you should not do is use diet pills or do special diet programs that promise quick results. Although some types may help you lose weight, there are much healthier ways to do it. Another thing, is eating disorders. Most eating disorders include starving yourself or throwing up food which is not healthy and has many damaging affects to your body. And here's an important tip to remember: you should not try to lose more than 1/2 a pound to a pound per week. SO EAT HEALTHY AND FOLLOW THESE WEIGHT LOSS TIPS TO LOSE WEIGHT. (I'm not really an expert on this, but i believe this information is pretty acurate. I hoped this helped, and good luck!:)
Getting a visible, defined six pack is mostly a matter of reducing body fat, not developing the abdominal muscles. You can do all the intense abdominal work you want, but unti…l you reduce your body fat to around 10%, you won't see any results since your abs will be covered in fat.
No, but if you did it 5 times spread throughout the day it might. I personally like hip hop abs, The music may not be as great as they say, but Sean T is a really great train…er, He really motivates you. So i would recommend Doing the two longer videos, switch everyday. Good luck!
anywhere from 10 to 30 mins depending on the workout
Combine cardio with crunches. The muscles are there, but most people have fat over them. You want to lose the fat and make them bigger.
Hi , you should probably spend 1-2 days of rest between your workouts. it also depends how hard you workout at your workout. if you do an easy workout then only rest one… day, and if you work hard, the rest two days. you should workout 4 times a week if you want big muscles that show. drink lots of water and dont eat junk period.
You need to wait at least 48 hours before working chest again, the longer you rest the lower the risk of overtraining
I would highly recommend between 24 hours and 72 hours. That is between 1 to 3 days.
You are 19 years old 170 pounds how many calories should you eat to get six pack abs if you workout 1.5 to 2 hours a day and play hockey for an hour a day?
You're young, so your metabolism shouldn't be an issue. You can be as thin as a rail and still not have a six-pack. What you need is an intense sit-up routine, along with with… your 1.5 to 2 hour workout/cardio activity. You really need both of them to be successful. Your carb and calorie intake should decrease as the day passes. At night-time, stay away from these, and bring in the fiber and protein. That will give your body something to eat at during sleep. As for the sit-ups, work on this routine. It's good enough to get you started, and then you can tinker with it from there. You won't be able to do all the reps the first time, probably. That's ok. Find proper form on the internet. After you can do it, then repeat. Do this work-out every other day. Six-pack formula: 2 min. plank 10 leg lifts 10 crunches 10 sit-ups 1.5 min. plank 1 min. side plank (one min. for each side) 10 clam shells 10 bicycles 10 leg lifts (yes, again) 10 side sit-ups (one set of 10 per side) 1.5 min. plank repeat*
yea, if you laugh 100 times its the same amount of 15 minutes of an ab workout.
You can order videos online or you can watch you tube for the long list of ab workouts. You tube i think would be the easiest place because youre not paying for anything and y…ou can follow the video very easy.
