The Secret for 6 Pack Abs

Initiate all moves from the core, especially meal-time moves.

I'm so sick of the stupid little ads on facebook, and elsewhere that talk about "one weird old trick" or "the secret to abs you won't believe.

I've clicked on as many of them of them as I could stomach, and they eventually say the same thing after the big sales pitch. It's never anything more than lowering your levels of bodyfat, and exercising the core muscles a few times a week with consistency.

You might find it helpful to think of the core as made up of 5 sections: upper abs, lower abs, obliques, transverse abdominis, and the lower back muscles. It takes a variety of exercises to target each section. So fall in love with circuit training.

Remember: Consistency isn't the same thing as constantly. Over-training is just as ineffective as no training. And don't waste your time following a workout plan until you get your nutritional plan inline. Feed to succeed!!!

Also, if you want to look better in a swimsuit, that is nothing to be ashamed of. You might find that the people who accuse you of being vain and narcissitic, are just people that hate themselves and want to see you fail. They want you to fail so they can somehow feel better about themselves, and the sorry physical state they've created for themselves. Sometimes the best way to deal with this type of sad person is to just walk away. Or kick them. Anger is a step up the emotional scale from depression, so in a sense you're doing them a great service.

Ok, here's the big secret again:
Initiate all moves from the core, especially meal-time moves.

If you're unhappy with the condition of you're body, it got that way because you are unhappy.

A lot of people think they have no underlying psychological reasons for their weight issues, they just need to lose pounds. I say bullshit, you're underlying to yourself.
If you're unhappy with the condition of you're body, you need to realize it got that way because you are unhappy. You will not be happy if your body changes. No matter how drastically, you'll still find fault with it. There is a direct relationship between the chemicals your brain produces and sends throughout your system, the food you eat, and your emotional state. If you don't want toxicity in your system you need to take control of your thoughts. You're the only one who can. Blaming others just supports a victim myth. Get your thinking straightened out, then take care of your diet, and then create a workout plan. Those 3 steps taken out of order will create some minor results, but won't necessarily re-create your body. Thinking empowering thoughts, eating a healthy diet, and working out consistently and productively just feels better. And it's a much more fun way of living than 99% of the people you'll encounter today.
