Don’t compare yourself to anyone
“If you’re still on the journey to building your own six-pack abs, don’t find an Instagram personality to copy. Don’t compare yourself to the person next to you. Instead, notice how after every class, every healthy meal, you feel stronger. Most importantly, remember that when you see your core muscles start to appear as a result of your hard work, you can’t just quit. Having six-pack abs is a lifetime commitment to healthy eating, consistent workouts, and embracing what your genetics gave you.” – Sarah Buie, 32, studio manager and coach at [solidcore].
Do HIIT sprinting workouts
“I attribute my six-pack abs to the Mission Lean sprinting workouts that I do on the track and the treadmill. When I do my sprints I run at 85 to 100 percent of my absolute maximum capacity – my legs literally cannot go any faster – for one to three minutes depending on the workout. I take 30 seconds or less for a break in between. I never linger during the workout. It’s not long – maybe a total of 15 mins for the sprints (plus a warmup and cool down). Then I rest afterward. The sprinting workouts are so intense that my body not only burns fat in the actual workout but for days afterward.” – Lyuda Bouzinova, 31, Mission Lean co-founder and ACE-certified personal trainer and a fitness nutrition specialist.
Make sure your diet is on point
“Nowadays everybody wants six-pack abs. While there’s no one real secret in achieving six-pack abs, let me emphasise on how important it is to focus on your diet! I make sure to eat enough lean protein to help build muscle and I refuel with complex carbs after my workout.” – Quianna Burgess, 34, RSP Nutrition athlete and personal trainer.
