Q&A: Defined Abs

Blog Article ImageQuestion:  “I’m having problems trying to obtain defined abs.  What is the best way to get my abs where I want them to be?”

Answer:  "Abs can be some of the most challenging muscles to chisel! Someone once told me that "abs are made in the kitchen" and I found this to be true in my life and the lives of my clients. In order to get those abs tight and defined, I recommend being consistent with a clean diet, doing cardio regularly and working your abs 2-3 times per week.

Eating a clean diet means letting go of processed foods like fast food, sodium filled frozen dinners, refined sugars, white bread/pastas, etc. Instead, fill your fridge with lean proteins, fresh produce and complex carbs like yams, brown rice, whole wheat bread, and quinoa. Aim to get in some cardiovascular exercise for 30-45 minutes, 5-6 days per week. This can be running, a spin class, hiking, kickboxing or anything that gets your heart rate up!

I like to work my abs circuit style! Here is an example of an ab workout that you could do:
·       1 set of 25 crunches
·       1 set of 20 russian twists holding 5 lb dumbell
·       hold a plank for 30 sec
·       1 set of  15-20 lying leg raises
REST 45 seconds then repeat the entire circuit 2 more times (total of 3
cycles)
Try this circuit 2 times per week and leave 1 to 2 days between workouts.

Good luck and go get those tight abs!"
