6 Powerful Exercises to Strengthen Your Abs

Let's admit it. If you are here, you probably want a six pack or to lose weight around your abdominal area.
A lot of people in the United States want to lose weight on their abs.
When we are used to picking up a large soda and eating a large fast food meal for lunch, it becomes apparent very quickly that we have problems.
Today I want to talk about 6 powerful exercises to strengthen your abs.
We are going to work on building that six pack!

1. Abdominal Crunch
Abdominal crunch or the crunch is a very great exercise for building your ab walls.
The problem that many people have is that their lower back hurts when they do crunches.
I have the perfect solution for this problem.
When you go to do your crunches put a pillow under your lower back to give your back greater stability.

2. The Plank
This exercise is fantastic for its use in ripping the lower abs.
It has the same position as starting a push-up accept that you don't do the push-up, you hold it.
The plank has been used for multiple purposes.
You can lift one leg at a time up off the ground to add a variation.

3. Bridge
The bridge is one of those exercises that is easier to do.
As you get into your crunch position, lift your butt off the ground with your hands flat on the ground.
You may have to do more of these, but they will give a burn to your abs.

4. Supermans
The Superman exercise is great because you lay flat on your stomach with arms and legs stretched out above and below your core. You lift your arms and legs off the ground at the same time.
This will give a workout for your back and abs.

5. Running High Knees
Running High Knees is one of those workouts that you can get tired on quickly, but it beneficial to your abs.
Basically you are standing in one place, running in place, but trying to get your knees as high as you can.
You can start off your workout with the running high knees to warm up and get the blood flowing.

6. Side Ab Crunch
Side ab crunches are another powerful exercise to give you that ripped look you want.
You sit in a regular crunch position except that you put your legs all the way to the side on the ground.
Then you do a regular crunch and it works the outside abdominal muscles.

Do these exercises until failure for five times a week to get a six pack that is ripped.
It may take longer for some people as you may need to start a diet to lose the fat on top of the abdominal muscle wall before you begin these exercises, but you can do it!
I believe in you guys, and I believe that if you do these exercises until failure, five to six days a week that you will get the six pack that you guys are looking for!

10 Weight Loss Tips for Women!

If you are a woman that has trouble wearing certain pieces of clothing because you don't think you look good, then this blog post is for you.
If you are someone that just needs a few tips because you don't have a clue on what to do, then read on.
Here are the 10 tips for weight loss for women!

1. Go Walking
If you are someone that loves to walk and doesn't mind a little sweat, (Many people don't like sweat even though they know that weight loss comes with it) then take a little walk around the block or a five minute walk. Even a five minute walk can be beneficial and can add up to big weight loss in the end!

2.  Add, Don't Subtract
Adding fruits to a meal for desert or as a snack can be beneficial because your stomach fills up quicker.
Also, adding vegetables to your soups and stews is good as it gives a healthier stand point.
Add fruits and vegetables to start toward energy, to feed the muscle, to burn the fat.

3. Drink More Water
This is a somewhat cliche tip for women and men in weight loss, but it is essential.
Water is like the lubricant of your body and even more energy that your body gets as it runs more efficiently.
Drink 48 oz. a day or three water bottles.
This goal is great because its a good amount of water without going overboard.

4. Eat When You're Hungry
So often we eat and splurge, even when we aren't hungry.
This tip goes hand in hand with #3 as we are often thirsty, not hungry.
Take a sip of water and step back before you go and splurge.

5. Share Your Dinner
Share your dinner with your husband.
By sharing your dinner, both of you are happily satisfied instead of overstuffed.
For those of you that love eating a huge plate worth of food, get used to eating half of it.
This will add up in the long run.

6. Stop Eating 3-4 Hours Before Bedtime
This tip is something that not many of us really consider.
By eating right up to when you are going to sleep you consume the calories and fat that, in turn, sticks right onto your stomach, adding to the fat.
Stop eating 3-4 hours before bedtime to give adequate time to digest.

7. Enjoy a Treat
Sometimes you just want a treat or to treat yourself to something that tastes good.
Reward yourself for doing well on your weight loss at least once a week.
Many people are loss-a-holics that go cold turkey, and they don't reward themselves.
You set yourself up for failure when you don't get a reward because your body begins to wonder what it has to do to get something good.

8. Food En Fuego (On Fire)
Add spices or chilies to your food to add a new spice.
Hot or spicy foods take longer to digest and boost your metabolism.
Make it spicy and enjoy a new flavor to savor.

9. Use Something Besides Food to Cope with Stress
Many people eat loads of food within a few minutes because they have a test in school coming or a deadline at work coming up soon. Read a good book or listen to music that relaxes you.
Keeping a journal or meditating can also be great for getting rid of stress without eating.
Avoid the unnecessary calories that come from eating from stress.

10. Eat at Home
Fast food is a ginormous amount of calories and fat that you absolutely don't need.
Eat at home and make a home cooked meal.
It will be healthier and will be better for you in the long run.

Here are 5 tips to give you guys a weight loss boost!

1. Take some time and plan your meals ahead for automated success. If it is a bad food choice and its not on the list, then don't eat it.

2. Oats are your friends! For a filling, healthy, and safe breakfast, eat a cup of oatmeal in the morning. This will prevent you from overeating in the afternoon by starting your metabolism early.

3. There are foods with healthy fats such as olives, salmon and walnuts that will help you feel satisfied. They are natural hunger depressants.

4. Skipping meals can cause your body to go into a fat-storing starvation mode, making it harder to burn calories. This means that eating a few healthy snacks in between three meals a day will keep the metabolism going at all times. 

5. Go bonkers with nuts! Eating a handful of nuts will help you stay full. Try soaking them in water for a different texture. Almonds are the best kind of nut to eat as they are lower in fat.

5 Minutes to a Skinnier You!

Yes, it is possible to get a skinnier you with five minutes a day!
How are we going to do this?
We can do this by taking advantage of a couple of body weight exercises.
Let's get into the short workout!

1. 40 Push-ups
This first step in the workout is essential for the livelihood of the 5 minute program.
After stretching, begin the push-ups.
The 40 push-ups can be a little bit intimidating and tiring, but they are good for your whole upper body and core. The 40 push-ups should take no more than a minute to a minute and a half.

2. 40 Sit-ups
Just like the first step, step 2 is important as well.
After the push-ups you will begin to feel the fatigue.
Don't begin to cheat if you feel to fatigued.
Take a small ten second break and then go back into the sit-ups and finish them.

It should take WAY under 5 minutes to finish these two exercises.
You are done after the 40 sit-ups and push-ups.
I have done these for three weeks and have dropped a good amount of weight as well as gained considerable muscle.
Do these two simple exercises and get to the skinnier you!
