Its been dedication in the gym for the most part, because anyone who knows me well, knows I don’t want to change what and how much I eat. I would rather put in the extra time being active than change my diet. Hello! I am a foodie and eating is where I find much of my joy. Haha.
I have found that my ab routine cannot merely consist of sit ups alone.
My ab routine 2-4x a week;
1: As mentioned above, sit up’s aren’t everything. Yes, I still attempt to work in about 100-250 sits a workout, however have added in obliques, lower back and transverse workouts as well. I have found that this has really made the biggest difference. Beware, if you’re anything like me, take it easy on lower back workout when you begin. I dove right in and could barely move the next few days.
2: For upper/ lower back an oblique workouts, stand up. I have seen much greater success while doing standing rather than laying down workouts.
3: As well, as mentioned above, I didn’t and don’t want to change when and how much I eat. Therefore, my motto for myself is, “Eat better, not less”. Protein, dark leafy greens, rich fibers, etc and I load up with as large of servings of them as I want. Yes, I still indulge in dessert and pizza. I refuse to count calories and limit what I eat. I simply attempt to load up on healthier options first and believe me, after a while, your body gets used to it and the cravings are significantly reduced.
