So many people do not realize that the biggest myth in getting abs is the exercises. Doing sit-ups, crunches, and leg raises is not the best way to get abs. Actually it's probably one of the worst. Everyday I see people wasting so much time and effort focusing on ab workouts and routines, when instead they should be focusing on getting rid of the stomach fat surrounding their abs. Working out your abs everyday is not going to improve your metabolism like full body high-intensity interval training, and a professionally designed meal plan can. I'm sure it's hard to take in, the biggest mistake I see people making while trying to uncover their 6 pack abs is focusing on ab workouts. If you actually want to get visible abs it's imperative you find a good exercise plan and a good diet program. You want focus on healthy foods in the diet program, and when I say healthy foods I mean foods that are unprocessed and are as close to its natural form as possible. A good workout regimen will consist of high intensity interval training.
Everyone is constantly asking me what the best workouts are to get six pack abs. And so many times they seemed so surprised when I tell them the answers IS NOT ab works like sit-ups and crunches. Most people actually believe that ab workouts are what help you lose the stomach fat. This is definitely the biggest misconceptions in the weight loss industry. The fact is that no matter how many situps or crunches you do it will never help you lose fat. Almost every one seems to have some type of fat covering up their ads whether it's a little bit or a lot can vary greatly. What doesn't vary so greatly is that each of these people that have fat on their wants to get rid of it, but most of these people are looking for the answers in the wrong place. Most people are searching and doing the wrong exercises to lose abdominal fat. Most people who want to lose their stomach fat are looking for new ab exercise, hyped up ab machines or rollers, and even weight loss pill. The problem is that abs specific workouts, or workouts that target the abs, are not effective and will not burn the fat off of your belly.
The fountain of youth was once thought of as an actual place where one could drink in the the water of eternal life. A healthy, vibrant, youthful existence could be had simply by partaking of the waters. Not so these days. Most people look under a knife for a solution to their aging bodies. Call your local plastic surgeon if you want to achieve a young look. But the feeling of youth can be had without surgery or injections. There is no magic potion or pill for keeping a young appearance and a vigorous life, but there is one very reliable source of vitality and you can benefit from it at any age. Exercise. Exercise is it's own magic self, helping to lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers and osteoporosis to name just a few of the many benefits of regular exercise. Though not the only answer to an aging body, regular exercise is the predominant factor in finding that so-called fountain of youth. Research has shown that most chronic health conditions we experience as we age are brought on by disuse rather than aging.
Tight butt... want one? I'm going to give you 2 easy exercises for a firm butt. Tight butt exercise #1: Deep Squats This is probably the best butt exercise you can do. Because the gluteus maximus is the biggest and most superficial of the 3 butt muscles... and makes up the largest portion of the shape and appearance of your butt.... the squat is the perfect exercise to build up the butt since it targets the biggest underlying muscle (the gluteus maximus). Now, if you're worried about getting bigger thighs while trying to get a tight butt in jeans look, then you don't want to make the mistake of doing a shallow squat. You need to do a deep squat. Stand with your feet about hip-width apart. Now, squat down while keeping your back straight and abs in. Squat down so that your upper legs go below parallel to the ground. The deeper you go, the more it targets your butt. So squat your butt down as close to the ground as possible. It's harder to do, but very much worth the extra effort.

Lying face down, simply squeeze your butt together as hard as you can. Keep this squeeze going for at least 15 seconds. Ideally, try to squeeze for 1 minute each time. If you can't do that right away, that's fine. Just build up to longer squeezes. The goal is to do this for a total of 5 minutes everyday.

Do you have little time for exercise in your present lifestyle? Do you hate the idea of joining a gym? Do you want to get fit and healthy, but don't know where to start? It's easy! Walking is one of the easiest, most enjoyable and profitable forms of exercise. All you need is a good pair of trainers and motivation. Government guidelines recommend that every adult should aim to walk at least 10, 000 steps per day. For those without pedometers, that equates to 90 minutes, or 5 miles, of walking for the average person. It may sound a lot today, but 50 years ago, when there were less cars and public transport wasn't as accessible, 10, 000 steps was normal. Today, most people only average 1000 - 3000 steps per day, and are eating between two to three times more than we did 50 years ago. No wonder we're getting fatter! You may not have an excessively outrageous diet, but if you're not working then you will put on weight. The equation is simple - calories in verses calories out. You can try all the faddy Hollywood diets you want, but at the end of the day, it all boils down to this simple equation.
Increase Motivation with a Pedometer It is recommended that we walk at least 10, 000 steps per day - that's approximately 90 minutes or 5 miles of walking. Wearing a pedometer is an easy way to track your steps each day and will help you set goals to walk more. Wear the pedometer every day for one week, put it on first thing in the morning, and take it off last thing at night. Record your steps each day and at the end of the week you'll have an average amount of daily steps. You might be surprised how many (or how few) steps you actually walk each day! A reasonable goal for most people is to increase average daily steps each week by 500 per day until you can easily average 10, 000 per day. For example, if you currently average 3000 steps per day, your goal for week one is 3500 per day. In week 2 aim for 4000 and by the end of week 14, you'll be averaging 10, 000 steps each day.

The most important aspect of walking as an exercise is making part of your regular routine. Get used to walking at the same time everyday, be it first thing in the morning, after work or after dinner. It will soon become a habit so you won't even have to think about it... just put on your shoes and go. Here are some tips that will help make your walking routing a success: Wear comfortable, appropriate clothing. T-shirts and shorts are fine for warmer weather but in the winter you will need to invest in a fleece and maybe a hat and some gloves. Avoid sore feet and blisters with supportive, comfortable shoes. They should stabilise your ankle yet provide enough shock-absorption. If you are unsure which shoes are suitable, visit your local sports shop. Ensure you walking route is safe and well lit. If you are walking at dusk or night, make sure the site is well-populated and wear reflective clothing - walking with a friend is also a good idea. If you are elderly or walk alone avoid uneven ground that could cause you to fall.
